ccording to Pelosi, the Democrats’ House rule changes will “honor all gender identities” by “changing pronouns and familial relationships… to be gender-neutral.”
Terms like “father” and “mother” would be replaced by “parent.” “Brother” and “sister” would be axed in favor of “sibling.” Under these rules, House members would be required to refer to their “husband” or “wife” as their “spouse” or their son(s) and daughter(s) as child(ren).
The rules will be voted on after the 117th Congress is sworn in on Sunday.
In response, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) mocked the proposed changes.
"This is stupid. Signed, - A father, son, and brother," McCarthy tweeted.
Proposed changes to the rules of the House of Representatives would “honor all gender identities” by eliminating such specific terms as mother and father, son and daughter, and aunt and uncle.
Instead, only gender-neutral terms such as “parent,” “child,” “sibling” and “parent’s sibling” would be allowed in the text of the House rules, according to the proposed changes.
The proposed changes — which also include the establishment of a House “Office of Diversity and Inclusion” — will be voted on after the House convenes Sunday for the new 117th Congress.

Because for some reason calling the people that gave birth to you mother, and father is somehow offensive.
Rewriting the english language and others around the world to deny biological fact.
