Last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) introduced a new set of rules to be followed in the House.
Among those rules was a list of gender-specific terms that are no longer permitted to be used on the House floor.
The problem… Pelosi has already violated her own rules.
Terms such as mother, wife, daughter, grandmother, etc. have now all been banned on the floor.
But, just listen to Pelosi’s recent floor speech…
The new rules have been absolutely ridiculed on the right as absurd and unnecessary.
This tweet by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is typical of the reaction…
This is stupid.

This is something Democrats are going to continue to pursue, however, as Biden announced this weekend one of the first things he will do once he gets into office is to address transgender bans in sports and bathroom issues.
Because, you know, amid a pandemic and economic crisis, we should be worried about allowing male athletes to dominate women’s sports and use the bathroom of their choice.
