The Biden Administration is Asking for Your Pronouns

One of Biden's first actions was to make sure he asks for your pronouns

On Biden’s first day in office, his administration has already changed the contact form on the White House website. It now includes a question asking which pronoun you use.

This was just one of the 17 executive orders that President Biden signed on January 20th, the day of his inauguration. Many of these orders undo Trump’s accomplishments.

The 15th executive order says, “Strengthen workplace discrimination protections based on sexual orientation and gender identity.”

This statement is pretty vague, especially because federal law already protects people on the basis of sexual orientation and “gender identity.” In the 2020 case Bostock v. Clayton County, The Supreme Court ruled that those protections apply to the workplace too.

The Human Rights Campaign supports Biden’s orders.

Their Wednesday press release said, “Biden’s executive order is the most substantive, wide-ranging executive order concerning sexual orientation and gender identity ever issued by a United States president. Today, millions of Americans can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that their President and their government believe discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity is not only intolerable but illegal. By fully implementing the Supreme Court’s historic ruling in Bostock, the federal government will enforce federal law to protect LGBTQ people from discrimination in employment, health care, housing, and education, and other key areas of life. While detailed implementation across the federal government will take time, this Executive Order will begin to immediately change the lives of the millions of LGBTQ people seeking to be treated equally under the law.”

Mara Keisling, executive director of the National Center for Transgender Equality, also praised the decision.

“On his very first day in office, President Biden is stating clearly that there is no place for discrimination in the federal government. Bostock v. Clayton County was a major victory for LGBTQ Americans. Today’s executive order moves us another step toward a day when transgender people can openly live as who they are without being targeted for discrimination,” she said.

In addition to now asking for pronouns on their website, the White House has also formed a new Gender Policy Council. The policy seeks “to guide and coordinate policy that impacts women and girls, across a wide range of issues such as economic security, health care, racial justice, gender-based violence, and foreign policy…”

Jennifer Klein of TIME’S UP will lead the policy along with Julissas Reynoso, the incoming Assistant to President Biden and Chief of Staff to First Lady Jill Biden.

    Come on man. I will continue to call men, he, women, her, . This is a monstous evil mandate. Gender confused people are already protected from discrimination ; hence it was totally unnecessary move by Biden. Why doesn’t this man focus on grammer instead. There are plenty of people who can’t structure a sentence correctly. GOD help us.

    Please don’t spout off about unity and making our nation less divisive when every single “equality” you are pandering to takes some of my rights and beliefs away from me. Anything BLM does is a peaceful protest but when Antifa takes the Capitol dressed as Trump supporters and it is considered a terrorist crime for President Trump it just shows that Dems only want unity if everyone is willing to give up their rights and beliefs and support all that is immoral and evil. We don’t want the focus to be on BLM and LBTQ etc. Stop wasting our taxes and MAKE JOBS IN AMERICA. STOP KOWTOWING TO THE CHINESE AND COMMUNISM AND SOCIALISM AND HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF PATRIOTISM. WE WANT CHRISTIANITY AND AMERICA TO BE PRIORITIES – NOT EVERYTHING YOU CAN IDENTIFY THAT IS ILLEGAL, IMMORAL, UNEARNED, UNDESERVED, AND UNAMERICAN.

    To make something equal you can’t take from one to give to another. It is robbing Peter to pay Paul and it will never be effective. You can’t make history go away just because you don’t like it. You can’t make people be concerned about ecology when they don’t have a job and money to feed their families. Equality and unity mean the Dems are going to have to make some concessions too or there will be absolutely no chance for unity. Don’t claim Christianity at the same time you openly support murder and homosexuality which are sins in the Bible. Our country was built on the belief in God back when the constitution was written and the reason it is falling apart now is TOO MANY PEOPLE ARE BELIEVING THE LIES OF THE DEVIL. WE MUST HAVE GOD IN OUR LIVES AND LOVE AND PRAY IN OUR HEARTS TO SURVIVE AND PROSPER.

    IT IS A TIME OF SPITITUAL WARFARE AND YOU MUST SEEK GOD’S FORGIVENESS AND SALVATION TO PROSPER.
