And one of the things they utterly hated Christians for was taking those newborns out of the sewers to (1) raise, or (2) comfort as they died from the horrible things helpless newborns would encounter in the sewers. How dare those Christians interfere with their right to dispose of unwanted offspring?The Romans had really good ways to handle unwanted babies. They just left the newborns in the sewers. They believed they weren't actually people yet, and since Rome at the height of its power was so focused on self pleasure, there were tons of 'sacks of flesh, not people' to dump like shit into a literal sewer.

I think it's perhaps a bit more sinister, but unconsciously so (because, again, she never questions): SJWs tend to regard social media as a hivemind. She was running to seek guidance from the Hive and demonstrate her belonging. "Gee whiz, I have had a Normal Experience (tm) that causes me to be Like Folks. Look at how Typical I am, how Normal!"Still, AOC running to social media to learn about them is indicative of how someone with an allegedly working brain ends up so stupid. She’s incurious, she’s never just asked a question about something and googled it.
And, because she is so far removed from reality, she ends up instead demonstrating how privileged she has grown up--that she has never had to turn on the switches in the kitchen before.
