Talk show host Rush Limbaugh used his program Thursday to discuss his views on the issue of transgender bathrooms.
According to Limbaugh, the issue is a result of a culture war that conservatives are losing.
A caller asked Limbaugh, “Why, if we can let anybody into any bathroom now, why do we have separate bathrooms for male and female? Are we going to go to just one common? Where are we going with this?”

Limbaugh answered by saying that if you go back one or two years, 95 percent of the population would oppose the idea of transgender bathrooms.
He went on to add that having separate restrooms, like marriage, has been defined as a specific thing for reasons that have been established over time as moral, correct and sensible. Limbaugh added, “Now all of a sudden that gets thrown out, and it’s all up to how somebody feels about themselves at a particular moment in time as to which bathroom they want to use, and with who.”
Limbaugh asserted that the issue comes down to the fact that it’s no longer about what is right and what is wrong. He charged the left has cleverly replaced right versus wrong with us versus them. He said he didn’t think the cultural war had been about right versus wrong for a long time.

Later in his broadcast, Limbaugh said, “The whole point of the us-versus-them battle has been to obliterate the whole notion of morality. Just wipe it out, on the belief that nobody has the right to define it. Nobody can write laws that are based on morality and have them apply to everybody, because your morality may differ from mine, and there isn’t any universal morality; there isn’t any universal right and wrong.”
