OUTRAGE as University Erases The Word Woman From Maternity Menopause Policies

A London University received backlash after it decided to remove the word ‘woman’ from its maternity policy, declaring “maternity” and “menopause” applied to “all genders.”

The University of the Arts London (UAL) was slammed by free speech campaigners and MPs, accusing it of’ erasing’ women’s experience.

In a LinkedIn post from October 2022, University of the Arts London Vice Chancellor James Purnell wrote, “At UAL, we are introducing equal parental leave. Every new parent will be entitled to six months at full pay,” adding, “It is fair to every kind of parent, of whatever gender or sex, or sexual orientation, whether adopting or not.”

In another press release, the University said its maternity and menopause policies are “irrespective of gender, sexual orientation or how people become parents,” in what appears to be them justifyng removing the word woman.””

The policy itself states, “We wish to affirm in our use of language in this letter that not all pregnant people are women and thereby acknowledge trans, non-binary, gender-queer and gender fluid pregnant people and parents.”

The University also notes that it “may also be experienced by colleagues who do not identify as female.”

“UAL recognizes that menopause may also be experienced by colleagues who do not identify as female, so this guidance and support content is intended to support anyone experiencing menopause, regardless of their gender identity,” the university asserts.

Conservative MP Jonathan Gullis slammed UAL for abandoning “basic biology.”

“It is disturbing that a university does not understand the basics of biology… I hope [it] will stop this pathetic woke nonsense,” Gullis commented.

Meanwhile, the think tank Free Speech Union director, Toby Young, said the university “has become so pickled in woke gobbledegook it’s becoming a bit of a joke. I hope it can correct course before it goes bankrupt.”

“Nearly all these institutions are publicly funded, yet all the polling indicates the public are overwhelmingly opposed to this nonsense,” Young added.

Earlier this year, Britain’s National Health Service was accused of ‘erasing’ women after removing all references to women from an online advice section about menopause.

It also removed guidance pages on ovarian cancer, removing instances of the word “women” to be more “inclusive” toward trans, non-binary, and intersex people.

But the move was met with backlash after a letter signed by over 6,000 people was sent to the NHS, calling for an end to the “underhand” removal of the word’ woman or women’ in favor of gender-neutral terminology.

As The Scottish Daily Express reported:

It demands that phrases like “mensurating person” and “those with a cervix” be adjusted to “women” in order to prioritize the sex-based care biological females need to access.

Around 1,200 clinicians added their signatures to the letter- totalling 6,300 names- arguing that vulnerable women and those whose English is not their first language are at risk of being left out of initiatives aimed at improving access to vital services.

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
