Stacey Dash is living up to her claim to fame: Clueless.
Dash, who once inspired an actual article titled “Why Is Stacey Dash So Damn Stupid: An Investigation,” has spoken out about the controversy surrounding transgender bathroom policies. In brief, there’s a debate about whether transgender people should be allowed to use the bathroom of the gender they identify with or the gender they were assigned at birth, but as Dash would have it, they should use neither at all.
“Why do I have to suffer because you can’t decide what you wanna be that day?” the Fox News correspondent said of transgender people to Entertainment Tonight yesterday. She added that the trans rights movement has started to “infringe upon [her] rights too much.”
“OK, then go in the bushes. … I’m not gonna put my child’s life at risk because you want to change a law,” Dash said. “So that you can be comfortable with your beliefs—which means I have to change my beliefs and my rights? No.”
As if that wasn’t enough, Dash went on to blame feminists for emasculating men. “Stop trying to be men,” Dash said. “Let’s be women. And let’s let men be men. Let’s empower them to be men, because I feel like they’re falling away.” Where men are “falling away” to has yet to be discovered.
Dash’s tragic ET interview was ultimately in promotion of her new memoir, There Goes My Social Life: From Clueless to Conservative. In it, Dash reportedly criticizes Caitlyn Jenner for using the women’s bathroom and goes in on Lady Gaga, saying Gaga is using her Born This Way Foundation to promote a “liberal agenda.” Guess we’ll have to read the book to fully grasp either of these concepts.
Dash also told ET that she’s starting her own “brand.” It’s called Dash America and aims to “change the way we see 21st century feminists.” If Dash America sounds like somewhere you’d like to be, you should check out Dash’s memoir when it comes out on Monday, June 6.
