CBC has a new name for biological women. Get ready, girls. We are “menstruators” now.
Today’s dose of CBC insanity was buried deep inside an article about a rainbow tide of brightly colored plastic tampon applicators turning up on lakeshores, riverbanks and sewage settling ponds in some areas of Canada - most notably BC and Lake Ontario.
Here's the headline from the CBC:
“Environmentalists push for plastic tampon applicators to be included in federal plastics ban.”
While the Ceeb’s article is less about problematic plastic and more about idiotic people who flush foreign objects down the toilet, it also was about how painfully politically correct the CBC has become. The Mothercorp is now policing the quotes of their interviewees for wrongthink before publishing.
In this insufferable tampon story, CBC talks to a Terrace, BC, local Jude Haydock, who says “she's found dozens of plastic tampon applicators in a settling pond in her hometown that have ended up there because people are flushing them down the toilet.”
Later on in the article, Haydock tries to give a reason for why she thinks women are flushing them.
“[Menstruators] don't want to put these things in the garbage when their brothers and fathers and boyfriends open the trash can.”
Menstruators? No one talks like this. And no one did.
CBC added that word — menstruators. The hard brackets placed around the word in the story mean it’s the word CBC is using in place of what Haydock actually said.
CBC censored a woman who uttered either the word “women” or “girls” or “females” and replaced it with the hideous noun “menstruators”. CBC wrote 50% of the human population out of common English parlance to avoid offending some hypersensitive busy-body.
What will CBC call men? Peoplekind with penises?
