The House Judiciary Committee was meeting today to discuss the issue of abortion, and one Republican congressman got his head handed to him when he asked a female doctor who was testifying to tell him what a woman is.
Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC) asked Dr. Yashica Robinson, an abortion provider in Alabama, the question after she noted that she preferred she/her pronouns:
Dr. Robinson responded:
The congressman interrupted:
That’s when the doctor put Bishop on full blast:
“I think it’s important that we educate people like you about why we’re doing the things that we do. And so the reason I use she and her pronouns is because I understand that there are people who become pregnant that may not identify that way and I think it is discriminatory to speak to people or to call them in such a way as they desire not to be called.”
The self-satisfied congressman then asked:
Again, the doctor gave as good as she got, telling Bishop:
The better question is one that should be asked of Congressman Bishop: Can you tell us what a bigoted eunuch looks like? If you’re uncertain, go take a glance in the nearest mirror.
