ACLU deletes women as “tribute” to RBG

News.com.au reports:

It’s political correctness to the supreme.

The American Civil Liberties Union is being ripped for a woke tribute to late women’s rights champion Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg — in which they changed her words to erase her use of “woman”, “she” and “her”.

The non-profit tweeted the tribute to the “champion” of “gender equality” on Saturday — the first anniversary of her death — saying, “We miss you, RBG. Your legacy lives on in this fight.”

The ACLU then posted one of Ginsburg’s famous quotes, but altered five sections to make women “people” and all pronouns “they” or “their”.

“The decision whether or not to bear a child is central to a [person’s] life, to [their] wellbeing and dignity,” the altered quote read, hiding Ginsburg’s original use of “woman” and “her”.

It’s one thing to decide for yourself what names to use, but to edit a famous quote is Orwellian.
