*It’s no surprise that conservative pundit Stacey Dash supports bathroom laws that require transgender people to use only public restrooms that align with their birth-assigned sex, but her suggestion for an alternative should those laws be ruled unconstitutional is extreme – even for her.
In her new memoir, There Goes My Social Life: From Clueless to Conservative (due June 6), the Fox News contributor, 49, slams Caitlyn Jenner for her use of the women’s bathroom.
“It’s tyranny by the minority. Why do I have to suffer because you can’t decide what you wanna be that day?” Dash told Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday.
“It’s your body! So, it’s your decision, right? We all make choices,” she said, suggesting that being transgender is a choice.
“OK, then go in the bushes. I don’t know what to tell you, but I’m not gonna put my child’s life at risk because you want to change a law,” said Dash, who is the mother of 24-year-old son Austin and 13-year-old daughter Lola. “So that you can be comfortable with your beliefs — which means I have to change my beliefs and my rights? No.”
“What we’re doing is we’re chipping away at what it is to be a woman and to be feminine,” she added to ET. “And what it is to be a man and be masculine. We’re chipping away at that. I wish we could go back to ‘Mad Men’ days. I love those days. Men were men. And I love them.”
