As a serious person, Democratic Rep. Cori Bush uses serious words to make serious arguments about serious issues
Every day, Black birthing people and our babies die because our doctors don’t believe our pain. My children almost became a statistic. I almost became a statistic.
I testified about my experience @OversightDems today.

Sorry, Cori, but it’s hard to believe someone who uses a term like “birthing people” in earnest.

What the Hell are "birthing people"?

Her story is certainly a powerful one, and sadly, it likely resonates with many other mothers. But she ultimately undercuts the seriousness by busting out “birthing people.” She’s fighting for black mothers like her, but she can’t even bring herself to refer to them as women?
One of these days we really need to come up with a word for "female human." https://t.co/xIUe0bD5k5

Someone should get on that ASAP.
Women. You can say women.

Acknowledging women’s womanhood is a lot more empowering than attempting to erase it.

The word you are looking for is women.
