Some of New York’s most prominent female Republicans derided and mocked Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s proposal to eliminate gendered language from the official House rules.
“Instead of reviving the economy, restoring our Constitutional freedoms and delivering results for the American people, Speaker Pelosi has chosen her debut legislation — which would ban words like mother, sister and daughter,” upstate Rep. Elise Stefanik told The Post. “Obviously she is triggered by the historic number of GOP women elected to Congress who will fire Nancy Pelosi once and for all in 2022.”
Staten Island’s Congresswoman-elect Nicole Malliotakis also had words for the new rules.
“There are millions of Americans suffering, our economy is hurting, vaccine distribution is lagging and Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats are worried about this nonsense,” she said. “Here’s a gender neutral word to describe this legislation: ridiculous.”
Proposed changes to the rules of the House of Representatives would “honor all gender identities” by eliminating such specific terms
