Pelosi uses list of gendered terms after introducing resolution to oppose them

Last month, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi proposed a series of new House rules, including banning the use of gendered terms.

Instead of using “he” or “she,” members would be required to use “member,” “delegate,” or “resident commissioner.” 

Similarly, instead of saying “father” and “mother,” members would say “parent;” “brother” and “sister” would be replaced with “sibling.” 

But, in a speech Wednesday, she seemed to throw everything in that proposal away, doing the exact opposite. 

“I stand before you as a wife, a mother, a grandmother, a daughter,” Pelosi said while speaking on the House floor to demand Trump’s impeachment. 

The resolution Pelosi proposed just last month read: “Strike ‘father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, first cousin, nephew, niece, husband, wife, father-in-law, mother-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, stepfather, stepmother, stepson, stepdaughter, stepbrother, step sister, half brother, half sister, grandson, or granddaughter’ and insert ‘parent, child, sibling, parent’s sibling, first cousin, sibling’s child, spouse, parent in-law, child-in-law, sibling-in-law, stepparent, stepchild, step-sibling, half-sibling, or grandchild.’” 

Seems like the idea is easier said than done, Nancy.
