According to that sourcelink, San Diego city officials released a “guide to non-discriminatory language” earlier this week, which included a claim that the term “Founding Fathers” is gender-biased.
I can’t even with this.
The guide suggested that our Founding Fathers should instead be simply referred to as “Founders” – you know, so as not to offend anyone.
If there’s someone out there who’s offended by the fact that the US has Founding Fathers, please kindly GTFO of the country asap. Thanks.
The good news, is that there was enough backlash that city officials scrambled to apologize, and Mayor Kevin Falcouner rushed to condemn the guide as “political correctness run amok.”
He said further, “We are proud of our nation’s history and there is nothing wrong with referring to the Founding Fathers.”
Apparently, it’s not currently known who wrote that stupid crap into the guide, and it’s not known if whoever it was will face any discipline. What is known, is that whoever it was is a complete idiot who should move out of the country.
