Nancy Pelosi bans gender terms in the House

January 2, 2021

The first order of business when the House convenes in January will be to adopt the rules under which will will operate and you will be happy to learn that Nancy Pelosi is working tirelessly to write up the rules so there will be no delay when the House convenes. Here is more:

“This package, which will be introduced and voted on once the new Congress convenes, includes sweeping ethics reforms, increases accountability for the American people, and makes this House of Representatives the most inclusive in history,” said the House Committee on Rules in a statement.

How does she intend to make the House the most inclusive in history? By excluding certain terms which are now apparently offensive.

n clause 8(c)(3) of rule XXIII, gendered terms, such as “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” will be removed.

In their place, terms such as “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, or grandchild” will be used, instead.

Apparently we can still call her Madam Speaker, she is not leading by example and she really loves that noble sounding title…

I have a feeling I am going to be saying this quite a bit in the years ahead, but it is good to see they have their priorities in order, especially with the people struggling due to the overreaction to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    These changes are necessary pending the delayed release of Orwell’s Newspeak Dictionary, Version 71.

    Reading this more closely I also note with gratitude that they intend to remove the gendered version of “first cousin” and replace it with a neutered/spayed version of “first cousin.” This is progressive progress that we can all believe in.
