In Defense of Saying "Pregnant Women"

2021.10.26 09:22 JasontheHappyHusky In Defense of Saying "Pregnant Women"

Who can get pregnant? It sounds like a trick question. For centuries, English speakers have talked about “pregnant women” without a second thought, but a vocal and growing movement wants to replace that phrase with the more inclusive pregnant people. And because the United States hasn’t yet found an issue it can’t turn into a polarized debate, a partisan divide has already formed. The received wisdom is now that a good liberal should always say “pregnant people,” if only because it upsets Tucker Carlson.
I disagree. Language evolves, and inclusion for transgender people matters. But for now I will keep using pregnant women in almost all circumstances.
Pregnant people is a relatively new phrase. Google’s Ngram viewer, which trawls English-language books dating back to 1800, finds absolutely no trace of it before 1978, and a sharp spike in the past decade. It now appears in CNN headlines, Planned Parenthood advice, Washington Post columns, and CDC guidelines on COVID-19 vaccination. Its usage reflects a growing awareness that not everyone who gets pregnant defines themselves as a woman—transgender men and nonbinary people can give birth too. (Nonbinary is itself a very recent coinage; the usage examples given in Merriam-Webster’s dictionary date back only to 2015.) Using more inclusive language, the American Civil Liberties Union’s deputy legal director, Louise Melling, recently told my colleague Emma Green, “should do a fair amount of work to help address discrimination. If we talk about ‘pregnant people,’ it’s a reminder to all of us to catch ourselves when we’re sitting in the waiting room at the GYN that we’re not going to stare at the man who’s there.”
Given all the effort feminists have invested in making language more equitable, you might expect that they would welcome use of the term pregnant people. But some, including me, are concerned that it obscures the social dynamics at work in laws surrounding contraception, abortion, and maternal health. The argument for the second wave’s language changes was that women fought fires in the exact same way as men, so one word should cover both sexes. That’s a different decision from whether we should keep gendered language to reflect heavily gendered experiences. Earlier this month, the British Pregnancy Advice Service announced that it would continue to use pregnant women—while also stressing that it runs trans-inclusive services—because “from choice in childbirth to access to emergency contraception, our reproductive rights are undermined precisely because these are issues that affect women.”

2021.10.26 09:22 BurningRoast How should I make my first homebrew oneshot?

So I recently got into DnD and I always want to be the dm using my own homebrew content. For me, being a player feels somewhat restrictive, what I do can slow down the game and exactly what I do may come off as a dick move to players. I don’t feel like I fit in in players. I also don’t like doing stories that already have a premade story, it feels weird since my brain constantly wants me to make new and weird stuff, make my own adventure rather than follow one that can’t use simple words to explain the plot and let the dm explain. The premade story is very detailed and feels like it leaves very little room for the dm to make any changes.
Hence I want to try making some homebrew content since there’s also so many items and trinkets that would take me forever to know about, I want to my own stuff but there’s a few questions I would like to know (READ BELOW IF YOU JUST WANT TO HELP AND NOT LISTEN TO MY BORING BACKSTORY) 1) How should I set my monster’s hp, ac and the damage that it deals 2) How much experience is recommended before starting homebrew content 3) How much should I know about the main game before trying to make homebrew content

2021.10.26 09:22 zannnn Any issues with restoring a Time Machine from 6 months ago intel MBP to new M1 MBP? What happens to my updated iCloud files?

I broke my 2020 MBP Intel 6 months ago. I time machined a few weeks prior to breaking it. I use iCloud to backup my files. I made changes to iCloud files after the time machine.

  1. Assuming Time Machine from Intel to M1 Pro will work fine?
  2. Assuming latest iCloud files will replace the old Time Machine versions?
Thanks!
