Stinker Quote of the Week: 'At Risk'

"Women are definitely more at risk. That's just a fact that men are more aggressive than women, and it's more common for them to commit rape."

—Rep. Robert Foster, R-Hernando

Why it stinks: Saying that women are "at risk" of sexual assault by allowing trans-inclusive bathroom policies is not only an argument for discrimination, but also untrue. In places where there are trans-inclusive policies, those policies haven't been responsible for an increase in sexual assault cases. Women may be more at risk of being accused of being transgender, or being demanded to prove that they're not.
