Erasing women: CDC quietly replaces “pregnant women” with “pregnant people” in its new inclusive flu vaccine advice

Monday, November 07, 2022
by: Ethan Huff

(Natural News) For the first time, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is taking an “inclusive” approach to its annual flu shot push, urging “pregnant people” as opposed to “pregnant women” to avoid getting an influenza vaccine.
 
The word “women” was also removed from the CDC’s monkeypox advice, suggesting the federal agency is pivoting away from biology – despite being a public health agency – and straight into far-left wokeness.
 
According to reports, the CDC quietly scrubbed the word “women” from its official flu shot guidance, along with all other gender-specific terms such as “she,” “her,” and “mother.” In essence, anything that refers specifically to females is no longer present in the CDC’s official literature.
 
Now, there are a whole lot of “gender-neutral” words and pronouns in their place as women get systematically erased from government materials. (Related: Remember when the transgender mafia demanded reparations for their “suffering” as they compared themselves to actual slaves?)
 
AAPS condemns CDC for erasing women, says changes are “clearly a political move”
 
None of this is surprising when considering the perverse nature of the Biden regime, which is now fully stocked with all kinds of LGBT perverts, including cross-dressing men and trannies.
 
Biden and the people surrounding him are arguably even worse than what we saw during the Barack Hussein Obama years, which were already bad enough. Now, the Obama 2.0 regime is even worse in its quest to erase human biology.

The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) blasted the CDC for these latest changes, stating that there is “no logical scientific reason” for making these change, which are “clearly a political move.”
 
The CDC’s de-sexed agenda aims to erase male and female from the annals of everyday life. It also comes with plans to turn everyone into a genderless Baphomet image that is neither male nor female (or male and female in the same form).
 
It is perversion on steroids, and it is being mainstreamed with each passing day as America descends into a wicked shell of its former self.
 
What is also interesting about the CDC’s new verbiage changes is that they cast more confusion on an already precarious situation as pregnant women – meaning real women – are more likely than others to be hospitalized if they catch the flu.
 
If the CDC truly cared about public health, its guidance would clearly state the risks for actual men and actual women. Instead, the agency is playing far-left politics and muddying the waters with nonsensical talk about “pregnant people” and other such lunacy.
 
When it comes to issues of health, people need to know exactly what is true about their biological sex. They cannot be told that “some men can get pregnant,” or that “some women can develop testicular cancer,” which are among the other types of perverse language being mainstreamed.
 
If biology goes out the window, then so will public health. And that seems to be the direction the CDC is taking as it panders to the woke mob of LGBT lunatics who believe that there is no such thing as “male” or “female,” and that society should scrap these terms entirely.
 
“If you don’t have a uterus and you don’t have ovaries then you can’t be pregnant,” says Dr. Jane Orient, executive director of the AAPS. “There is a medical risk in misrepresenting in a physiological situation.”
 
“A person who claims to be a man but has female organs needs to have those parts of their body treated appropriately. Just as a women [claiming] to be a man does not have a prostate, a man pretending to be a woman does have a prostate.”

Disney Projected To Lose MILLIONS After Latest Woke Movie Bombs At Box Office

Bo Banks
Nov 30, 2022

Disney’s first movie with an openly gay teen protagonist is completely bombing at the box office. So much so the company is poised to lose a whopping $146 million.
 
The film titled “Strange World” grossed under $24 million in its first five days. Which is especially terrible considering the animated adventure had a budget of $180 million.
 
“For comparison sake, ‘Encanto,’ another recent Disney animated offering, earned $40.3 million over the Thanksgiving holiday in 2021,” Variety reported on Thursday, “and that was considered to be a soft result for the family film.”
 
Now, World of Reel projects the film about climate change will inevitably tank.
 
Per the outlet:
 
Deadline’s Anthony D’Alessandro is estimating that “Strange World” stands to bestow Disney with losses ranging at around $147 million. Yikes…
 
“Strange World” has received a CinemaScore rating of B, the lowest rating ever for a Disney animated feature, or at least since the rating was measured a few decades ago. Every single Disney animated film since “Beauty and the Beast” has received some form of an A, from A+ to A-…
 
…It won’t make its money back, not even close.
 
Not only were Disney fans not interested in another woke movie paired with a poor marketing campaign. But critics have also said the film in and of itself just isn’t that good.
 
For example, Metacritic critics gave “Strange World” a 65 with a user score of 2.7. 
 
And Rotten Tomatoes critics gave it a measly 71% with a 65% audience score.
 
Most unimpressed with the film have attributed this bombshell performance to the story’s overarching message. In addition to the fact there are no princesses introduced.
 
Instead, all viewers are met with are so-called “boundary-pushing” themes including a handicapped dog and various LGBTQ+ characters.
 
Regardless, none of these “historical firsts” seem to have worked in amassing viewership over the film’s opening Thanksgiving weekend.

Judge orders Kroger to pay workers unjustly fired for refusing to wear LGBT pride symbols

Saturday, November 26, 2022
by: Ramon Tomey

(Natural News) District Judge Lee Rodofsky of the Central Division of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas has ordered supermarket chain Kroger to pay two former employees unjustly fired for refusing to wear aprons with the LGBT Pride rainbow on them.
 
The plaintiffs in the case, Brenda Lawson and Trudy Rickerd, worked in the grocery’s Conway, Arkansas location.
 
Rodofsky, who was appointed by former President Donald Trump in July 2019, ordered the supermarket chain to pay $180,000 to the two plaintiffs and “provide reasonable accommodations to employees who have sincere religious objections to Kroger’s dress code.” Rodofsky also ordered Kroger to create a religious accommodation policy and new employee training.
 
The magistrate noted in his ruling that both Rickerd and Lawson “have sincerely held religious beliefs that homosexuality is a sin and that they cannot support or promote it.”
 
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) confirmed the settlement in an Oct. 27 press release. The EEOC filed a religious discrimination lawsuit against the grocery chain on behalf of the two plaintiffs in September 2020 following their termination.
 
The lawsuit accused Kroger of “religious discrimination when it disciplined and ultimately fired [the plaintiffs] for refusing to wear an apron with the company’s ‘Our Promise’ symbol, because they believed it represented support for the LGBT community.”
 
Moreover, the complaint said Kroger “refused to consider Lawson’s request for a religious accommodation for her sincerely held religious belief.” (Related: Faith over pride: Christian soccer player chooses to sit out match rather than wear LGBT PRIDE jersey.)

The complaint sought backpay and punitive damages for the two plaintiffs, alongside a demand for Kroger to “institute and carry out policies, practices, and programs which provide equal employment opportunities.”
 
Pro-liberty judges siding with plaintiffs who hold sincere religious beliefs
 
Prior to the EEOC filing a lawsuit, the parties first attempted “to reach a voluntary pre-litigation settlement through its conciliation process.” When this fell through, the commission decided to push forward with the complaint.
 
“The parties decided to resolve the case with a consent decree to avoid additional costs and uncertainties of future litigation,” the press release noted.
 
Faye A. Williams, regional attorney of the EEOC’s Memphis District Office, lauded the outcome of the suit. Her office has jurisdiction over Arkansas, Tennessee and certain parts of Mississippi.
 
“The EEOC commends Kroger on its decision to create a policy describing the process for requesting a religious accommodation,” she said. “This policy will provide guidelines for requesting religious accommodation. The parties in this case worked in good faith to resolve this matter, and the [EEOC] is pleased with the resolution.”
 
Rodofsky’s decision to side with the plaintiffs who hold sincere religious beliefs mirrored a similar scenario in Virginia. Back in June 2021, another magistrate ordered the reinstatement of a teacher who was fired for refusing to call students by their “preferred pronouns.”
 
Judge James E. Plowman Jr. of the 20th District Court of Virginia ruled in favor of Byron “Tanner” Cross and granted an injunction he sought through a June 8 decision. The Loudoun County School Board terminated Cross and banned him from visiting school property after he made comments that refused to affirm transgenderism. He then challenged this in court, arguing that the school board was penalizing him for exercising his First Amendment rights.
 
Noting that the plaintiff’s rights to free speech and religious freedom played a key role in the case, Plowman wrote that Cross’ remarks are protected under the First Amendment because he spoke “as a citizen” on a “matter of public concern.” Moreover, the magistrate noted that the school board failed to prove that the comments made by Cross caused any significant di

Why are they allowing or requiring anything on their clothing  other than name or logo?

Because they're woke and forcing/pushing the LGBTQ+ apparel on all employees regardless of whether they object for religious reasons!

Because they want to lose their best workers and then market share, and tank their value, and ultimately fold.
