Species Advocates Want To Make A Big Thing Out Of New Passport Rules

US Passport to report parents 1 and 2. Gay-rights proponents are cheering and some conservatives are up in arms after the State Department said it would replace the words “mother” and “father” on U.S. passport applications with gender-neutral terms. 

Instead of “mother” and “father,” the forms will read “parent one” and “parent two.”

A statement on the agency’s website called the changes “improvements” that are being made to provide a more accurate description “of a child’s parents and in recognition of different types of families.”

“Only in the topsy-turvy world of left-wing political correctness could it be considered an ‘improvement’ for a birth-related document to provide less information about the circumstances of that birth,” Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, said in a statement.

Species advocates upset want to go more species neutral.
