Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders has officially banned woke terminology deemed anti-woman from official state documents.
“They’re using nonsense words to erase women and girls — and more importantly, to erase our voices and experiences,” Huckabee said at a press conference. “Today, we’re taking a stand against woke nonsense.”
“It’s the Left that decided that ‘woman’ is a dirty word. It’s the Left that decided that we needed to toss out basic biology — and basic grammar along with it,” she said.
The Republican governor’s executive order will ban “a number of all sorts of ridiculous words from state government documents.”
“We are all here to say enough. Enough trying to erase women and girls. Enough denying our biological differences from men. Enough of the craziness taking over our country,” the governor is expected to say at the signing on Thursday afternoon.
Sanders said in recent days that women have taken a backseat to political correctness.

“The science is clear and real; There are things only women can do, like perform the miracle of birth,” Sanders wrote in the executive order. “Government should reject language that ignores, undermines, and erases women; Government should celebrate gender distinctions between men and women — not erase them.”
The order bans phrases like “human milk,” “birth-giver” and “chestfeeding.” Instead, state agencies will be required to use the phrases “breast milk,” “birth mom” and “breastfeeding.”
Here’s the full list of banished words:
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.”
