IN yet another example of the world turned upside down, UN Women, the global agency formed to advance the status of women worldwide, wants to ban words such as ‘women’ and ‘female’.
The organisation claims that sex, gender, gender identity, and gender expression exist independently of each other, referencing the ‘Genderbread Person’ – a diagram that asserts that gender identity is associated with the brain, while sex is related only to one’s genitals.
It claims that ‘diverse gender identities have always existed in every culture’, and using words such as male or female excludes ‘non-binary or intersex’ people who do not fall neatly into these categories.
It says it is absurd that while women all round the world need better education, health care, infrastructure and maternal care to improve themselves, the agency designed to achieve those aims is instead busying itself pushing for transgenderism.
So is UN Women just jumping on the virtue-signalling LGBTQ bandwagon, or is this yet another depressing and worrying step in the spread of biology-denial and stultifying wokeness? Let us know what you think.
