Gay rights foe Randy Thomasson, executive director of Save California, on Tuesday called a transgender man a “lady” on cable television.

Thomasson appeared on CNN Newsroom opposite Masen Davis, executive director of the Transgender Law Center, to discus a California law, signed on Monday by Governor Jerry Brown, which allows a transgender K-12 student access to school facilities such as locker rooms, bathrooms and teams based on his or her gender identity.

“If a child is sexually confused they need professional counseling,” Thomasson said about the bill. “Lots of children are being molested in America, lots of children are being abandoned by one or the other parent, and that creates a problem with the child's expectations with their mind. So a child that is sexually confused, they need professional counseling. My opponent on this is saying, 'Look this is a rights issue.' What about the rights of a child to be sexually comfortable in the bathroom? What about the rights of millions and millions of Californian children and their parents? You know, this is trampling the rights of everybody else.”

At the end of the segment, Thomasson told Davis and host Brooke Baldwin: “Hey, good to talk to you ladies.”
