Fathers day 2018 is tomorrow (Sunday June 17) and falls right in the middle of Pride month. And so what better time to use a more gender neutral name to ensure that it is inclusive of the wider definition of “family”.
Henceforth, it shall now be known as “Parent 2 day”.
Similarly, Mother’s day shall also be renamed as “Parent 1 day”.
A spokesperson from Stonewall, said “This name change resolve two problems – it removes the final vestige of celebrating patriarchy in our society and also allows family’s with two mothers to have two different days where they can be celebrated.”
Legislation is currently going through to outlaw the sale of father’s day cards and merchandise in favour of more gender neutral gifts.
