British supermarket re-names Mother’s Day as You Day in bid to be more gender neutral

2A SUPERMARKET has started selling gender-neutral Mother’s Day cards – as Happy You Day -  in an attempt to be more “transgender inclusive”.

Waitrose has dropped the M-word from some of the Mother’s Day cards it sells and replaced the wording with “Happy You Day” as part of its range on offer to shoppers.

Waitrose said the move was aimed at “broadening out who the cards can go to, whether it’s grandmas or transgender mums”.

Traditional cards are still sold by the upmarket grocery chain.

The supermarket is not the only retailer to have offered a wider selection of cards than the traditional Mother’s Day cards.

Scribbler offers a “Two mums are better than one” card for same-sex couples and a “Dad, thanks for being the most amazing mum” card.

The changes come after some trans activists called for the renaming of Mother’s Day. Suggestions have included Guardian’s Day and Carer’s Day

It's only more commercialization - trying to sell as many kinds of cards to as many kinds of people as the manufacturer thinks might exist to buy the cards on any "special" calendar day.

Someone contributed an egg and carried the child through preganancy. That is the Mother.

Someone contributed a sperm. That is the Father.

Someone may have adopted a child with the intention of raising the child, they also perfectly qualify for being a mother or father.

Trying to remove the names "mother" and "father" is a ridiculous concept based on a complete failure of intelligence.

Ahhh, good ole liberal logic. Homosexuality is absolutely genetic but gender isn't. Go figure.

So can we change "Black History Month" to just "History Month" to be more inclusive? I didn't think so.
