Corporations are erasing biological women/females from all legal documents to be more inclusive of all 200+ genders.

One Redditor wrote a lengthy post complaining that her bosses ordered her to remove all instances of women or gender-specific female procedures from company documents.

She wrote, "[T]hey want me to edit the old versions of the document in such a way that women are completely removed [from] childbirth to, and i quote" show that we are an inclusive company" and that all genders can become pregnant..."

Read the unedited post below:

"Currently my company has me working on (translating and editing) various legal documents and protocols. Contracts, business agreements, legal forms pertaining to getting company cars etc.

Most of those already had pretty gender neutral language, but most relevant here is a set of documents pertaining to asking and granting leave of absence for medical reasons.

One of these is specifically a protocol for granting leave in the case of pregnancy, childbirth, adoption and foster care.

They want me to edit the old versions of the document in such a way that women are completely removed form childbirth to, and i quote " show that we are an inclusive company" and that all genders can become pregnant and they think they should support that.

So here I am, painstakingly removing all evidence of women from this important document. Removing all mentions of "she/her/hers, mother, woman, female, vagina, uterus" and many other words specific to women. In the section on specification for women who need to pump or breastfeed I had to argue till I was blue in the face for them to let me even include the word 'breasts' ( like, what else do they want me to call that? Chestfeeding?!?)

A very brief section of this document describes exceptions that may be made to extend pregancy and childirth related leave due to medical reasons such as vaginal tearing, C-section, instable pelvic floor and other birth related, female specific issues that men could never have. I am walking among fire pits trying to keep language in this section up the the company's new "shiny and progressive" standards and to not use any language that could exclude men or [non-binary]'s.

This is literally erasing women from official documents to pander to genderweird people. I feel so icky even doing it but unfortunately i have no choice as I am only a lowly translator and in no way allowed to make decisions."
