Caitlyn Jenner spoke at the GOP Convention in Cleveland on Wednesday, and she was highly critical of her own party's platform on transgender rights. Jenner is a lifelong Republican and public figure in the transgender community, and she praised Democrats' policies towards transgender rights and bathroom policies while hoping that Republicans would one day follow suit:
I have to admit, I’ve been very disappointed over the last five to 10 years, but I won't give up hope on it. I think the Republican Party needs to understand, they need to know people who are trans.
The best part was when she reminded everyone that Republicans have been caught in plenty of bathroom sex scandals. Former Idaho Sen. Larry Craig, former Mississippi Rep. Jon Hinson, and former Florida state Rep. Bob Allen were all arrested for "lewd behavior" in men's restrooms. So Jenner offered up a different solution:
Maybe what we should do is ban Republican representatives at a state level from being in the men's room.
No Republican Congressmen have been busted for lewd behavior in the the bathrooms at Quicken Loans Arena, but there are still a few more days left in the convention.
