According to that sourcelink, the French national assembly is gearing up to remove the words “mother” and “father” from school forms, because it’s discriminatory. What if a child has two moms or two dads? Huh? Huh? HUHHHHH?
The French national assembly has voted to amend its education law to replace the terms ‘mother’ and ‘father’ on school forms with ‘Parent 1’ and ‘Parent 2’.
The move, which passed its first reading on Tuesday, paves the way for the change which lawmakers say gives fair recognition to families with same-sex parents and tackles discrimination.
President Emmanuel Macron‘s République en Marche (REM) party backed the amendment to the ‘Schools of Trust’ law in the interest of ‘anchoring the diversity of families with children in the law’, said Valérie Petit MP.
Some assembly members say the current “social and family models are a little outdated.”
Nonsense. Our culture is wack. THAT’S the problem.
“No one should feel excluded from this society by backward thinking,” REM assembly member Jennifer De Temmerman said.
Riiiiiiiight. Assuming that a child had a mother and father who made them and raised them is SO BACKWARD and archaic WOWOWOWOW.
The amendment says: ‘To prevent discrimination, school enrollment, class registers, parental authorisations and all other official forms involving children must mention only Parent 1 and Parent 2.’
But there’s another problem. Who’s parent #1 and who’s parent #2? Have they accidentally established a hierarchy? #LiberalProblems.
Alexandre Urwicz, President of the Association of Homo-parental Families, had mixed feelings.
‘At first, we welcomed the amendment because, technically, it allows our families to be included in forms that previously did not allow it, ‘ he told AFP.
However, admitted that he was afraid that the new formula is misleading as it might lead to a parental hierarchy: ‘Who is parent number 1 and who is parent number 2?,’ he asked.
Anyway, this is expected to pass. Have fun with that, parent #1 and parent #2.
