A Canadian government agency has issued new guidelines telling staff to use gender-neutral terms instead of “father” or “mother” when talking to clients.

The directive by Service Canada ... says staff should use gender-neutral honorifics in order to avoid “portraying a perceived bias”

Honorifics such as mister, missus or miss “can be seen/perceived as gender specific"

The guidelines noticeably rule out using the words “father” and “mother,” as they are deemed “gender specific.”

Employees of a government agency in Canada are no longer allowed to use words such as "father" or "mother", as these words refer to a specific gender and might be seen as "biased". This government agency is basically telling its employees that it's bad to acknowledge that genders exist.
Humanity is being absolutely twisted and perverted to the point of total moral and spiritual degeneracy. We are in a world where men are told they can be women and women are told they can be men, but you must dare not call them either because it's sexist to refer to gender.

Not even China would pull that crap. Despite what some may think, their family values are very important to them there (more than here I'd dare say).

So they are going to use the word “parent”.

Well, that’s it. We’re all gonna die. Thanks Canada!

What are they supposed to say instead? What do Canadian birth certificates have on them?

Child name: Johnny Jones
Sperm donor: Jack Jones
Egg donor: Jill Jones

Yep I saw this on the news. Its been in the works awhile, its all the Canada Service Centers that are doing this. I think its one of the worst things our government has initiated.

When my daughter was growing up i always felt proud when I had to write mother on government forms. My husband felt as equally proud to write father.

what happens on mothers day and fathers day, or will they combine it in one day and call it parent day.

sheeesh don't they have more important things to be concerned about.

Totally unacceptable.

First of all, the names "Johnny" & "Jack" those are male names.

Then sperm implies not only MALE sex junk stuff, but that males are required to procreate.

"Jones" points out how the women adopt the mans last names at marriage, thus rubbing the Patriarchy in everyones face.

Dont be such a jerk!

Proves another point that the world has forgotten what is important and what isnt.

World war 3 will fix that for sure.

When you are concerned about human lives being lost, you stop worrying about trying not to offend someone elses feelings.

Dont worry, they'll just ban Father's Day and promote Mother's Day to National Holiday Status.

Wow - really? The worst?



sheepish don't they have more important things to be concerned about.


I know I have more important things to be concerned about... like war, or health care, or education, or the economy... so, you’ll have to excuse me if I don’t spend any time worrying about government forms using the word “parent”.

Yup. Heard this on the news last night. Stupidest thing ever. I lost brain cells trying to wrap my mind around this. What the hell is Mister Trudeau thinking?

I’m in the U.S. and I have filled out various paperwork, some government-related, some not - that has asked for first parent information and second parent information.

Funny enough, I didn’t lose my mind, or have nightmares for months afterwards, or lose my identity as my child’s mother.

If you are a same-sex couple, mother/father doesn’t work. But parent always works.

Ah don't worry, it'll be the norm soon, my country Britain usually follows soon after when stuff like this happens over the Atlantic.
I still can't imagine what your birth certificates will end up like if mother and father are so offensive.

I adopted this enlightened philosophy a long time ago when I decided to just acknowledge everyone as gender-neutral 'morons.'

What do children raised in same sex relationships call their parents then? Mommy one and mommy two, or daddy one and daddy two?
Genuine question, I don't know any same sex couples raising kids together.

I can't believe we live in a time where the word mother is offensive.
I would weep for the future but I'm not sure we have a future.

Agreed, to me 'Mother' is one of the most beautiful words in the English language.
