A woman complained that the term "menstruators" and "people with vaginas" stripped her of her name.
On Monday, Bette Midler allegedly robbed cis women of their identities by expressing her opinion about trans-inclusive language.
It is becoming increasingly difficult to control our bodies, our lives, and even our names.
Don't let them erase you. Everyone on earth owes us. From birthing people to menstruators, to people with vaginas, they call us 'women.'
Transgender and nonbinary people are also affected by reproductive care issues by the term "pregnant or menstruating people".
Inclusion language should not be used to erase women. It should be extended to women who need abortion care.
She said, "I'm going to say this, and everyone's gonna hate me, but as a woman, we shouldn't change our body parts in order to be women, sorry."
Although Gray's statements sparked a fair amount of backlash, they also secured a high-profile new supporter.
She filed a complaint against the use of trans-inclusive words in a post-COVID-19 article in June 2020.
