“Chestfeeding” and “Birthing Parent:” Staff at UK Hospital Told to Use “Trans-Friendly” Language

It’s all so tiresome.

Published

Staff members at a UK hospital have been instructed to replace terms like “mother” and “breastfeeding” with “birthing parent” and “chestfeeding.”

Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust, according to The Times, is the first hospital in Britain to “formally implement a gender inclusive language policy” for its maternity wing, which, naturally, will be renamed “perinatal services.”

The changes are not just limited to “birthing parent” and “chestfeeding.” Other changes include replacing “breastmilk” with “human milk” or “milk from the feeding mother or parent”; replacing “woman” with “woman or person”; and “father” with “parent,” “co-parent,” or “second biological parent.”

The hospital clarified in an internal policy document that staff need not eliminate all uses of the word “woman” or all phrases relating to motherhood, but to consciously use “inclusive language” in general.

Gender identity can be a source of oppression and health inequality. We are consciously using the words ‘women’ and ‘people’ together to make it clear that we are committed to working on addressing health inequalities for all those who use our services,” the document reads. “As midwives and birth workers, we focus on improving access and health outcomes for marginalised and disadvantaged groups. Women are frequently disadvantaged in healthcare, as are trans and non-binary people.”

As if that weren’t enough, the document also decries the “biological essentialism and transphobia” infecting “elements of mainstream birth narratives and discourse.”

We strive to protect our trans and non-binary service users and healthcare professionals from additional persecution as a consequence of terminology changes, recognising the significant impact this can have on psychological and emotional wellbeing.”

The city of Brighton has a much higher rate of self-identified “LGBTQ+” people than the general British populace. Citing “research,” The Times says approximately 10 percent of the Brighton population identifies as “LGBTQ+,” as opposed to 2.2 percent of the general population.

Judge Dismisses Transgender Woman’s “Discrimination” Lawsuit Against Miss USA Pageant

Miss USA remains a pageant for biological females only.

Published

Last Thursday a federal judge dismissed a transgender woman’s lawsuit that accused the Miss USA pageant of discrimination.

Anita Noelle Green is a biological male who claimed that “she” had a right to participate in the pageant’s competitions, but US District Judge Michael W. Mosman found that the law is not on “her” side.

Judge Mosman ruled that Miss United States of America LLC, a private corporation, cannot be forced to violate its mission of promoting “natural-born” females.

“I view it as an association that cannot under the Constitution be required to allow plaintiff to participate in what defendant says is a contradiction of that message,” he said.

Green competed in the 2018 Miss Montana pageant and won the 2019 Miss Earth Elite Oregon competition—but Miss USA denied “her” application. Green’s lawyer attempted to argue that the Miss USA corporation is predominately a commercial business that’s granted “minimal protection,” not a First Amendment-protected “expressive association.”

Judge Mosman, however, disagreed and found the pageant corporation to be a predominately expressive association, meaning that it is engaged in expressive activity and promotes a message.

In related news, Big League Politics recently covered Sen. Rand Paul’s confrontation with transgender HHS nominee Rachel Levine about “her” unwillingness to say that minors shouldn’t be bypassing their parents and making their own decisions about transitioning:

At Thursday’s Senate confirmation hearings, Sen. Rand Paul confronted Rachel Levine, a transgender doctor and Biden’s Assistant HHS Secretary nominee, asking if “she” supports minors overriding their parents on transitioning to the opposite sex.

Levine’s response was as follows: “Senator, transgender medicine is a very complex and nuanced field, and if confirmed to the position of Assistant Secretary of Health, I would certainly be pleased to come to your office and talk with you and your staff about the standards of care…”
