Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson on Thursday suggested creating separate bathrooms for transgender people.

In an interview with Fusion's Jorge Ramos from Miami, Carson was asked about Tuesday's defeat of a law banning LGBT discrimination in Houston.

“How about we have a transgender bathroom?” Carson said.

“It is not fair for them to make everybody else uncomfortable. It’s one of the things that I don’t particularly like about the [LGBT] movement. I think everybody has equal rights, but I’m not sure that anybody should have extra rights – extra rights when it comes to redefining everything for everybody else and imposing your view on everybody else,” he added.

Chad Griffin, president of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation's largest LGBT rights advocate, condemned Carson's remarks as “dangerously transphobic.”

“Ben Carson's hateful comments are out of touch and all candidates should immediately make clear that they disavow his dangerously transphobic views,” Griffin said in a statement. “Ben Carson can't go a week without invoking reckless and irresponsible stereotypes about the LGBT community, and his suggestion that transgender people be required to use segregated bathrooms echoes an ugly past our country should never revisit.”
