Democrats, the media and their ‘birthing people’ nonsense

Lies and the lying liars who advance them. Birthing people, also known as females, are always females, never males. So why the need for the phrase in the first place? This is yet the next step in the LGBTQ-and-their-enablers' quest to cripple traditional family. Published April 14, 2023
