National Education Association Seeking to Change the Word 'Mother' to 'Birthing Parent'

Share

The National Education Association is seeking to change the word “mother” to be more inclusive to the LGBTQIA+ community.

Fox News reported the resolution would change the word to “birthing parent.”

The proposed resolution stated, “Using this contract language, members need not worry about how a Board of Education/solicitor defines ‘maternity leave,’ ‘mother,’ and/or ‘father’; the language is an inclusive reflection of how LGBTQIA+ members build families.”

The outlet noted the resolution, NBI 63, was not brought to a vote. 

The news of the resolution sparked criticism on Twitter.

Nicole Neily of Parents Defending Education told Fox News that “normal people don’t use the term chestfeeding or birthing person or any of this stuff.”

She added, “I think it just further underscores how completely out of touch the teachers’ unions…are from the concerns of normal parents.”

Neily called the situation “horrifying.”

Elana Fishbein from No Left Turn in Education argued the left is “arrogant,” adding, “They are dismissive of the family, the parents. It’s beyond Orwellian.”

She continued, “Even in science fiction, I don’t know if you can have such a script of complete destruction of human society.”

Fox News pointed out previous resolutions from the association included support for reparations.

One resolution on racial justice stated, “The Association acknowledges that both historical and current practices have systematically advantaged and privileged people of White European ancestry while disadvantaging and denying rights, opportunities, and equality for people of color.”

Additionally, the association in a resolution called on educators to combat “institutionally racist systems.”

The resolution explained, “The National Education Association believes that, in order to achieve racial and social justice, educators must acknowledge the existence of white supremacy culture as a primary root cause of institutional racism, structural racism, and white privilege.”
