Sexist definition woman

Large organizations and a large number of Western politicians and even famous dictionaries such as Oxford or Merriem-Webster, have begun to change the definition of the word ‘woman’, as well as its use in their daily dialogue and rhetoric.

This movement started a long time ago, but it has become even more evident recently especially after the overthrow of the abortion law with the Roe vs. Wade case – the catalyst for a heated debate between the supporters of the right to abortion and those who support the right of the fetus To live.

Since then, these organizations, especially those leading the abortion rights movement, have shifted the focus of their messages to be more accepting and inclusive of LGBTQ+ people.

The debate is mainly focused on the dilemma of whether gender-neutral language – such as pregnant people should be used instead of pregnant woman and breastfeeding instead of breastfeeding – should be used to protect the rights of LGBT people and especially transgender people, in so that they feel included in the gender category with which they have chosen to identify without having to be stigmatized.

Some of the language changes that replace the word woman are:
‘Menstruating people’ or ‘menstruating people’ or ‘people giving birth’ instead of ‘woman’ – because transgender women don’t have periods/cannot give birth but want to be identified and treated as women and because transgender men can too periods but do not want to be considered women.
‘Breast feeding’ instead of ‘breasts’ – as transgender men can also give birth to children and give them milk but they don’t have breasts.

A number of major abortion rights and civil rights groups in the US, including Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union, and some Democratic lawmakers have shifted their messaging in this way to be more inclusive of the LGBTQ+ community. as a growing number of Americans now identify as transgender and non-binary.

Even the National Education Association—the nation’s largest public school teachers union—recently proposed changing the word “mother” to “birth parent” in employment contracts.

While abortion rights activism has intensified in recent weeks following the Supreme Court’s landmark decision last month to overturn Roe v. Wade — the landmark 1973 decision that guaranteed every American citizen’s constitutional right to have an abortion — some women cisgender people – meaning women born female – have noticed these language changes, and not all of them are happy.

“The noble purpose behind the replacement of the word ‘woman’ is being done only to make room for the relatively small number of transgender men and people who identify as non-binary who retain aspects of the biological function of female and may become pregnant, give birth, or breastfeed,” wrote New York Times reporter Pamela Paul. “But despite the spirit of inclusion, the real result of all this has been to push women aside.”

The next day, actress Bette Midler made an international splash when she tweeted that: “WOMEN OF THE WORLD! We are being stripped of our rights over our bodies, our lives, and even our names! They don’t call us ‘women’ anymore; they call us ‘people who give birth’ or ‘menstruators’, even ‘people with vaginas’! Don’t let them wipe you out! Everyone on earth owes you!”

It remains to be seen if this debate will find a solution in the end, if it will remain a mere semantic dilemma or if these practices will one day be mandated and become unbreakable regulations, in every corner of the world.
