Candace Owens declared “Women are women,” in a rebuttal that seems to take the men out of “menstruating person,” a term U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) coined in a discussion about Texas Governor Greg Abbott.
In an interview with a guest anchor during the Fox News show Tucker Carlson, Owens lashed out at AOC’s reduction of women through the use of revisionist vocabulary.
“Are women even allowed to exist anymore?” Owens asked, before expressing anger that women will “not even be allowed to formulate the word ‘woman’.”
Governor Abbott recently signed S.B. 8, which has been called the “heartbeat bill” because it creates a civil cause of action against Texans who perform or abet abortions after a fetus’ heartbeat has been detected by a doctor. The Justice Department is looking to challenge the bill, according to a statement issued Monday by U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland.
In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Ocasio-Cortez argued that the heartbeat bill has less to do with supporting life than it does about controlling women’s bodies. The New York Congresswoman said the Texas governor may not be “familiar with a menstruating person’s body – in fact, I do know he’s not familiar with a woman – a female – a menstruating person’s body.”
Owens, a well-known conservative author and commentator appears as a regular guest on Fox News broadcasts. In the Tucker Carlson interview, said Ocasio-Cortez is apparently afraid of woke repercussions if she failed to distinguish women from “menstruating people.”
“Isn’t it so sad we have to talk about basic biology, especially when you are dealing with someone who is a 32-year-old congresswoman — I’m sorry, did I say woman, I meant to say ‘Congressmenstruatingperson’ – because were not allowed to say woman,” said Owens, also 32.
“If you can’t identify women, you have no place in the abortion debate,” Owens chided Ocasio-Cortez.
