Wife walked in and asked what I'm laughing at. I told her it would take too long to explain. And we haven't even gotten into the part where Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez showed up in the stream.

Lawmakers who supported the bill said they believed discussions on gender belong in the home, not in schools. “I’m 36 years old, and I’m still confused as to what woman-ness and man-ness is,” offered the bill’s sponsor, Rep.
