gender confusion 4Speaker Nancy Pelosi continues to draw criticism for wanting gender-neutral language in the House of Representatives.

As reported earlier by One News Now, the California Democrat says the intent is to make the new Congress "the most inclusive in history." Evidently, she herself has a ways to go to accomplish that.

"She got confused by her own requirement for gender-neutral language when she started to refer to the 'freshman class,' but then she realized she was using a prohibited term," Representative Michael Burgess (R-Texas) told the "Washington Watch with Tony Perkins" program. "It really was almost comical toward the end of our getting ready for the swearing in."

Speaker Pelosi and others believe the new rules promote inclusion and diversity. Still, Representative Burgess believes there are other, more important things to discuss.

"There's a lot of very serious problems facing our country right now," said Burgess. "This is probably not high on the list of most Americans to be where we need to put our focus."

Spencer Brown, spokesman for Young America's Foundation (YAF) made similar comments this week to One News Now. "We have leftist-run cities failing to get the vaccine in people's arms, we have small businesses dropping like flies – and she's spending time banning words because she thinks she'll get a gold star from maybe the Squad or somebody else," said Brown.

According to Representative Barry Loudermilk (R-Georgia), it's a sign of where things are going with Speaker Pelosi and the House.

"She puts in the rules that you can no longer use gender terms," Loudermilk told the "Washington Watch" program. "Then, the pastor [Representative Emanuel Cleaver (D-Missouri)], who closed the House in prayer used the term 'amen and a-woman.' If this doesn't tell you the direction they're going to go, it's time to wake up."
