Fox News has been known to say some pretty questionable things every now and then. This time, they've taken aim at young women.

On Tuesday, Kimberly Guilfoyle said that young women shouldn't take on the task of voting because they haven't acquired the same amount of "life experience" that older women have.

"It's the same reason why young women on juries are not a good idea. They don't get it!" "The Five" co-host said.

Her comments came after co-host Greg Gutfeld announced, "With age comes wisdom" and the "older you get, the more conservative you get."

Guilfoyle agreed, adding that you can't make an informed decision when voting until you've experienced life as an adult, and share adult responsibilities, like paying bills.

Guilfoyle explained, "They're {young women} like healthy and hot and running around without a care in the world. They can go back on Tinder of Match.com."

Earlier this month, co-host Harris Faulkner said young people shouldn't be casting votes if they "don't know the issues."

The "Outnumbered" host protested, "Do you really want to motivate them to vote and be ignorant at the polls?"

Turns out, the network is going after a demographic that already has a notoriously low voter turnout.

According to The Center for Information & Research on Civic Learning and Engagement, a mere 24% of young American citizens aged 18 to 29 cast a vote in the 2010 Midterm Election.

But just because young people aren't showing up at the polls doesn't mean they shouldn't. Some young adults feel closer politics than ever. Jacob Bell, a 20-year-old student at the University of Maryland told NPR, " I can pull up Facebook in front of me and see five different articles about the next Senate race, and that's something that I know my mom's generation never had."
