As leftists continue to peddle radical gender ideology, novelist Celeste Ng has claimed that "women are a subset of birthing people."
"If you don’t like inclusive language, think of it as being respectful. You’re using the terms the other person prefers, as you would w/ a nickname. If you still don’t like THAT—well, what you’re admitting is that you don’t respect the other person. Maybe think on that," Ng tweeted on Tuesday.
In another tweet, Ng wrote, "Alternatively: women are a subset of birthing people. So ask yourself if you'd still be upset about the phrase 'women and other birthing people.' If the answer is yes, then... what you're upset about isn't the 'erasure' of the word women, it's the inclusion of other groups."
In point of fact, women are the only people who can give birth because it is biologically impossible for men to bear children. However, under the dogmas of radical leftist ideology, people can have a gender identity that differs from their biological sex, which then leads to the preposterous notion that individuals other than women can get pregnant.
While Ng is promoting the gender-bending movement, many people do not want to embrace the language being pushed by the movement's adherents.
Allie Beth Stuckey, host of BlazeTV's "Relatable," responded to Ng on Wednesday by pointing out that, "Nicknames do not require me to lie. Calling a man 'she' does."
Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro responded to Ng by noting, "To change the definition of womanhood such that its key biological component is now supposedly held by those who are not women is indeed erasure."
Pollster Frank Luntz noted, "It's odd how progressives constantly compare GOP government to the Handmaiden's Tale – then insist on using words like 'birthing people' and 'uterus owners.'"
In a tweet on Wednesday, Ng declared, "Please know that if you comment on this thread—whether to argue against trans rights (which are human rights) or to argue w trolls/support trans rights (thank you, truly)—I won’t be reading it. But I will keep donating $1 to trans rights orgs on your behalf."
Bette Midler recently faced backlash on social media after tweeting on Monday, "WOMEN OF THE WORLD! We are being stripped of our rights over our bodies, our lives and even of our name! They don’t call us 'women' anymore; they call us 'birthing people' or 'menstruators', and even 'people with vaginas'! Don’t let them erase you! Every human on earth owes you!"
In an apparent response to the backlash, Midler declared on Tuesday, "There was no intention of anything exclusionary or transphobic in what I said; it wasn’t about that."
