Ana Kasparian, co-host of the liberal series “The Young Turks,” criticized liberals in a Wednesday tweet for using terms such as “birthing person” to describe women.

Kasparian said terms like “a person with a uterus,” “birthing person,” or “person who menstruates” is degrading to women, and that using the word “woman” is not harmful to transgender people.

“I’m a woman. Please don’t ever refer to me as a person with a uterus, birthing person, or person who menstruates. How do people not realize how degrading this is? You can support the transgender community without doing this shit,” she said.

She added that women do not want to be “minimized” to a body part.

“I’m sure a lot of women don’t want to be minimized to a bodily function or body part,” she added.

Democrats and notable liberals have attempted to replace the word “woman” with these phrases to include biological men identifying as women into the conversation. Democratic Missouri Rep. Cori Bush first coined the phrase “birthing people” to refer to women during a May 2021 oversight hearing where she criticized the treatment of black pregnant women.

Republican Missouri Rep. Jason Smith challenged Office of Management and Budget (OMB) director Shalanda Young on the Biden administration’s use of the term “birthing person” to describe a woman. Young said the administration’s language needs to be “inclusive” to biological men or women who do not identify by their sex.

“There are certain people who do not have gender identities that apply to female or male, so we think our language needs to be more inclusive in how we deal with complex issues,” Young said.
