Abortion language excludes transgenders – ‘women’ now politically incorrect term

An MSNBC panel agreed earlier this week that to be politically correct, we should avoid using the word “women” when speaking about abortions because it excludes trans men, or female to male transexuals.

While discussing media “reaction to Caitlyn Jenner” during the June 2 airing of “All In With Chris Hayes,” Michelle Goldberg, senior contributing writer for The Nation, suggested that using the word “women” in abortion language “excludes trans men.”

Her statement was prompted by a general agreement among the panelists that younger people can more easily understand a fluid gender, one having no connection to biology.

“Well, yeah, I mean, among young people, you know. I’ve had this conversation.  I’ve written about this and they’re some conflicts especially within feminism over these issues,” Goldberg said, as a lead-n to her abortion argument.

“So a lot of the younger feminists, for example at the abortions funds,” she said, “no longer want to use the word ‘woman’ in relation to abortion because it excludes trans men.”

The general consensus among those on social media was that the MSNBC panel was nuts.

So let me get this straight. The word "women" should not be used when describing a pregnant person having an abortion because it excludes those who are biologically incapable of being pregnant?!?

I didn't know it was possible to be that stupid. Does it take special training to achieve that? Drugs? Hypnosis? Torture?

So, I guess a Vasectomy is no long a male thing?

I went to the source article and watched the video. Among other things, the woman (if I'm allowed to use that term) said this:

"…there's still a lot of, sort of, conceptual murk to, to clear away."

This is hilarious! It's only "murky" because they make it murky! Gender is assigned at conception at the sub-cellular level. Even having a highly paid and skilled surgeon remove fully functional organs does not change that simple biological fact. The only complication here (except for the rare genetic disorder) is people trying to deny simple, obvious reality and replace it with their own overly complicated fantasies.

They have now de-legitimized one of their own arguments, namely that "men" should not have a say. If being gender specific is no longer an option then neither is their argument.

I agree, 12:28 ... under their rules, I am whatever I say I am, and I say I am a member of the most protected class.

If this is the product of some university arts graduate with degree in basket weaving then is time to remove public funding for arts degrees. What PC moron came up with this idea?

So, people physically incapable of having or for that matter needing an abortions, should be offered abortions?! WTF is wrong with these idiots?

Its always a hard choice whether to get someone to blow up the abortion clinic or just to allow it to operate the way it usually does. Either outcome works for me.
