British Medical Association: “Expectant mother” offensive to trans people

David Menzies reports the British Medical Association has issued a "communication" guide instructing members to avoid the term "expectant mother" to avoid offending transgender people.


Link to the Guide:

Guide to effective communication - non-discriminatory language (2006)
This guidance, produced by the BMA Equal Opportunities Committee, aims to promote good practice in using language in an inclusive way, which shows respect for, and sensitivity towards, all members of the community. This guidance should be applied to all mediums of communication, including committee papers, documents, letters, emails and the web.

That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons of history.
~Aldous Huxley

He who has a why to live can bear almost any how. - ~Friedrich Nietzsche

Trans privilege.
The number one cause of all human poverty, misery, and death is not global warming. It’s GLOBAL LYING.
