Leftie Lunacy: Don’t say ‘pregnant women’, say ‘pregnant people’


This so-called Conservative administration continues its attack on women. At the weekend, it was reported that the government believes pregnant women should be referred to as ‘pregnant people’.

The government has said the term ‘pregnant woman’ should not be used in a UN treaty because it ‘excludes’ transgender people.

The statement comes in Britain’s official submission on proposed amendments to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, to which the UK has been a signatory since 1976. The UN treaty says a ‘pregnant woman’ must be protected, including not being subject to the death penalty.

Yet in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office submission, Britain opposes the term ‘pregnant woman’ because it may ‘exclude transgender people who have given birth’. The suggested term is ‘pregnant people’.

This is the kind of thing that you might expect from the Left. Sadly, the Conservative party have embraced this transgender misogyny completely, and are attempting to erase the terms ‘women’, ‘female’ and ‘girls’ from public documents and spaces for the sake of a few confused men.

It would be funny if it were not so serious.
