So she supports Lady Ballers. I would never have expected that. You go, AOC!
If I were the daily wire I’d be using this tweet in ads.
“Squad” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., claimed that “all” underage women will face “genital examinations” if biological men are barred from women’s sports.
Ocasio-Cortez made her claim during the Tuesday House Oversight Subcommittee on Health hearing featuring NCAA swimming legend and women’s sports advocate Riley Gaines.
The New York Democrat said there were several proposals looking to “marginalize” transgender Americans before claiming during her questioning that women would have to get their pants checked if someone disbelieves their stated gender.
“We are talking about opening up all women and girls to genital examinations when they are underage, potentially just because someone can point to someone and say, I don’t think you are a girl,” she claimed.
“And we’re saying this in an environment of a post-Dobbs America, where states are criminalizing access to abortion and want nothing more than data on women to figure out when, who’s getting a menstrual cycle, who doesn’t have one, and we’re supposed to believe this is going to make us better and safer?”
“I think not, and, per usual, I don’t believe we’re sitting here on a panel of men that has actually thought about the biology and privacy consequences of all women, trans or cisgendered,” the “Squad” Democrat added.
Ocasio-Cortez’s claim comes almost a year after the Ohio state Senate removed a controversial provision from a state House proposal barring biological men from competing against women, which would have required “internal and external” exams to confirm a student-athlete’s gender.
