The Toxic Tears of AOC’s Femininity UPDATED
The Toxic Tears of AOC’s Femininity UPDATED
Congress’ own third-rate Kardashian, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is as hooked on celeb face time as any Hollywood actress-cum-barista. And nothing says attention me! like breathless little tales of fear, danger and noble victimhood, accompanied by squeezing out a few tears for the camera. Jussie Smollett couldn’t do better.
Victory Girls Toni Williams wrote about AOC’s highly manipulative Instagram post yesterday, including posting the whole 90 minutes of strum und drang. Go ahead and dip a toe into AOC’s practiced voice cracks and eye wipes. She’s a woman in her thirties acting with all the angst of a fifteen year old who believes the world is coming to an end because she didn’t get a Camry for her 16th birthday. Toni writes
In an overly dramatic bit of emotional manipulation, AOC apologizes to family and friends if they learn things about her that they never knew. She claims she was sexually assaulted in the past. I am not going to pass judgement about the veracity of that claim.
Well, I am certainly going to pass judgement.
Bovine excrement. She is shoveling so much so fast she could corner the fertilizer market in Iowa for 2021. I don’t buy for one moment Occasional-Cortex’s #metoo moment. This is Lena Dunham’s I waz raped by a Republican! foray to sell books – something so ham-fisted she later had to recant and apologize. This is Hillary’s being Under Sniper Fire, in service of garnering votes.
And this is Blasey-Fraud’s lies about Brett Kavanaugh and the usual Democrat playbook that anyone un-woke isn’t entitled to justice. We are to Believe.All.Left.Women.
Like the Blasey-Fraud’s little girl emoting, AOC’s sniffling gets results.
AOC just broke into tears on Instagram live and said she’s a survivor of sexual assault, and the Republicans telling her to “just move on” from the attack on the Capitol, in which her life was threatened, are using abusers’ tactics.

Even in face of AOC’s proven track record of Crying for Clicks.

additional pictures surfaced showing her group was in fact in front of a gate with no children in sight, only slightly bewildered Border Patrol agents that appear to be wondering about the photo op that was occurring.
Dear Lord in Heaven … how the hell did we get to this place where every claim of victimhood, regardless of veracity, is accepted as Gospel Truth? Add a few tears and suddenly a great mantle of inviolability settles on the shoulders of the Politically-Acceptable Victim, protecting them from every criticism.
For way too long, women have been allowed to get away with Toxic Femininity. As a society, we’ve gone over the top in dealing with toxic masculinity to to point where even normative masculine traits and behaviors are looked at askance (note: only if they are exhibited by natal males). But I have yet to see even the inkling of a movement to teach girls to get hold of the more poisonous aspects of their nature.
And that’s emotionality — especially the use of tears as weapons of mass manipulation. Little boys have a tendency to hit and/or break things when they are upset. As responsible parents, we are to teach them other strategies to deal with overwhelming floods of emotion. We should be doing the same thing with little girls who bust out in copious tears when things don’t go their way. I raised four daughters and even they remember my saying when I heard yet another round of tears being employed to get their way … “With that much crying, there’d better be bleeding going on.”
And society – from family and friends to the larger community of mere witness — we should never accept tales of victimhood just because they are recalled with sniffles.
Let me be clear. I do not buy the claim that if we don’t #BelieveAllWomen that somehow makes other women not share their stories. In fact, I would say the demand for promiscuous acceptance does more to discourage people because their story – even if accompanied by evidence – will be viewed with skepticism.
It’s like the highly publicized stories of Hate Crime Victims that are later revealed as hoaxes. My default position is it is a hoax until proven otherwise
Women, of course share your experiences with family and friends. Report criminal acts as soon as they happen. But if you expect to go 20-30-40 years before “oh by the way, let me tell you something I never told anyone else …
Shut The F*** Up Unless you have a notarized confession from the person you’re accusing or other actual evidence, I not only won’t believe you, I’ll start exploring what you hope to gain from the timing of your public confessional.
Any wonder that marriage rates have fallen? Who wants to even try to be in a relationship with woman who has all the self-control and morals of a spoiled toddler.
UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE
AOC’s brave little tale of fear and trauma under
sniper fire LARPer assault is as fake as her tears …
Republican Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC), whose office is two doors down from Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, noted that “insurrectionists” never made it to their hall when the U.S. Capitol building was breached on Jan. 6. Mace made the note while hitting the media for their attempts to “fan fictitious news flames” about the breach.
.@AOC made clear she didn’t know who was at her door. Breathless attempts by media to fan fictitious news flames are dangerous.
My office is 2 doors down. Insurrectionists never stormed our hallway. Egregious doesn’t even begin to cover it. Is there nothing MSM won’t politicize? pic.twitter.com/Tl1GiPSOft
