Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., was roundly mocked on Twitter for using the term “menstruating person” instead of women in a recent interview.
On Tuesday, Ocasio-Cortez appeared on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” to discuss Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s statements on the Texas Heartbeat Act which prohibits abortions after six weeks. She claimed that the law was actually not “about supporting life” and instead was about controlling “women’s bodies” as well as “any menstruating person.”
“None of this is about supporting life. What this is about is controlling women’s bodies, & controlling people who are not cisgender men. 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,” she said.
Rep. @AOC: Texas’ pro-life law perpetuates “rape culture”

Hard to argue that this is an attack on women when you simultaneously abort their existence with “menstruating person.” https://t.co/up5GhJxpC1

"It's mind-blowing how broken the logic is for people like #AOC. And you can even hear her in her head thinking about — instead of just saying 'woman', she's thinking 'menstruating person'. – @ClayTravis pic.twitter.com/hn09iNhRxd

In the spirit of compromise, I’m fine with an exception to the law for all “menstruating persons.” https://t.co/W8ZiaOlMkk
