    Just one of those things that make me wonder about priorities.
    *******************************

    "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.’"

    Yeah but who wants to be "Parent #2"?...That means someone is the #1 parent which signifies they are the top parent.
    I call for a ban on these immediately!! How insensitive can you be??

    How about sperm donor and egg donor?

    One and two imply rank of importance. Biology does not recognize this.

    They are doing that so the queers that have adopted a baby can get a passport. Let's give a big hand to some more political correctness bullshit.

    Well...for those paranoid enough to really care, "father" has always preceded "mother" on any similiar application. Why was precedence historically given to the father in the first place?

    Sigh...so much petty shit to worry about, so little time.
