“The Young Turks” co-host Ana Kasparian doubled down this week on slamming woke terms like “birthing person” after she angered left-wing activists online last month when she ripped “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 The Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro back in 2021.

“Lol! The meltdowns over wanting be referred to as a woman rather than a ‘birthing person’ is pretty wild,” she tweeted this week. “I’ll never apologize for that, especially as biological woman who has had a f***ing lifetime of being told I’m less than. I’m a woman. No apologies.”

When asked if anyone had actually called her a “birthing person,” Kasparian responded, “Yes … I live in CA.”

Last month, Kasparian ripped woke terminology, saying, “I’m a woman. 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?” she added. “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.”

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


She did, however, receive support 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.”
