Comedian Wanda Sykes has blasted transgender bathroom laws that ban biological men from women’s restrooms, saying such laws are “stupid and hateful.”
In an interview with Variety, Wanda Sykes explained why she addresses the transgender bathroom debate in her new Netflix stand-up special I’m an Entertainer.
“I’m not trans, but they have my support, 100 percent,” Sykes said.
“I wanted to find something where I can shine some light on what they’re going through, to show how just stupid and hateful really it is. I was in a woman’s bathroom one time, and I was like, ‘Who would want to come in here anyway? It was like, I kind of want to go check out the men’s room. Sometimes, it’s even cleaner.’”
She added: “And that’s how that whole bit started. I’ve always just been grossed out by bathrooms.”
