Idiocy of the day

One in 10 women and other people with a uterus of reproductive age have the disease.

Having a reproductively useful uterus is one of those useful definitions of being a woman.

Even with someone else’s e=mail address. Excellent news. Less pageloads they get, the less advertising revenue, the sooner they’re out of business.

    Once again, The Guardian unwittingly provides the day’s comedy relief.

  3. The inevitable consequence of the JK Rowling pile-on. We’re in for a future of increasingly longwinded and clunky copy whenever genders are involved.

    If they had used females instead of women that would work, being sex and biology, as I understand this new world of humpty dumpty?

  4. “We’re in for a future of increasingly longwinded and clunky copy whenever genders are involved.”

    It’s disease, so it’s biology, so it’s sex not gender.

  5. They didn’t even have to make it so cumbersome:
    “One in 10 people with a uterus of reproductive age have the disease”
    would have worked sufficiently if they were worried about offence, and is actually more sensitive as there are probably more women who have had to have their uterus removed, than the other category,

    It’s disease, so it’s biology, so it’s sex not gender.

    Your logic is unassailable, for me. But the ugly blokes in frocks claim to experience real periods, PMT etc, and in the current climate their lunacy trumps biology and science whatever we do or say.

    Or is it that the self-hating women who’ve had their tits cut off and who insist they’re blokes still have uteri?

    What a time to be alive!

  8. philip: It’s a thoroughly unpleasant condition for those who have it, as my daughter can testify.

  9. It’s not a nice condition for uterus-owners.

    JGH: I have a million pounds set aside for any ‘ugly bloke in a frock’ who can prove he/she/it has periods and endometriosis. Otherwise, just fuck off with your mental illness.

    …women and other people with a uterus of reproductive age…

    Is The Guardian suggesting that a woman or an other person might be in possession of a uterus with an age that differs from their own age? Does mileage vary?

  11. So Much For Subtlety

    Uterus transplant? Or perhaps the Guardian is recognising not merely my right to be a woman if I want, but my right to be a twelve year old girl if I want.

    In which case parts of me may be referred to as older than twelve for medical reasons

  12. Does the author of this article know anyone, who is not a woman, yet has a uterus? Whether she does or not, we should be told, otherwise we can’t be blamed for thinking she is talking bollocks, or testicles in anyone else who is not a man.
