The Young Turks” co-host Ana Kasparian on Thursday set the internet ablaze when she ripped woke “trans inclusive” terms for being “degrading” to women.

Kasparian, an unapologetic member of the Left, has caught flak from some extremists on her side of the aisle in the past for engaging in debate and discussion with people on the Right, most notably Daily Wire emeritus Ben Shapiro back in 2021.

“I’m a woman,” the pundit tweeted Thursday. “Please don’t ever refer to me as a person with a uterus, birthing person, or person who menstruates. How do people not realize how degrading this is? You can support the transgender community without doing this s***.”

Taking on a critic from the Left complaining about so-called inclusion, Kasparian responded, “I have zero problem with inclusion. None. But there’s gotta be a better way than boiling it down to a body part, no? Especially in the context of having reproductive rights taken away from people who just see women as a baby-making vessel. That’s all I’m saying.”

Unsurprisingly, the liberal host was attacked and called names, such as “transphobe,” from some on the Left.

One male Twitter user responded to Kasparian, “Oh f*** off with this made up bulls***. Trans folks are having their existence in state after state and you want to whine about this s***.”

“Ana Kasparian going mask off transphobe bigot was not on my 2023 bingo card,” an attack read.

“She’s choosing bigot-mongering optics over marginalized folks,” a Twitter user charged.

Another person posted, “I prefer my feminism to include everyone. My womanhood isn’t threatened by the existence of non binary or trans people. Why is yours?”

“Literally no one is earth is telling you that you cannot call yourself a woman or that they won’t refer to you as a woman. A completely made up problem,” someone else accused.

She also received support, including from her co-host and The Young Turks (TYT) founder Cenk Uygur, who retweeted Kasparian’s viral tweet and made it clear he supports her, even if they have disagreements.

“If you think I’m going to tell my female co-host what she can call herself or what words she’s allowed to use, you’re nuts,” he wrote. “And you don’t know me at all. We do something radical at TYT, we let everyone have their own opinion. I know it’s a novel concept in media.”

Further, when a Twitter user told Uygur his co-host was not going to “learn” from her apparently inappropriate tweet, he fired back, “This kind of patronizing attitude makes people loathe far-left extremists. Who the f*** are you to say that Ana should ‘learn’ what to say? Here is a man explaining to a woman what she should call herself. This mansplainer probably pretends to be a progressive.”

Folks on the Right weighed-in, too.

Ben Shapiro retweeted Kasparian’s post, and author and Daily Wire+ host Jordan Peterson told the liberal, “You are about to learn something [Ana Kasparian]” — a reference to the attacks she ultimately received. 

“Your ‘side’ is gonna roast you now. I hope you’re ready for the tolerance,” rapper and commentator Zuby told Kasparian.

“They have the right to speak their piece, as do I,” the TYT host responded.

“Yes you do,” Zuby said. “I just hope you’re prepared for the blowback and won’t back down or apologise for wanting to be called what you are.”

“I regret to inform you that you have just endorsed literal genocide,” journalist Michael Tracy quipped, referring to unhinged Left-wing reactions to critics of the transgender ideology.

“Never apologize for this,” CEO of The Babylon Bee Seth Dillon said, warning, “Just keep in mind that going along with what they’re doing is the only way to support them. You either join them in their hostile takeover of what’s real and true or you don’t.”
