"I guess this is a bit of a vent but I really am very tired of seeing cissexist wording on abortion issues in pretty much every place that isn't explicitly a trans space. Trans men and other trans people have a hard time accessing affirming medical care already, especially gynecological care. So every time I see things like "men aren't the ones who should get the decision over whether to get an abortion" there's no way to interpret that besides directly excluding trans men. I've known men who have gotten pregnant. A couple of years ago a friend of mine had a healthy baby boy, and both of his fathers love him very much. But it's possible for us to have an unwanted pregnancy too. I have a deathly fear of pregnancy myself and hope to never become pregnant, but if it happened anyway, I would absolutely terminate it.
it's not "a woman's right to choose." it's not "a woman's health issue." it's the right to choose. it's a health issue, period."
Men can be pregnant too, British government tells United Nations"
The British government is asking the United Nations to change treaty language that refers to “pregnant woman” to instead refer to “pregnant people,” claiming the term “woman” is exclusionary to transgender men who are now or who have previously borne children, The Times of London reported Sunday.
“The statement comes in Britain’s official submission on proposed amendments to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, to which the UK has been a signatory since 1976,” The Times explained.
The newspaper noted there were just “two known cases” of children born to transgender men. The phenomenon appears to be quite rare on this side of the Atlantic as well.
In July 2008, an American transgender man named Thomas Beattie was the subject of human interests stories on the ABC network regarding his pregnancy and subsequent delivery of a baby girl. In late July 2017, Trystan Reese became the latest transgender man in the U.S. to deliver a child to term.
While transgender activists may cheer the stand taken by Prime Minister Theresa May’s Conservative government, some feminists have complained it amounts to Her Majesty’s Government looking down on the unique challenges biologically female women face."
Seems to me like an invalidation of the idea that men and women can be distinguished from each other, but maybe i'm just ignorant... what do you guys think? discuss below
