We’ve written before about demands that biological women be described not as women but as “menstruators,” “birthing people,” “vulva owners,” “people who bleed,” or “people who get pregnant and bleed.” In March, ABC News did a report on “pregnant and breastfeeding people,” but slipped up in its story and described them as “pregnant women.” CBS News is on board and has a report on how pregnant people are recommended to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

Why are you marginalizing women by refusing to call them women?

It’s apparently a direct quote from CDC head Dr. Rochelle Walensky.

Am I the only one who feels like this term is more offensive and alienating?

Can't say the "W word" anymore?

If trans women are women, just say women.
Women. Pregnant women. Women get pregnant.
Stop with the woke phraseology. It's degrading.

That's so sad that you can't even say women.

I could have sworn there was a word for that particular class of humans that get pregnant …. what was that word again?

I do not know the future, but I do sincerely hope that this "pregnant people" brute force attack on meaning, history, culture and our fundamental respect for women, crashes and burns, so that articles such as this will one day feature only in collections of failed propaganda.

They claim they’re not trying to erase “women,” but look at how many terms they’ve come up with to replace it. Vulva owners?
