Yesterday it was announced in the news that they are going to change the wording on passports to parent 1 and parent 2 instead of mother and father, I am delighted!
Isn’t it great when campaigning to your MP actually works? I have been really impressed with my local MP and his communication and I have also received 2 letters from Westminster.
I belong to an online forum of people with children…. you can probably guess which one, and someone started a thread on WYOO about it. It seems most of the people (straight) on there did not like the change! They started arguing about who would be parent 1 and parent 2. Most of them shut up when I chimed it with the fact that I had had to put Stacy down as Charlie’s father on his application, apparently none of them would appreciate being called a father either. Perspective eh? Then the debate headed into the realms of the fact that biological parents should make an appearance on passports, at which point I left the discussion as it was getting too silly (upsetting?)
