Stacey Dash Infuriates LGBT Lobby In Book Interview, Insisting on Her Restroom Rights

June 4th, 2016 8:20 PM

Actress and Fox News contributor Stacey Dash was trashed by the Left again for suggesting transgender activists should “go to the bushes” at bathroom time if they can’t decide which gender they are. In an interview on Thursday with Entertainment Tonight to promote her new book There Goes My Social Life, Dash insisted “Hollywood pushes a liberal agenda to the rest of the country. Whether we like it or not, Hollywood dictates the culture of the country.”

When ET’s Nischelle Turner asked about “Caitlyn Jenner,” Dash implied that gender was a “choice,” which violates the code of LGBT political correctness.

Dash argued "It's tyranny by the minority. Why do I have to suffer because you can't decide what you wanna be that day?"Turner asked, oddly: “But is it a decision?” Dash shot back “"I would think so. It's your body! So, it's your decision, right? We all make choices."

When Turner tried to play devil’s advocate with the transgender-activist line – something they don’t do to the Left – that “It is who I am, and I don’t choose to be one way or another,” Dash replied, “OK, then go to 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," Dash replied. "So that you can be comfortable with your beliefs -- which means I have to change my beliefs and my rights? No."

Over at a blog for the Comcast-owned Oxygen channel, Sharon Lynn Pruitt told Dash to shut  up:

Wow. I'm willing to bet there have been literally zero cases of children being assaulted by transgender individuals while using the bathroom; meanwhile, the amount of violence perpetrated against trans individuals - especially transgender women of color - continues to rise. Basically: put a sock in it, Stacey.

Stacey Dash is also the subject of a fairly sympathetic People magazine profile this week where she talks about some of her struggles in her personal life and how they made her what she is today. Still, the liberal magazine had to put some negative spin on it. The subhead was “Her conservative politics have made her a Hollywood lightning rod. Now the Clueless star opens up about surviving addiction and abuse.”

Writer Aili Nahas reported “she seems to delight in controversy, voicing right-wing views on everything from Black History Month to ending welfare. None of it has been good for her acting career.”

She added “Critics say Dash is a reactionary who has stereotyped people of color and the poor, who she has said forgo work in exchange for ‘free stuff.’ But the native New Yorker says being an African-American female conservative gives her a unique insight into the struggle for racial equality.”

Nahas also put a Hi-Liter on her failed relationships: “After eight engagements and three divorces, Dash say she finds the most joy in being a mother to Austin, now 25,and Lola, 11 (with her second husband Brian Lovell)."

You only have to turn a couple of pages to see who gets zero criticism or harsh judgment, and no "critics say she's a jerk" sentences. People honored lesbian comedian Tig Notaro, married to a woman who used to be straight. Notaro's apparently "legendary" comedy act performed topless after her mastectomy never came up.
