Medical Academy Calls Mothers ‘Human Milk-Feeding Individuals’

The Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine introduces its new “lactation-related language.”

QUICK FACTS:
  • The Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine (ABM) published new guidelines introducing “lactation-related language” such as “human milk feeding,” reports The Daily Wire.
  • “ABM recognizes that not all people who give birth and lactate identify as female and that some individuals identify as neither female nor male,” the guidelines read.
  • Other guidelines ask doctors to use “desexed or gender-inclusive language” such as “lactating person” instead of “mother,” The Daily Wire also notes.
  • The word “humankind” is recommended over “mankind.”
WHAT CRITICS ARE SAYING:
  • “We’re done. We can wrap our civilization up now. This is where future archeologists will say we passed beyond the event horizon of the woke black hole that is consuming us all,” writes conservative media outlet Not The Bee.
  • “They did it. They actually did it. The Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine has found a way to one-up the dehumanizing term ‘birthing people’ with … I can hardly type it … “human milk-feeding individuals.'”
  • “You know, my legally-attached human milk-feeding individual (formerly called ‘wife’) has experienced what it’s like to chest-feed three legally-unabortable 4th-trimester fetuses as a lactating person,” they go on to say.
  • “Did you like that sentence? Because that’s how we’ll all be expected to talk by the year 2030 unless we tell these dumb dumbs we’re not playing their Marxist language games!”
BACKGROUND:
  • The Daily Wire reports The National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) has been among the loudest organizations pushing for progressive language changes.
  • NARAL claims that the term “mother” was specifically gendered and that “it’s not just cis-gender women that can get pregnant and give birth.”
