Bette Midler sparks debate by saying trans-inclusive language erases women

Bette Midler caught some fire on Twitter on Monday when she tweeted about the trans community

The “Hocus Pocus” star, 76, scribed: “WOMEN OF THE WORLD!

“They don’t call us ‘women’ anymore; they call us ‘birthing people’ or ‘menstruators

Twitter users slammed Midler on social media, with several arguing that her words were false.

“Really disappointed in this as a trans man and a Bette Midler fan
