Term 'expectant mothers' offends Transsexuals
A World Gone Mad
Now insane Leftists demand we say "pregnant people"
(Evening Standard) - Pregnant women should not be called “expectant mothers” over fears it could upset transgender people, it was claimed.
The British Medical Association has urged for them to be known as "pregnant people" so it can include intersex or transgender men.
The advice was published in a BMA internal leaflet entitled “A guide to effective communication: inclusive language in the workplace”.
It suggests “the elderly” should be referred to as “older people”, “disabled lifts” as “accessible lifts” and someone who is "biologically male or female" known as "assigned male or female".
In the guide’s pregnancy section, it states: “Gender inequality is reflected in traditional ideas about the roles of women and men. Though they have shifted over time, the assumptions and stereotypes that underpin those ideas are often deeply rooted.
“A large majority of people that have been pregnant or have given birth identify as women. We can include intersex men and transmen who may get pregnant by saying ‘pregnant people’ instead of ‘expectant mothers’”.
The 14-page guidance, which is published online, was branded "completely ridiculous".
Conservative MP Philip Davies told the Daily Telegraph: "If you can’t call a pregnant woman an expectant mother, then what is the world coming to?"
