Cruz, who is much more conservative than Trump, immediately tweeted against Donald’s comment by saying “Common sense: grown men shouldn’t be in bathrooms w/ little girls,” doubly negating his opponent’s openness and demonstrating his own refusal to accept that people may not identify with their biological sex from birth.

The idea that grown men would be allowed alone in a bathroom with little girls —you don’t need to be a behavioral psychologist to realize bad things can happen and any prudent person wouldn’t allow that.”
