Radical Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is facing mockery for the demeaning way in which she chose to defend women’s alleged “right” to abortion.
Speaking on CNN late Tuesday about the Texas heartbeat abortion law, she reduced biological women to demeaning, nonsensical, pseudo-scientific terms like “people who do give birth,” “people who are not cisgender men” and “menstruating persons.”
Early in the interview on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360,” she was asked to respond specifically to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s insistence that the Texas heartbeat abortion law isn’t a burden on women who were impregnated by rape.
During a press conference earlier that day, he’d made it clear that the bill doesn’t block rape victims from obtaining an abortion “because obviously, it provides at least six weeks for a person to be able to get an abortion.”
Ocasio-Cortez argued on CNN that the remarks are “disgusting” for two reasons, one of which involved so-called “menstruating people.”
“I don’t know if he is familiar with a menstruating person’s body. In fact, I do know that he’s not familiar with a woman — with a female or menstruating person’s body because if he did, he would know that you don’t have six weeks,” she said.
Notice how she started off with the correct terms — “woman” and “female” — but couldn’t resist then switching to pseudo-scientific “woke” terminology. Ironically, she then had the nerve to lecture Abbott about biological science.
“I’m sorry we have to break … down biology 101 on national television, but in case no one has informed him before in our life, six weeks pregnant means two weeks late for your period,” she said.
Slightly later in the conversation, she again began spouting pseudo-scientific terminology — all while ostensibly defending women.
“When we talk about the law that was passed in Texas, we know that anti-choice bills are not about being pro-life, because if they were about being pro-life, then the Republican Party would support, frankly, an agenda that helps guaranteed healthcare, that helps ensure that people who do give birth that don’t have the resources to care for a child can have that care for a child,” she said.
“People who do give birth” are known as women.
“So we know that none of this is about life. None of this is about supporting life. What this is about is controlling women’s bodies, and controlling people who are not cisgender men,” she added.
Anyone who’s actually studied biology 101 would know that biological men who identify as “transgender women” are also “not cisgender men,” and that they sure as heck are neither able to menstruate nor give birth.
“This is about making sure that someone like me, as a woman, or any menstruating person in this country cannot make decisions over their own body. And people like Governor Abbott and Mitch McConnell want to have more control over a woman’s body than that woman or that person has over themselves,” the congresswoman continued.
She then accused Abbott and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of perpetuating so-called “rape culture.” It’s not clear what McConnell has to do with a law passed in Texas.
“What that shares with rape culture is that sexual assault is about the abuse of power, and sexual assault is about asserting control over another person,” she said.
Her incoherent, inconsistent, pseudo-scientific mumbo jumbo spawned widespread criticism and mockery.
Critics mocked her for being so ignorant about real biological science, for purporting to be defending women’s rights even as she demeaned women and for being unable to keep up with her own “woke” nonsense.

The fiercest criticism came from former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, a biological woman who has no qualms about telling it like it is.
Speaking on Fox News’ “Fox News Primetime” late Wednesday, she laid waste to Ocasio-Cortez’s “fake feminism.”
“AOC, she’s really milking this, isn’t she. She’s such a fake feminist that she would bring up an issue like this and try to use it to make some kind of political point. … She should be embarrassed to even have tried to bring up an issue like that and make her political point. She’s so off-base politically, but off-base even in this analogy or whatever it is that she’s throwing out. She’s milking the whole female thing,” she said.
“And as a real feminist, I’m embarrassed for her. A real feminist is one who knows that they are capable and they are equal. They are capable of doing a lot more than AOC gives women credit for. Yes, we can give life to a child and at the same time pursue education and pursue career and take care of our other children or give a child up for adoption if we do not feel that we can take care of that child,” Palin added.
“She has no idea. Her world view is this big. She has no idea what it’s like to be a mother of a special needs child, what it’s like to be a mother of a veteran, what’s what it is like to be the mother of a teenage daughter who finds herself in less than ideal circumstance,” the firebrand conservative continued.
“All these things that the rest of America, we do face, and we’re able then to make judgments and make our decisions on those life experiences. She’s got this much. and she’s running the show?” Palin concluded.
