Happy Mother’s Day

It is Mother’s Day, and a Happy Mother’s Day to all of our readers who have borne and been blessed with children. It may not be much of a point, but I am always pleased to see the spelling as Mother’s Day and not Mothers’ Day.

I am not going to wish anyone an HBPD – I am not even willing to print the words out in full. But I will bring it to your attention via this post from Instapundit. My only criticism of what follows is that there is nowhere enough emphasis on how mentally ill, sick and depraved one has to be to follow along with any of this.

Rep. Cori Bush referred to mothers as “birthing people.” This elicited immediate, and deserved, mockery from many folks on the right, including yours truly. NARAL—or, at least, NARAL’s Twitter person—rallied to her cause.

Birthing-person-of-pearl! (Or for those of a certain faith, Holy Birthing Person of God!) This is a seamless disco ball of absurdity, radiating inanity from every angle. If one of the core tenets of the new Great Awokening is that the term “mother” is divisive or bigoted, then the Great Awokening is doomed (and deservedly so). Don’t tell me conservatives are too obsessed with silly and divisive culture war “distractions,” if in the next breath you’re going to lecture me on the need to erase the term “mother” from the English language.

Why is this not totally discrediting to the left? How can anyone line up with such nutters? There are, no doubt, various social problems that need to be examined. This is not one of them.

    ‘Birthing people,’ eh?

    A most felicitous ‘Berthing Day’ worldwide to all former and current Stevedores, Shiphands, Deckhands, Helmspersons, Pilots, Tugboat Operators, Navigators, Engineers, Shipwrights [and -wrongs], Naval Architects and assorted Civil and Military Mariners of the Cat, and in the Meatspace…

    Fantastic start to Mothers Day . The songs that beguile down memory lane via utube. I never realized just how good were the Highwaymen and Ghost Riders.

    We are way into the Soviet territory of making us utter falsehoods to keep our jobs. The idea is to demoralise us, to break us. The left is in complete charge and by my calculations it takes three generations, or 70 years, to shake it off.

    Maybe we should rename “Labour Day as: “Stupid Person Day”?

    Labor(sic) – It’s like Mensa for stupid People.

    Does this mean we can start up more Obama family conspiracies?

  11. Tom says:

    Political correctness is language fascism designed by fascists to control what you are allowed to say to try to control what you are thinking.

    It is the opposite of freedom.

    It is the scourge of humanity.

    Trying to stop people calling their mothers their mother is not just fascism, it is, as Steve says, mental illness.

  12. Peter says:

    Great thoughts, thank you. But why the preference for Mother’s Day rather than Mothers’ Day? There is more than one mother, so surely Mothers’ Day is correct.

  13. Blair says:

    The term mother is not cis-gender neutral? A transman can be a mother if he has a sexual relationship with a man (but not a transman) or uses a donor.

  14. Dot says:

    Happy Gestator’s Day, my gender neutral birthing kins!

    Indeed it is so Soviet. Keep your mouth shut but never forget that it’s complete BS.

  16. Damon says:

    “A transman can be a mother”
    For this to be true, the ‘trans’ person would have to retain her original (unmodified) sexual anatomy, so essentially defeating the purpose of the ‘transition’. A bit of commonsense, please.

  17. H B Bear says:

    Never forget the Left hates the traditional family unit. And have done for years.

  18. David says:

    Thanks Rex Anger, that clip was great.

  19. H B Bear says:

    For those of you wondering, NARAL is the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws.

    There is a special place in Hell for people who use uncommon contractions and do not first spell them out in full. Of course, most j’ismists are going to Hell anyway.

  20. H B Bear says:

    If you knew what NARAL was please see me later for your elephant stamp. I fight the culture wars on a part-time basis.

  21. H B Bear says:

    Curiously, there are still more interesting things to do.

  22. RobK says:

    Mothers; everyone has one, not everyone can be one, that’s part of what makes them special.
    Simples.
    Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers.

    Just a thought on the Looney Left. I suspect they are just creating myths for their fantasy world of weirdness. While ever there are only 2 chromosomes everything will be as it always has been and that includes mothers.

    You have to qualify as a nutter.

    “Pregnancy is possible for transgender men who retain a functioning vagina, ovaries, and a uterus.[1][2][3] Regardless of prior hormone replacement therapy treatments, the progression of pregnancy and birthing procedures are typically the same as those of cisgender women. However, trans men who carry pregnancies are often subjected to a variety of negative social, emotional, and medical experiences, as pregnancy is regarded as an exclusively feminine or female activity”

    Are we still allowed Mums?its not mizojenee typecating ,does it offend the 56 genders? Is it raaaacist? Is it Populist and ilegal ? Does Trump approve of it ?
    The only thing left for intelligent people is to laugh at the regressive left take the piss ignore them they hate that
    ,Lack of attention really hurts .

  29. Baa Humbug says:

    Inclusive language? Bull shit. What about the weightlifter bloke who is a dad to two, who decides to win some gold medals by magically turning into a woman, a mom now no less. She didn’t give birth to the two kids, shes not a “birthing person” yet she is their new extra mom.
    By saying “happy birthing person day” you are othering this new mom.

    NARAL are evil people using exclusionary language. I’m with the World record breaking gold medalist mom. Happy Mothers Day love.

  30. Lee says:

    Despite all this Orwellian BS from the left, males will never give birth to a baby, any more than they can breast feed them.
    We are dealing with lunatics and utter morons, and dangerous ones at that.

  31. BorisG says:

    Could we have a Mother’s Day thread without politics?

  32. Blair says:

    “Despite all this Orwellian BS from the left, males will never give birth to a baby, any more than they can breast feed them.”
    Well if two grooms can legally marry each other and two brides can legally marry each other, anything goes.

    No, that’s yet another freedom lost, because the stupid leftists make everything political.

  34. IainC says:

    99.5% of people DON”T align with these nutters. Unfortunately, the 0.5% of those who do are all in positions of power or influence and dictate the narrative on this and many other batsoup crazy positions.

  35. mareeS says:

    We have had a nice Mother’s Day, thank you, Steve. We stayed at home because good restaurants are frenetic in our Newie part of Oz on most days, so we and our daughter had a nice little charcuterie lunch here in the sunroom with the cats (our son is toiling away on a shut in the Pilbara), daughter runs a defence catering facility, but did well for me today. Love your kids, they will return it in spades.

    Tell it to the dickwads who think Mothers Day is “akchually, trans exclusionary”…

  37. mh says:

    Dr. Anthony Fauci said Americans can get “close” to normal by Mother’s Day 2022, but only if the “overwhelming proportion of the population” gets vaccinated…

    In a Sunday interview on ABC’s “This Week”, Fauci explained that COVID-19 is still too scary to celebrate Mother’s Day this year, but next year society will get “close” to normal on the “condition” that most people get the COVID jab.

  38. Andre Lewis says:

    So a woman who adopts a child and raises him/her/xxx as her own cannot be called a mother nor a birthing person – so what are they?

  39. Luke73 says:

    I am ‘Centre Left’ politically and the term “non birthing people” for pregnant mothers is clearly ridiculous and insane.

    This type of fringe “woke” (I hate that term cos what does it even mean but anyway) language crap is annoying because it distracts from the actual important debates the left, centre and right should be having i.e. economic policy, national security, immigration, size and scope of Govt. etc.

  40. Luke73 says:

    Correction: meant “birthing people” for mothers is insane etc.

  41. Tator says:

    just leaving THIS here as to the absurdity of this crap as Python illustrates how stupid this crap was 40 odd years ago.

  42. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare says:

    Luke73, ideologies that you support as a leftie lead to normal women dosing themselves with testosterone to the hormonal detriment of the babies they are gestating. And they do this because they are mentally ill and believe themselves to be men when they patently are not. This is child abuse in utero, in the same way that encouraging sex switching among schoolchildren or pre-schoolers is. I was once a leftie Labor Party member and I would be prepared to argue with you on economics, but NEVER on woke sexual policies. This is the Labor movement in a morally and intellectually untenable form. It has turned fascist and tyrannical. Become a Conservative. You will feel less cognitive dissonance. And drop the term ‘gender’. There are two sexes and lots of individuals, that’s all.

  43. Luke73 says:

    Become a Conservative.

    Someone hooked me up on “one nation conservatism” the other day, have to say I liked the sound of it a lot, seems to be a path the current British Tory party are currently pursuing maybe.
