Well, isn’t this something? Representative Alexandria Ocasio Cortez has come out in opposition to her own party in the heated debate over mail-in voting for the 2020 election. Proving herself to be a maverick once again, the 30-year-old Democratic Socialist from New York has strongly condemned the efforts to enact a nationwide vote-by-mail system on the grounds of it’s rampant and blatant sexism.
“I can’t believe I have to say this,” AOC told supporters over livestream, “But females should get to vote too. I don’t want a bunch of men deciding what’s best for me. We’ve had vote-by-male before and it didn’t work. If anything, I think we should have vote-by-female. It’s ridiculous. It’s absolutely ridiculous.”
Wow. Powerful stuff. Will the shameless sexists in her party (not to mention the serial rapists in the GOP) come around to the right side of history, or will they remain regressive troglodytes forever? Lol, too soon to tell. All this reporter has to say about the matter is that I’m with her.
