"Happy You Day": Introducing Gender-Neutral Mother's Day Cards

Just in time for mother's day, UK supermarket chain Waitrose has the perfect card for all the gender-neutral mothers out there!

"Happy You Day" reads the card included in the retailer's Mother's Day range, reports The Sunday Times.




The company says the cards are aimed at "broadening out who the cards can go to, whether it's grandmas or transgender mums."

Waitrose has been joined by other retailers, including Scribbler, whose Mother’s Day offerings include 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 calls by some trans activists to rename Mother’s Day. Suggestions include Guardian’s Day and Carer’s Day. -The Sunday Times

Several schools, including High Bank School in West Yorkshire and Consett Junior School in Durham have changed the holiday to "Special Person's Day" or "Mother's and Special Person's Day."

Pick a gender, any gender, or don't

Waitrose's "Happy You Day" card the latest gender-neutral accommodation in what has been a year of change. Canada, for example, passed a bill in February to change the lyrics of its national anthem so that they will be “gender-neutral” - replacing the lyrics “in all thy sons command” with “in all of us command,” according to CBC News. Former member of the Canadian House of Commons Mauril Bélanger first introduced the legislation in 2016.

Meanwhile, last week Campus Reform reported that the Kennesaw State University LGBT Resource Center has conveniently produced a new pamphlet that adds “ne,” “ve,” “ey,” “ze,” and “xe” to the list of gender neutral pronouns.

The “Gender Neutral Pronouns” pamphlet, a copy of which was obtained by Campus Reform, tells students that “some people don’t feel like traditional gender pronouns fit their gender identities,” and thus lists alternatives that students can use instead. -Campus Reform



The pronouns are accompanied by a conjugation chart listing how they should be used as a subject, object, possessive, possessive pronoun and reflexive.

For example, to refer to a student who identifies as “ne,” one could say “Ne laughed” or “That is nirs.”

To refer to a student who identifies as “ve,” the pamphlet explains that one would say “Vis eyes gleam” or “I called ver.”

The pamphlet - which lists seven different types of gender neutral pronouns - encourages students to ask their friends, classmates, and coworkers how they identify before making any assumptions.

The guide also reminds those who might assume one's gender that students "may change their pronouns without changing their name, appearance, or gender identity." Talk about low effort. In order to remedy this, Kennesaw State recommends that people's preferred pronouns be re-confirmed during regular "check-ins at meetings or in class."

“It can be tough to remember pronouns at first,” the guide notes. “Correct pronoun use is an easy step toward showing respect for people of every gender.”

Searcher:
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to exercise my thoughts about garbage such as this:.

My mother has a vagina and breasts
She's not anything but my Mother
She has a name, I don't use it, she's my Mom

I came out of my mothers vagina, then took my first breath and check this out:
my mother didn't kill me before this occurred
to her, at this stage, I was a burden upon her, but one which she was happy to carry

of course, she wasn't happy, later on in life, with some of the burdens I heaped upon her but
with her guidance, as a mother and a human, she helped me get through these issues and that allowed me
to get to where I am today

My Mother is a good person
My Mother taught me to be a good person

to me: The title Mother has meaning and value. It's NOT an arbitrary title.

Mom? I hope I've made you proud

To the rest of you asshats who are trying to take all that away from me:
I'll thank you to fuck off and go away


rant over

You can't get there from here.

We never get a "follow up" on stories like this in the OP.

Does anyone want to bet the sales figures were dismal?

And what is up with greeting cards anyway? Talk about a total waste of money.
Everybody makes a nice noise when they get one, then toss it to the side in about 10 seconds. Then they feel guilty about throwing it away.
To me, the ideal "card" is blank cardstock and you write a message from your heart to the recipient. Perhaps print a photo on the cover or include one, that is significant to you and the recipient.
Of course, that would take thinking and actual work, so not likely.

Doesn't take a lot of effort for proper cards to get replaced in front of this trash ... or for this trash to get put in someone's basket and then relocated to behind the products on a top shelf where it'll be lost 'til next inventory day. No theft or destruction needed, but when no profit is seen, the message is clear

Why bother? The urban-ites have been totally brainwashed and there's no saving them.

A generation is only 20 years ... it's never to late to start your own indoctrination process on the next one.
