The left’s fight to insert “gender neutrality” into every aspect of daily life just grew serious legs on Capitol Hill, thanks to radical, new gender-related rules being introduced in the upcoming new session of the 117th Congress.
If speeches and bills sound and look a little different in the near future, it’s due to an announcement by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Rules Committee Chairman James McGovern (D-MA) that the House end the use of “gendered” terms like “father, mother, son, and daughter.”
There are a number of “future-focused” new rules being introduced for the new session of Congress and beyond, but out of all of the pressing issues facing these politicians, they decided to spend their energy explaining how common terms to describe family members is just not the American way any longer.
All — and we mean every single last one — “gendered” terms will be canceled, including “father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, first cousin, nephew, niece, husband, wife, father-in-law, mother-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, stepfather, stepmother, stepson, stepdaughter, stepbrother, stepsister, half brother, half sister, grandson, or granddaughter” according to Pelosi’s new rule package.
The committee’s goal was to “honor all gender identities by changing pronouns and familial relationships in the House rules to be gender-neutral.”
Under Pelosi’s insane new rule, members of the House will have to completely change how they write and speak, so as to not break the rules, including swapping out those nasty “gendered” terms with replacements like “parent, child, sibling, parent’s sibling, first cousin, sibling’s child, spouse, parent-in-law, child-in-law,” and so on.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), quickly responded to Pelosi’s announcement with one simple descriptor.
“This is stupid. Signed, – A father, son, and brother,” McCarthy wrote in a tweet on Friday.
According to Axios, the push to eliminate traditional terms that identify the two genders is partly due to the number of progressives in Congress and adding to that, the increase in binary and transgender candidates winning elections across the country.
