Leftist Democratic lawmakers look to apply their radical gender ideology to the U.S. legal code after the introduction of a new measure this week to alter the law.
Reps. Summer Lee (D-PA), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Robert Garcia (D-CA) issued press releases on Tuesday. The trio announced their support for making the law of the land “gender neutral” by slashing instances of gender-specific wording.
Lee called it “unacceptable” for the U.S. code in 2023 to uphold gender-related “social structures” and bolster “gender stereotypes and social discrimination.”
Words matter—especially the words that form the foundation of our country’s rule of law.
I'm proud to introduce the Equality in Our Laws Act, which enshrines gender equity in the US legal code by replacing masculine generics with gender-neutral language. https://t.co/ErqEieqXlz

Of all the issues the nation is confronting, including a president that apparently pocketed millions in foreign bribes, this is what keeps Democrats awake at night.
Lee explained that “The Equality in Our Laws Act will enshrine gender equality into the U.S. Code and send a clear message that we won’t be silenced by the right wing politicians, judges and media goons waging a full-on assault on women and queer folks.”
So, there you have it. Laid bare for all to see are the motivations behind these proposals. Gender equity and the LGBT lobby.
According to the press release from Preeelsy’s office, using “masculine generics” promotes harm to the oppressed. It cited a 2015 study that concluded using a masculine job title resulted in men being perceived as being more qualified for the position.
Lee claimed that U.S. laws and the Constitution do not protect all people. She added that federal statutes “intentionally wrote out women, Black, Brown, queer and marginalized folks.”
Proponents further called for “gender-neutral revisions” to be applied to the law. These are likely the same people who want to neuter gender from language completely in ways such as calling women “birthing persons.”
Undoubtedly they prefer the highly unpopular “Latinx.”
Interestingly, exceptions were made for such laws as the Violence Against Women Act and the establishment of the Women-Owned Small Business Federal Contracting Program. These programs presumably include men pretending to be women.
Perhaps these three Democrats are doing the will of the people who sent them to Washington. It is far more likely, however, that there are many more pressing issues back home than gender-related wording on a dusty federal document.
