The rules for the 117th Congress eliminates gendered terms such as “father, mother, son, and daughter”
The Democrats encroached on the American way of life and presented a new set of rules for the 117th Congress, which, among other corrections, included a list of gender terms for immediate replacement.
“In clause 8(c)(3) of rule XXIII, strike ‘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,’” says the new rules.
Instead of these terms, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Rules Committee Chairman James McGovern (D-MA) proposed gender neutral substitutes.
“Parent, child, sibling, parent’s sibling, first cousin, sibling’s child, spouse, parent in-law, child-in-law, sibling-in-law, stepparent, step child, stepsibling, half-sibling, or grandchild”.
According to Nancy Pelosi, the innovations will make them work efficiently and satisfy the demands of the Americans.
“Thanks to the leadership of Chairman McGovern and our Members, Democrats have crafted a package of unprecedented, bold reforms, which will make the House more accountable, transparent, and effective in our work to meet the needs of the American people,” said Pelosi.
Earlier the FBI report on the criminal past of Nancy Pelosi's father was published. Criminal activity Thomas D'Alesandro Jr. included the gang rape of two minors and close ties to the mafia. Perhaps she wants to eradicate such family ties of Pelosi with the criminal world, because D'Alesandro Jr. will not be her father, but a parent.
