LOL! 'March for Science' Forced to Apologize for Calling Women... 'Female'?!
I love a good leftist cannibalism story to start off the week. Since marching is soooo hot right now, apparently there is going to be a 'March for Science.' Yes, leftists march for all the things. This shouldn't come as a surprise to anybody. Of course, this protest isn't exactly the type we're used to, seeing as it's sans herds of feminist landbeasts... In this case, think thousands of Bill Nyes stomping around yelling things. The stuff of nightmares, I know, but bear with me.
Let's start with the March for Science Twitter account asking a simple question...
Are you a female who thought about doing engineering but decided against it? Why? What can the science community do… https://t.co/COZvBXBxYG— March for Science (@March for Science) 1487876470.0
Easy peasy! Encouraging more girl involvement in STEM is a leftist rallying cry. Surely, feminists and other leftists would support this sort of innocent question... Right?
Also, don't call them females... you sexist swine!
Cue the buckets of steaming outrage.

@ScienceMarchDC Hey did you know that "woman" has the same number of letters as "female" and doesn't make you sound like a tool?— Lisa ✊ (@Lisa ✊) 1487877493.0

And of course, by now we know how this ends. The March quickly caved in to leftist demands.
Thanks to everyone who pointed out some problematic tweets we made recently. Language matters, especially when it comes to inclusion.— March for Science (@March for Science) 1487949147.0
I see. So in other words, an alleged march for 'science' needs to stop using biologically correct terms to address ladyfolk. Because... INCLUSION!
But remember, the left fancies itself as the party of science. Meanwhile they have a rich and detailed history of hating facts and data (see UK Bans Doctors From Saying 'Mother.' Must Use Gender-Neutral Term Instead... and In NYC, Using Biological Pronouns for Transgenders Is Now Illegal...). So science-y, their hatred of anatomically correct labels. Hold thy laughter, you bigot.
Between their blatant distortion of facts in the realm of climate change and their gender hating ways, the left isn't doing itself any favors when it comes to legitimacy. Mind you, these are also the same 'science-loving' snots who want to punish non-conformers to the full extent of the law. Even leftists themselves aren't safe from being morally crucified over using accurate terms. Clearly.
Intellectual integrity. Who needs it?
