“respect[s] the dynamic and fluid nature of gender identity and expression and [is] inclusive of all people who identify as women in today’s times”
The erasure of women by the left continues apace.

Colleges throw out Women’s History Month, celebrate ‘Womxn’ instead
Colleges from California to New York are dropping the word “women” from what have traditionally been Women’s History Month celebrations in an effort to be more gender-inclusive, opting to use “womxn” instead.
John Jay College of Criminal Justice, the University of Missouri-St. Louis, California State University, San Bernardino, Rider University and Westhampton College are among the schools that have the switch.
Rider University in New Jersey justifies the move by arguing that it “respect[s] the dynamic and fluid nature of gender identity and expression and [is] inclusive of all people who identify as women in today’s times.”
California State University San Bernardino, on the other hand, asserts that it “intentionally spell[s] womxn with an X as an objection to the patriarchal idea that womxn are an extension to men and the inclusion of all womxn go beyond just cis-women.”
While many progressives are using the term “womxn” as an attempt to make the language we use to describe sex more gender-neutral, other progressives have objected to its usage. Writing for the Washington Examiner, Nicholas Clairmont documented this rift.
“It has been determined by amateur internet lexicographers that ‘womxn’ is not the preferred term any longer,” he explained. “Indeed, not only is ‘womxn’ over now, it is to be avoided and scorned, since it was ‘invented by TERFS [Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminists]’.”
Womxn’s History Month is being observed in a variety of ways at these institutions.
Rider University will be hosting an event titled “Who Runs the World? Womxn!” on March 8, followed on March 28 by a speech on how individuals can “learn about the need for collective climate action by redefining our own environmental narratives and the intersections between feminism and climate justice.”
At another event later this month, “a distinguished Rider alumna athlete will provide remarks about her/their time at the university and lessons she/they learned that have helped her/them excel in life and her/their career.”
Westhampton College in Virginia, meanwhile, has a Womxn’s History Month event planned for almost every day in March, with some days having multiple events scheduled.

Womxn == men who dress like women. AKA WoMen
Geeks celebrating freaks.
A part of me is fascinated by how the left is trying to erase womanhood. It sort of boggles the mind. As a man it changes nothing for me, yet women are having their spaces erased left and right. And its by men primarily with a lot of stupid women buying into it.
Wouldn’t it be easier to just rename it Everybody’s History Month?
Even easier. Get rid of any history month. I, for one, am sick of the hooo-lag.
