Since the Supreme Court‘s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, more serious conversations have begun to take place about bodies of women, but these conversations touch more than just cis women.
Bette Midler has spoken out against the broadening of the term of “woman” to encompass everyone fertile enough to have a child.
Bette Midler’s remarks are consistent with those of Gray and Rowling, both of whom have been accused of transphobia for implying that women who are not cis don’t belong to the same category.
However, the support for women’s rights shown by Midler, Gray, and Rowling is not intersectional.

The “Don’t let them wipe you out, the Hocus Pocus star pleaded. The whole human race owes you something.”
Some have said that Midler promoted a “strict binary” in her work.
“Don’t believe the anti-trans fear that is all talk and no action. When it comes to history, no one is wiping out women “Panti Bliss, an Irish drag queen and advocate for LGBT rights, said. “A few of healthcare settings, where it makes sense, are using trans-inclusive terminology. To sum everything, it is everything.”
