The UK government has suggested that the term “pregnant woman” should not be used in a UN treaty because it “excludes” transgender people. However, the initiative has faced an outrage from feminists.
According to feminists, the government initiative is the latest example of “making women unmentionable” in the name of transgender equality.
The crisis between feminists and transgenders followed the UK official submission on proposed amendments to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. The treaty says that a “pregnant woman” must not be subject to the death penalty.
However, the Uk government opposes the term “pregnant woman” because it may “exclude transgender people who have given birth”. The UK suggests term is “pregnant people”.
Yet today, a major part of politicians and public figures in the “democratic” Europe is scared to say a word about rights and problems of the real majority of the Europeans.
