Why not add “Parent 3”, “Parent 4”, etc., while they’re at it?

Hoe do I know who Parent 1 and Parent 2 are? Is Parent 1 the mother or the father? I don’t want to insult them by choosing pecking order. Besides the Commandments say to honor them. This violates my civil rights. I am OUTRAGED!

Thank goodness for my government. While coping with unemployment, mortgage debt, paying my children's college, fighting some land use regulation issues at the federal level on my property, three major health issues, and my wife's international travel woes to Cardiff, This gender neutral passport thing was at the front of the list.

Just round em all up and beat them senseless, which won't take more than a dirty look considering how close to senseless they already are.

So now we can change our genders back and forth as often as we like! Cool! Maybe we don’t even NEED to pick a gender any more!!!

(But I bet we still have to choose a race. Liberals are sooo funny that way.)

Just two???

What if me and my partner adopt a gayby and then he takes up with someone else and I take up with someone else and we all want to be parents? It’s not fair (stamps foot).

Which one is the father and which is the mother?

Or Pat
Or Casey
Or Jessie
Or a thousand other gender neutral names....

THe word parent is just as biased as “mother” and “father”.

It should be changed to “legal guardian 001” through “legal guardian 009”

How would Michael Jackson have filled it out for his various Prince Jacksons?

He was not the sperm donor, and contracted out for the egg donors and surrogate moms.

IOW, he just bought some human babies on the open market.

Was he Parent 1? 2? 3? 4?

Double ping. Destruction of the family, pushing disgustingly sick and evil sexual perversion, and turning everyone into a sheep who just baas and accepts increasing humiliation and tyranny without fighting back.

Destruction of the natural family is vital to their interests.

In Brave New World (I have to find a copy and read it again), the words "Mother" and "Father" are disgusting dirty words that are never uttered. Aldous Huxley was actually surprised a few decades after he wrote Brave New World (in the 30s) that so many of his fantasy had come true.

My 14 year old was asked in his “health” class to write a report about “the history of AIDS in Australia,” (different children were given different countries/continents) and then the class was told to NOT MENTION homosexuality, gays, sexual preference, etc in writing their histories.

Can you believe it? Talk about ignoring the elephant in the room. I don’t even think the “gay community” would agree with this.

I was joking with him yesterday; I told him to write that a “certain unmentionable group of men started showing strange lesions in 1980 in Australia”

He also joined the Republican Club on campus yesterday. . .not unrelated. . .leftists try to whitewash history and even my 14 year old could see it. . .

No doubt its part of the stimulus program -- can you imagine how many forms, computer programs, blank passports, etc. need to be replaced or updated? And there are probably 10 bureaucrats whose sole job was to figure out what to replace father and mother with, and who are now busy examining every form in the entire office to see what else they should change. Pretty soon you'll have to fill in your Parent 1's pre-union identification name on some other form, since you won't be able to use your mother's maiden name.

Why not just “egg donor” and “sperm donor”?
Since the State is now raising most of the kids anyway, wouldn’t that be the most Communist-friendly way of putting it?

I don’t understand this gender confusion business,although I’m sure that there are legitimate cases of it.At any rate,there should be no confusion on my part,nor any other woman’s.If you can give birth,then you are a woman.There’s nothing “gender neutral”about it.If you can urinate standing up,then you are a man.How can this be confusing?How can people be “gender neutral”?

(PS I think you have your mind in the gutter!)

"Parent" implies some kind of "rights" over the raising of the children.

I thought the new liberal term was "Breeder 1" and "Breeder 2."

My brother who’s stationed in Germany just told me the same thing is happening (has happened?) in the EU.

It sure looks like the Communists — using gays as pawns — have succeeded in destroying/diminishing the family unit. They started out by sneering at larger families and now we’re reduced to this.

Can not one normal thing be left alone for one day? Apparently not, every day the Communists march on.

I’m pretty sure “egg” and “sperm donor” terms aren’t gender neutral enough. Something like “Round and Inviting” and “Tiny White Wiggly”, perhaps....

If you can urinate standing up,then you are a man.

For the record: women can urinate standing up too. It's just not recommended.
