Illinois Governor Signs Gender-Neutral Bill for Elected Official Titles to be ‘Congressperson’

Congressman or Congresswoman? In Illinois, it no longer matters! The state’s Democratic Governor, J.B. Pritzker just signed a bill for the titles of elected officials to go from “alderman” and “congressman” to “alderperson” and “congressperson.” The move is to be “more gender-inclusive.”

Co-sponsor and Democrat State Representative Maurice West said, “we see a lot of ‘he’s’ and ‘hims” in the state statute. “And now we have, you know, not just women in office, but we have people who may not identify with any gender” he added. “We want to make sure that our voting and our election cycle process is inclusive for everyone.”

National Review reports:

The change was included in Democratic legislation, first introduced in February, that amends Illinois’s state election code to postpone the 2022 Illinois primary until June.

It comes after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) introduced new congressional rules in January to remove all mention of gender-specific pronouns and terms like “man,” “woman,” “mother” and “son.”

Pelosi’s new rule sparked a backlash from Republicans, including House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy who wrote in a tweet, “This is stupid. Signed, – A father, son, and brother.”
