People with uteri need all of you to get out & vote. And people with uteri should vote too! Because you shouldn't have to have be one of #HerschelWalkergirlfriends to get access to reproductive health care.

Oh, how times have changed.
Less than 4 months ago, Midler appeared to have a solid grasp on the definition of a woman when she took to social media to denounce woke terminology in rant about the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade.
“WOMEN OF THE WORLD!” she wrote. “We are being stripped of our rights over our bodies, our lives and even of our name! They don’t call us ‘women’ anymore; they call us ‘birthing people’ or ‘menstruators,’ and even ‘people with vaginas’! Don’t let them erase you! Every human on earth owes you!”

At the time, she was metaphorically hung by the left for being a “TERF” or Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminist and not embracing the liberal’s purportedly inclusionary view of the term women, which allows for Y chromosome holders to infiltrate the identity group and pose as women if they feel like it.
Now that she has fully embraced being a “TRA” or Trans Rights Activist as the woke left likes to call it, she was slammed for degrading women to just their body parts.
You mean women?
WOMEN. WOMEN. WOMEN.
Stop degrading us to our body parts.
We are not:
Peope with uteri
We are WOMEN.

They are called women, Bette. You used to pretend to care about their causes.

Do you mean that women who've had a hysterectomy should just stay home & not bother voting…?? (See how offensive this 'inclusive' language is?) 🙄

Bette you're a women, I'm a woman, we're not ppl with uteri. Some women have to have their uterus removed. You have rendered your message meaningless as ppl are trying to figure out what you mean. Those pushing this gender nonsense are taking away women's rights. It's regressive
