If you haven’t figured it out yet, there is a war going on against traditional marriage and gender roles. And now, even the words “husband” and “wife” are under attack.
This particular attack comes from Democratic Representative Julia Brownley of California, who recently introduced the “Amend the Code for Marriage Equality Act.”
Now, I know what you’re thinking… We already have “marriage equality,” as same-sex marriages have now been legal in the U.S. for a while now.
However, according to Brownley, equality isn’t all it should be.
In a news release, she said, “Although the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Obergefell v. Hodges that same-sex couples have the right to marry, there are many instances where the U.S. Code does not respect that constitutional right.”
To change that, she insists that we start with using words and terminology that reflect that.
And that means getting rid of terms such as “husband” or “wife” in federal law and replacing them with “spouse.” Similarly, phrases like “husband and wife” will be replaced with “married couple.”
This means that legislation such as the Central Intelligence Agency Act of 1949, all the way to military disability deeds from 1955, will have to be rewritten to include these new and apparently not-so-offensive and more inclusive terms.
Talk about a waste of time and federal resources.
But more than that, this proves more than ever that the political left, in their guise of LGBT rights and equality, is simply targeting the traditional gender roles and marriages altogether.
It’s just about as bad as when the 2022 fiscal budget was written to exclude the term “mother,” replacing it with the callous phrase “birthing person.”
It’s also one more reason why the Democratic Party continues to lose the support of the American people.
