Nearly one in four Democratic voters believe men can get pregnant, according to a new poll.
The online survey, conducted by WPA Intelligence from August 22-25, found 22% of Democrats agreed with the statement, “Some men can get pregnant.” The percentage rose when only including women, and a whopping 36% of white, college-educated female Democrats concurred.
“Overall, few Americans think men can get pregnant,” said WPAi Managing Director Conor Maguire. “But with 36% of a core Democratic constituency (college-educated white Democratic women) and one out of five Democrat voters believing this, one can see why Democratic leaders coddle the radical gender theory movement.”
The poll underscores the Left’s growing embrace of a radical gender theory that biological sex does not dictate gender. People born female can later “identify” as men while retaining the ability to reproduce; hence the claim “men” can become pregnant. A recent Pew Research poll found that about 5% of young adults in the U.S. believe it’s possible to identify into a gender that differs from their biological sex.
The American Civil Liberties Union, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and numerous liberal media outlets, including CNN and MSNBC, are increasingly opting for terms such as “pregnant people,” or “birthing parent,” instead of “women” when referencing pregnancy, fertility and abortion.
A recent CNN article laid out the Left’s confounding new lexicon on gender, biology, and procreation.
“Some trans men and nonbinary people can also get pregnant, as can cis girls and trans boys,” wrote Harmeet Kaur, who covers culture for CNN. “This is also true in the opposite: Not all women are able to get pregnant. Some cis women struggle with fertility, while trans women lack uteruses. Opting for gender-neutral terms such as ‘people’ or ‘patients’ allows for these nuances in a way that just saying ‘women’ does not.”
Although the poll shows more and more people on the Left are buying into the new gender theory, some say referencing pregnancy outside of the context of gender is misleading.
“‘Pregnant people’ doesn’t say who we’re talking about,” Carrie Baker, a professor of the Study of Women and Gender at Smith College, told CNN. “It makes (pregnancy) sound like it’s a gender-neutral phenomenon or a sex-neutral phenomenon.”
