EU Will Ban Words "Father" and "Mother"

The Council of Europe proposes to all its 47 members to ban using of the words "father" and "mother" in official documents. According to European officials, these words has harassment character and humiliate to women.
In Switzerland, the words "father" and "mother" were officialy removed from official documents. Now "father" and "mother are called just "parents".
In 2008 in England was signed the law on human fertilization and embryology act, in wich was first used the word "parents" instead of "father" and "mother". The words "father" and "mother" by the new law of England, are removed from the birth certificate.
In U.S. the words “mother” and “father” will be removed from  passport applications and replaced with gender neutral terminology, the State Department says.
“The words in the old form were ‘mother’ and ‘father,’” said Brenda Sprague, deputy assistant Secretary of State for Passport Services. "They are now ‘parent one’ and ‘parent two.’"
A statement on the State Department website noted: “These improvements are being made to provide a gender neutral description of a child’s parents and in recognition of different types of families.”
