Stacey Dash Tells Transgenders To Go Pee ‘In The Bushes,’ Actress Blasts Newly Proposed Bathroom Law
Stacey Dash, who’s best known for the 1995 film Clueless, has slammed the proposed laws that would allow transgender people to use the bathroom of their choice in public schools.
Barack Obama was sued by 11 states that claimed that the President had overstepped his bounds when he gave transgender individuals the leeway to make their choice. On May 13, public schools across the nation were directed to implement the guideline at the risk of budget cuts.
He said that the bullying and the isolation of the transgender people in schools should stop.
“My best interpretation of what our laws and our obligations are is that we should try to accommodate these kids so that they are not in a vulnerable situation,” Obama said.

That didn’t sit well with Stacey Dash, however, as she said that Barack Obama is ramming his beliefs down everybody’s throats with regard to the transgender bathroom laws.
“It’s tyranny by the minority. Why do I have to suffer because you can’t decide what you wanna be that day?” she said.
She holds the old notion that homosexuality or being transgender is a choice one makes.
But Stacey Dash has an answer.
“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.”

Stacey Dash is not the first celebrity to speak out against transgender and LGBT members.
When Bruce Jenner came out in a Vanity Fair story, where she also revealed her new name as Caitlyn, a few celebrities took flak for speaking out against the former Olympian’s decision.
For instance, former Nickelodeon actor Drake Bell tweeted, “Sorry…still calling you Bruce.” He later took down the post after getting a lot of negative reaction. He also tweeted an explanation, “I’m not dissing him! I just don’t want to forget his legacy! He is the greatest athlete of all time! Chill out!”
Then there was presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, who made a cringe-worthy joke about wanting to confess as a transgender when he was younger so that would give him the opportunity to “shower with the girls.”
Stacey Dash lashing out against bathroom laws is not an isolated opinion, with 11 states filing a lawsuit against the Obama administration over the new directive. In fact, the debate could even reach the Supreme Court.

Last month, the federal appellate court ruled as discriminatory the policy by Gloucester County School Board, which prohibits transgender people from using the boys’ restroom.
Gavin Grimm, who was the subject of the case, said in a statement, “I feel so relieved and vindicated by the court’s ruling. Today’s decision gives me hope that my fight will help other kids avoid discriminatory treatment at school.”
The fight is not over for Grimm or the other transgender people in schools, particularly with Judge Paul V. Niemeyer refusing the petition by Gloucester County School to review the ruling. He said the landmark case needed “an open road to the Supreme Court.”

“Bodily privacy is historically one of the most basic elements of human dignity and individual freedom,” he wrote. “And forcing a person of one biological sex to be exposed to persons of the opposite biological sex profoundly offends this dignity and freedom.”
Some parents share the view by Stacey Dash over the bathroom laws involving transgender rights, which forced the school to make a ruling based on biology. The public schools of Gloucester County, according to the board’s ruling, should limit the restrooms to the “biological genders.”
