Celebrity Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has advocated for legitimizing prostitution, declaring that "sex work" is real "work."

In a Tuesday tweet, Ocasio-Cortez commented on a Rolling Stone story about prostitution, where she promoted the industry by telling her fans that "sex work is work."

The Rolling Stone article accuses the New York Post of shaming a 23-year-old paramedic who began selling sexual services online to paid subscribers.

Quoting the article, AOC wrote, "Sex work is work.

"The federal gov has done almost nothing to help people in months.

"We must pass stimulus checks, UI, small biz relief, hospital funding, etc."

"Keep the focus of shame there, not on marginalizing people surviving a pandemic without help," she added.

Ironically, the Democratic lawmaker is a proponent of strict lockdown measures, which have caused the destruction of countless small businesses and grown mega-corporations like Amazon.

It’s also unfortunately pushed too many women toward solicitation sites like OnlyFans, according to The Daily Wire.

As noted by Fox News, AOC is not new to promoting and legitimizing prostitution: “Ocasio-Cortez has previously advocated for decriminalizing sex work. Last year she joined fellow progressives Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., in backing the SAFE SEX Workers Study Act.”

Mainstreaming prostitution, or so-called “sex work,” has feminists split.

While AOC is a proponent, feminist Julie Bindel has argued that legalizing the solicitation of women’s bodies is — surprise — harmful to women.

“One of the most persuasive myths about prostitution is that it is ‘the oldest profession’,” Bindel outlined at The Guardian in 2018.

"Feminist abolitionists, who wish to see an end to the sex trade, call it ‘the oldest oppression’ and resist the notion that prostitution is merely ‘a job like any other'.

“The practice of using human bodies as a marketplace has been normalised under the neoliberal economic system,” she said.

“Supporting the notion that prostitution is ‘labour’ is not a progressive or female-friendly point of view.”

“Any government that allows the decriminalisation of pimping and sex-buying sends a message to its citizens that women are vessels for male sexual consumption,” Bindel said.

“If prostitution is ‘work,’ will states create training programmes for girls to perform the ‘best o*** sex’ for sex buyers? …

"If prostitution is ‘sex work,’ then by its own logic, rape is merely theft.

"The inside of a woman’s body should never be viewed as a workplace.”

Sex trafficking survivor and advocate Eliza Bleu argued against the promotion of OnlyFans by actress Belle Thorne this summer.

Thorne, 23, joined the site in August — and made millions — in an effort to “normalize” “sex work,” she said.

“As a survivor advocate for those effected by human trafficking,” wrote Bleu, “you (Thorne) single handily [sic] increased folks risk of being trafficked.

"Our most vulnerable have been at risk all year. This made it worse.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) admitted in December that she rejected a relief bill from Republicans during the pandemic because Donald Trump was president.

As Neon Nettle reported at the time, Pelosi said that she’d now work with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), a Republican, to pass a smaller coronavirus relief packagebecause we have a new president.”
