North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory this week continued to defend a law that targets the LGBT community.

According to the Winston-Salem Journal, McCrory said that he will continue to fight for a “respect for privacy.”

The law, known as House Bill 2, was approved during a one-day special session in March. It blocks cities from enacting LGBT protections and prohibits transgender people from using the bathroom of their choice in government buildings, including schools.

The law's passage led to dueling lawsuits between North Carolina and the U.S. Department of Justice after the agency asked the state not to enforce the law's bathroom provision.

Speaking at a homeschooling conference in Benton, McCrory talked about the advantages of home schooling.

“One other advantage of home schooling is you aren't going to have the president, the attorney general or the mayor of Charlotte telling you what bathroom [to use],” he said.

McCrory said that kids with “special needs and unique needs,” a reference to transgender students, should use unisex bathrooms.

“But don't change the norms that have been working for generations,” he added.

McCrory's remarks received a standing ovation, the paper reported.
