Caitlyn Jenner was mocked online after she awkwardly appeared to forget she has daughters while suggesting transgender students should be forced to change in a separate locker room.
Jenner made the remark during an appearance on Fox and Friends in response to reports several female students at a Vermont High School were banned from their locker room over their objections to a transgender student.
You can hear what she said in the video below.
When asked if transgender students should be forced to change in a separate locker room, Jenner said:
"First of all, yes, I mean if the girls are uncomfortable and I don't blame him."
"If I had a daughter, I would want my... my daughter would be uncomfortable there."
"So the trans person can obviously use a different area of the locker room and then everybody's happy."
Jenner's statement is particularly odd because she has not one daughter, but three.
She is the parent of social media influencers Kendall and Kylie Jenner from her marriage to Kris Kardashian. She also has a daughter named Cassandra Jenner Marino from her marriage to actress Chrystie Crownover Scott.
During her marriage to Kardashian, she was also the stepparent to Kardashian's children from her previous marriage, including influencers Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian.
Jenner was swiftly mocked for her remarks.
Anti-trans sports bills have swept the nation amid a larger conversation about transgender inclusivity in sports.
Earlier this year, after Kentucky Democratic Governor Andy Beshear vetoed a bill banning transgender girls from participating in school sports, Kentucky Republicans moved swiftly to override it, enacting a bill that would require parents to show birth certificates for their children to participate in school sports.
The bill, Senate Bill 93, affects just one student—a transgender girl in the eighth grade who is now forbidden from playing on the same team as her friends.
Beshear said the legislation "most likely violates the equal protection rights afforded by the United States Constitution," adding it discriminates against transgender children who want to participate in girls’ or women’s sports "without presenting a single instance in Kentucky of a child gaining a competitive edge as a result of sex reassignment."
This spring, Elaine Gannon, a Missouri Republican, sparked outrage online after she asked a nonbinary teenager to go on record about their genitals during a meeting regarding transgender students playing sports.
The teenager, a 14-year-old named Avery who toldThe Advocate they had been testifying against anti-trans bills with their mother “for years,” appeared incredulous when they heard Gannon's line of questioning.
Gannon made the remarks during a hearing to discuss Missouri State Senate Bill No. 781, a measure later approved banning trans women and girls from participating in sports teams that match their gender identity.
