"Inclusive language in specific medical contexts"....yeah, rigghhht!🙄

And, of course, those contexts are where women most frequently come together to have female health concerns addressed.

And, I'm sorry, male-identifying females, if you find such labels as "menstruator," "chest feeder," "womb carrier," "cervix haver" and "bleeder" more welcoming, less female than the label "woman," then I don't want to be included in any mutual health care systems that might serve us both.

Inclusive? Not of me and my dignity or humanity.

One does have to wonder...these "more inclusive" atomizing, dehumanizing, and even disgusting terms almost seem to have been chosen to create division between women and male-identifying females. I would have been okay with a less toxic choice (replacing "women's health" with "gynecological health," for instance), providing the trans lobby paid for such a neutral change, not my taxes. But these terms are just god-awful. Who came up with them? I WANT NAMES! Who decided that the group formerly known universally as women should, henceforth, be called "bodies with vaginas" or "bleeders"?

Because it's a real strategic move. It infuriates women who know that they are women, and lessens the possibility of connection with male-identifying females during times of vulnerability: when both sets of females are giving birth or undergoing treatment for serious female problems.

Sex is distinct from gender ID! But also, in the medical context where sex is most relevant, you’re forbidden from stating in plain language the phrases “women”, “female”, or even the capitulation “biological women”!

I think it’s also worthy to point out the strategy or accident of choice paralysis in these language games. While you’re busy fretting your head over which euphemism for women you’re going to use today, you’re being successfully distracted from more pressing matters like whatever the fuck women are actually trying to find urgent solutions to, please. TRAs Pavlov’d women into tying the shoelaces of both feet together and exalting it as progress.
