Talked about the incident during an interview with Jesse Watters fox news, Hoover Institute senior fellow Victor Davis and the focus on Brinton’s gender identity rather than their crime.

Davis said, “[You can] live in society as long as you don’t essentialize your race or your gender or your sexual beliefs but if you make that essential to you then you have to play by the rules and if you have a downside people will say “well that’s part of your essential character.”‘

He continued, “So that’s his problem, that he started releasing pictures of himself cross-dressing, talking about being transgender. And that became his essence. If that is his essence, and then he commits theft, and then he lies about it to the police, and those are crimes, then he is identified as transgender.”

The man then accused the “left” of making one’s race, gender and sexual identity “essential.”

He said, ‘They’re essentializing it. Then they take the flip side along with the publicity side. I don’t think they want the benefit, but they’re not willing to say, ‘Well, don’t characterize me as transgender,’ and I think that’s the problem.”
