Stacey Dash is at it again. This time, she’s getting slammed for saying transgender people should go to the bathroom in the bushes.

The actress is out promoting her new memoir, “There Goes My Social Life: From Clueless to Conservative,” and it is already proving to be as controversial as the Fox pundit herself.

During an interview with “Entertainment Tonight” Dash asserted that being transgender, like Caitlyn Jenner, is a lifestyle choice.

“It’s your body! So, it’s your decision, right?” she said. “We all make choices.”

When rebutted with the argument that transgender people don’t choose what they feel is their true gender identity, Dash said, “OK, then go in the bushes. I don’t know what to tell you, but I’m not gonna put my child’s life at risk because you want to change a law. So that you can be comfortable with your beliefs — which means I have to change my beliefs and my rights? No.”

The former “Clueless” star is no stranger to controversy. In January, she was slammed for saying she believed both Black History Month and the BET network should be abolished.

In her book, Dash also recounts what she says was her rape at the hands of an abusive man. The actress told People she shot at her attacker and the experience strengthened her views on gun control.

“A gun saved my life,” she said. “That’s why my Second Amendment right will not be taken away from me.”

Dash’s book is scheduled for release June 6.
