Schools in France replace the terms "mother" and "father" by "parent 1" and "parent 2" to be more neutral and make family diversity visible

GAYLES.TV.- The name does not do the thing, but it makes it visible. In French schools they have taken a step forward in terms of family diversity. They will replace the terms "father" and "mother" in the official forms with other gender neutral terms. The goal is to include all types of families. The documents will contain «parent 1" Y "parent 2«.

"We have families in front of the boxes marked in social and family models quite old-fashioned. For us, this article is a measure of social equality ", he pointed Valérie Petit, deputy of La Republic in March (REM), current ruling party.

The measure is not without controversy, despite good intentions the Association of Homoparental Families has criticized that the number that accompanies the term creates a "parental hierarchy". "Who is the father number 1 and who is the father number 2? ", Questioned his president Alexandre Urwicz.

It is clear that it is a moment of social and linguistic change. En Sweden many young people have adopted the neuter personal pronoun «Hen«, and in Spanish the use of the final word -ea is being extended instead of -au -o for the same purpose. We will see how language and society evolve.
