The Democratic majority in the House has proposed sweeping changes to language used in the chamber, eliminating gendered terms including “mother” and “husband.”
The proposed rule package seeks to “honor all gender identities” by striking words including “seaman,” “chairman,” “father,” “mother,” “sister,” “husband,” and “wife” from use and replacing them with gender-neutral terms including “seafarer,” “chair,” “parent,” “child,” and “sibling.”
The resolution, proposed Friday by Rep. James McGovern, the chairman of the House Rules Committee, will be voted on after the 117th Congress is sworn in on Sunday.
If passed, the package will also strike the use of “himself and herself” in favor of the term “themself,” and track the “diversity” of witnesses appearing before House panels.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi praised the “visionary rules package,” saying it a statement the package “reflects the views and values of the full range of our historically diverse House Democratic Majority.”
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy mocked the proposed changes, calling them “stupid,” while Representative-elect Marjorie Taylor Green called the measures a “blatant denial of truth” and an “attack on families.”

—-[ Political Statement ]—-
Nothing in this post should be taken as for, or against a particular politician, bill or candidate.
To God there is no such thing as an “American Christian Political Movement.”
God may call a Christian to be involved in politics, but He will be ashamed of such a person if they find their place in the United States as an “American Christian.”
Fact is, a disciple following Jesus has the exact same attitude as Abraham who followed the Living God.
- All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance. And they admitted that they were aliens and strangers on earth. People who say such things show that they are looking for a country of their own. If they had been thinking of the country they had left, they would have had opportunity to return. Instead, they were longing for a better country–a heavenly one. Therefore, God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them. (Hebrews 11:13-16)
