Politically Correct or Just Plain Stupid? Biden Wants You to Call Mothers “Birthing People”
The woke crowd loves coming up with insane ways to describe things that did not need any sort of assistance. The left loves spending months trying to make these bizarre terms into mainstream slang but it never pans out. They end up finding out that no one even cares.
Let’s take a closer look at what Ayanna Pressley had to say about the “Mommies Act”. “TODAY: @SenBooker and I re-introduced the MOMMIES Act to expand Medicaid coverage for birthing people & promote community-based, holistic approaches to maternity care. Every pregnant person should be listened to and treated with dignity and respect during and after childbirth,” she tweeted.
Cori Bush could not resist a chance to get in on the social justice parade, either. “Every day, Black birthing people and our babies die because our doctors don’t believe our pain. My children almost became a statistic. I almost became a statistic. I testified about my experience @OversightDems today. Hear us. Believe us. Because for so long, nobody has,” she said.

They have come up with the bizarre term “birthing people” because they do not wish to offend any trans men. These are the same people who came up with very grown-up phrase “Mommies Act”. Why not refer to this act as a maternity care act and avoid all of the goofy, contrived lingo?
Why not refer to “birthing people” as “people with vaginas”? This is an idea that our friends over at Hot Air came up with and we are all for it. To be fair to Pressley and Bush, they did not invent this term themselves. If you head to Google and take a look, it has already received over 70,000 hits. While it is not brand new, it is probably too niche to make very much sense to the average person.
“Globally, ethnic minority pregnant and birthing people suffer worse outcomes and experiences during and after pregnancy and childbirth. These inequities have been further highlighted by #COVID19. Watch this panel discussion on #MaternalJustice,” reads a tweet from a Harvard Med School account last fall. So, as you can see, the term has been around for a bit.
If you take a closer look at the replies to that tweet, you can see what we are saying. People do not seem to think that the terminology is any good. Of course, the Democrats will just claim that everyone who disagrees is a racist. That’s always been their go-to in these instances. Someone needs to show all of this to Tucker Carlson, as quickly as they possibly can.

We need to get his mind off the vaccines and get him to pay attention to something else. This is a topic that he could make a lot of hay with, if he is motivated to do so. If he’s properly revved up, he could probably go on for an hour or so, bare minimum. Either way, we need more conservative thinkers to take on the task of humbling the Democrats on this one. Perhaps if they are made fun of enough, they will back off on this ridiculous phrasing.
Now that Mother’s Day is right around the corner, we are certainly going to have a lot of fun with this. Are the Democrats going to make sure that they tweet about “birthing people” this weekend? That’s all we are waiting for at this point. If Bush or Pressley takes to Twitter and decides to wish all of the mothers a “Happy Birthing People Day”, we won’t be able to stop laughing for quite some time.
In fact, we just might call our own mother and offer up such a wish. She’s not as terminally online as the rest of us so she may not get it but we’ll get to enjoy a laugh anyway. As for the Democrats, we eagerly await the day when we get to laugh in their face, live and in the flesh.
