House Democrats have put forward a new proposal that if successful would completely remove the words “wife” and “husband” from federal law. The words would now be replaced by the more gender-neutral word “spouse.” This proposal has led to both sides of the aisle commenting on it.

Rep. James Comer, a Kentucky Republican, argued that the “wokeness” that had infiltrated Congress was “laughable.” He continued to say that the Democrats instead of focusing on creating better jobs or securing the U.S. border were instead trying to appease the “extreme left-wing contingency” and its woke agenda. He argued that this once again was a clear example of “far-left overreach of government.”

Democrat Virginia Rep. Don Beyer argued that the terms “wife” and “husband” might not be applicable to everyone. She added that this all depends on who they are, pointing out that while she personally does not share her pronouns she is happy to respect the pronouns of someone who does.

The Amend the Code for Marriage Equality Act was proposed by Rep. Julia Brownley on July 14, and if successful it would remove both words from many laws, and would instead replace them with more gender-neutral terms including “married person” or “spouse.”

Sen. Josh Hawley from Missouri pointed out that these two terms were not controversial for the vast majority (98 percent) of people but that the 2 percent they were addressing this for were probably radical leftists who were currently in the Democratic Party running it.

Rep. Robert Garcia, D-Calif., argued in his statement that he does not take any offense with any of these terms and that for someone with a “spouse and a husband,” he was happy to call other people by whatever name they prefer being referred to with.
