Mat Staver appeared on Crosstalk yesterday with Vic Eliason to discuss the firing of a Macy’s employee who refused to follow company policy on transgender customers. Staver’s Liberty Counsel is now representing the employee, who would not let a transgender woman use a woman’s fitting room, and he has launched a campaign to pressure Macy’s to alter store policy by adding “a third dressing room for transgender individuals.” During the interview, Eliason asked Staver what would happen “if I envision myself as being a kangaroo” or “a monkey or a walrus,” and Staver claimed that rights for transgender people would mean that adults can identify themselves as children and therefore “go and use the little kiddies restroom.”
Staver: This was a man, everyone recognized it’s a man, going into the women’s restroom. Now whether that person has good or ill intentions towards women, no one knows, but the fact of the matter is when you defy common sense and when it says ‘women’s fitting room’ and you allow people other than women in that fitting room, you’re just asking for trouble. This is just an absurd policy, this is the so-called LGBT sexual anarchist agenda gone awry, I mean this is the absurdity to which this agenda goes when you ultimately follow it to its logical conclusion.
Eliason: If I envision myself as being a kangaroo, I mean let’s go outside of the gender of humanity, somebody might think I’m a monkey or a walrus, you’d say ‘Vic if you said that they would send you to the nut house, they would send you to the insane asylum.’
Staver: Well what happens if someone says, ‘I’m an adult but I identify myself as a child, I can go and use the little kiddies restroom,’ or silly things like that. But that’s where it goes to.
