When you’re so famous for being a conservative stick in the mud that Chris Rock uses you as the butt of a joke about #OscarsSoWhite in his internationally televised monologue, you don’t need help digging a deeper hole.
But Stacey Dash is apparently the Energizer bunny of offensive comments, and in her latest rant, the Fox News contributor told Entertainment Tonight Lady Gaga is a hypocrite and that her fellow conservative, Caitlyn Jenner, and transgender women in general, should stay out of women’s bathrooms.
“It’s tyranny by the minority. Why do I have to suffer because you can’t decide what you wanna be that day?” said Dash to ET‘s Nischelle Turner.
And she didn’t stop there, claiming that being trans was a choice. “It’s your body! So, it’s your decision, right? We all make choices.”
Turner, to her credit, explained to the Clueless star (that’s not just the name of the movie she starred in, apparently) that transgender people did not choose to be trans, but were born that way. “A lot of people in the transgender community would then say, ‘It is who I am,'” she told Dash. Her response: the trans rights movement is beginning to “infringe” upon her rights.
“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. So that you can be comfortable with your beliefs — which means I have to change my beliefs and my rights? No.”
Her exclusive interview with ET highlighted the celebrities she attacks in her new memoir, There Goes My Social Life: From Clueless to Conservative. Lady Gaga, for instance, is in her view a “hypocrite” because the singer’s anti-bullying campaign, the Born This Way Foundation, is nothing but a ruse to promote her “liberal agenda.”
“It’s true. It is. And that’s what Hollywood does,” she told Turner. “Hollywood pushes a liberal agenda to the rest of the country. And, whether we like it or not, Hollywood dictates the culture of the country.”
And she saved her most biting comments for feminists, who she said have emasculated men.
