Dem Rep. Claims ‘Women Are… Not Fully Free, Still Shackled’

Democratic Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley took to the House of Representatives floor on Wednesday where she claimed women in the United States were “not fully free.”

They are “still shacked,” she claimed.

Pressley went on to claim that women suffer from “pregnancy discrimination, discrimination in the criminal legal system… and inadequate healthcare access.”

“But this isn’t an accident,” the Massachusetts Democrat continued. “The American Constitution is sexist by its very design.”

“This country’s laws have treated us like second-class citizens, depriving us of the right to vote, enter most jobs, and to own property,” she continued. “While some of these injustices may cease to exist, we still face tremendous barriers to our full participation in society.”

Confused? So were many of the people who responded to her comments online. Take a look at some of these responses via Twitchy:
