CNN Spokesman Doubles Down On Network’s Decision To Say ‘Individuals With A Cervix’ Instead Of ‘Women’


CNN spokesman Matt Dornic doubled down on the network’s decision to use the phrase “individuals with a cervix” instead of “women” Friday.

The network tweeted Thursday about cervical cancer screening and HPV testing. The tweet used the phrase “individuals with a cervix” instead of referring to these “individuals” as women. A cervix is present in females and connects the vagina and uterus in a female’s reproductive system.

Multiple publications wrote about the phrasing, including The Federalist, Town Hall and The Daily Mail. Dornic pointed out these articles and doubled down on the phrasing, suggesting it was an attempt to be inclusive towards transgender and intersex people.
