Report: Mother’s Day Should Be Renamed, Transgender Men Can Now Give Birth

A progressive activist has suggested Mother’s Day be renamed to reflect how transgender  men are now classified as giving birth.

Norrie May-Welby, who was born a male and had gender reassignment surgery at age 28, said the term ‘mother’ was not exclusive to females.

‘It’s not sex specific. I think mothering is instinctual in all mammals, regardless of biological sex,’ the activist told Daily Mail Australia.

Norrie, 60, won a High Court battle in 2014 to be identified as belonging to neither gender in New South Wales.

In a unanimous decision, Australia’s highest court allowed the state’s Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages to register a person’s sex as ‘non-specific’.

According to the Daily mail’s report, Norrie is calling for a debate on the term Mother’s Day.

‘Mother’ is a verb. One can be mothering without being a biological birther,’ Norrie said.

‘And Mother’s Day, before Hallmark hijacked it, was Mothering Sunday, when one returned to the church one was baptised in’.

While not offended by the term Mother’s Day, Norrie suggested it be renamed ‘Nurturer’s Day’.

‘Of course language shifts with time and place, and it may become Nurturer’s Day, but that’s an extra syllable, and for now, I am happy with ‘Mother’s Day’,’ Norrie said.

Norrie also had a dig at Prime Minister Scott Morrison, who converted to the Pentecostal faith in his youth.

‘Of course, with the ascendance of the Pentecostals in politics, it may become Legally Compelled Incubators Day, but I’ve got to hope that this criminal appropriation of women’s bodies does not become entrenched.’

Three times Highlife Artist of the year Kuami Eugene has revealed that he is the ghostwriter for one of the most viral songs in West Africa.

Rockstar Eugene visited Giovani Caleb on the 3FM Drive where he disclosed that he wrote one of the most viral songs in Africa for a popular Nigerian artist.

He kept details of the name of the artist and the title of the song to himself but hinted that it ranks among the top 5 viral songs on TikTok.

Kuami Eugene added that he does not regret writing the song for the Nigerian artist because he was paid handsomely for his work.

The Lynx Entertainment Signee has worked with a number of Nigerian musicians but his recent work was on the viral song with CKay.

Eugene could not confirm or deny if that was the song he wrote, all he could say was CKay owns the rights to the song.

Kuami Eugene’s new song ‘Take Away’ is out and streaming on all music platforms.

Hello and welcome to this Wednesday’s live blog on the trial involving Johnny Depp and Amber Heard.

After a long battle, we are now in what could be the last week of proceedings. Depp and Heard have both taken to the stand, and now there is a focus on what the witnesses have to say, as well as those close to the former married couple.

It was thought that Depp could be asked to return to the stand, having done so in the early part of the trial, but it appears as though Heard‘s camp have changed tact and will not do this.

One well-known person who is expected to give evidence via a video link today is Kate Moss, Depp’s ex-girlfriend.

The reason for the trial is that Depp is suing Heard for a sum of 50 million dollars due to a domestic abuse column she wrote in the Washington Post in 2018, while she countersued for 100 million dollars.

Throughout the course of day, you will be able to see the latest news surrounding the Depp-Heard trial, as well as updates from the courtroom in Fairfax, Virginia.

Caitlyn Jenner opened up about Kim Kardashian‘s romantic relationships as a guest on The Pivot Podcast on Tuesday (May 24), and shared her thoughts about her former stepdaughter’s estranged husband Kanye West and her current boyfriend Pete Davidson.

“He was very difficult to live with,” Jenner said of West, though she added that the rapper supported her when she transitioned back in 2015.

“Actually, I’m really into Pete right now with Kim,” she shifted gears, talking about the SNL star’s growing relationship with Kardashian. “We have a comedian in the family. Yay! We don’t need more rappers. We need a comedian in the family.”

Kardashian began dating Davidson in the fall, soon after she hosted Saturday Night Liveand nearly a year after she filed for divorce from Ye. The former couple, who tied the knot in May 2014, share four children: North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.

Jenner shared that she ended up meeting the 28-year-old comedian when the Skims founder brought him to the former Olympian’s Malibu home recently. “[Davidson is] very different than what she would normally date, but Kimberly has been through a lot with the guys she’s been with, especially Kanye,” she said. “Pete is 180 degrees in the other direction. First of all, he treats her so well, and when they were over here, Kim [was] so happy, and Kim deserves to be happy.”
