Default PC gone stark raving mad!

Well, if this has already been posted I haven't seen it, so if so just delete. Anyway, the latest from the great state of NY is that when filling out financial aid forms the words MOM and DAD or any synonyms are now forbidden. The new and authorized terms are Parent 1 and Parent 2. And being as it is NY one could suppose that Parent 3 and Parent 4 might be possible. This was on Fox news early this morning.

Just remember that for some unfortunate people there is confusion between father/uncle/brother/cousin as they could all be the same person, so be grateful you have a choice.

Just disregard the burocrats and write what you want to write. You stand a chance of being right. They never will be.

And remember that political correctness is always wrong.

I lost all sense of PC when a "Flagman" became a "Flagger".

"Danger Will Robinson!" How will #1 know for sure they aren't really #2, if #1 fills out the form before #2 fills out the form before #1 gets a chance to see it before #2 does?

As a taxpayer in NY, I can tell you without reservation that I will never refer to Mrs. Kozmic or myself as parent # anything. If I ever get anything from the state addressed to "parent (insert # here)" it will find it's way to a gender-neutral, PC approved, garbage can.

What little Suzy has or doesn't have for parents is not my concern and I wish them all well but my kids have a mom and dad and have since long before the PC folks decided their agenda trumps everyone else's status quo.

I guess parent 1 is the one that wears the pants in the family.

I'll let you married couples fight it out.

I don't care if I am listed as number one or number two unless I'm in a car accident...then I sure don't want to be listed as party 1.

Rodney Dangerfield once said, look out for #1 and don't step in #2. I have no information on 3,4,5, etc.

So is parent # 1 better than #s 2, 3, and 4? That's not very PC of you NY.

It would funny if it weren't so pathetic.

Sounds like this could lead to some family war calls when being #1 or #2 becomes a matter that gets out of hand.. Could the "victim" sue the state for inciting violence?

Why do regular normal good people have to be considerate of everybody's feelings but nobody has to be considerate of us, you know the great majority of this country, with a mother and a father, which BTW is the only way for anybody to walk the planet . We need to be placed on the endangered species list. Another generation like this and the culture that built this country will be extinct.

I am sick of hearing about the person heading a committee (life is full of committees these days) being called the chair rather than the chairman.

A chair is something we sit on. If some PC person of either gender, or of neutral gender, or even a gender bender (I'm not homophobic, honestly - a friend of mine knows someone who might be homosexual, but on the other hand might not be) wants to be a chair, we should all sit on him/her/it.

After that it should be mandatory to manacle them in our mansion in whatever manner we can manage, manually throw them down a manhole, followed by a load of manure. Then we can have a manicure while we eat a mandarin while we listen to the music of a mandolin.

Does parent #1 stand up when doing #1 or is that parent #2. Who decides who is #1 or #2?
