Yes – you read that correctly. According to THIS if you want to apply for a passport for your child – they have now eliminated the terms “mother” and “father” and replaced them with “parent 1″ and “parent 2.”
The words “mother” and “father” will be removed from U.S. passport applications and replaced with gender neutral terminology, the State Department says.
“The words in the old form were ‘mother’ and ‘father,’” said Brenda Sprague, deputy assistant Secretary of State for Passport Services. “They are now ‘parent one’ and ‘parent two.’”
A statement on the State Department website noted: “These improvements are being made to provide a gender neutral description of a child’s parents and in recognition of different types of families.” The statement didn’t note if it was for child applications only.
What the fuck has this country come to? Gender neutral? As far as I know – EVERY child in this world has a mother and a father. I don’t care if the female’s egg was fertilized by the male’s sperm in a freakin’ petri dish – the fact of the matter is there is absolutely no way for a child to develop without contribution from a mother and a father.
a. A female person who is pregnant with or gives birth to a child.b. A female person whose egg unites with a sperm, resulting in the conception of a child.c. A woman who adopts a child.d. A woman who raises a child.
a. A male person whose sperm unites with an egg, resulting in the conception of a child.b. A man who adopts a child.c. A man who raises a child.
1. One who begets, gives birth to, or nurtures and raises a child; a father or mother.2. An ancestor; a progenitor.3. An organism that produces or generates offspring.4. A guardian; a protector.
Note that even in the definition of parent – it says “a father or mother.” This bullshit attempt to appease the gay community is just an abomination as their lifestyle. Once again the freakin’ minority gets to dictate the direction of society? WTF?
Sprague said the decision to remove the traditional parenting names was not an act of political correctness.
BULLSHIT! Then explain this –
“Changing the term mother and father to the more global term of parent allows many different types of families to be able to go and apply for a passport for their child without feeling like the government doesn’t recognize their family,” said Jennifer Chrisler, executive director of Family Equality Council.
Her organization lobbied the government for several years to remove the words from passport applications.
“Our government needs to recognize that the family structure is changing,” Chrisler said. “The best thing that we can do is support people who are in loving, stable families”
We may as well have freakin’ Dr. Seuss working in our government now – We are all designated as Things – the parents are Thing 1 and Thing 2 and each child is a successive “Thing” – i.e., Thing 3, Thing 4, etc. So who decides on this passport is Parent 1 and who is Parent 2? Why the hell do we have to designate an ordered parent?
Here are the statistics:
As of 2009 there are approximately 85 Million children in the U.S.
As of 2009 the total population of the United States is approximately 307,000,000 Million people in the U.S. (including the children)
8 to 10 Million children are being raised in gay or lesbian households
So – only about 10% of all children live in gay or lesbian households. Even if we decide each is living with a single gay or lesbian parent – that would say there were up to 10 million homosexuals raising children – which would equate to 4% of the entire adult population. Realistically, looking at them as a family unit with an occasional single parent household – we’re looking at approximately 5 million homosexual families. Why the hell are we allowing such a small minority of the population dictate the language?
So – the State Department has just decided that 96% of the population cannot be classified as mothers or fathers because it would offend the other 4%. Hmm…where have we seen this before – oh – that’s right – healthcare. The damned government took over the entire freakin healthcare system to make sure the 3% without access to health care had access. That makes a lot of sense.
When my family does begin taking our excursions to Germany, England, and Australia – you can better believe that we will have Mother and Father designated on our children’s passports and their applications. MY children do not have Parent 1 and Parent 2 – they have Mom and Dad and that is the way it is for the majority of this population. Fuck the minority. I’m getting sick and tired of catering to their whims and the damned spineless bureaucrats in D.C. giving in to them.
Despite what many think of GWB – at least when it came to school children – he always tried to personally respond to them. If you recall, on 9/11 he was actually reading to a group of school children when those fateful incidents occurred. Obama sends out form letters – dated prior to the date when the kids sent out the letter! Real classy touch there P-BO!
Can this administration and P-BO get any lower than dissing an entire elementary school?
This is my little princess. Rather than be fodder this week for posting jokes or pictures – I would relate a story – one that just happened. It has to do with that lovely little lady up there. She made her daddy proud. We were at the mall the other day. She has a sweet tooth for cookies – she acquired that from her mother – well, whenever we go to the mall – we always get her one of those big chocolate chip cookies to munch on. It keeps her busy.
Well, we were in Old Navy looking for more kids clothes – my 5 year old must be hitting a growth spurt. In any case, there were three little chairs for the kids to sit in while the parents shop. We had her sit in the chair while she eats her cookie so she wouldn’t be tempted to wipe her hands on the clothes. Two other little girls came walking up to her. The older girl looked to be about 5 and she was holding her little sister’s hand – she looked to be around 3 also. They both just stood over my little princess staring at her – or more like staring at her cookie. When my daughter has a cookie – she’s like this
The smaller of the two girls started walking towards my daughter. My daughter didn’t even turn her head. She just lowered her cookie, glanced out of the corner of her eyes and loudly stated
“DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!”
Needless to say – the two little girls walked away at the point and my little princess proceeded to finish off her cookie. This left both my wife and I chuckling (as well as a few other shoppers). Yes, my little princess made her daddy proud that day. I now know that she isn’t going to take any shit from anybody and she certainly isn’t going to let anyone take advantage of her. A chip off the old BoBo!
It is the VERY LAST sentence of this article:
Gibbs: Furor over school speech is “silly season.” – but nevertheless here is what it says:
The White House plans to release the speech online Monday so parents can read it. Obama will deliver the speech at Wakefield High School in Arlington, Va.
I’ll make sure to post and link it here on Monday. Turns out, its not only the public schools that have to worry. I have my kid in a private school and they intend on showing it as well. Depending on what I read on Monday, it is possible my son won’t be in school on Tuesday.
How would you all like to have your children say this pledge in school? How about this pledge:
I pledge allegiance to the funk, to the united funk of funkadelica
(okay – on a side note, when I was in high school I did have the Funkadelic album and one single off that album was “One Nation Under A Groove” that had those lyrics in it. However, I was in high school and was old enough to make my own choice of music. Taken out of context by elementary school kids, they don’t have a clue. There is no need for that. Also – one of the other songs on that album – Promentalshitbackwashpsychosis – don’t ask me what the hell that means..but..at 17 – it was pretty cool to sing – and to play really loud to drive the parents nuts)
But, back to the main point – guess what – these and other leftist and inappropriate type pledges were shown to school chldren – here’s the video:
and here’s the story.
Parents upset over ‘leftist propaganda’ videoEducation » Principal apologizes for showing ‘I Pledge’ to students.
This video was shown at an assembly of elementary school kids. Taken this video, along with the indoctrination attempt this coming September 8, 2009 where P-BO will address the entire public school system K-6 in the entire nation (which no President in American history has ever done) and the fact they are now recruiting kids to help with the 2010 census – how can anybody not say this is being taken straight out of the Marxist playbook?
Here is Marx’s take on education and family – straight from The Communist Manifesto
On what foundation is the present family, the bourgeois family, based? On capital, on private gain. In its completely developed form, this family exists only among the bourgeoisie. But this state of things finds its complement in the practical absence of the family among proletarians, and in public prostitution.
And your education! Is not that also social, and determined by the social conditions under which you educate, by the intervention direct or indirect, of society, by means of schools, etc.? The Communists have not intended the intervention of society in education; they do but seek to alter the character of that intervention, and to rescue education from the influence of the ruling class.
The bourgeois claptrap about the family and education, about the hallowed correlation of parents and child, becomes all the more disgusting, the more, by the action of Modern Industry, all the family ties among the proletarians are torn asunder, and their children transformed into simple articles of commerce and instruments of labor.
Is this sounding a bit too familiar and scary? If any of you parents have your children in public schools, now is the time to be ever vigilant. The leftist extremists are following Marx and are trying to abolish the relationship you have with them in favor of their pledge to P-BO and the state.
And..on a lighter note..this is some really funny shit..but..you gotta watch the video first to understand it. h/t to Dave from Increasingly uncommon common sense for alerting me to this: I Pledge over at Iowahawk. You gotta see this.
I will say that it is always a good thing to teach our children about the way government works and about American history. There is a plan by the Federal government to use your kids in the 2010 census:
The school effort is more ambitious than in 2000, the last time the government set out to count everyone. At that time, teachers had to request the material and it was available only in print. Now, the kits and lessons will arrive in every school and lesson plans can be downloaded online, where they will be available in 28 languages.
Okay – still not entirely bad. I think the kids need to understand the census as it relates to apportionatement of representatives.
The Constitution mandates a complete population count every 10 years. The tally — down to the city block — helps redraw political boundaries and determine states’ representation in Congress and the distribution of more than $400 billion in federal funds to state and local governments every year.
Well – that’s correct also – it should ONLY be a population count. But, given what we learned earlier about the plans for the 2010 Census – which is to also count the number of toilets, TV’s, and cars in your home in addition to asking such things as what time do you leave for work and when do you get home – these are entirely unconstitutional questions.
The warning for all of you out there with children in public schools – when your kids do come home with these kids – look through them very carefully. Teach your children what the constitution says about the census and make sure they understand the constitution only allows the government to ask how many people live in the home. The government is not allowed to have any information beyond that. Please make sure your kids don’t answer any of the other questions – and – if the teachers try to pressure them, make sure you have a little chat with your kids’ teachers as well.
Just one more time for your information – here is what the Article 1, Sec 2 of the constitution states:
(Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other Persons.) (The previous sentence in parentheses was modified by the 14th Amendment, section 2.) The actual Enumeration shall be made within three Years after the first Meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent Term of ten Years, in such Manner as they shall by Law direct.
