“It’s tyranny by the minority. Why do I have to suffer because you can’t decide what you wanna be that day?”

Stacey Dash, Fox News contributor and Clueless star (in more ways than one), speaking with Entertainment Tonight. Dash ranted about Caityln Jenner and other trans women, saying they should stay out of women’s restrooms.

Dash called being transgender a choice, saying, “It’s your body! So, it’s your decision, right? We all make choices.”

“A lot of people in the transgender community would then say, ‘It is who I am,'” ET host Nischelle Turner responded.

“OK, then go to the bushes,” Dash said. “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.”

Dash was appearing on ET to promote her new memoir, There Goes My Social Life: From Clueless to Conservative. We’re pretty sure she’s both.
