Latina GOP Candidate Livestreams Herself Confronting a Transgender 'Woman' In a Denny's Bathroom


A Republican congressional candidate for California’s 44th District filmed herself live from inside a restroom at a Denny’s restaurant and confronting a transgender women (also known as a dude) using the women’s bathroom.

“I’m trying to use the ladies’ room and there is a man here claiming that he is a lady,” Jazmina Saavedra said in the Facebook Live video, standing outside a bathroom stall.

“You’re invading my privacy,” the transgender woman (who, again, is very clearly a dude) responded.

“You’re invading my privacy because I’m a woman and I deserve to use the woman, the ladies’ room,” Saavedra shot back.

Saavedra then waited outside the bathroom for the man to come out, escorted by a manager.

Live footage of the incident was met with a range of responses, from people criticizing Saavedra as a transphobic bigot to others thanking her for standing up for women's privacy rights.

True to form, Saavedra’s Democratic opponent, incumbent Nanette Barragán, condemned the video in a statement.

"I was appalled by the treatment that this woman received for simply trying to use the restroom. Everyone has the right to their own identity, and the right not to be discriminated against for who they are," she told the Daily Beast.

I’d argue that women also have the right to privacy in their own bathroom, but hey. Women’s privacy and safety only seems to matter to liberals when it serves their agenda.
