US Representative Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) is calling out her party for pushing through a new code of conduct that essentially denies women exist by requiring gender-neutral language in Congressional rules.
“It’s the height of hypocrisy for people who claim to be the champions of rights for women to deny the very biological existence of women,” Gabbard said on Monday night in an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
New guidelines introduced by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday and passed Monday by Congress in a party-line vote endeavor to “honor all gender identities” by making all pronouns and references to familial relationships gender-neutral. For instance, “seamen” has been changed to “seafarers,” and House rules have been scrubbed of such words as “father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister.”“Aunt” and “uncle” will be replaced by “parent’s sibling.” Lawmakers also must inculcate such words as “parent-in-law,”“stepsibling” and “sibling’s child” to replace “mother-in-law,”“stepsister” and “niece.”“He” or “she” references to House members are instead “such member,”“delegate” or “resident commissioner.”
“It’s mind-blowing because it shows just how out of touch with reality and the struggles of everyday Americans people in Congress are,” Gabbard said. “Also, their first act as this new Congress could have been to make sure that elderly Americans are able to get the COVID vaccine now… , but instead of doing something that could actually help save people’s lives, they’re choosing instead to say, ‘Well, you can’t say mother of father in any of this congressional language.’ It’s astounding.”…
