"Inclusive language" is religion, not science

By Scott Tibbs, March 6, 2023

When so-called "scientists" issued a command to their disciples that the word females should be replaced with egg producers, it became obvious (again) that many of these people are not "scientists" at all. They are cult leaders. They have abandoned science in favor of a religious cult that seeks to erase all distinctions between men and women, as well as the concept of biological sex all together.

Not all people who produce eggs are females, they say. "Trans men" produce eggs too, according to these cult leaders. Use of gendered language causes "trans men" to experience gender dysphoria and drives them to be suicidal. Blah blah blah. But none of this is an actual scientific argument. It is an effort to mutilate our language in order to advance a political and religious agenda. It is a campaign to erase speech that is "blasphemous" to the LGBTQ+ cult.

For the sake of argument, let's take on faith the premise that "trans men are men" and "trans women are women." You do not need to dehumanize biological females in order to respect and "validate the existence" of trans people. Women are much more than "egg producers." Women are much more than "vagina owners." Reducing women to body parts is dehumanizing rhetoric that erases the richness of human life. If a blogger or influencer in the misogynist "manosphere" used this language, they would be rightly excoriated for their misogyny. When so-called "scientists" do it, they are praised as trailblazers for inclusivity.

This rhetoric raises an obvious question: What do you call women who have been through menopause or who have had a hysterectomy? How do you classify women who do not produce eggs? Are they not women? Are they even human beings at all? This religious commandment makes language far more complicated than simply using the same words that have served humanity for thousands of generations instead of mutilating language to appease a tiny minority of transgender activists.

My message to these so-called "scientists" is simple: I reject your religion and your so-called "god." I will continue to proudly use blasphemous speech. I will use words like "female" and "women" to refer to women, rather than adopting your dehumanizing rhetoric that reduces women to a body part or a biological function. All of you should be ashamed of yourselves for perverting science to serve your narrow religious agenda.
