Texas Representative Louie Gohmert last week defended a recently approved law in North Carolina that targets the LGBT community.

Approved during a one-day special session, House Bill 2 blocks cities from enacting ordinances that prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity and bars students attending public institutions from using the bathroom that does not conform to their gender at birth.

During an appearance on Washington Week, Gohmert, a Republican, told host and Family Research Council (FRC) President Tony Perkins that he would have likely used the law as a teen to enter the girls' restroom.

“When it comes to this current legislation where – in most of the world, in most of the religions, the major religions, you have men and you have women, and there are some abnormalities. But for heaven’s sake, I was as good a kid as you can have growing up. I never drank alcohol till I was legal, never to, still, use an illegal drug. But in the seventh grade if the law had been that all I had to do was say, ‘I’m a girl,’ and I got to go into the girls’ restroom, I don’t know if I could’ve withstood the temptation just to get educated back in those days,” Gohmert said.

Gohmert went on to say that businesses opposed to the law are “telling states that you have to let boys into little girls' restrooms or we're pulling our businesses. It's just the height of lunacy.”
