Desperate conservatives embrace ridiculous anti-transgender video

I told myself I wouldn't post on this, but it has to be seen to be believed.

This guy on youtube, who is supposed to be popular but I've never heard of him, named Joey Salads created a video experiment which he claims demonstrates that transgender women using the ladies restroom is not a good idea because women are uncomfortable around them.

From what I understand, some conservatives are giving him many props for the above video. When I look at it, I have to ask why.

I don't think it's real. I apologize to those whom this may offend but it has to been seen. It's the most ridiculous video I have seen in a long time (even more than the suburban white mother putting out an anti-transgender rap video) and most of all, it emphasizes the ignorance and fear people have about the transgender community.

There are not enough words in the dictionary to describe how absolutely insane this video is and the mindset of anyone who believes it to be accurate.

Hey conservatives, you really want to do something edgy and daring around this issue?

Get to know a transgendered person and find out what his or her life is really like.

But he said he has a trans friend so it's okay! (sarcasm)

I suspect the bathroom encounters were staged. The hostile women sound like they're reciting internet comments. And the one friendly girl starts out with "you're transgender. How long have you been transgendered?" Really? (To be fair, I'm aware that transpeople do get nosey questions, but that sounded contrived.)

So a straight guy puts on a wig, a dress, and heels and doesn't even bother to cover up his 5 o'clock shadow, much less go through the hormone and surgical regimen and women see through it. Why didn't he just send in Rudy Giulani?
