Just regarding the story in the Daily Tele about a form that was part of a pilot program launched in 3 hospitals under the previous Coalition Government,” he tweeted on Thursday.

“When I was informed of this situation yesterday, I instructed the responsible officials they should cease using the previous government’s forms.

“They will be replaced with new forms that use the word mother, not birthing parent, which is consistent with other Medicare forms.”


Goodonya Bill.

SC, where in my initial post to start this thread did I mention any political  party influence ? I imagine there are enough activists in the commonwealth public service for that thought bubble to be put forward to test public reaction.
No mea culpa for me.

But you should've mentioned the fact that it was your mob that sanctioned the "woke" stuff on the forms.   That's a mea culpa.  Tongue

SC, I doubt that thought bubble barely went beyond some middle ranking activist public servant who sanctioned the form. Very much doubt it ever saw the eyes at ministerial level.
As it has just come to public attention I think may not have being around for very long and could have been snuck on the form by a public service activist when the outgoing government was in caretaker mode.Wink

Out in the general community activists and lobbyists are pushing this ideological language through bureaucrats in stealth to the  benefit of trans-identified males to dismantle the meaning of woman and womanhood and detach it from reality. Apparently Services Australia said the term 'birthing parent'  had received positive feedback. Where did they test it..in the City of Moreland ?

You're welcome.Thumbs Up

Greens leader Adam Bandt accused of hypocrisy for calling himself a 'dad of two' on social media while having a woke fit over the term 'birthing parent' being replaced on a form by 'mother'

He is a total A-grader. Can not argue there. But if anyone wants the truth there is a difference between a dad and a father. The latter is the “sperm producing unit” and doesn’t automatically make you the former.

Whose delicate feelings are we supposed to be protecting by not calling mothers, mothers?

When humans who are not females can give birth we will need birthing parent as a description - Not before. I can't wait for that day.Thumbs Up The realisation of radical feminist Shulamith Firestone's dream.


"She regarded pregnancy and childbirth as "barbaric" (a friend of hers compared labor to "gelatiting a pumpkin") and the nuclear family as a key source of women's oppression. Contraception, in vitro fertilization and other medical advances meant that sex would one day be separated from pregnancy and child-rearing, and women could be free. However, Firestone hoped to take reproduction one step further and completely separate it from the female body. She urged the emergence of a new type of artificial reproduction, referred to as the “bottled baby,” through which women could be freed of the hindrance of childbirth, just as men are.[16] Although in vitro is the closest option we have to such a phenomenon, we have not yet reached Firestone's end goal.[34]"

Bandt's seat of Melbourne has a few local councils of which you maybe aware. Melbourne, Yarra and Moreland, all Greens dominated , noted more for their abandonment of Australia Day and other extreme leftist views. Within the electorate the greatest proportion of Melbourne's gay community reside together with the activist university set.  Bandt, does not have to anything right, the electorate would vote for Peter Dutton if he stood as a Greens candidate.
