Wow, Ted Cruz is really hung up on where people pee.
Ted Cruz’s tour de transphobia, launched last week to capitalize on Donald Trump’s criticism of North Carolina’s anti-transgender law, has embraced a new extreme position. Speaking to reporters this weekend in Indiana, he actually admitted that he doesn’t believe transgender people should be allowed to use any restroom except the ones in the privacy of their own home.
“Every one of us has the right to live our lives as we wish,” he said. “If any one of us wants to dress up as a woman or man and wants to live as woman or man and believes that we might be something other than what we were born, God has made each of us with free will and the ability to choose to do that if man to wants to dress as a woman, and live as a woman, and have a bathroom at home.”
A reporter sought clarification on the remark: “So then they shouldn’t use the bathroom out in public?”
Cruz then confirmed just that. “You don’t have a right to intrude upon the rights of others because whether or not a man believes he’s a woman, there are a lot of women who would like to be able to use a public restroom in peace without having a man there — and when there are children involved, you don’t have a right to impose your lifestyle on others.”
So if you are transgender — which is your business and your business only — then according to the presumptive Hall Monitor in Chief, you should hold it until you get home. So if you’re at work or out shopping or traveling across country, stock up on Depends because this pervy busybody doesn’t want you to go because y’know, you might…
Donald Trump is a racist sociopath with fascist tendencies, but Ted Cruz is a full-on no-holds-barred creep, and the sooner he is removed from the public sphere, the better off we will all be.
