A Berkeley Law professor has accused Senator Hawley of being “transphobic” and “open[ing] trans people to violence.”
During a Tuesday abortion hearing before Senate members, professor Khiara Bridges used the term “people with a capacity for pregnancy” rather than “women” while talking about abortion and pregnancy. Senator Hawley pressed Bridges on the use of this non-traditional expression, to which Bridges implied Hawley was committing an act of violence against “transgender” individuals.
Let us know what you think in the comments below.
Hawley said, “…you’ve referred to ‘people with a capacity for pregnancy’. Would that be ‘women’?”
Bridges removed her N-95 mask and responded, “many cis women have the capacity for pregnancy, many cis women do not have the capacity for pregnancy. There are also trans men who are capable of pregnancy as well as non-binary people who are capable of pregnancy.”
Hawley retorted, “So, this isn’t really a women’s rights issue?”

After more back and forth questioning, Bridges described Hawley’s questions as “violent”, “So, um, I want to recognize that your line of questioning is transphobic and it opens up trans people to violence…”
Bridges continued, “do you believe men can get pregnant?”
Hawley responded, “No. I don’t think men can get pregnant”
Bridges said, “Then you are denying that trans people exist.”

Many see the exchange between the senator and professor is a reflection of the greater political discussion around sex, gender and the nature of reality.
Transgenderism as an operating philosophy has been integrated into almost every American institution – particularly in education. Public school teachers are teaching toddlers that doctors incorrectly guess gender at birth. Former press secretary Jen Psaki even encouraged teachers to talk to kids about whether they are a “boy or girl”. University of North Texas students verbally berated a man and called him a “fascist” for opposing the genital mutilation of his child.
Neta Rice you are 100% correct.
This WOMAN actually teaches at Berkeley? No wonder higher education is a JOKE with CLOWNS🤡 like this in classrooms.
Hey, stop that. It is not a woman. It is a total moron and should not be teaching in any school. God mad man and woman. Weather you like it or not that is the only TRUE names for the TWO sexes. there are no more than that. Only a woman can become pregnant. If you believe that a trans fool can bear a child then give me an honest, fact proven time when that happened.
There are many ways to describe this professor but I’ll just use one. She’s an idiot! Why is everyone so afraid to state the obvious?
Our fear of speaking out is the reason we have these unqualified people teaching and brainwashing our youth today.
I just can’t respect a professor with 2 rings in 2 areas of her nose.
As is evident in this world, there are two sexes – make – female – only females can get pregnant. So why are we hearing these weird conversations in the first place.
People, mental illness is alive and well.
