‘Journalism is magical, not at all broken’: AP updates style guidelines on use of term ‘pregnant people’

The left’s mainstreaming of critical gender theory continues unabated, with the Associated Press updating its industry-leading style guidelines on Wednesday when using the terms “pregnant people” and “women.”

“Phrasing like pregnant people or people seeking an abortion seeks to include people who have those experiences but do not identify as women, such as transgender men and nonbinary people,” read the style guide alert. “Such phrasing should be confined to stories that specifically address the experiences of people who do not identify as women.”

The timing of the update comes as the left has been whipped into a frenzy after an unprecedented leak of an initial draft majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito showed the Supreme Court would vote to strike down the landmark decision Roe v. Wade.

Amid the pushback, politicians like California’s Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom got caught up in the insanity while trying to traverse the linguistic quagmire the left has created with their take on gender when he declared, “If men could get pregnant, this wouldn’t even be a conversation. This decision isn’t about strengthening families – it’s about extremism. It’s about control. We will fight for the right to choose.”

Speaking the same day AP acted, Newson added, “Talk to me about being pro-life. Spare me. Your body, your choice. It’s a hell of a moment to live in. But like you say, we will not be defeated. We will stand tall, we will stand firm and we will affirm the constitutional—currently constitutionally protected rights of women and girls for their reproductive rights and freedoms in California.”

Given that the left insists that a man can indeed get pregnant, Newson was reminded to “keep up with your wack job party, dude.”

The left applauded the “inclusive” language as a “good approach” that makes sense for all — who buy into their inane take on gender.

At the same time, the ridicule came hard and heavy… here’s a quick sampling of responses from Twitter:
