For years, radical feminists have found some of the most absurd hills upon which to die: Mansplaining, manspreading on the subway, and sexist jokes among them. Where there is a matter of ultra-trivial concern, you can bet your bottom dollar than an army of legbearded, pink-haired trolls will emerge to turn it into the top issue of the day. Just this week, they’re out in force to defend DOCTOR Jill Biden from the misogynistic attacks of a Wall Street Journal op-ed columnist who simply wanted to remind readers that Joe’s wife is not a medical doctor. Important stuff.
Strangely, though, these feminists are completely absent from the real discussion of the day: The full-scale ERASURE of women from society.
While radfems are busy reclaiming their space on the subway, leftists are working day in and day out to make the concept of womanhood so obscure and vague that it can be applied to anyone who wants it. No longer is being female a birthright; now it’s something you can simply choose on a whim. You’d think this would be of some concern to feminists who see The Patriarchy as the One True Problem of the world, but apparently they have no issue at all with men claiming womanhood for themselves and then taking control of feminist spaces.
“Globally, ethnic minority pregnant and birthing people suffer worse outcomes and experiences during and after pregnancy and childbirth,” tweeted Harvard Medical School last month.
Birthing people? Really?
We were gratified to see some pushback to this insane tweet on social media, but the fact that things have gotten so bad that “birthing people” is the preferred nomenclature used by the most prestigious university in the world is a sign that things are already too far gone.
“Reducing us to ‘birthing people’ is vile but also shows, glaringly, why women are underserved in medicine. Your contempt for us couldn’t be more apparent. We are women, and we will not be swept aside,” said one Twitter user.
After reviewing some of the pushback, Harvard responded. Not to take back the offensive term or apologize, though.
“The webinar panelists used the term ‘birthing person’ to include those who identify as non-binary or transgender because not all who give birth identify as ‘women’ or ‘girls,’” they explained. “We understand the reactions to this terminology and in no way meant for it to erase or dehumanize women.”
Buuuut…if you don’t like it, then too bad. Because “not all who give birth” are women. This, from a medical school.
Anyone know how to build an ark?
