The corrupt, left-wing National Education Association is going full woke by changing its internal language from “mother” to the more suitably woke “birthing parent.”
Of course, there is no such thing as a “birthing parent.” Only women can have babies, so “mother” is just fine, thank you very much.
Per Fox News:
NEA’s resolutions, called new business items (NBI) represent the teachers’ union’s opinions and beliefs. Many resolutions were voted by the Representative Assembly (RA), comprised of 6,000 educators, in Chicago as well as virtually. The resolution on the language change – NBI 63 – was ultimately not brought to a vote.
“Using this contract language, members need not worry about how a Board of Education/solicitor defines ‘maternity leave,’ ‘mother,’ and/or ‘father’; the language is an inclusive reflection of how LGBTQIA+ members build families,” the proposed resolution said.
Of course, the idiotic resolution caused a few interesting comments on social media.

I'm not sure who needs to hear this — but men CANNOT get pregnant. https://t.co/ofJeBk5LSo

NEA is pushing to change "mothers" to "birthing people."
It won't matter what word they use if America's kids don't know how to READ.https://t.co/stScXUnAo5
