The Trauma of Her Moral Highness, AOC

I thought the attack on the Capitol was funny as hell and long overdue. I wouldn’t want the people behind it to be the ones who are actually running the government (I don’t want anyone running the government) but there was no chance of that happening. It’s a shame people died but one of them ran into the line of fire, the others were a statistical probability anytime a bunch of overweight old farts gathers, and the cop who was killed was moving to protect the state so that’s on him.

The insufferable Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) was in the news again, having discoursed at length on social media about her experience during the bizarre events in the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. The video showcases what she does best: talk lugubriously about herself and all the things that are causing her pain and suffering.

Here’s some of what we learned about the effects of the day on this poor, delicate soul.

In the therapeutic language of the current moment, Ocasio-Cortez is a “survivor of sexual assault.” Under expanded definitions created by partisan academics, sexual assault now includes many acts that, however inappropriate, unfortunate, and potentially legally actionable, are very far from the violence and moral dreadfulness of rape. Such “survivors” include fully-clothed women whom a male acquaintance hugged or attempted to kiss without their permission, and women who had what an objective onlooker might well have understood as consensual sexual contact while under the influence of alcohol, later suffering regrets about it.

Ocasio-Cortez gives no further information on the nature of her assault, but if her claim concerns something more egregious than the examples above, we await word on the details. My guess is they won’t be forthcoming. AOC knows quite well how invoking this term in a deliberately imprecise way adds additional victimization weight to her exaggerated claims about the danger she faced on Jan. 6.
