Is the Word ‘Women’ Offensive? Some Universities Think So

Universities across the nation aren’t celebrating Women’s History Month in March, opting instead to commemorate “Womxn’s History Month.”

The Womxn’s Center for Success at the University of California, Irvine, says the term acknowledges “that gender identity exists in a sphere and one word has room for multiple gender expressions without weighing one more important than another.”

“‘Womxn’ is one of a few lexical and social phenomena, including the adoption of ‘x’ in naming gender non-conforming individuals, genderqueer folxs, two spirit people, femmes, transgender folxs, and non-binary people,” the center says.

San Jose State University announced a program for its “2022 Womxn’s Herstory Month,” including an open mic night at the student union building and a Zoom poetry workshop called “Writing Our Wellness through Love, Rage, and Healing.”

Northwest Missouri State University initially used the term “womynx” but later switched to “womxn” after their announcement was mocked on social media.

A university spokesperson said the term was “intended to promote inclusivity among students.” The events planned for the month include a “reception and recognition of Influential Womxn.”

Similarly, Rider University said it used the term “womxn” to “respect the dynamic and fluid nature of gender identity and expression and to be inclusive of all people who identify as women.”

    God did not create Man and Womxn, but Man and Woman. Woman is only offensive if it is taken out of context by trying to tie it to gender rather than sex. Our society needs to determine what these terms actually mean. When I was young, over half a century ago, female, woman, girl, ‘weaker sex’, gal, etc. all meant a biological female. Now, we have debates about every one of these words. Will it come to the point that we have to have ‘dangly’ bathrooms and ‘nondangly’ bathrooms? You have a dangly, you use one, you don’t, you use the other. Gender would not even be considered. A spokesthing for the university said the term was “intended to promote inclusivity among students.” Don’t these allegedly intelligent people realize the best way to promote inclusivity would be to accept everyone as they are, without trying to fit them into certain boxes or roles?

    I claim BS the word “women” has been around since Adam (man) and Eve (woman ).
    Get over yourself’s try to put your education to a good cause, this is a waste of time.
    STOP trying to change history, most aren’t caring for your crying. Believe it or not there are more important things to change.

    When will the “woke” actually wake up and discover that they have fallen for a huge lie? IF they could clear the cobwebs from their brains maybe they could see that what Putin et al have been pushing for years on our society, in our media, and in our “institutions of learning” is the communist/socialist agenda – and that agenda is the ultimate slavery.
    Wasting time on frivolous tripe only demonstrates that these people do not possess any intellectual ability. Just a question – are the “X” and “Y” chromosomes going to be re-designated as well. Maybe the”woke” could be designated a “zero” .

    I refuse even give any credit to that divisive question with a reply!

    What I want for Women is what Men have, and what Women used to have: a team of their own. Redefining some self-selecting group of Men as Women doesn’t give activists any authority to ignore the science of gender. Let GenderX organize themselves into as many teams as they want, but, Respect Women’s Sports!
