It's Already Begun, Dems Block Biology In Congress
It's not even January 20th and already Democrats are bushing to abolish gender roles in Congress. With Democrats holding the majority in the House and Senate I shudder to think what the next few years will be like.
According to a report by TheDailySignal, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Rules Committee Chairman James P. McGovern, D-Mass., unveiled the rules for the 117th Congress on January 1st. The press release claimed the package would include “sweeping ethics reforms” to make the new House of Representatives “the most inclusive in history.”
Among the many changes brought on by the new rules, the package:
"Changes pronouns and familial relationships in the House rules to be gender neutral or removes references to gender, as appropriate, to ensure we are inclusive of all Members, Delegates, Resident Commissioners and their families—including those who are nonbinary."
The report goes on to add that the new House rules will also “address issues of inequities on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, age, or national origin; honor all gender identities by changing pronouns and familial relationships in the House rules to be gender-neutral.”
The writer and political commentator Andrew Sullivan observed on social media that these rules essentially ban terms that delineated biological differences like ‘‘father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, husband, wife, father-in-law, or mother-in-law.”
I say this is a liberal agenda because federal law already prohibits the discrimination of anyone based on their gender, sexual orientation, race, and religion. So what is the point of abolishing gender roles and gender-specific words?
Clearly, if this passes and becomes the new normal in one of the highest branches of the government in the United States, I think it'll be pretty safe to assume it's going to trickle down to the rest of us.
