Caitlyn Jenner Speaks Out Against Anti-LGBT Restroom Laws

Caitlyn Jenner Speaks Out Against Anti-LGBT Restroom Laws

Caitlyn Jenner goes for a coffee run at Trancas Country Market on Saturday (April 23) in Malibu, Calif.

The I Am Cait star took to her website the day before to speak out against recently passed laws that ban transgender people from using public restrooms that don’t match the sex assigned to them at birth.

“We all want safety and privacy in public bathrooms. But these anti-LGBT bills, like the ones in North Carolina and Mississippi, actually make us less safe, not more safe,” Caitlyn wrote.

Caitlyn continued, “They open the door to abuse, aggressive and confrontational behavior in bathrooms, and encourage strangers to demand that women and girls prove that they are actually female in order to use the restroom. No one wants that.”

    Jibberish. Right-minded parents don’t want the opposite sex to have access to their children in bathrooms, law or no law. It opens the door to predators in drag to prey on children and women.

  • Dee

    I dont understand, people who do criminal acts already dont obey the law, why do you think this will make it worse? this law came out of no where; there were no issues pertaining to bathrooms, this is just a grab because the right lost the marriage debate.

  • Roscoe

    Your rationale is to enact law that allows predators opportunity because they will do it anyway. It is akin to allowing customers behind the counter at a jewelry store.

    What’s worse about it is that a biological male that looks like a male can stroll right into a public bathroom behind a woman or girl without any legal repercussions.

    You must have not paid attention to the news. There have been countless stories about schools and businesses bending over backwards and/or getting sued for not allowing people their choice of bathroom. There also have been court rulings in favor of gender identiy. States enacting anti bathroom/changing room choice laws, I believe, come from, aside from safety and decency considerations, the desire to head off lawsuits and dubious rulings by judges.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I agree. Why not make businesses put in unisex bathrooms, that’s a fair solution. What about special needs kids and adults? I speak firsthand, I can imagine how difficult this will make it for parents sending their kids to a public bathroom. He’s speaking from his position, but safety is an issue. Just like there’s a problem with men putting cameras in women’s dressing rooms or bathroom, locker rooms.

    All the predators that stalk parents, waiting for an opportunity to snatch kids away, caught on cameras with many fatalities, but, people are being unreasonable, Caitlyn/Bruce (with all of her male parts)? It’s already dangerous enough for women and children, now any man who wakes up and decides he wants to IDENTIFY as a female is free to go into the most vulnerable place for women and girls. Sometimes you’re the only one in there. Well, many businesses will lose money because moms are going to boycott businesses! Why take away the rights of others to give rights to people when there’s no way of telling if someone is a predator or not!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Crimes will happen no matter what, but why sacrifice innocent people, when a unisex bathroom will do, just like many business have handicap bathrooms, exits, entrances, parking, special electronic doors, the same can be done for trans! Let’s do unisex or individual bathrooms for everyone (let’s see businesses foot this bill) until we find a better way for everyone’s safety!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Yes, people are going to sue, I mean look at the stats for violence against women and children! Safety concerns aren’t a stretch, it’s the world we live in!

  • Dee

    I don’t understand…. you think people wake up and decide they want to be the opposite sex? also, unisex bathrooms would be fine… if they din’t also make laws against them. thats further proof that its just the right trying to take an inch after they lost the marriage debate mile….

  • Dee

    uh no. My rationale is to keep things how they are, because of the made up scenario of mass pedophiles just waking up one morning and deciding to act as “women” to get into the bathrooms. they are saying thats whats happening now, so they want to make laws to stop that, which is not happening. yes pedo’s exist, but no law is going to stop a criminal from committing a crime. and pedo’s are not dressing up and getting into womens restrooms in droves any more then they are kidnapping kids from their walk home from school…but I haven’t seen them outlawing waking home without an adult.

  • jane

    someone at my job just came out as transgender and they told he/she it could use the restroom it felt most comfortable in. and, of course, no regard for the comfort of the other 300+ people it works with. we have to respect them and their rights, but ours don’t matter as much. bunch of crazies.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    No, I’m very familiar with trans individuals, and grew-up around gay men, have heard endless coming of age stories that will bring you to tears, had a friend who makes gowns and costumes for drag queens, show girls and competitions. When I see today’s makeup trends with all of the contouring, and Kim Kardashian is credited with popularizing, I know it was trans women who did it first! I know it’s not easy leading a gay lifestyle or going trans, but I also know safety comes first, and most predators against women and children are men, and you can’t tell me there won’t be incidents with non-trans men gaining access to the women’s bathroom!

    Civil Rights don’t happen overnight, social equality has always been a process, it was only in 1965 (slavery ended in 1865) did this country sign the voting rights act for black people, women were horrifically harassed in the workplace until the 1980′s, domestic violence is still a problem. It took decades for us to have smoke-free zones and businesses to diminish second-hand smoke exposure. Gay marriage was a huge victory (a right people should have), but the whole bathroom thing affects me on a very personal level, where gay marriage doesn’t!

    We can’t make this world gender-less, we have to find a way to co-exist, and allow gender identity to exist as we know it, and include variations (trans), but to erase one for the other is just wrong! I hope trans activists take on individual unisex bathrooms for everyone, problem solved, and I hope they help fund it too! Most States are cash-strapped, and businesses need your increase in traffic and profits to absorb costs to make it happen, JS! Target’s plan will alienate some customers and win others. I would just go to another big-box retailer or order online (where I typically spend less). Bathrooms and indoor parking lots are two of the most vulnerable places for women!.

  • Roscoe

    Do you want grown men to have access to your daughters in restrooms, showers, and changing rooms?

  • Kaitlyn

    Well they do wake up with a specific gender that determines how and where they will urinate. So why should we (and especially our children) be forced to change our needs in order to cater to their desires.

  • Gina

    You’re disgusting. That person is a human being, not an “it.” You on the other hand are a monster.

  • Dee

    wtf are you taking about, the law would change things.

  • Dee

    um, is that happening now? this is a “preemptive” law, as in “this might happen one day, so lets stop it before it happens…” you are acting as if people are dressing up and getting into other bathrooms to rape little girls right now. i’m sure criminals are still being criminals, but they are using fear tactics to take an inch from the LGBTS again. AND TO PROVE IT, NC HAS ANTI UNISEX BATHROOM LAWS. did you know that? they are trying to make going to the bathroom more dangerous for LGBTS, imagine a trans woman having to used a male bathroom…THATS DANGEROUS. understand that a trans woman is murdered every 29 hours.

    also, you are not the only one to grow up around LGBTs. Im from miami, trust me when I say I understand.

  • Dee

    is that happening now?

  • Roscoe

    My question first and google is always your friend :)

  • Roscoe

    Rapists, molesters, peeping toms, and flashers are the monsters. Who can help being confused by one’s gender delusions?

  • Gina

    Being confused is one thing, being malicious and close-mined is quite another. The only one delusional is you & those like you. Just because someone is transgender doesn’t mean they are automatically a rapist, a molester, a peeping tom, a flasher etc. Gimme a damn break & stop being so full of hate (and sh*t).

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Why should we have to wait for any or one little girl or woman to be assaulted? Activists should protect NC anti unisex bathroom laws. And, the federal government should intervene like they did with Ferguson. But, I believe unisex bathrooms is the right direction. I’m not surprised about NC, not in the least bit!

  • Roscoe

    Who’s being close minded now? You are familiar with the term Trojan horse, no? I was comparing those who think of a trans person as an “it” with the true monsters, those who will falsely identify themselves as trans and use relaxed laws to prey on women and girls. Your apology is in order, but I won’t hold my breath.

  • Legendary Trolly

    Why df would you want a grown man using the restroom with a little girl? I didnt say Trannies were pedos, or that I hated Trannies! Its just inappropriate!

  • Dee

    I dont want my daughters/sons in anyplace with CRIMINALS, but I wont clump criminals in the same group with who I may feel are degenerates do to religion or w/e reasoning you may use as I feel you may be doing.

  • Dee

    These laws are only meant to put trans people in harms way and to degrade them. if they go into effect, you will have beareded women in the womens restrooms and mean in dresses in the mens restrooms. you want to have to explain that to you kids, when they go to the bathroom your daughter walks by someone who looks like a man? that would be the result.

  • Gina

    Ahh yes, clutch those pearls. Your hate speech in using the term tranny is inappropriate.

  • Gina

    Ahh yes, clutch those pearls. Your hate speech in using the term tranny is inappropriate.

  • Gina

    There are other alternatives; unisex washrooms for instance. So yes, you are still close-minded, and still not someone I need to be taking notes from. And calling the transgender community delusional is in fact name-calling. Goodbye.

  • Legendary Trolly

    Its not hate speech dude. Trannie is a slang term for ts, and I dont feel like spelling out the entire word! Now answer my question, why would you want a grown man using the restroom with your daughter?

  • Gina

    Trannie is a derogatory term and your hateful ass knows it. I have yet to hear of a case where a person who is transgender molested a child in a public restroom.

  • Dee

    will these laws stop criminals for committing crimes? no, they are just to put trans people in harms way. you are a jackass, you know that? are people falsely identifying themselves as trans to commit crimes now? NO, not anymore then they were 100 years ago….to be honest, I never new that there were bathrooms laws before this. I’ve used the mens restroom a ton of times either because the womens was closed or full…..shit, could I have been arrested? and yes, when men were at the urinal…they are the ones that get freaked out when a women walks in there, so if bio men/trans women are forced to use male restrooms, more then likely the men would act out against them. I mean, as a kid my dad would make me use the mens bathroom anyway cus I was too small to use the womens one alone… people are making up fake scenarios to degrade a population, and it needs to stop.

  • Roscoe

    If gender choice laws pass in place of restrictive laws, the deterrent of being caught entering or occupying an incompatible area would be eliminated. Now, you could call the police if you saw a man or men following a woman or girl into the bathroom in most locales. After the law, all you can do is hope that the potential victim is ok. The only ways you would know that she is being attacked is if you hear outside or enter the area. If a disturbance outside is heard and you call the police, the attack is underway and may well be finished by the time they arrive. If you suspect someone is in danger of attack and enter, you face the prospect of being attacked and/or killed yourself. The previous deterrent factor would have prevented all of this in most cases.

    You can be arrested now depending on the law governing the location of the bathroom. I would have no problem if the law is enforced, but it is at the discretion of management or the public, if noticed, that the police are called.

    Businesses and government locations have the option to install unisex or trans-friendly bathrooms alongside male and female ones. Trans people have the option to choose to not frequent businesses that don’t accommodate them.

    I think you missed the recent story of a man who insisted on proceeding to undress in the presence of girls in a female changing room asserting his “right”. I’m sure you can find other examples, but I believe sex crimes most occur where there is opportunity. This is supported by online articles about studies which found that predators most often choose professions that allow them access and opportunity with children (i.e. teachers, clergy, CPS, etc.).

    If it is legal for boys and men to enter female areas, it will be only a matter of time before instances of sex crimes become prevalent there. I’m willing to debate further, but I’m talking about human nature supported by a history of behavior and time will be the decider.

    You moron, Im not hateful to anyone, and it is NOT a derogatory term in MY opinion! You politically correct goofballs are so weak! You want to be able to say “Oh you HATE Ts”

    But you cant, because I disarmed you from that silly trash when I told you I dont have a thing against ANYONE living their own lives! And since you cant call me hateful against them, you have nothing else to say?

    I NEVER said that trannnies are molesting kids! I said is it appropriate for a grown man to be in the restroom with your daughter?

    Oh, the ignorance! First of all, I’ve seen interviews where people in the transgender community say that ‘tranny’ is a derogatory term. So I’ll take their word over yours any day of the week. Second, transgender women do not consider themselves men. So ignoring that, and still calling them men is hateful. Prefacing your hate speech with crap like “I don’t have a thing against anyone” doesn’t make it true, it’s just a justification to continue on with your hate speech. So no, you didn’t disarm me honey, because I come locked and loaded to call you out on your bullsh*t.

  • Legendary Trolly

    IDGAF about what “the transgender community says” Im not an expert on them, or what they like, dislike, etc!

    I said TO ME, Trannie is NOT a derogatory term, and it is easier than spelling the whole word everytime!

    Second of all IDGAF if they consider themselves women or men. They ARENT women! I have no problem referring to them as women, but as far as TREATING them like real women, when they could beat me up, and over power me, is not right! Things women go through, trannies will never experience! That is something MAJOR that you are smart enough to know, yet YOU are ignoring THAT!

    I dont play the politically correct crap. Im not disrespecting a trannie to their face, in this moment! I have no problem compromising my language to refrain from offending them! But they arent here right now, Im just going to speak this REAL shiet! How about that?

    “Prefacing your hate-speech” Go away with the politically correct trash! Their is no hate! I made that clear, and you understood that! But as I said prior you desperately want to accuse me of being against trannies, and since Im not, you dont have anything else to say! “I know, and all I can do is pretend that you hate them..even though you genuinely seem like you dont…I just need a way to respond to your point, which is something I simply CANT respond to” Lol

    Now as far as what you ignored, why would you want grown men in the bathroom with your daughter?

    I remember the last time I asked, you took what I said and tried to flip it around “Since when are Trannies, molesting children”?

    Guess what? I never said they were! So I disarmed you of that as well.

    All I asked is, why do you think its appropriate to have grown men in the bathroom with your daughter?

  • Gina

    “Me, me me” that’s all I’m hearing from your self-centered rants. You’re basically saying that you don’t care if you offend someone just as long as the words don’t sound offensive to you. How are you gonna speak on a community that you don’t know about or give a damn about? If a man is gonna molest a child he’s gonna find a way to do it no matter what. You make it sound like all men are barbarians predisposed to rape. But what your dumb ass fails to comprehend is that I don’t consider transgender women to be men. They mentally feel like women, and based on your logic, since women are less likely to molest children, then I’m not worried. You will NEVER disarm me, because your ammo is weak and always will be. How’s that for your answer?

  • Legendary Trolly

    Actually I DO care, but as I stated prior, Im not talking to a trannie right now, Im just speaking freely on the internet dude Lol If trannies felt it was offensive, then I wouldnt talk like this to their faces! Its like your trying to distract me with your politically correct trash!

    And you said this “If a man is gonna molest a child he’s gonna find a way to do it no matter what. You make it sound like all men are barbarians predisposed to rape”

    I never said any of that trash, and made it clear in EVERY one of my comments! I simply asked, was it appropriate for a grown man to be in the restroom with your daughter?

    It doesnt matter if they “mentally feel” like men or women, we are talking facts! They are grown men! I never said anything about “Women are most likely to molest kids, or men or less likely….”

    I never said any of that trash! And I notice that you STILL cant answer!

    Is it or is it not appropriate for grown men to be in the restroom with your daughter or not? You keep baiting me into politically correct debates, that I dont care about! This was always simple dude!

    All you had to say was “Yes I think its appropriate for grown men to be in the bathroom with my daughter” And this convo would’ve been over! Keep the politically correct evil away from me! Because I love all people, and have nothing against anyone’s lifestyle, but me PERSONALLY I would hate for grown men to be in the bathroom with my daughter! These celebs boycotting look retarded af Lol

  • Gina

    I already answered your damn question, if you are too much of a simpleton to register what I said then that’s your problem not, mine. It’s not about being “politically correct” it’s about not being an ignorant as*hole. Of course I have a problem with men being in the women’s bathroom, but transgender women are NOT men IMO. How many times do I have to say it? Get it through your thick head and have several seats.

  • Legendary Trolly

    No its 100% about being politically correct! The only reason people take these silly “stands” is to avoid offending people! But if you know how to articulate your ideas, you can keep it real, and break down how you feel without worrying about that! No transgender should be offended by my logic!

    And transgenders ARE men! I can say that I identify with being an ICE box, but Im still not an Ice Box! Im an actual person! Or I can say that I identify, with being a 13yr old boy, so that means its okay for me to be dating 13yr old girls?

    Trannies identify with being the opposite gender, and I have no problem referring to them as men, women, or whatever it is that they identify with! But the fact of the matter is, they arent real women! Its okay to call them women and treat them like women, but as far as acting like they are actual women, is wrong! Women will go through things that trannies will never go through! A trannie can beat me up and take my daughter out of my hand! A woman, cannot! Your ideas almost insult women! Their should be THREE seperate groups! Men, Women, and Ts men, and Ts women! In this case, you would need to add 2 more stalls! But is their enough ts’ in the world, to go and remodle every single building? Im not sure!

    But its the only solution, because its simply wrong for them to be in the bathroom with my daughter!

  • Gina

    Lol “No transgender should be offended by my logic” What logic???HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! You poor, lost soul. I’ll pray for you.

  • Legendary Trolly

    Be serious dude! What transgender is going to sit and try to make a case, where they feel they should be in the bathroom with some little girl? That would make them look wierd!

    If anything, they would say “I want transgenders to be treated fairly and treated right, but obviously its silly to say we should be in the bathroom with the opposite gender!”

    And Your little short response! You couldnt respond to anything I said! Your weak. You can type as many “Lol’s” and “HAHAHAHAHA’s” as you want!

  • Legendary Trolly

  • Gina

    The point isn’t about being in the bathroom with a little girl, it’s about taking a damn piss!! Plain and simple. A transgender woman would get physically attacked if she went into the men’s washroom. So yeah, I will LOL at your ass until the cows come home.

  • Legendary Trolly

    No that is the point! They dont belong in the same place at the same time! I asked you this, and you keep ignoring it; If I say I identify with a 13yr old boy, does that mean I should be going on dates with 13yr old girls?

    I respect the fact that ts, identify with being the opposite gender, and I have no problem referring to them as women! Now as far as treating them like actual women, and actually sleeping with them?

    Am I going to go and sleep with a ts? Well Hell DF No, I wont! But I will with an actual female! And a ts female, is not an actual female, its a grown man! And has no place in the restroom with the opposite gender! Whats wrong with getting ts their own restroom?

    Thats far more logical than actually letting them go in the restroom with my daughter! I would be angry and extremely violent if one was in the restroom with my daughter!

    The same way I would be if I slept with someone who claimed to be a woman, and wasnt actually a woman! We both know who is right in this situation!

  • Gina

    You’re lost, delusional and sad. I’ve answered your question many, many times. It’s not my fault that you are too pig-headed to accept it. And stop trivializing transgender issues by comparing it to an adult feeling like a 13 year old. Not the same thing. Don’t play dumb with me.

  • Legendary Trolly

    Its the EXACT same thing! People said it with Rachel Dolezal remember? They joked that she was “transracial”

    You didnt answer everything! I asked you this; Do you expect me to sleep with a transgender “woman” the way I would a regular woman? Of course you dont! I have no problem referring to them as women, but the fact of the matter is, they arent real women! So we can treat them like women to a certain degree, but lines obviously must be drawn! No normal transgender would even disagree! They’d look crazy going along with your pc trash!

  • Gina

    You’ve asked me a bunch of dumb ass questions, some of which I thought were rhetorical. Either way, you’re boring me now.

  • Legendary Trolly

    Another comment in which you ignored what Im saying! Its not like you can tell me Im wrong! But now Im boring you?

    We could’ve been ended this; Do you expect me to sleep with a transgender the way I would a regular woman? Since you said they were the same thing?

    And I also asked what was wrong with them getting their own bathroom.. I guess if my correct, logic is hard to deal with, it means its dumb? Lol

  • Gina

    So you’re curious about sleeping with a transgender, huh? Interesting how you brought that up out of nowhere. It was completely unrelated to the topic at hand. Very interesting…
