To each their own, but it sounds like House Bill 2 is still riling up the vocal minority.

The transgender assistant director of an LGBTQ student center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) is leaving his job in protest of HB2, the infamous “transgender bathroom law.”

Angel Celeste Collie left Chapel Hill, the state’s flagship campus, to become the assistant director of the Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity at rival Duke University, The Daily Tar Heel reports.

Collie attributes his move to discomfort and uncertainty following the passage of HB2, a state law requiring people to use public restrooms assigned to their legal gender.
