Sarah Sanders signs Executive Order to ban “woke” and “anti-women” words from state documents

“Today, we’re taking a stand against woke nonsense,” she declared.”

The Huffington Post reports that Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Governor of Arkansas and former Press Secretary to Donald Trump, has banned “woke” words from state documents. She gives the replacement terms which must now be used stating that many woke word are “anti-women.”

Here are the forbidden terms and their now-mandatory replacements, per the order:

  • a. Rather than “pregnant people” or “pregnant person,” use “pregnant women” or “pregnant mom.” 
  • b. Rather than “chestfeeding,” use “breastfeeding.” 
  • c. Rather than “body fed” or “person fed,” use “breast fed.”
  • d. Rather than “human milk,” use “breast milk.”
  • e. Rather than “birthing person,” use “birth mom.”
  • f. Rather than “laboring person,” use “birth mom.”
  • g. Rather than “menstruating person” or “menstruating people,” use “woman” or “women.”
  • h. Rather than “birth-giver,” use “woman.”
  • i. Rather than “womxn” or “womyn,” use “woman.”

Per HuffPo, “Gender-neutral terms for childbearing have emerged to accommodate transgender and nonbinary people in the process. The ACLU called the ban “divisive” and an attempt to “erase” marginalized groups, CBS affiliate THV11 reported. “When we go down this road where we use language to drive exclusion, that exclusion can have horrible outcomes that could generate hate,” Joe Johnson of Central Arkansas Pride told KARK.”
