Baby Making Machines is what the Chinese Embassy referred to as the Uyghur women are. Defending the treatment of the Uyghur Muslims by China in Xinjiang, the Embassy said that it is required to eradicate the extremism and they are achieving results.
The Chinese then claimed that it has emancipated the Uyghur women. The Embassy further claimed,
“Gender equality and reproductive health were promoted, making them no longer baby-making machines.”
This was posted on Twitter.
Twitter initially did not find anything wrong with it. It did not violate the policy either. However, after a day, the tweet was replaced by the notice that it has violated the rules.
It has reportedly been removed under the rules of dehumanization.
The ARS reported that a Twitter Spokesperson contacted them and said,
“We prohibit the dehumanization of a group of people based on their religion, race, or ethnicity, among other categories.”
China has been accused by many to torture Uyghur women in the detention camps. The women often go through sexual abuse, pregnancy checks, forced intrauterine devices, forced sterilization, abortion among other physical tortures. Hundreds of women of the religious minority in China are forcibly taken to the detention camps every year.
If the minority community refused to follow the approved number of children and birth control measures, then their homes are searched at any point in time to find hidden babies. The children are also often taken from the parents and sent to an orphanage or other state-run institutions.
The international and world media report less on the plight of Uyghurs. Countries that do not openly speak against it, maybe in fear of angering the Communist country.
However, that has given the Communist Party enough boost now to brag about the detention treatment of Uyghur Muslims.
