LGBTIQA+ politics has suffered its biggest setback since marriage was de-gendered in 2017.

Within hours of news breaking that government forms required mothers to be referred to as “birthing parents” in some hospitals, Government Services Minister Bill Shorten tweeted that he had stopped the nonsense.

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

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

Shorten’s intervention comes after new mother and media personality Sall Grover revealed she had been forced to declare herself a “birthing person” on a government form for Medicare.

The forms which comply with rainbow political ideology were introduced as a trial in the dying days of the Morrison government.

It’s not often the political demands of what Grover described as “fringe activists” are denied.

Labor knows the public is sick of LGBTIQA+ woke gender fluid ideology and is no longer prepared to defend aspects of it.

Sadly it is still taught in schools and it is Labor policy to provide taxpayer-funded sex change surgery to “young people” (it’s not clear if this includes minors), despite growing calls from medical experts for caution.

Shorten, who once described people who did not support the redefinition of marriage as “haters who come out from under rocks”, today committed what LGBTIQA+ political activists would consider to be an act of bigotry in binning the rainbow “birthing parent” forms.

LGBTIQA+ ideology believes that “men” can have babies and that it is bigotry for parents, doctors and midwives to “assign” a baby’s gender at birth.
