"No - those aren't women, they're birthing individuals!!! Why are you such bigots?!?!?"

People with uteruses.

Hmmm. I usually go with the classical plural for latin based terms, but I have certainly seen both. OED gives both plurals as acceptable.

But I appreciate the comment. I used to do a lot of proofreading. Reddit can be painful sometimes.

In this sense it's more of a descriptor than a plural. Almost everyone has either 1 or 0.

I suppose I would be more proper to say "People with a uterus."

I actually wasn't sure that was even an option. 😁

Sure, I'm a grammar nazi. If a word is based in latin and ends in -us it is usually plural as -i. Radius/radii, Cactus/Cacti, etc. Except when it's not. We usually don't say a university with multiple locations has campi, or that a group of naked men are showing their ani.

That particular "women's history month" video was put together by a woman, so...

Just kidding, the Toronto Raptors offices don't hire women.

Congrats to women for birthing everybody!

Sooo is this on this sub because it’s so stupid they made that video or because you think it’s weird that they apologized?

Women hate hearing about birthing babies. They would love to have kids but they hate society's NEED to get to birthing babies.


[deleted] t1_jaszqkv wrote

Crazy that they had to apologize for stating a fact.


RobertusesReddit t1_jatj1q0 wrote

Some politicize the act of birthing, some feel propagandized to birth babies. Either way, women do other than birth.


[deleted] t1_jati35y wrote

Having babies will be canceled in one or two generations 😂


LittleKitty235 t1_jaxl8j9 wrote

Not sure if a few generations we very well could be growing babies in labs al la 'Brave New World'

The thing is if you weren’t born a female you didn’t have to deal with people treating your biological capabilities as gross or inferior. And it would also be offensive to that crowd if we made a space for females specifically to be celebrated for the things that ultimately connect us in society. As a women who works a hard job, who doesn’t ask for help and hasn’t since I left home as a teen, it isn’t the clothes and make up that dictates my gender. It’s something I didn’t ask for and now in the process I feel excluded from spaces that see females as what they are which is simply females. No choice involved

Why do they find this offensive !!! when someone honored them for the hardships they go through when pregnant


Welpmart t1_jaxbs1i wrote

Because women have historically been reduced to popping out babies and prevented from doing other things, sometimes expressly because it was thought to damage their ability to have kids. Pretty tone deaf to not take that into account.


TareQ_X t1_jb02fz4 wrote

i'm not tone deaf, but I just feel that everyone is easily offended lately, including you from what I see.

Indeed, we should also stop that offensive maternity leave, cause it's sexist and the idiot doctors said it might damage their ability to have natural healthy delivery and baby.

So we shouldn’t thank women for carrying and giving birth to society?
