I Predict Riots Over This

Posted on October 23, 2012 8:00 am

France is considering legislation to replace the terms “mother” and “father” with “parent 1” and “parent 2” in all legal documents.

Not a good idea – might offend polygamists.

    Does this mean that after the third marriage they are designated Parent 6?
    Wow, it will make for confusing “forefathers”.

    Parent 1 and Parent 2 are unacceptable terms. The numerical order suggests a higher importance to the one parent, which might cause offense. I suggest replacing the numbers with otherwise unassociated symbols to avoid this problem.

    @2 – So… “the parent formerly known as mother”?

    It’s funny how when the state is looking to collect child support for welfare mothers (who aren’t required to pay one dime to support THEIR kid) they have nooooo problem referring to the guy as “father”, otherwise, it’s offennnnnsive….to someone. The western world might as well just nuke itself, their slow suicide by political correctness is getting old and tedious. Not to mention, it proves that liberalism really is a mental disorder.
    How about referring to “So called parent” 1 and “sperm donor” only when talking about the leeches since normal people have no problem being called ‘mother’ and ‘father’, that’s what they are and hopefully proud of it.

    What are you some kind of wise ass? Everyone knows that 2 ♀s are just as capable of making babies as 2 ♂s. When are you right wing cracker racists gonna learn about basic science!? geez

    This is not allowed!
    Islam teaches one to have high respect for one’s mother.

    A man once asked Muhammud to whom he should show the most kindness. The Prophet replied: “Your mother, next your mother, next your mother, and then your father.”

    The Koran says nothing about “parent 1″ and “parent 2″

    Just wait till parent 2 gets home young man!

    …and how,exactly, would they refer to the biological surrogate mother of a gay couples child ? Parent 1.5, perhaps ?

    The French have invented Preemptive Surrender.
