'THEY'RE ERASING WOMEN RIGHT BEFORE OUR EYES': Boebert Blasts Michelle Obama for Using Term 'Womxn'

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.18.22

Former First Lady Michelle Obama weighed in on the Roe v. Wade battle on Instagram, saying “State lawmakers will have the power to strip womxn of the right to make decisions about their bodies and their healthcare.”

Womxn? Yes, womxn.

“The spelling of ‘womxn’ has in recent years been used as an alternative because, according to some progressives, the word ‘woman’ has problematic, patriarchal roots,” Fox News reports.

Rep. Lauren Bobert (R-CO) blasted the former FLOTUS for erasing women and bowing to the latest gender ideology trends.

“So now the term woman is too old school for Michelle Obama and she’s decided to start using ‘womxn’. Yes, really. They’re erasing women right before our eyes!” Boebert tweeted.

Boebert sent another tweet, saying “I’m a woman, not a womxn.”

Shortly after the backlash on social media, Michelle Obama’s team removed the term “womxn” from the Instagram post.

In her larger message, Obama opined on how women may lose rights 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. Even if we knew the courts were heading toward this day, it doesn’t make the frustration, grief, and fear any less real.

“But we don’t have to stand idly by while others try to turn back the clock on progress,” she continued. “I’m so inspired by everyone out marching today. And I know that we’re going to see so many folks carrying this energy forward to the elections in November and in every election after that.”
