Mae Martin has shared a compassionate message on Instagram in response to Bette Midler’s recent controversial tweets. The Feel Good star, who shared their childhood obsession with Midler in their Netflix special, responded to Midler’s tweets after reportedly being inundated with messages about the situation.
This comes after Midler shared a tweet claiming that women are being “stripped” of rights over their bodies, their lives and their name. “They don’t call us women anymore, they call us ‘birthing people’, ‘menstruators’ and even ‘people with vaginas’,” Midler wrote.
Martin’s response encouraged compassion and urged people to take time to understand the perspectives of older feminists who may struggle to understand the need for trans-inclusive language. “These figure heads, like Bette Midler, fought hard for women’s rights and they’re upset when, in the context of reproductive rights, they read phrases like “people with uteruses”.
