(Sorry link is to the DF)...
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5006011/Ministers-call-treaty-use-term-pregnant-people.html

Headline reads as follows...
Ministers call for UN treaty to use term 'pregnant people' to avoid discriminating against trans parents.

Only a person who is biologically female can be pregnant. Yes in some very rare cases there will be people who are biologically female who identify as male who become pregnant but how often is this likely to happen? Surely there are more pressing things for our politicians to worry about.

Of course it's ridiculous

It's stupid. Very stupid. Very soon we will all be known as 'entities'

Ffs, spell checking? Really?

YABU (and ridiculous) to link to the Fail.

Ffs I'm so fucking fed up of this never ending misogyny. Just when you think you are starting to get anywhere near equality this shit starts happening.

This article was also in today's Sunday Times. Only 2 'transwomen' have ever been pregnant.

This will make me so angry I'd if this is change.
I am all for trangender people being who they truly feel they are.
But it's just a biological fact that only a woman can grow a baby in her womb.
