An MSNBC panel agreed earlier this week that to be politically correct, we should avoid using the word “women” when speaking about abortions because it excludes trans men, or female to male transexuals.
While discussing media “reaction to Caitlyn Jenner” during the June 2 airing of “All In With Chris Hayes,” Michelle Goldberg, senior contributing writer for The Nation, suggested that using the word “women” in abortion language “excludes trans men.”
Her statement was prompted by a general agreement among the panelists that younger people can more easily understand a fluid gender, one having no connection to biology.
“Well, yeah, I mean, among young people, you know. I’ve had this conversation. I’ve written about this and they’re some conflicts especially within feminism over these issues,” Goldberg said, as a lead-n to her abortion argument.
“So a lot of the younger feminists, for example at the abortions funds,” she said, “no longer want to use the word ‘woman’ in relation to abortion because it excludes trans men.”
The general consensus among those on social media was that the MSNBC panel was nuts.

And there is scientific evidence to back this up.
Former Johns Hopkins psychiatrist in chief Dr. Paul R. McHugh would give the MSNBC panel a huge thumbs down.
Not only does he state that changing one’s sex is “biologically impossible,” but he also considers “transgender” as a “mental disorder.”
