Now 2 US House of Representatives leaders want to ban "mother" and "father."
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Rules Committee Chairman James McGovern (D-Mass.) propose to use “gender-inclusive language.
The rules include changes that would “honor all gender identities by changing pronouns and familial relationships in the House rules to be gender neutral.”
Terms to be struck from clause 8(c)(3) of rule XXIII, the House’s Code of Official Conduct would also include “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, [and] granddaughter.”
Such terms would be replaced with “parent, child, sibling, parent’s sibling, first cousin, sibling’s child, spouse, parent-in-law, child-in-law, sibling-in-law, stepparent, stepchild, stepsibling, half-sibling, [and] grandchild.”
Pelosi and McGovern said this "increases accountability for the American people, and makes this House of Representatives the most inclusive in history.”

Is this anti-sexist or more super-liberal nonsense?
