UK Doctors Forbidden to Call Mothers ‘Mothers’

All right–this has gone quite far enough, and it has to stop.

The British Medical Association has decreed that physicians in the UK stop using the word “mother” to denote a mother, and no longer to use the term “expectant mothers,” but to say “pregnant people” instead. These barbarities are to be inflicted on the English language so as to avoid giving offense to intensely disturbed individuals who call themselves “transgender.”

Doctors have been told to refer to expectant mothers as “pregnant people” so as not to offend transgender people, in official guidelines issued by the British Medical Association (BMA).

In a stupid pamphlet about “inclusive language in the workplace,” the BMA explained that ordinary words in use since time began are now unacceptable because they might “exclude” some “transgender man”–in plain English, a woman with a highly addled psychology–who might become pregnant and then feel bad because “he” can’t be a mother…

Just stop it.

This business comes straight from Satan’s bag of tricks and smells of fire and brimstone. “Male and female created He them” (Genesis 1:27) really throws the PC crowd: God’s created order deeply offends them.

If physicians in the United Kingdom had any self-respect, they would ignore the BMA and make a point of going out of their way to use the forbidden language as often as possible, even if they had to phone BMA bigwigs in the middle of the night just to say “mother-mother-mother-mother-mother!”

Defy political correctness!
