Dr. Ben Carson does not believe it would be “fair” for biological men to invade the privacy of women by using their restrooms.
The neurosurgeon told journalist Jorge Ramos that he opposes redefining marriage, as well as including “gender identity” in civil rights ordinances.
When asked about whether transgender men should be allowed to use the women’s restroom, Carson replied, “How about we have a transgender bathroom?”
“It is not fair for them to make everybody else uncomfortable,” he said.
Ordinances like the one voters repealed in Houston on Tuesday would not only allow males to use women’s restroom facilities but also locker rooms and showers. In California, an agreement brokered by the Obama administration allows a biological girl who says she is transgender to use male bathrooms and locker rooms, and spend the night in a teenage boys’ hotel room during overnight field trips.
