Obama’s Mother’s Day proclamation: Gender identity?

Can a father be a mother?

Yes, Obama says he can

if he thinks he is some other,

dressed no longer as a man.

In his 2016 Mother’s Day proclamation, President Obama included a new class of mothers in his announcement: transgenders.

“On Mother’s Day, we celebrate those who are first to welcome us into the world. Performing the most important work there is, mothers – biological, foster, or adoptive – are our first role models and earliest motivators. They balance enormous responsibilities and shape who we become as adults, their lessons guiding us through life. Regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or marital status, mothers have always moved our nation forward and remained steadfast in their pursuit of a better and brighter future for their children.”

In 2015 Obama mentioned for the first time “married or single, LGBT or straight, biological, adoptive, or foster.”

Until that time Mothers day used to refer to motherhood, cruel as it may seem to all women mourning their inability to bear children of their own and having been unable to adopt children, seeing them being aborted instead.

Obama has watched too much Monty Python
