Yesterday Ben Carson told reporter Jorge Ramos that trans people “make everybody uncomfortable” so they should be forced to use trans-only bathrooms. Via Fusion:
Questioned about Houston voters’ rejection of a law banning LGBT discrimination this week, Carson said: “How about we have a transgender bathroom?” “It is not fair for them to make everybody else uncomfortable,” Carson said of transgender people. “It’s one of the things that I don’t particularly like about the [LGBT] movement. I think everybody has equal rights, but I’m not sure that anybody should have extra rights—extra rights when it comes to redefining everything for everybody else and imposing your view on everybody else.” “The way this country was designed was live and let live,” Carson said, as he sipped a tall glass of orange juice in Miami’s Moonlite Diner. “I feel, gay people, they can do anything they want.” “But you’re against gay marriage,” Ramos pointed out.
