Liberalism today seems to be inching ever closer to earning the actual title of “mental disorder” with some of the absolutely insane things the adherents to this disturbed ideology continue to ask of society, especially when it comes to the political correctness that is rotting our country and human culture in general.
The left has asked us all to deny basic scientific fact and accept that a man can be biologically male and still “identify” as a woman, and vice versa. Yes, we’re now asked to believe that you can reject your DNA and be whatever you want to be. Talk about not living in reality. Geesh.
Well, the United Kingdom, a place many big government loving progressives look to for inspiration when looking for new and creative ways to destroy America, is taking things to the next level. They want to start referring to “pregnant women” as “pregnant people.”

A 1976 civil rights covenant in the United Kingdom is in dire need of a vocabulary update, according to British officials who are discussing the language of a proposed amendment to a United Nations treaty. The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights currently lists certain protections for “pregnant women,” like being spared the death penalty. Unfortunately for the language police, “women” is now an exclusionary term.
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), wants “pregnant women” to be changed to “pregnant people” in order not to “exclude transgender people who have given birth.” A statement from the FCO read: “We requested that the UN human rights committee made it clear that the same right [to life for pregnant women] extends to pregnant transgender people.”
However, not all leftists are happy with this proposal, especially feminists, who view removing “women” as an attack on the gender. Feminist author Sarah Ditum added to the conundrum:
“This isn’t inclusion. This is making women unmentionable. Having a female body and knowing what that means for reproduction doesn’t make you ‘exclusionary’. Forcing us to decorously scrub out any reference to our sex on pain of being called bigots is an insult.”
Feminists made similar complaints against the UK’s Office of National Statistics which wanted to remove the male/female gender options from the next census as to not upset transgender people.
Oh but the nuttiness does not end there. UK Prime Minister Theresa May has recently announced plans to change the Gender Recognition Act so people can self-certify their gender. This will then enable those born biologically male to have access to the women’s ward at hospitals, female prisons, bathrooms, changing rooms, and even competitive sports.
How much more craziness needs to happen before people stop and realize how stupid this all is? You cannot be biologically male and say you’re a woman. That defies the laws of logic and nature. It’s ridiculous anyone is even having this conversation.
Our grandchildren and great grandchildren are going to look back in embarrassment at us for even entertaining such an insane notion. The lack of common sense and human decency involved in the transgender debate is appalling.
