THIS is why people hate the media. I sat down with Entertainment Tonight to talk about my new book There Goes My Social Life: From Clueless to Conservative which is coming out on June 6th.
The reporter questioned me about the controversy surrounding the bathroom issue, and I expressed my views. If you are a man (or have obtained male parts), you go to the male bathroom. If you are a woman (or have obtained female parts), you go to the female bathroom. This is hardly a controversial statement.
By allowing men into the women’s bathroom, you open up the possibility that NON-transgendered men can saunter into the bathroom and do who-knows-what to women and children.
Think that’s extreme? Well, it’s already happened. In Chicago, a 33 year old man grabbed an 8 year old kid who went into a girl’s bathroom at Jason’s Deli. He “strangled her until she passed out.” The mom heard the ruckus, ran in, and the customers at the deli had to go in and restrain the man until the police showed up. (Read about it here.)
The Entertainment Tonight reporter, however, pushed back. She said, “Well, what if they can’t decide what gender they are that day?”
That’s when I said, “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 so that you can be comfortable with your beliefs — which means I have to change my beliefs and my rights? No.”
Does that sound heartless and mean? It’s not. I have been hit and hurt by men, and I will NOT stand by and let the MINORITY of the people put everyone at risk. I just won’t do it.
I hope that Entertainment Tonight will put out the whole audio of our conversation. Or maybe they’ll pull a Katie Couric, deceptively edit our talk, and I’ll never give them another interview. I know they’ve already leaked a portion of the interview to Us Weekly to make me look bigoted. I’m not. I’m reasonable and I’m sick and tired of all this.
It’s time to say enough is enough.
