When you think of someone who can, will, may, or has gotten pregnant you think of a woman, right? A female with female parts doing female things… like GIVING BIRTH!
Well not according to government officials of the United Kingdom, nope… “person” is the correct verbiage.
In the United Nations new version of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. they used the term “pregnant women” and not “pregnant person” and the United Kingdom feels this is HIGHLY OFFENSIVE to the transgendered.
I wish I was making this crap up…
According to The United Kingdom Times, 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.
This isn’t a drill, people. This is just another version of “identity politics” — where everything has to be wrapped up for every single person’s own interest and wants. Apparently, everything has to be done single handled, one by one, to appease everyone.
You know… the government isn’t meant to be used for your every freaking whim… and how the h*ll is any government going to be so worried about THIS sorta thing when I can’t even get my local government to properly maintain roads?! Lol
“We requested that the U.N. human rights committee made it clear that the same right extends to pregnant transgender people,” a member of the U.K.’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office told the Times of India.
But not everyone in the typically progressive body is open to the change. Feminists blasted the U.K. in return, saying that the suggested change is emblematic of the systematic “disappearing” of women from the global community, and that altering the term “pregnant women” to read “pregnant people” was symbolic of a global misogyny that recognizes no innate differences between the genders, and therefore believes women deserve no special protections.
“This isn’t inclusion. This is making women unmentionable. Having a female body and knowing what that means for reproduction doesn’t make you ‘exclusionary.’ Forcing us to decorously scrub out any reference to our sex on pain of being called bigots is an insult,” said feminist author and U.N. commentator Sarah Ditum.
