It’s The EQUALITY Thing, Stupid

wedding_bandsCan you see it now? “I now pronounce you Spouse and Spouse.” Or “Married Person 1 and Married Person 2.” How ’bout “Frick and Frack”?

Don’t think so? That’s not too far down the pike if yet another brain dead DemoLib legislator- is there any other kind? – gets her way.

Rep. Lois Capps (Dumb bell-CA) has drafted legislation to remove the words “husband” and “wife” from federal law. Why? Because they’re – gasp! – “gendered terms.”

Whatever that means.

No matter. In the DemoLib lexicon of oh, for crying out loud – which is pretty much every DemoLib lexicon – a “gendered term” is a hanging offense.  Like, “S/he just committed a gendered term! Off with his/he/it/Caitlyn’s/whatever’s head!” After all, these are some of the same brain surgeons who are proposing single stall “trans-neutral bathrooms.”

Then again, we wouldn’t to offend the tender sensibilities of any lib who wouldn’t know a “sensibility” if it walked up to them on a street corner and shook hands, would we? And while we’re busy destroying the fabric of society and chewing up every last shred of sanity like army ants in a sugar plantation, might as well go full-throttle, eh?

Back to those awful gendered terms. Capps has actually introduced legislation to eliminate those dastardly words and replace them  with more “gender neutral” terms. Like “spouse” or “married couple.”  To paraphrase James Carville: It’s the equality thing, stupid.

I am not making this up.

Said Capps:

“The Amend the Code for Marriage Equality Act recognizes that the words in our laws have meaning and can continue to reflect prejudice and discrimination even when rendered null by our highest courts. Our values as a country are reflected in our laws. I authored this bill because it is imperative that our federal code reflect the equality of all marriages.”

If anyone’s surprised by this, I have just three words for you: You shouldn’t be. Capps’ bill is simply the natural outgrowth of the Supreme Court’s recent ruling on same sex marriage. She says so, saying her bill was aimed at taking the next step, which is to ensure the United States Code “reflect(s) the equality of all marriages.”

Here’s an idea: If we’re going to play the Get Rid of It game, let’s do it right. Why stop at eliminating “husband” and “wife”? If the country’s going to start down that slippery slope, why not also deep six “man” and “woman”?  Boy and girl. Mother and Father. Aunt and uncle. Niece and nephew. All masculine names. Goodbye Alan, Robert, Paul, Joseph and James. All feminine names. Sayonara Mary, Sheila, Katie, Sue and Beatrice. Superman. Wonder Woman.

And when it comes to bathrooms, well, shoot. Why not just get rid of ’em altogether? I mean, who needs privacy in the brave new world of gender-neutral genderless-ness? Ditto men’s and women’s locker rooms. Dressing rooms. Shower facilities. Footwear. Clothing. NFL teams. Anyone for genderless aftershave/cologne/perfume?

I mean, since it’s the equality, stupid and gender is now irrelevant, what the heck?
