(LifeSiteNews) — The latest erasure of women is drawing outrage from feminists who must surely be feeling beleaguered at this point.
The MailOnline has reported that the terms “women” and “girls” have been removed from more government websites, this time from a Welsh government website presenting a guide on menstruation. Instead of referring to women, the Welsh government site instead refers to its target audience as “half the population” (which half?) and, even more confusingly, “young people who bleed.”
This is just the latest example. We’ve been tracking the slow elimination of terms like “women” and “girls” in this space for several years now; the Daily Mail is one of the few media outlets willing to actually dig for these stories. U.K. government websites have eliminated women from websites dedicated to uniquely female health issues such as womb cancer, menopause, and breastfeeding (which, as you may know, is now “chest-feeding.”)
The Mail felt compelled to point out that these changes don’t even make sense is some twisted, trans-ideological way: “Menstruation is a process unique to biological females and a man cannot have one, even if they transition to become a woman later in life.”
The website “Bloody Brilliant,” set up by NHS Wales, was intended to empower…well, girls and women presumably. But “medics and campaigners” are livid that “half the population” has been reduced to terms like “young people who bleed” on a website that aims “to break the taboo around periods by encouraging conversation.”
Despite the range of information on “Bloody Brilliant,” the online guide does not mention women or girls a single time. The closest they get is “anyone with a uterus.”
The Department of Justice (DOJ) has officially crossed a line by weaponizing the FBI to target America’s most influential conservative leader — former president Donald Trump, a private citizen — without due process and with obvious political bias.
SIGN this petition to FBI Director Christopher Wray - condemn this blatant political policing againt former President Trump.
This single act has sent an unmistakable signal that anyone who holds a dissenting political belief from the leftist regime can have his or her life ruined by the Deep State — forcing them to defend themselves from a faceless FBI attack-arm of the federal government.
The FBI just proved that Donald Trump was right. He’s always been right.— Benny Johnson 🍊 (@bennyjohnson) August 9, 2022
No one will ever forget this.
We cannot stand for the complete corruption and weaponization of America's law enforcement, and especially not the FBI. We must stand united, bold, and patriotic — in the name of liberty, the rule of law, and American Greatness.
SEND A BOLD MESSAGE TODAY: WE ABSOLUTELY CONDEMN THE DESPICABLE FBI RAID ON A PRIVATE AMERICAN CITIZEN — AND WE WILL NOT STOP FIGHTING FOR AMERICA FIRST!
This kind of weaponization of federal agencies against private citizens who hold a dissenting worldview is seen only in third-world countries.
This is exactly why Americans must use their voices and shout even more loudly that this country is worth saving from the ideologues on the radical left who care only about power and control.
We won’t know how fully insane the FBI raid on Trump is until we see the warrant and warrant application. But after Russiagate – years of investigation predicated largely on Clinton campaign misinformation -- if the basis for this isn’t bedrock-solid, there should be hell to pay.— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) August 9, 2022

American patriots will continue standing in the way of the left's attempt at hostile takeover, and will always defend America from her enemies — both foreign and domestic.
SIGN NOW: Our Founding Fathers added their names to the Declaration of Independence, and now more than ever is it important to add your name to the growing list of patriots who uphold our inalienable rights and the promise of self-government.
The @FBI raid on President Trump was approved by Director Wray, who also claimed that the illegal FISA warrants used to spy on Trump were constitutional.— Rand Paul (@RandPaul) August 9, 2022
Today’s raid is outrageous and unjust, but predictable.
Stand up against the targeting of private American citizens from FBI raids - we refuse to back down!
P.S. — Nobody is safe from politically motivated attacks under the current DOJ. And with 87,000 new IRS agents joining the executive branch, the unaccountable federal government is only growing. Now is the time to push back before it’s too late! SIGN NOW AND STAND STRONG TOGETHER!
After todays raid on Mar A Lago what do you think the left plans to use those 87,000 new IRS agents for?— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) August 9, 2022
Dr. Karleen Gribble, a nursing and midwifery expert from Western Sydney University, was scathing in her response, telling the Mail:
It seems like we have gone from menstruation being unmentionable, contributing to much distress and difficulty for many young girls around their period, to the fact that it is girls and women who have periods being unmentionable. Neither of these things are good. It’s entirely possible that this lack of clarity about just who it is who gets periods could be confusing for many young girls.
As far as Gribble is concerned, these new changes were another step in the NHS campaign to erase women entirely.
“Imagine how much effort it must have taken to create an entire website about periods without mentioning the word woman or girl once,” she noted. “It is certainly confusing to be described as a ‘person who bleeds across Wales’ in particular if you are young, have low literacy, or English as a second language. It is also playing along with an ideology that I think people are coming to realise is actually harming children – by reinforcing the idea that there is no such thing as biological sex. I know this website does not overtly state that, but it is still very much entrenched in gender ideology.”
The NHS Wales Health Collaborative responded by stating that the wording they have utilized is “consistent with similar materials, including Welsh Government publications, and following expert advice and consultation with young people in Wales.”
That, of course, is precisely why women’s rights activists are so concerned—because this is not an isolated incident of a few woke government employees run amok. It is, rather, just the latest example of a wholesale change in language in which terms like “women” and “girls” and “female” are eliminated in favor of broad, vague, de-sexed terms to appease trans activists.
These changes are being made quietly. If media outlets like the Daily Mail were not perusing these sites and reporting on the changes, the transition would take place largely outside the limelight without any pushback.
As the Mail points out, those writing this material are utterly serious and without irony—on the website referring to girls as “young people who bleed,” they also call for eliminating stigma by using blunt and forceful language: “No more hiding, covering up or awkward euphemisms, we need some straight-talking.”
