Twitter blasts ex-Pussycat Doll Kaya Jones for gender-neutral washroom rant

“I am a true warrior for my gender. I don’t want anyone telling me as a woman who can come into my bathroom. ”

Kaya Jones, formerly of the Pussycat Dolls (the inescapable mid-2000s girl group, who gave “Buttons” a whole new definition) proved over the weekend that it isn’t just her music career that’s stuck in the 00s. The singer, who a long history of right-wing trolling, has been an outspoken advocate of Donald Trump, even holding membership in the  National Diversity Coalition for Trump, and has been a regular guest on Fox news, levelled up her ignorance when she posted a video on Saturday about her “opinions” on gender-neutral washrooms:

Clearly, an attempt to fuel a discussion that’s been at the centre of an intense partisan,debate. Thankfully, the Internet was ready with well-deserved criticisms:

Jones, however, doubled down in response to the heat her video received. She proclaimed herself to be a “true warrior for [her] gender” because “I don’t want men in my bathroom. It makes me very uncomfortable” making it crystal clear that she has an extremely narrow conception of who does and doesn’t belong to the very gender she claims to supposedly be a warrior for.
