Because today in 2021, more and more people are now identifying as "non-binary".

Some people claim that they don't quite fit into the categories of "man" or "woman," or “male" or “female", thus identifying as "non-binary."

But what exactly does the term "non-binary" mean?

"Non-binary" is the term used by people who don't identify as either male or female.

Just to break it down for you...

The idea that there are only 2 genders is sometimes called a "gender binary," because binary means "having 2 parts." Therefore, people use "non-binary" to describe genders that don’t fall into one of these 2 categories, male or female.

And that isn't all.

On top of people identifying as "non-binary," some people have claimed that "male" or "female" are not the only genders out there.

They believe that there are over a hundred genders in which a person can identify...

Something that many can find confusing.

And while most people can accept this idea...

Many fear offending those who identify as "non-binary" by using the wrong term.

Well, this is something that will no longer be a worry in Congress as they are now eliminating the use of gendered terms.

"These future-focused proposals reflect our priorities as a Caucus and as a Country – including crushing the coronavirus, addressing economic disparity, combating the climate crisis, advancing inclusion, and promoting integrity in government," Nancy Pelosi began in a statement.

Within the proposed package was the idea of inclusion and diversity.

With Congress being required to “honor all gender identities by changing pronouns and familial relationships in the House rules to be gender neutral."

This means we would see a change in gendered terms being used.

Breitbart reports, in clause 8(c)(3) of rule XXIII, gendered terms, such as “father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, first cousin, nephew, niece, husband, wife, father-in-law, mother-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, stepfather, stepmother, stepson, stepdaughter, stepbrother, stepsister, half brother, half sister, grandson, or granddaughter" will be removed.

They will be replaced with non-gendered terms like "parent."

As well as "child, sibling, parent’s sibling, first cousin, sibling’s child, spouse, parent-in-law, child-in-law, sibling-in-law, stepparent, stepchild, stepsibling, half-sibling, or grandchild".

The package is yet to be voted on, so stay posted for updates.
