You still here? Shouldnt you be off stopping a war or something you are worried about?


To be fair, I referred directly to the honourable member in my post above, so nipping away for a minute from campaigning against wars n stuff is understandable


EDIT
Got a star from me as well for getting into the lighter mood of our interaction with a tongue out laughing emoticon

We're all just people with opinions, and I bet face to face over a pint and a game of pool we'd all play nicer than we do behind screens. Text only communication is different, no tone of voice, body language and all the rest of it, that's why the tongue out smiley from the member made me smile.

Canada has a feminist international assistance policy, a feminist prime minister and party, whom created a gender-equal cabinet. This is the road we've been heading down for quite some time now.

I see a future where smiling employees will start interactions with "Hi, my name's X, how would you like me to address you while we talk today?" Some corporate # like that at least.

EDIT
I hope it doesn't happen in the UK because after a hard days work it is such a smile producer when people serving me say "Have a nice evening love" or similar. Probably be deemed a crime in Canada lol, one person who serves me at a supermarket always says "Hiya Bab" and "Have a good one Bab", the person has an appearence of CIS female but of course assuming that is wrong, but from from west midland England and Bab is the same as babe down here in the south west.
The person should be locked up for speaking inappropriately!!!

...has this post been politically correct enough Kaylaluv? I didn't use any gender pro-nouns

Too thick to understand that "father" and "mother" are part of the key identity of the vast majority.

If majority rule is good for South Africa, majority rule is good also for Canada, or anywhere else.

So your input in this conversation is completely irrelevant and pointless. Thanks for clearing that up.

You're a prickly one aren't you, I was only curious, I didn't particularly care, just wondered if mother and father is so offensive these days to transgender people.


It is offensive because you are supposedly imposing gender on another person who may or may not welcome that imposition.

It is the stupidest thing ever.

This is delving right into the realm of absurdity.

Thats what happens when you celebrate the extremes of any ideology and promote its dominance I guess.

I would hate to be a Canadian biology teacher.

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


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!




Could be brother and sister.

Is incest protected yet?

Who knows, who cares. Some kids call their parents by their first name. My daughter did that for a while when she was 3 or so. I thought it was cute, certainly didn’t bother me - as long as she knew I was the boss.

Obviously, the U.S.A. needs to build a wall on our northern border also. We need to keep that European progressive "educated" thinking off our soil... It's getting stupid, and stupid fast!

What kind of a she-man has contempt for the title "mother"? I don't know.

But they sound "progressive" and "educated". Not sure from wear. Oh, that's right! Two mommies or two daddies,.. I remember now.
F'n idiots.

Maybe us "free" U.S. and "free" Canadians can link up one day and form an American nation? And be rid of this "progressive" stupidity?

I think people these days are denying their true nature and re-defining themselves to be whatever they want.

I really considered replying to some of you on this thread.
I decided to be a good GIRL and behave myself.I can't go
around calling people by inappropriate pronouns by mistake.
I will either have to shut my mouth or start looking in a dictionary
for gender-neutral words.I think someone would be offended if
I said things like you or it since I can't say he,she,man,woman...

I don't see what is wrong with this. It is perfectly fine for Canadians to not use the words mother or father. Canadians are already weird so this would be no different then anything else they do.

Just you know as long as they keep it there. It would be quite weird if this spreads to other countries, and quite funny. Hey maybe we can go the way they do for dogs, you know, Sire and Dam. Instead of father and mother. It could be like, bobs Sire was Steve, and his Dam was grace. At one point in time that to was the norm and acceptable, pretty sure more then a few on this site would remember there great grandfather referring to his father as his sire.

The world is getting wackier every day, it is a good thing, we need more comedy amongst all this hoopla and doom and gloom.

Ha! Seen that vid before. Got to agree with the people in the comments section. That kid is going to make a great lawyer or politician one day. Never seen a kid try to bull# and talk his way into a few more cupcakes for lunch.

I'm a father, a man and straight. I expect to be referred to as such.

I find it intolerant to not respect my wish to be called by my proper pronouns.

Sorry PC folks. you cannot have it one way. I have rights and feelings too.
Intolerance bigotry and racism have no boundaries.

Being trans, gay, female, or "insert race, religion, political leaning, gender, etc. here" does not make you automatically a good person.

God a very small portion of humans are really beginning to piss me off.
Whatever happened to common sense and majority rule?

And according to the Canadian government, you will be referred to as such, if that is how you want it. Don’t believe the fake news posted in the OP.
