The idea that this is about safety and security, it’s kind of like when somebody says that they ate all the ice cream in order to make room in the freezer. I mean it’s just obvious that that’s not the real reason. This is about discrimination, particularly against transgender people.

It’s a quick interview, and by the time I start getting warmed up, it’s over. But you can watch the full segment here.
