France to replace ‘mum’ and ‘dad’ with ‘parent 1 and 2’ on school forms.

Schools in France will be replacing the words 'mother' and 'father' with 'parent 1' and 'parent 2' on official forms in an attempt to be more inclusive to LGBT+ families. The move forms part of an amendment to a new draft education bill, which the French national assembly has voted on, passing its first reading. It is an attempt made by Emmanuel Macron and his party République en Marche (REM) to tackle discrimination against same-sex parents. Member of parliament Valérie Petit, who tabled the amendment, said it was a way of "anchoring the diversity of families with children in the law".She added: This amendment aims to root in-law children’s family diversity in administrative forms submitted in school. The amendment says: "To prevent discrimination, school enrolment, class registers, parental authorisations and all other official forms involving children must mention only Parent 1 and Parent 2."It follows France passing the marriage equality law in 2013, which enshrined equal marriage rights to same-sex couples. There has been a mixed response from French politicians and people online. Alexandre Urwicz, president of the Association of Homo-parental Families is torn.“At first, we welcomed the amendment because, technically, it allows our families to be included in forms that previously did not allow it,” he said. However, later, he thought the numbers could encourage parental competition. “Who is number 1 and who is number 2?” he asked. Some people think it's a great idea.

I think that is sensible. They could also have a column that says "relationship to a child" where the parent can write, Mother, Father, Care Giver etc. Being inclusive is not that bad but you still need specific information sometimes.

Why is everyone so offended by this? 
1- it’s in France. It does not affect you. 
2- I don’t see anything wrong with it. Some kids have gay parents. Others don’t have any and are raised by a relative.. too many variables. It’s not always a mother and a father. others... not so much. Bobbie Singh@Disclosure24x7 
This is psychologically so wrong so is it going to be like the child has to call parent one and parent to know more father and mother what is wrong with France

France changes ‘mother' and 'father’ to ‘parent 1′ and ‘parent 2’ under new law https://voiceofeurope.com/2019/02/france-changes-mother-and-father-to-parent-1-and-parent-2-under-new-law/ …

Soon in France, parents won't be called mother & father in schools but parent 1 & parent 2 bc they think that saying mother & mother or father & father for gay parents would be confusing for kids..But at home, gay parent's kids probably call them dad & dad or mom & mom so wtf

Question is, Who will be called P 1?
we need to be sensitive about gender discrimination too.  
The amendment is in the beginning stages. There will be a second reading on 19 February and it has yet to be approved by the Senate.
