Actress Zoe Kazan’s Message Regarding Smears Of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Is Straight Up Truth

The world we live in is built on and founded in men oppressing, persecuting, and belittling women as often as possible. Unfortunately as much as we have progressed in recent years, this demonization of women remains alive and well, even rampant, especially when it comes to women in politics.

New York Congresswoman Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez has been one of the most progressive figures we’ve ever seen in politics, and not once has she apologized or stepped back from it – and as a result, she has amassed a ton of unwavering support.

She also has a massive influence on social media, and as many people do, she often spreads her message and shares her opinions on these platforms.

But, being so progressive does have some drawbacks. She is being criticized not only by Republicans, but also by Democrats, who are suggesting she choose between being a political figure and voicing her concerns and opinions on social media. One Democratic representative told Politico: 

“She needs to decide: Does she want to be an effective legislator or just continue being a Twitter star?”

Which is, absurd, considering our President is known more for his ridiculous tweets than he is his policies.

Seems the one thing that Republicans and Democrats share is pure, unadulterated fear of Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez. 

Another member of the Democratic Party actually approached Politico Congress Reporter Rachel Bade and said he would like to give some advice and share his concerns with the congresswoman, however he is afraid that she will “mean-tweet” him:

She casually made history as the youngest woman ever elected into Congress. Some brought up videos of her dancing in college to humiliate her and failed, because she responded with a glorious new video of her dancing into her office, saying “Wait till they find out Congresswomen dance too!”

Ruby Sparks actress Zoe Kazan is one of many people who’ve had enough of this, and so she tweeted about the situation:

The screenwriter and playwright pointed out that this shames all women and girls who aspire to run for office – and convinces them that how they are dressing, acting, speaking, and what they are doing isn’t ever going to be good enough and someone can dig up dirt from their past. Even if it is something as harmless as dancing in a logo tee.

Kazan continued and asked people to defend the congresswoman, as a means to defend all women:

People thanked Kazan for addressing this:

And agreed:

People encouraged and cheered on the congresswoman:

One person noted that she has a major advantage being so young because she is fighting based on what she hears and sees from governing bodies now, as opposed to fragments of what they used to be.

Everyone seems to agree that these defaming articles being written about her on such small, minute things are a defense, because both parties are terrified of Ocasio-Cortez:

Republicans and Democrats alike understand what she is capable of accomplishing. Plus, she is a strong woman which always tends to instill some intimidation in people.

Many are saying that this teasing is not only ineffective, but actually has the opposite effect:

Ocasio-Cortez is standing her ground and holding her own and, as a result, encouraging women and girls to do the same.

Ocasio-Cortez continues to be a strong, shining example for girls and women everywhere:

And, along with that she continues to gain more and more support from the people, who were the ones who elected her into office in the first place.
