Kevin Klein: WORDS MATTER: Use of gender-neutral language raises serious concerns


On March 7, the Government of Manitoba issued the following News Release:


MANITOBA GOVERNMENT INTRODUCES BILL THAT WOULD ENSURE GENDER-NEUTRAL LANGUAGE IS USED IN LEGISLATION


The Manitoba government is introducing amendments to the Statutes and Regulations Act and the Interpretation Act that would ensure gender-neutral language is used in Manitoba’s legislation, Justice Minister Matt Wiebe announced today.


“Removing gendered language is an important step towards ensuring equality and inclusivity for women and the 2SLGBTQ+ community are reflected in legislation,” said Wiebe. “This is a first step in ensuring that Manitoba’s laws and the services Manitobans receive reflect their identities and are inclusive of women, trans and non-binary people.”


I have some serious concerns with these amendments not only because in service of being inclusive of a very small group of people, it excludes the vast majority of people. By altering our laws to reflect the subjective and controversial labels of a progressive movement, we will undoubtedly open the doors to even more radical and extreme left-wing ideology in the future. Permanently encoding the woke narrative into our laws demonstrates that our government is capitulating to the far-left agenda. It won’t be long before the next demand bubbles up.
