The other shoe in the debate over bathroom laws, inevitably, has dropped. A question that has been asked hypothetically — what is to prevent a pervert pretending to be transgender from entering a bathroom earmarked for the opposite sex? — has now been answered in the real world.

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has made undercover recordings that reveal that the people responsible for policing bathrooms aren’t invariably going to do the job they have been entrusted to do.

Perhaps the most egregious of the hidden camera interviews was with Jill Moffitt, Associate Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs and Title IX Administrator at the University of North Carolina-Asheville. When our male undercover journalist told Moffitt that he enjoys taking snapchats of females in the women’s bathroom, the following conversation transpired:

MALE JOURNALIST: There has been some snapchats but they self-destruct.

UNC ADMINISTRATOR: Well they don’t really self-destruct.

MALE JOURNALIST: I hope they self-destruct.

ADMINISTRATOR: You’re taking snap chats of women? You’re alerting me to what we call “sexual exploitation.” Don’t tell me anything more…. Don’t tell me anything more…. When people take … don’t say anything, just listen.

The investigative organization also sent a female journalist claiming enjoys going to the men’s room for purposes of sexual excitement to speak with Deborah Miles, director of the Center of Diversity Education. Here is part of that exchange:

FEMALE JOURNALIST:  I mean, I think it’s … in this sick way, kind of … exciting.

DIVERSITY DIRECTOR: [laughs] Yeah, because you’re not “supposed to do it.”

JOURNALIST:  You’re not supposed to do it, and, I mean, there’s guys in there! I like guys!

DIRECTOR:  Yeah, it’s a turn-on.

JOURNALIST:  I mean, is that wrong to say?

DIRECTOR: No, it’s not wrong to say.
