cis woman fail

January 15, 2010 § Leave a comment

i have been using the word-woman- when talking about pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, abortions, miscarriage and a lot of reproductive health issues. i apologize. i have realized that doing so is super cis-privilege.  in that not all people who get pregnant, give birth, breastfeed, miscarry, etc. are women.  some are gender queer, some are men, some are intersex, some identify with genders im not familiar with. and some dont identify with a gender at all.
