A University of Kentucky student went viral after shutting down a conservative activist asking 'transphobic' questions about bathroom use by transgender. The video shows 'gun girl' Kaitlin Bennet interviewing the student, Michael Hawse who confidently takes up all the questions. Hawse is now using his newfound notoriety to raise money for pediatric cancer research, as per some media reports.
When Bennet asked the student about putting up urinals in women's washroom, he replied, "I think people make too big a f'*****g deal about it, I don't really care." Then Bennet goes on to ask Hawse about putting up of tampons in men's washroom, to which he says, "I don't really care. If a dude wants a tampon for some reason, he can have a tampon. That’s not my business."

It's hilarious when extremist realize normal people aren't concerned with controlling what other people do with their bodies.— 90$babe (@90babe1) January 11, 2020
I'll say it again bathrooms are for peeing and pooping not caring about what is between someone's legs.— Ctonhunter 🅙‽ (@Ctonhunter) January 11, 2020
Kaitlin Bennet shot to fame in 2018 after she openly carried an AR-15 rifle at Kent State University after graduation to advocate for gun rights. After the incident, Kaitlin stated that as a student, she should be allowed to open carry a gun for self-defence. After all the media attention, Kaitlin became a correspondent for a far-right American conspiracy theory and fake news website, Infowars.
