Being the gender you are is now a privilege
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez acknowledged her “privilege” as a “cisgendered woman” during a podcast interview this week, explaining she will never know the “trauma” of being transgender.
Her comments came during a wide-ranging discussion with The Intercept, a liberal news site.
“Almost every single person in this country can acknowledge some privilege of some type, you know?” Ocasio-Cortez said. “I’m a cisgendered woman. You know, I will never know the trauma of feeling like I’m not born in the right body. And that, that is a privilege that I have — no matter how poor my family was when I was born.”

Even intersectionality Democratic darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez acknowledges she has some privilege. And, no, it’s not the privilege of growing up in the largely affluent Westchester county. According to the freshman congresswoman, she inherited “cisgender privilege.”
Speaking on The Intercept podcast this week, Ocasio-Cortez talked in depth about all kinds of privilege in the United States, from white privilege to gender privilege. First, she asserted that woke white people need to go beyond simply acknowledging the racism that pervades all of American society.
“Acknowledging racism is a really big step. It’s a really big step from where we were … It’s nowhere near enough and the solutions are so painful,” she said.
Ocasio-Cortez went on to claim that white people have a painful time acknowledging the privilege they inherited because it damages their sense of identity.
