The Rules Package for the 117th Congress announced by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Rep. James McGovern (D-MA) replace gendered language referring to a representative’s family members with gender-neutral terms.
The announcement boasts the package “includes sweeping ethics reforms, increases accountability for the American people, and makes this House of Representatives the most inclusive in history”
Part of the package is to “honor all gender identities” by modifying gendered pronouns.
Per DailyCaller, 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.”
The House Judiciary GOP wrote “You’ve got to be kidding, Madam @SpeakerPelosi” in response to the proposal.
