Birth "Coach" Spokeswoman Loses Job for Saying Only Women have Babies

 A spokeswoman for a birth-coaching group has been driven from her job by transgender activists after she asserted that only women can have babies. Lynsey McCarthy-Calvert, 45, who is an actual female, says she was “ostracized” for the social media post.

 McCarthy-Calvert, a professional doula or trained non-medical helper for moms-to-be, posted a photo on social media with the message: “I am not a ‘cervix owner’ I am not a ‘menstruator’ I am not a ‘feeling’. I am not defined by wearing a dress and lipstick. I am a woman: an adult human female.

“Women birth all the people, make up half the population, but less than a third of the seats in the House of Commons are occupied by us.”

 The post was in response to another post by Cancer Research UK, which dropped the word “women” from its pap smear test campaign, instead saying screening was “relevant for everyone aged 25-64 with a cervix.”

The seemingly obvious and inarguable post sparked fury among transgender activists.

 One user said she was using “absolutely disgusting language”, stating: “You seem to be forgetting that not only women birth children.”

 Other activists filed a complaint with the nonprofit group Doula UK, claiming her post contained “trans exclusionary comments” including the description of a woman as an “adult human female.” They said she had broken the organization’s policy that members “shouldn’t post anything that our colleagues, clients and affiliates would find offensive”.

 As a result, Doula UK sacked McCarthy-Calvert as a spokeswoman and launched a four-month investigation, which concluded that the post violated its guidelines.

They did not expel her but threatened to suspend her unless she deleted the post.

 McCarthy-Calvert has since resigned from the organization, but told MailOnline that she was “very disappointed” with its response. She added: “The leadership are paralysed by not wanting to upset transgender rights activists.

 This must have gay men upset to see the truth.

They said she had broken the organization’s policy that members “shouldn’t post anything that our colleagues, clients and affiliates would find offensive”.

Following the above guidelines would preclude any comments by its members... as there is nothing one can post that will not offend someone.  Idiots abound, dangerous idiots are holding power... we must get rid of them.

 I am truly amazed you read that before making a comment...:)

Tif...

See what reading before commenting can do...  Try it.  LOL

Gohmert: Dems Will Drag Out Impeachment — Try To Get ‘Best Socialist’ Nominated For President

During an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN on Thursday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) offered his best assessment of what House Democrats were trying to accomplish with their impeachment efforts.

Gohmert told WVNN’s “The Jeff Poor Show” impeachment could tie up the Democratic Party’s presidential campaign efforts but predicted Democrats would use the occasion to nominate “the best socialist” they can.

“They would lose in the Senate,” Gohmert said on impeachment. “And besides that, the entire time it was on trial in the Senate, the Democrats who are running for president wouldn’t be allowed to campaign. That’s in the Constitution. They wouldn’t be able to campaign. I just can’t imagine them wanting to do that because if they send it to the Senate, they have now perfectly set up the scenario of 1996, where they will reassure Donald Trump is reelected as president. They don’t want to do that. They’re probably going to drag this thing out as long as they possibly can … through Iowa, through primaries — try to get the best socialist they can to be nominated.”

“Then just end up and say, ‘Now we’re close enough to the general election. We’ve thrown mud at the president through the House,’” he continued. “What they’re really doing — they’re using taxpayer funds to campaign against Trump. That’s all this is — a campaign fund that taxpayers are paying for in order to try to throw mud at the president. I’ll be surprised if they have that vote, but I can’t imagine they want to set up this president for reelection by having a trial in the Senate where they lose.”
