A Republican candidate for Congress in California filmed herself confronting a transgender woman using the women’s bathroom at a Denny’s in Los Angeles.

Jazmina Saavedra, who is campaigning for a seat in California’s 44th District, streamed the incident on Facebook Live on Tuesday.

“I’m trying to use the ladies’ room and there is a man here claiming that he is a lady,” Saavedra said, entering the bathroom and filming outside the stall.

“You’re invading my privacy,” the transgender woman inside the stall said.


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

She then left the restroom and waited outside for the individual to exit. . . .

I saw that.. talk about actively trying to destroy another person.  Evil evil evil.  Just to make a political point you try to shame, embarrass, and out this girl?  I hope to hell it really does go viral and she gets sued for defamation, libel, slander.

You know. I acknowledge that people have the right to their opinions about us. I may not like those opinions, but at the same time... So be it, not everyone is going to approve of everyone else no matter who they are, and I accept that.

But this... this insanity is wrong, and goes far past any private opinion. Above all else is the idea that she was in danger, that she repeats several time. Where does this idea even come from?! What danger? Did she really think that the trans woman in the bathroom would suddenly burst out and attack her? If she said it made her feel uncomfortable... so be that as well. But this whole unfounded idea of violence which is entirely counter indicated by all scientific evidence...  and then the harassment! I hope the trans woman sues the hell out of Denny's for escorting her out like that.

On top of that, she was the one with the pepper spray and stun gun.  I wouldn't feel safe around her.

It is disgusting. I decided to report this video as harassment. California is pretty good in Transgender protection, so I hope the ACLU or another organization does something here.
