The National Public Radio social media account was mocked mercilessly for using the transgender-friendly phrase “people who menstruate” instead of “women.”
NPR posted the tweet on Monday covering an article about the shortages of feminine hygiene products for women.
“Tampons, a necessity for many, are becoming harder and harder to find,” read the tweet.
“People who menstruate are saying it’s hard to find tampons on store shelves across the U.S. right now, as supply chain upsets reach the feminine care aisle,” it added.
The report said that women across the country were finding a shortage of feminine hygiene products at markets due to supply chain issues, labor shortages, and transportation bottlenecks. Critics of the news outlet however, mocked it for using politically correct phrases.
“Progressive feminism means women are reduced to bodily functions,” responded Christina Pushaw, the spokesperson for Gov. Ron DeSantis.
“Only women menstruate. Only women have ovaries. Only women have a uterus. Only women get pregnant. Only women birth children. Stop erasing women with your inclusive language,” replied commentator Nicole Russell.
“If you’re a man and you menstruate, where are you putting the tampon? This is a serious question and I want a serious answer,” read one very popular response.
“NPR calls women ‘people who menstruate.’ These people are stupid and SO anti-woman,” replied commentator Mollie Hemingway.
“‘People who menstruate’ Anyone still want to deny that taxpayer-funded @NPR is far Left?” one user wrote.
“We’re called women.” another added.
