The French national assembly voted last week for a change in the quality development, where the words "mom" and "dad" should be replaced by "parent a" and "parent two" in all official documents.
the legislative amendment aims to prevent discrimination against likekjønnede parents and their children, and was proposed by president Emmanuel Macrons party Republique a Marche.
- We have families that need to cross off on forms that are designed for quite gammelmodige similar models. For us, it's about social equality, " says the representative of the party, Valérie Petit, to The Telegraph.
Many have been positive to the proposal. Supporters claim that a gender-neutral language in skoledokumenter is a natural step further after the country legalized likekjønnet marriage six years ago.
But not everyone is equally impressed. A number of politicians from the conservative wing have referred to it as "scary" and meant that it does not respect the heterosexual parents, that make up a large part of the population.
Also the association for likekjønnede parents, ADFH, are skeptical of the new concepts. They support a more inclusive language in school, but is afraid that an introduction of the relevant concepts can lead to a hierarchy between the parents.
- Who is "parent a" and who is "parent two", ask the leader of the association, Alexandre Urwicz, according to News.com.
His suggests to rather adopt the third option of "legal representative", in addition to "mom" and "dad".
There is still a chance that the proposal is voted down by the majority in the senate. If this happens will it be sent back to the national assembly for a further evaluation.< p> the Church must take a settlement with homohatet in christian environments
