AOC Fawns over Radical Professor Who Told Sen. Hawley Men Can Become Pregnant

Senate Judiciary Committee

Far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY)  took to Twitter to thank Berkeley School of Law professor Khiara Bridges “for [her] service” after Bridges told Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) that men can get pregnant, and that by questioning that he was opening “up trans people to violence by not recognizing them.”

The exchange between Bridges and Hawley took place during a Senate Judiciary Hearing Tuesday that focused on legal effects derived from the Supreme Court’s overturning of the longstanding Roe v. Wade decision.

“Thank you for your service, Professor Bridges,” the progressive representative from New York wrote in her post before mentioning January 6. “Also lol @ Hawley’s feigned shock at the recognition that he incites violence. The man raised a fist w/ Jan 6th-ers who yelled ‘Hang Mike Pence’ & fundraised off it. Now he wants to be all ‘Me?? Opening people to violence??'”

Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA)  joined Ocasio-Cortez in lauding Bridges.

A Washington Post subheading states that Hawley “refused to acknowledge that some transgender men can get pregnant.”

At the beginning of the now-viral back and forth, Hawley asked Bridges what she meant when she spoke of “people with the capacity for pregnancy.”

“Would that be women?” he wondered.

“Many women, cis women, have the capacity for pregnancy. Many cis women do not have the capacity for pregnancy,” she said in her response. “There are also trans men who are capable of pregnancy, as well as nonbinary people who are capable of pregnancy.”

Hawley then asked, “So this isn’t really a women’s rights issue … it’s what?” before Bridges interjected.

“We can recognize that this impacts women while also recognizing that it impacts other groups,” she asserted. “Those things are not mutually exclusive, Senator Hawley.” 

“So your view is that the core of this right then is about what?” Hawley asked again, prompting Bridges to assert that his “line of questioning is transphobic, and it opens up trans people to violence by not recognizing them.”

After the exchange, Hawley tweeted that “[a]ccording to today’s Democrat party, if you believe that only women get pregnant, you are a bigot and responsible for violence.” He also appeared on Fox News Channel’s Hannity and tweeted a clip from his segment on the show.

“These are the same people, the same Democrat leaders, who want to force young women to compete against biological men in girls’ sports, now we know why,” he told host Sean Hannity. “For all parents out there who are like ‘Why in the world do all of these Democrats what to eliminate girls’ sports?’ now you know why. They don’t believe there is any such thing as a woman.”
