Piers Morgan Calls Out Michelle Obama For Using ‘Woke’ Term
Michelle Obama is being called out by Piers Morgan for using the "woke" term "womxn" instead of saying "women."
The no-nonsense British television personality Piers Morgan is calling out the former First Lady Michelle Obama for using a “woke” term for women in an Instagram post over the weekend.
Obama Uses Word ‘Womxn’
“State lawmakers will have the power to strip womxn of the right to make decisions about their bodies and their healthcare,” Obama wrote on her Instagram page on Sunday. The post was meant to be her reaction to the Supreme Court’s possible overturn of Roe V. Wade.
First rule of oppression: deny their existence so their rights can easily be erased.
Don't pretend you care for female body autonomy and their SEX-based rights when you're too scared to name them.

Daily Mail reported that the word “womxn” is a woke term that is meant to be inclusive to transgender and non-binary people. Leftists reportedly came up with the word because they believe the word “woman” has “problematic, patriarchal roots,” according to The Express. However, critics have said that the word “womxn” erases the experiences of women who are cisgender.

Morgan fired back at Obama for using this word in a post to his Twitter account on Tuesday morning.
“So in supposedly defending women’s rights, she can’t even use the word ‘women’ – unbelievable,” Morgan wrote.

Morgan wasn’t the only person to call out Obama, as many others fired back at her for saying “womxn” as well.
“Democrats, don’t expect the Obamas to save you from weird woke terminology,” said Republican Party pollster and political strategist Patrick Ruffini, with former RNC spokesman Doug Heye asking, “Just asking a practical question here, how does one pronounce ‘womxn?'”
Obama Sounds Off
In her original post about “womxn,” Obama expressed fears that they would lose the right to make decisions about their own bodies.
“It’s been a tough couple of weeks since we saw the leaked SCOTUS draft opinion on abortion,” she wrote.
“If it comes to pass, we may soon live in a country where millions of women — not to mention our children and grandchildren — lose the right to make decisions about their bodies and their health,” she added. “Even if we knew the courts were heading toward this day, it doesn’t make the frustration, grief, and fear any less real.”
AOC References ‘Menstruating Persons’
Erasing biological women’s experiences seems to be a new habit of the radical left. Last fall, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was slammed for using the term “menstruating persons” as she tried to attack Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) for being ignorant of reproductive science, in her opinion.
“I don’t know if he is familiar with a menstruating person’s body,” Ocasio-Cortez said at the time. “In fact, I do know that he’s not familiar with a woman – with a female or menstruating person’s body.”
This all just goes to show how out of touch the left has become with what the American people want. They’re way more focused on using whatever the new “woke” terminology is than they are on actually fixing one of the many issues that plague our country.
In the end, Obama and her fellow liberals should not be surprised if this comes back to bite them in the midterm elections in November.
