“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.”*

Young Turk (n), 1. Young progressive or insurgent member of an institution, movement, or political party. 2. A young person who rebels against authority or societal expectations.(American Heritage Dictionary)

Blogger, Performer, Truck Driver, Serial Careerist, Cigarette Butt Collector. Let me bitch at you every day until you sort your shit.


  1. honestly if i were the woman who was just trying to use the bathroom in peace, i would have started crying to really make that bitch look like a bully.

  2. Cenk said the sick person is the one who harasses the person who believes they are a different gender than the one they're born as. Are we sure they're the "sick" person?

  3. While I feel angry about WHY this woman is doing this (because SERIOUSLY?!?!), I’m still a kind of stuck at “why the hell are you LIVE streaming ANOTHER PERSON in the goddamn RESTAURANT?! Or if you’re taking a selfie of YOURSELF in the restroom, why is it of you TAKING A GIGANTIC SHIT?!”

  4. I love the TYT but in this case I have to pick the obvious side, the trans cant accept the right but we must to accept the wrong, every one feels offended in this case,if I'm a formula 1 racer I still have to respect the speed limit on the roads

  5. Just like when I asked you guys to cover me I’m a progressive candidate against a corporate Democrat and you absolutely know that so what you’re saying is an absolute ball place why you don’t cover actual grassroots progressive candidates when they’re not back by some organization that’s part of some bigger huger political party run organization it’s just that’s the fax and you guys know it

  6. I might do some funny things to get coverage In the near future but the fact remains that you guys don’t cover people like me that reach out that are truly progressive candidates have a great platform in our for the people you just go for the people that of happened endorsed by some bigger organization and the peons like me never get coverage so you’re right you’re part of the problem

  7. One question; how dose she know the persons genital structure Without looking into an Occupied stall?

  8. I have been harassed before for going in the women's restroom (which is on my birth certificate) and I'm trying to stay out of the one you want me out of!!

  9. So, it’s nothing about a man invading all only Female spaces because he “feels” like a Woman ( like, what feelings are qualified as Female? ) but everything to do with a drug addict. Imagine having male privilege to the point you can instantly claim Womanhood without suffering at the hands of men for being born Female and existing.

  10. She should have known better.. typical idiot.. what if some white anti immigrant, thug were to decide, she wasn’t worthy, to be where she is.. and went after her.. ?

  11. I feel sad for America RIP it's infested with trans and gays and now they got more rights than normal people lol😂

  12. Another chapter in my soon to be book: "Why do you care?" Where I baffle at people who care immensely about how others live.
