Ok, I do understand where You are coming from.

Where I disagree:

1. I hate mob mentality. It was used in my country for many vile doings by nationalists of different kinds, nazis, marxists, communists - and it was awful. A mob is never right.

I wonder how it is possible that people who know how important it is to be properly addressed refuse to address women according to their wishes?

Many women do not want to be addressed "pregnant people" because for hundreds of years their role in society was restricted to being pregrant. This should be obvious.

If You want inclusive language - You can easily say "women and other pregnant people" or "women and trans men" or whatever trans people wish to add for themselves.

Remember - we have the word "misogynist" that is descriptive for this exact case. But some people prefere a sexual slur because that way they can dehumanize and denigrate their adversry.
