When Rev. Jesse Jackson sat down to talk with KIRO Radio’s Jason Rantz at the Democratic National Convention, Rantz couldn’t help but ask the human rights activist about his experience with all-gender bathrooms.
“It’s not the end of the world,” Jackson responded. “It’s what you have at your house – an all-gender bathroom.”
The issue of transgender rights and the use of public bathrooms has become a battle in communities across the country. News agencies took notice when the DNC converted some bathrooms into all-gender restrooms. Jackson said it’s actually not as big a deal as many make it out to be.
“Just learn to respect people,” he said. “It’s a bit different because they are strangers. But we will adjust to that. It’s just a matter of maturing.”
But bathroom talk wasn’t the only thing Rantz wanted to chat about. Jackson also commented on other hot topics.
