When Political Correctness Has Gone Too Far…
Earlier this month, the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, introduced new gender-neutral rules for Congress to promote diversity and inclusivity. Of course, this still has to be voted on, but here's what Pelosi's rules package includes pertaining to diversity and inclusiveness:
establish the Select Committee on Economic Disparity and Fairness in Growth; require standing committees to include in their oversight plans a discussion of how committee work over the forthcoming Congress will address issues of inequities on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, age, or national origin; honor all gender identities by changing pronouns and familial relationships in the House rules to be gender-neutral; make permanent the Office of Diversity and Inclusion to facilitate a diverse workforce that is reflective of our Members and the districts they represent and survey the diversity of witness panels at committee hearings to ensure we are hearing from diverse groups of experts as we craft legislation.
Since the latest movement in being politically correct is to address individuals in a gender-neutral manner, we've heard some pretty impressive (read: hilarious) PC workarounds! Just yesterday as I was scrolling through Facebook, I saw the term 'sugar daddy' updated to 'glucose guardian!' Every time I think of it I can't help but laugh. With that being said, I asked my social media friends to come up with some new gender-neutral slang. They didn't disappoint. Can you think of any more? I'd love to hear from you!

I'm still laughing over something I saw yesterday. Try taking slang terms and make them non-gender specific. For example, a 'sugar daddy' would now be a 'glucose guardian.' Can you think of any?
