At a campaign rally on October 30, 2008, as supporters cheered in the background, then-Sen. Barack Obama, confident in the outcome of the upcoming election, infamously said :
“We are 5 days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America”
Fast forward almost five years later, and America continues to feel the effects of this “transformation.”
Case in point, the U.S. Dept. of Education recently announced that it will no longer use the terms “mother” and “father” when collecting information about a student’s legal parents when those parents apply for federal student aid.
Instead of using the words “mother” and “father,” the new Free Application for Federal Student Aid form (FAFSA) will use “Parent 1″ and “Parent 2,” according to the Christian Post.
According to the announcement, the change “more accurately and fairly assess students’ need for aid.”
Secretary of Education Arne Duncan said, “All students should be able to apply for federal student aid within a system that incorporates their unique family dynamics…. [that] provide[s] an inclusive form that reflects the diversity of American families.”
“An inclusive form”… how progressive of us, considering one of the far-left’s primary goals is to do away with all manners of gender identification.
Shawn Gaylord, director of Public Policy at Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (GLSEN), told the Washington Blade , “We’re thrilled by the Dept. of Education’s decision to allow students.. to accurately describe the makeup of their family, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
