New House Rules Propose Elimination Of ‘Gendered’ Terms Like ‘Father’ and ‘Daughter’

Small businesses across the country are still shut down. People are struggling to pay rent and bills. But fear not, America. The House of Representatives is on the job, tackling the important issues.

They are proposing to end the use of gendered language. That should help, right?

Kaylee Greenlee reports at the Daily Caller:

Proposed House Rules Eliminate Gendered Terms Like ‘Father’ And ‘Daughter’

The Rules Package for the 117th Congress includes a proposal to replace gendered language referring to a representative’s family members with gender-neutral terms, House leaders announced Friday.

Democratic California Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Democratic Massachusetts Rep. James McGovern, chairman of the Rules Committee, announced changes to the House rules that will “honor all gender identities” by modifying the pronouns and familial relations references in the rules, the Committee on Rules announced.

The resolution would change “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,” McGovern’s announcement said.

The new rules also change “seamen” to “seafarers,” “chairman” to “chair” and “submit his or her resignation” to “resigns,” according to the resolution.

References to fathers, mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, husbands, wives and in-laws would be changed to “parent, child, sibling, spouse, or parent-in-law,” according to the resolution. Extended family members would be referred to as “child’s parent” instead of aunt or uncle, stepparents, and siblings-in-law.

It’s almost like we’re not in a crisis.

New York Rep. Elise Stefanik and other Republicans blasted the plan.

Jon Levine writes at the New York Post:

New York GOP congresswomen blast Nancy Pelosi’s new House gender rules

Some of New York’s most prominent female Republicans derided and mocked Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s proposal to eliminate gendered language from the official House rules.

“Instead of reviving the economy, restoring our Constitutional freedoms and delivering results for the American people, Speaker Pelosi has chosen her debut legislation — which would ban words like mother, sister and daughter,” upstate Rep. Elise Stefanik told The Post. “Obviously she is triggered by the historic number of GOP women elected to Congress who will fire Nancy Pelosi once and for all in 2022.”

Staten Island’s Congresswoman-elect Nicole Malliotakis also had words for the new rules.

“There are millions of Americans suffering, our economy is hurting, vaccine distribution is lagging and Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats are worried about this nonsense,” she said. “Here’s a gender neutral word to describe this legislation: ridiculous.”

The Democratic party is now pretty much indistinguishable from the College Democrats of UC-Berkeley. They care about the same issues and share the same level of maturity.

In the midst of a crisis, it beggars belief.

“‘Instead of reviving the economy, restoring our Constitutional freedoms and delivering results for the American people, Speaker Pelosi has chosen her debut legislation — which would ban words like mother, sister and daughter,’ upstate Rep. Elise Stefanik told The Post.”

Meh. It’s not as though the Communists are in any danger of being tossed out of power by the proles, thanks to their massive cheating machine. You can bet that the first things the Biden* administration will do is to mandate nationwide voting by mail, “ballot harvesting”, granting amnesty making tens of millions of illegals citizens, and anything else the Communists think will keep them in power permanently.

Before anyone goes off half-cocked, remember that this change is only to the House rules. It has no relevance to anyone or anything else.

Yes, it’s a complete waste of time, but any time the Dems waste on nonsense like this is time they’re not destroying the country, so it’s all good.

    Actually Milhouse have you read the changes she proposes in entirety…they will make it very easy for the majority..Dems..to silence the GOP. In addition to getting rid of procedural rules that have been in place for over a century that allow the ideas of the mi urity party to be heard there is a vague rule about ethics violations of members who post something others find inappropriate…they will be barred from the floor…so NO, not all good.

      Milhouse in reply to caseoftheblues. | January 3, 2021 at 7:20 pm

      This article is only about the change to the language of the rules themselves. The things you mention are irrelevant to this topic.

        caseoftheblues in reply to Milhouse. | January 4, 2021 at 8:38 am

        Oh its relevant….you running cover for the deeply damaging rules Pelosi is proposing wont fly here. Hair splitting naval gazing butt covering lawyers like yourself ARE the problem and the people who paved the path for the destruction of this country by the left.

          Milhouse in reply to caseoftheblues. | January 4, 2021 at 4:31 pm

          So, smartarse, whom exactly does it damage, and how? Have you ever read the House rules? Do you ever intend reading them? Will they be less comprehensible now that they will be rewritten in this strange way?

    Groundhog Day in reply to Milhouse. | January 3, 2021 at 11:00 am

    “It has no relevance to anyone or anything else.”

    You are aware that ‘dictionary.com’ changed the definition of ‘court packing’ shortly after the Communist Party of America (formerly known as Democrats) did? So yes, of course, it will change language used in the US, just give it time – not to mention, that this isn’t anything new…

      Milhouse in reply to Groundhog Day. | January 3, 2021 at 7:19 pm

      The change to “court packing” was to correct it from being purely a historical reference to something that was proposed in the 1930s, to something that is still relevant and comes up from time to time, e.g. the Dem plan to do it next year. It would have been malpractice for dictionary.com to knowingly leave the old definition; in fact I was surprised that it had ever been that way. Court packing proposals didn’t just spring up this year; they’ve been made regularly for decades.

      This change, though, is only to the house rules. And let’s be clear, the rules will not be changed to require members to use gender-neutral language. It’s only the rules themselves that will use it. So who gives a damn what language the house rules use? For all I care they could be written in Russian, or they could be revised to avoid using the letter “T”. It doesn’t affect anybody in any way.

        zennyfan in reply to Milhouse. | January 3, 2021 at 9:37 pm

        Come on, man. Replacing one justice with another isn’t court packing, and you know it. So does dictionary.com.

          Milhouse in reply to zennyfan. | January 3, 2021 at 11:12 pm

          And that’s not what dictionary.com says. It says you pack a court by changing its number or composition. Not just by filling vacancies as they occur. The only change is that under the new definition this is something you could do now, or at least talk about doing now, whereas the old definition thought the term merely referred to one historical proposal to do it.

As our government schools begin to reopen this month, our government teachers will point out to our children just how culturally backward and uneducated their parents are regarding gender politics.

The government teachers will then praise congress for its enlightened rules of intercourse and will smugly inform our children how important it is that they follow our government’s teachings rather than the teachings of their parents and churches.

    This was already happening by the mid 70’s. My smalls came home one day and said to me “That’s only your opinion”. “Who told you that?” “My teacher”. A sermon about listening to teachers instead of mothers followed, successfully, of course. Someone was going to die on that hill, and it was going to be her. I’m happy to say, it was her.

    But what about the other kids? They’re 50 now!

Jim McGovern, another in a long line of Massachusetts embarrassments.

The attempts to pacify the progressives begin for the new year. How many folks outside the beltway of DC and our coastal areas believe this sort of thing is the answer? Not many.

This and other steps towards appeasing the leftist bloc of the d party will highlight the difference between what some d voters thought they were getting v reality. There are still folks who vote d because they always have, not out of ideology or political policy preference but from habit.

The d will make it easier to highlight how out of touch they are from many of their voters. Particularly those within the black and Latino communities who haven’t yet succumb to ‘liberation theology’.

Voting against DJT will be clearly shown as not solving the Nation problems. The coming internal strife and struggle for power within the unnatural d/progressive coalition is going to be fun to observe.

    Whitewall in reply to CommoChief. | January 3, 2021 at 12:50 pm

    Indeed! So our TASS News Service will only highlight the rift in the R party between the Patriot wing and the Doormat wing.

This is a big step forward in a 40-year old leftie goal. Shows you how relentless they are.

I taught child psych in a university in the 80’s. That’s 40 years. There were many papers then trying to substitute “caregiver” for mother and father. There’s no comparison, and they know it.

Retired now so don’t know if M & F are permissible in child psych books, but now congress. Sickening. Still hoping I live one day longer than Pelosi.

If only they would restrict themselves to idiocy like this. But no. Give them a little time and, having solved the deep and meaningful problem of gendered language, they will turn their attention to solving other horrific problems such as climate change, over policing, and living Republicans who still think their votes should count.

    hopeful in reply to irv. | January 3, 2021 at 8:09 pm

    It’s not really idiocy–it’s about controlling how people think–erasing important distinctions and making you think and talk the way they want you to. Mother and caregiver are not the same. As John Bowlby once said “You can’t pay someone enogh to do what a mother will do for free”. Everyone knows that, even them.

    Like a cat, probing, probing. Just how far can they go? 2020 showed they can burn cities down, ruing people’s lives over nothing, make you talk the way they want you to.

The Communists plan to eliminate the family unit with the goal to control all childrearing situations.

Okay, anyone who is non-binary, homosexual, transsexual, has alters, a/k/a multiple personalities, dissociative identity disorder, etc., are telling us they suffered some form of trauma, usually in childhood.

So when someone named Busy Phillips tells us her 12-year-old daughter is homosexual, Busy is telling us somewhere she let her daughter down.

The child was neglected, molested, abused, something somewhere along the line. I have also heard of trauma in children caused by being in a tornado and other similarly terrifying events. I also came across an episode of Toddlers and Tiaras about 10 years ago? In that, the mother admitted her daughter had different personalities and different names, so why wasn’t child protective services telling the mom to never take that child to a pageant again? The child couldn’t handle the anxiety.

I’ve known people with alters and they compartmentalize and the whole thing is very annoying, but I’m certain far more annoying for them. If you’re a man struggling with any issues from childhood or adulthood, http://www.MaleSurvivor.org has resources to help. You can improve, it does get better, there is help.

But, no thank you to the militant set pretending they’re perfectly normal and we should incorporate their mental challenges into the lives of total normals. No, we weren’t abused, neglected, mistreated, and we really have no intention of pretending we were so that you won’t feel the odd man out. I feel for you, very sad for you, but no, we’re not doing that.

By the way, if you have any questions about this, I can be found on Gab.com as CloseTheFed.

    P.S. So whereever this Busy Philipps lives, child protective services should be asking that family questions, lots of questions…. as well as the child’s teachers, babysitters, relatives, club officers, etc. Find out who abused this child or how she had this idea planted in her head.

    zennyfan in reply to Close The Fed. | January 3, 2021 at 9:41 pm

    Seriously?

      Close The Fed in reply to zennyfan. | January 3, 2021 at 9:53 pm

      Yes. Do you know anyone assaulted as a child? I know quite a few.

      I spent years reading about it, asking questions, learning about it, because I was trying to understand people with these problems. I now have a very good understanding of it.

Million Pitchfork March, anyone?

I used to not care about this battle, but I’ve been watching a lot of Jordan Peterson.

Nope- don’t give an inch.

And before that: baby, replaced by fetus (e.g. Fetal-American) to socially distance abortionists and Humpty Dumpties (“good” Americans) from their victims. That said, sex: male and female, was replaced by gender: physical and mental (e.g. sexual orientation) attributes, in order to normalize the transgender spectrum. The word gay was appropriated some time in the early to mid-twentieth century to socially distance trans/homosexuals from their impure cousins in the spectrum.

It’s pathetic the dems stoop to pandering and using folks with emotional issues, with psychological issues, in order to gain power.

It’s cruel, ruthless, power-mad, calculating, and manipulative of the very most vulnerable among us. The dems, completely conscience-free. If all that weren’t bad enough, they’re aggressively trying to deconstruct healthy normalcy in the bargain.

Truly evil barbarians.

Bela Pelosi presides over the kakistocracy of world’s largest collection of dumbed-down, self-absorbed, spoon-fed, celebrity-obsessed, White guilt-ridden, Birkenstock-wearing, bottled-water-drinking, Politically Correct, kumbaya-singing, Xanax-disabled, Rainbow Plantation, bobble-headed Socialist Liberal Lemmings catering to a bunch of worthless federal tit-sucking, free-shit-grabbing, no morals, unemployed, barely aware, dope-smoking, self-absorbed, media-influenced, celebrity-obsessed, sheet grabbing, pillow biting, moisturizing-metro-sexuals and Food-Stamp wielding, Escalade driving, Kool-Aid drinking, government-dependent, entitlement rich, busted-ass, uninformed, short attention span parasites all in lock-step with Stupid!

The real reason is Pelosi was tired of constantly being called a corrupt “motherf–ker”.

We have to get out of Dodge. No way we can stay in it and share a nation with these corrupt, suicidal psychos.

OwenKellogg-Engineer | January 3, 2021 at 11:02 pm

Well, if they are equalizing genders, it won’t be long before they end the prayer with “Amen…….and Awomen”

One step away from use of “comrades”.

This is neurotic, provincial, and downright stupid.

If we’re so worked up about gendered programs, why don’t we jump on the Spanish language as well? I’m an ESOL teacher in a heavily Hispanic community, and we address a group of Hispanophone parents as “Padres Estimados”, even though we know full well a bunch of mothers will be hearing us as well.

I also spent a lot of my adult life in countries where Sinitic or Kradai languages were spoken. These do not gender their third person pronouns, yet their speakers can be as big a bunch of male chauvinist whatevers as anyone who uses an Indo-European or Sinitic language.

Frankly, the whole Democratic Party deserves to be pelted with rotten eggs and told to go home.
