AOC is one the worst politicians to ever make their way into Congress. But that isn’t stopping her from making continuing to make ridiculous statements.
And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is in hot water after making this disturbing claim about children.
One of the largest culture wars plaguing the United States right now, is the issue of whether transgender women (men identifying as women) should be allowed to participate in women’s sports.
The vast majority of Republicans are against this, claiming that transgender women would have an unfair advantage over biological women.
Radical Leftists like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) however, believe the opposite and are against efforts to ban transgenders from competing in women’s sports.
While present at a House Oversight subcommittee hearing on the “Importance of Protecting Female Athletics and Title IX,” Ocasio-Cortez became angered during the ordeal and lashed out about “hearings of men attempting to restrict the rights of women and telling us it is for our own good.”
She then brought up language from an Ohio bill that sought to ban transgendered women from playing in women’s sports, which stated that women must go through “internal and external” examinations to see if they’re eligible to play in a women’s sporting league or not.
That language was removed from the bill but Ocasio-Cortez brought it up anyway.
“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,'” the New York congresswoman said.

Ocasio-Cortez then brought up abortion in an effort to make her case as to why transgendered women are now less safe due to efforts to keep them from playing sports with biological women.
“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?” she said.
“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.”
Riley Gaines, a former swimmer for the University of Kentucky, was present at the hearing to give her testimony about how she had to compete against Lia Thomas, a biological male, in the 2022 NCAA Championship.
Gaines pleaded to Congress that there are safety issues with allowing transgenders to compete and offered several examples in which women were severely injured by a transgendered woman competing against them.
“Let me be perfectly clear: a school that knowingly allows a male athlete to take a spot on a women’s team, or allows a male athlete to take the field in a woman’s game, is denying a female student an athletic opportunity,” Gaines stated.
“It is my sincere hope that members of this committee will take action ot stop the Biden administration’s illegal administrative rewrite of Title IX.”

Democrats claim that they are the party for women, but their actions in destroying women’s opportunities in sport through the allowed participation of transgendered athletes, only prove the opposite.
