Bette Midler sparks backlash for attacking tweets over blanket language

Bette Midler sparks backlash for attacking tweets over blanket language

Pete Midler Fans and social media users were disappointed on Monday after a controversial tweet attacking lingo was posted.

“Women of the world! We are being stripped of our rights over our bodies, our lives, and even our names!” a “Hocus Pocus” representative tweeted.

“They no longer call us ‘women’; they call us ‘birth people’ or ‘menstruating people’, and even ‘people who have vaginas’! Don’t let them erase you! Every human on earth owes you!”

Some people use terms such as “pregnant women” instead of “pregnant women” to acknowledge that transgender and non-binary people who do not identify as women can also become pregnant and give birth.

Inclusive language is a way of recognizing and respecting the diverse ways in which people express their gender and sexuality. Advocacy groups and other proponents of the inclusive language of pregnancy argue that it does not exclude women from recognizing all people who can become pregnant. Critics have derided it as another tool in culture waron the pretext that it reduces or erases women.

Celebrated as a gay icon, Midler divided Twitter users with her tweet, drawing a backlash from the LGBTQ+ community and its allies.

Another Twitter user, who identified herself as a fan, said it was “heartbreaking” to see Midler’s opinion.

“The goal of the anti-choice movement is to try to control people’s bodies assigned to females at birth, including transgender men, and to impose gender identities and gender roles on *all* of us.”

Colin Munro Seymour, a competitor on the first season of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK under his stage name, Crystal, noted that “the fight for women’s rights includes trans people – trans rights don’t undermine women’s rights.”

“We are all fighting this together and this fleeting rhetoric of exclusion does nothing to help this,” he wrote.
