Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, February 16, 2019

French schools are to replace the words "mother" and "father" with "parent 1" and "parent 2" under an amendment to a law passed this week. Supporters of the change say it will stop discrimination against same sex parents but critics argue it "dehumanises" parenthood, is "ugly" and could lead to rows over who gets to be "parent 1".

OH, the conservatives will lose their minds, again, over this. Then society will go one and life the world will continue to get warmer while the same morons deny science.

Who gives a crap? How does this hurt any of you? Be comfortable in your gender and your sexuality, and you will find there is no threat to you.

God, what snowflakes.

Safe to say these two dopes had a miserable childhood and were required to call their mom and dad "parental unit 1 and 2."

Gay marriage and adoption is a reality. Deal with it homophobes. There will be families with two Dads or two Moms, there are right now. Forms need to be created which allow them to state their relationship to their children whether homophobes like it or not. In reality, this is for the benefit of the children in those homes, how else can both parents in a gay marriage be able to have access to their children at school, etc. It's simple practicality.

Nulli thinks "1984" is the future. Hilarious!

If a child has same sex parents can't he just refer to both of them as mom or dad?

This is utterly stupid but if this is what France wants, have at it.

"If a child has same sex parents can't he just refer to both of them as mom or dad?"

If he has two Dads neither one of them will want to be referred to as "Mom." Forms should allow for the realities of modern society. You may not like modern society but others of us are celebrating its reality today.

Why limit it to just two parents then?

#23 | Posted by sentinel at 2019-02-17 01:07 PM | Reply

Cool. But what if both parents want to be parent number 1? Who decides who is 1 and who is 2? Alphabetical maybe?

Fine, tell them to look between their legs and go from there..

"Why limit it to just two parents then?"

I don't even know if I truly oppose polygamy except it would have to be reserved for people of adult age. No teenagers or forced prearranged marriages. Why should society tell any of us how we have to live our lives?

You may not like modern society

Maybe we should "change" modern society. Change it back to what is is and was. But that will make liberals mad.

"But that will make liberals mad."

Guess what dummy? There are many gay conservatives out there who adopt children and raise them into fine adults. Perhaps you'd prefer they were left in group homes? We had a gay couple raising several children born with HIV here in S. Florida and right wing Christians lunatics wanted those kids returned to those group homes. The word Christian doesn't mean "Christian" any more, it means "hater."

Conservatives will howl in outrage over this even though it has no effect on their lives whatsoever.

Rage on snowflakes!

You are so easily triggered.

Mother and father are basically biological. Everyone has both, that is indisputable. Parent is a roll assumed by an individual. Can a gay person be a parent? They have been doing so forever. Semitics does change reality. Calling a blind individual visually challenged does not change a thing. Honestly, why are we changing language for the sensitivities of two percent of the population?

Political Correctness went off a cliff. Soon jokes will be a felony. Trump is working on that.

"We" aren't. The French are. But, I perfectly understand why they would want to accommodate ALL parents not just traditional families' parents. The real question should be, "why does it bother anyone?"

#33 | Posted by danni Maybe because the civil and criminal penalties for speech in Europe should be a strong warning. Say something Muslims don't like in several countries in Europe, even if true, can get you put in jail or fined. Use the wrong pronoun in Canada, you can get fired. I am against the use of force buy any one with out the consent of the governed, so why are progressives endorsing bans on ideals or speech?
