Stacey Dash Believes Trans People Need To ‘Pee In A Bush’ Rather Than Bathroom
Stacey Dash doubled down on her conservative bonafides by saying she believes trans people shouldn’t have to worry about which bathroom they’re supposed to use because they should use the bushes. Stacey Dash appeared on Entertainment Tonight to promote her new book, but the interview took a turn when the former Clueless actress decided to talk about what she thinks is ruining America. While Dash thinks feminism, in general, is ruining the country, but she believes trans people to uses the bathroom tied to the sex they identify as “tyranny by the minority.”
As the Advocate points out, Dash added the following.
“Why do I have to suffer because you can’t decide what you wanna be that day?”
Dash also said she supports a number of different moves that some Republican legislatures have made to make it that much harder for transpeople. In particular, she is very supportive of measures like House Bill 2 in North Carolina, which has come under quite a bit of fire from most of the rest of the United States.

House Bill 2 would force trans people to use public bathrooms that don’t correspond to the sex they identify with. Instead, the only public bathrooms they could use would be the ones that correspond to the sex they were born as. Dash believes going the other way, as President Obama has done with an executive order, infringes on her own rights just a little too much. When asked what she thought people like Caitlyn Jenner should do in the face of these new laws, Dash said she believes they should “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,” Dash, who is a mother of two, said when the ET host appeared to be a bit shocked at her rather ho-hum attitude. “So that you can be comfortable with your beliefs — which means I have to change my beliefs and my rights? No.” Dash has these problems with transphobia despite the fact there hasn’t been a report of any attacks since more than 200 different localities have allowed trans people to use the bathroom for the sex they identify as.
To further throw shade on Dash’s claims, there has also not been a single case of a man or woman specifically dressing up as the other sex to get into a bathroom. This is despite the fact that Stacey Dash is parroting fears that have been said over and over again while these laws were being passed. Dash doesn’t just believe that transgender people are a threat to her children, the actress and Fox News personality added she believes the movement is undermining the masculinity of the country.

“What we’re doing is we’re chipping away at what it is to be a woman and to be feminine,” Dash said. “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.” This is hardly the only issue Stacey has recently spoken out about. The actress has also talked quite a bit about gun control. CNN reports she talked in her new book that she avoided getting raped because she was able to pull a gun on the attacker. Because she was able to carry the gun, she claims she appreciates her second amendment rights more than most. One thing Stacey Dash doesn’t respect is the rights of trans people who wish to do what everyone else in the country can do when it comes to the bathroom.
