Passports Becoming "Gender Neutral"

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitik

passport-gender-neutral.jpg

In an interesting turn of events, it's been announced that new passports will identify parental units in a "gender neutral" way. Now, guardians will be classified as either Parent 1 or Parent 2, instead of mother or father.

Now, this might seem rather silly to you, but the change is actually a positive step forward in recognizing children and parents in different families, like ones with two mommies or two daddies.

Fred Sainz, vice president of the Human Rights Campaign, called the news "a positive step forward for all American families. It was time that the federal government acknowledged the reality that hundreds of thousands of kids in this country are being raised by same-sex parents."

We totally agree! Yeah for more equality for all!

    this is stupid!!! i dont understand why if its two gay men why cant they be father and father!!!

    like when theyre a couple why do they say "my partner" instead of "my boyfriend" because thats what it is.

    stop with the bullshit, if theyre gonna change anything it should be "mother and mother" or "father and father" and if straight couple, "mother and father"

    parent 1 and parent 2, wtf!!!



  3. 3

    Good God, There are MUCH more pressing and life threatening issues in this world to worry about than being fricken PC …… what a bunch of BS.



  4. 4

    This is pathetic… How the hell did this slip in? So now we shouldn't be called "father and mother"…instead "Parent 1 and parent 2"? So because a couple gays want to adopt a kid (NOTE: Gay parents can't have children themselves…just one reason why they are factually and scientifically inferior to straight couples) means the rest of us simply turn into a number for our child?
    Absurd.
    I give it 50 years before idiots like Perez support a person born as a male, surgically changed to a female, who dresses like a cat, who wants to marry a dog.



  5. 5

    Actually, you're a day or two behind on this already, Perez. Apparently, they didn't clear this with the Dept of State first, and Hillary Clinton very smartly added Mother and Father back. Parent1 and Parent2 will still be there for those who are not lucky enough to have a mother and a father, but at least Clinton knew the American people would revolt if they removed Mother and Father entirely. No reason to offend the majority just to make the gay minority happy.



  6. 6

    That's fucking ridiculous, if they are raised by two mommies then it should have mother and mother or father and father. Get over it ffs !!!!



  7. 7

    This is a way to phase out the importance of fathers and father's rights. Will family court system become gender-neutral? Of course not, they want men to pay up for families they will never be part of. Will selective service become gender-neutral? Nope. Women-only business and education grants? Nope. Stop trying to phase men out in the name of equality! There's not equal about it



  8. 8

    why doesnt it just say mother and mother or father and father?



  9. 9

    so dumb. Thats all I can really say…



  10. 10

    Are you serious? Lol…wow it's all down hill from here.



  11. 11

    This is ridiculous, it should be mother/father, or father 1 and father 2. Why remove the gender of the parent and their title.



  12. 12

    That is AMAZING news!!!



  13. 13

    Now this is infringing on MY rights as a heterosexual. If gay families want to be Parent 1 and Parent 2 that's is fine. But I am a MOTHER and my husband is the FATHER. Don't screw with my stuff just because things aren't going your way. This country is ruined!



  14. 14

    Isn't one always the bitch and the other the butch no matter what???



  15. 15

    this is ridiculous. whoever produced the sperm and the egg that is you ar eyour parent.s



  16. 16

    More PC garbage… Perez has nothing else to do but post garbage like this ugh



  17. 17

    Perez: What you display over an over is that you care nothing about offending the rest of us. I am all for equality but there is something called a mother an father.



  18. 18

    you people are fucking idiots. who cares what a piece of paper says. If being Parent 1 makes you feel any less of a parent, then you're an inadequate parent to begin with.



  19. 19

    It's just to accommodate & stop ball-busting dykes from fighting over which one got to be named the father.



  20. 20

    What a waste of time and effort. My God do we have to make sure not to offend EVERYONE!!! Cause that's impossible not to mention stupid. People need to get over the little things and think about bigger issues!!!



  21. 21

    Unless you are able to change the international standard, all this will do is perpetuate more hatred against gay people and raise flags to unnecessarily question an individual straight or gay at the port of entry. Not all countries are tolerant of homosexuals and in some… gays are persecuted and prosecuted . In addition, in some culture there are no neutral words such as parent or spouse but mother, father, husband and wife are quite international. This maybe acceptable some time in the future but I don't think now is the time…but that's just my opinion/

    Re: PerezTheHypocrite – You need a lesson in the birds and bees! Gay people have the same physiology as straight people, and no one can conceive without gametes. Donated gametes have insured countless gay men's genetics move to the next generation. There is a lesbian giving birth somewhere right now.
    =
    If you are suggesting that anyone, gay or straight, with infertility issues are "factually and scientifically inferior" to those without fertility issues, then you are the absurd, and really mean, person.
    =
    Additionally not every 'mother' or 'father' is a 'parent.' These changes to passport language will go a long way to identifying who is responsible for the child in question.



  23. 23

    YAY!



  24. 24

    @ Batkiss - you do realize that lesbian who is giving birth somewhere was not impregnated by her female partner right?
    It takes a male and a female to produce a child - NO, gays can't produce children without going outside of their partnership. YES, that makes them scientifically and factually inferior.
    You want another one? COUNTLESS studies have shown that breastmilk is extremely important to the development of a healthy child.
    2 gay men - can't produce this milk. Again, inferior.
    Facts > your "feelings" about the situation.



  25. 25

    This is ridiculous. It is silly. This is stupid.
    Say father and father, mother and mother, mother and father, father and mother.
    .
    who the FUCK wants to be Parent 1 and Parent 2. What the hell???? No, Perez. It is stupid. Why don't we all cut off our genitals and become neural eunuchs????
    .
    No wonder the birds are dying… the world's going to hell!

    Re: tiggerchick5 – "No reason to offend the majority just to make the gay minority happy. "

    This might just be the most ignorant quote I have ever heard. You could use this pathetic argument hundreds of years ago against making slavery illegal. It might upset the majority of "white people" to make the minority of black people free.. so no reason to do it.

    Just because a group of people don't make up the majority doesn't mean that they don't deserve the same basic rights as everyone else.



  27. 27

    So which one will be no.1? LOL sorry I can imagine fights happening because of this. But I'm happy yay



  28. 28

    Re: DIE PEREZ HILTON! – They can't label them mother and mother or father and father because they need to be able to tell which is which, hence the 1 and 2, not just parent and parent.



  29. 29

    Re: Robdawg – "who cares what a piece of paper says".

    Apparently, Perez does.



  30. 30

    This is so gay.



  31. 31

    Re: PerezTheHypocrite – I suspect am aware of many more facts about gay people than you. Your feelings on the subject are of decreasing interest to me.



  32. 32

    This is political correctness gone crazy, what's wrong with mother and mother or father and father - it's bloody insane - thank goodness I live in France where the normal people are in power



  33. 33

    Is there a sub-section to list whether you're a pitcher or catcher?



  34. 34

    Re: PerezTheHypocrite – Thats silly. A woman can just go to a sperm bank and have a child on her own by a complete stranger. Only that instead "adopting" you are HALF adopting, since afterall, the sperm is from someone who you might never know in your life, and as you see, there no need of a "father". She can totally be just "parent 1" and zero parent 2. So no, gays are not inferior for not being able to have kids. Many women naturally cannot have children and they adopt, and not cause of that as a straight couple they are inferior to other straight couples…



  35. 35

    And all those saying "omg it says parent and not mother or father"… guess what jackass, you ARE STILL a PARENT either you are a mom or dad. Its just another word that all it takes away is the gender. Not a big deal at all.

  36. aroj says – reply to this


    36

    First of all - mother and father both fall under the category of PARENTS.
    Having an issue with being called a parent instead of mother or father is like being pissed off about someone calling your soda a soda instead of specifying "coke" or "sprite".
    And, they're not changing passports. They're changing passport applications. Just in case you guys have never seen a passport, it doesn't list your parents. They're changing application forms to include parent 1 and parent 2 because same-sex couples were having difficulty filling out the forms.
    To the ignorant individuals commenting negatively on this post - would you want to identify yourself as a mother if you're a male? Or as a father if you're a female? I dont think so. So why should anyone else have to do so?
    Being heterosexual doesn't make you better than anyone else.. or mean you're entitled to anything more than anyone else. You're still just an average fucking human being.



  37. 37

    AWW GOOD!!!
    They should also just be able to have to "father"



  38. 38

    @aroj - no, its not the same. I don't want my gender removed from my parenting. I do not want to be associated with some butch dyke who tries to be a father to a parent. I don't want to be associated with people who DENY A CHILD the ability to have a father AND a mother in their life.
    I'm proud to be in a heterosexual relationship in which my children will have a father and a mother.
    Not to mention, "parent #2" puts a hierarchy to the parenting totem pole. Is parent #2 inferior to parent #1? Why in the world would we need to rank your parenting compared to the other?
    Dont insult my heterosexuality by making me some anonymous number for my own child just cause you like a dick up your ass.



  39. 39

    This is stupid. I gave birth to my daughter and should be listed as her mother, not her guardian, you queers should not be allowed to have children or be married at all. Having children is a privilege, not a right. You should be allowed to have children if you can support them, I believe that people should stop leaning on the government to support them. You queers should stop leaning on the government to approve your lifestyle. Its a lifestyle children should NEVER be exposed to in the first place, why you people are allowed to adopt is beyond me and maybe you say children of same sex couples are happier, PROVE it. Plenty of children by straight couples are happy too. You people are beyond selfish trying to make yourselves seem normal by having children. Newsflash, you people will NEVER be normal what you are doing is WRONG, God may accept you into his house when the time comes but leave children out of your lifestyle.



  40. 40

    I am sick of having to change things to suite queers



  41. 41

    no thats fucking stupid
    what is this world coming to everyone is such a fucking baby



  42. 42

    this is without a doubt one of the dumbest things the politically correct crowd has done.



  43. 43

    wow this country is really starting to suck dick.. all this politically correct shit to add to all political war crap.. it's like damn cant even have fun or play around anymore.. what happen to free country? Now everyone has to watch their mouths and what they wear and everything shit.. i don't see why you're so happy Perez i think it's stupid.. wipe out gender altogether because someones feeling might get hurt.. damn grow some nuts.. it should say father and father or mother and mother.. fuck shit.. i can't like seriously stress enough that there are more..no WAY more important shit in this world…



  44. 44

    Re: jerkstore – No they want men to pay up for family they CREATED and walked away from. Cry me a river.



  45. 45

    This is probably the stupidest thing I have ever heard. WTF is America coming to?



  46. 46

    I find it hilarious that no one agrees with Perez on gay rights, and this is his site. I wonder if he reads the comments. He has no fans.



  47. 47

    This is ridiculous! First of all, "PARENT 1" can't pop out a baby if its a fucking male, ok? The point of the birth certificate is to have record of the child's NATURAL parents. During adoption, the birth certificate changes to state the guardian-parents but the first certificate still exists! I'm so sick of gay rights. Its starting to really get on my nerves. This is stupid. In case gays didn't realize it, an EGG (female) and a SPERM (male) make a human baby and for medical records and documentation's sake, a child needs to know EXACTLY where they come from. A mother and father isn't always a parent. That's two different things. A parent raises the child. A mother or father create the child. That is important to have on record.



  48. 48

    i'd hate to be parent #2… i think it would be better for the gay community if people could handle seeing that a kid has two fathers and learning to accept that rather than keeping people blind to it so they can just ignore that it happens… am i alone in this?



  49. 49

    But who would be "parent 1" and "parent 2" and would parent 1 have more rights to the child than parent 2? Why can't they be listed as "legal guardian", isn't that what they are anyway? Hmm. Whateva.



  50. 50

    Re: bongo – LMAO! Soon, I hope. Because I feel shy asking X)



  51. 51

    Re: corec4194 – Yesss.Couldn't put it better myself.



  52. 52

    What about "father" and "mother" for the majority of families, and "father1" and "father2" or "mother1" and "mother2" if both parents are the same gender? I want to see "mother" everywhere I look when I become one, and I'm sure a gay father or lesbian mother would like the same thing?
