Last year, the editor of The Lancet, a British medical journal, apologized for a cover that referred to “bodies with vaginas” rather than women.If you advocate for women's rights, then you are a bigot, because you are not using inclusionary language.
Today, “pregnant people” and “birthing people” have elbowed aside “pregnant women.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has a section on “Care for Breastfeeding People,” the governor of New York issued guidance on partners accompanying “birthing people” during Covid, and city and some state health departments offer “people who are pregnant” advice on “chestfeeding.”
The Cleveland Clinic, a well-known nonprofit hospital, posed a question on its website: “Who has a vagina?” Its answer begins, “People who are assigned female at birth (AFAB) have vaginas.” The American Cancer Society website recommends cancer screenings for “people with a cervix.”
This reflects a desire by medical professionals to find a language that does not exclude and gives comfort to those who give birth and identify as nonbinary or transgender.
Fox News broadcast a pro-trans video. The girl showed boyish tendencies at age 2, and the parents fully supported transitioning at age 5. The mom said that she was convinced that the child might commit suicide otherwise.
I tried to follow the Johnny Depp v Amber Heard case, but I missed how it was ultimately driven by Leftist hatred of Pres. Trump. An ACLU deposition disclosed that the ACLU wrote to Heard's publicist, saying:
“I’d like your and Amber’s thoughts on doing an op-ed in which she discusses the ways in which survivors of gender-based violence have been made less safe under the Trump administration, and how people can take action.” ...That's right, the libelous newspaper op-ed was ghostwritten by a Leftist organization to make false sexual violence claims against Depp in order to create an impression that Pres. Trump has somehow made the nation worse.
“If she feels comfortable, she can interweave her personal story, saying how painful it is, as a GBV [gender-based violence] survivor to witness these setbacks.”
Here is a video presentation from a public school system bragging about LGBTQ+ Books for School Libraries and Classrooms. They specifically recommend books for all grades, K-12. They say that California law not only protects teachers doing LGBTQ+ instruction, it is required.
I think that the LGBTQ+ lobby has gone too far. They are using public money to groom small children for perverted activities. It is sick and dishonest and destructive.
