Parent 1 Parent 2 appear on UK PC passport form

Mail Online 3 October 2011
For decades, passport applicants have been required to provide details of their mother and father. But now, after pressure from the gay lobby, they will be given the option of naming ‘parent 1’ and ‘parent 2’. The change, which is due to take place within weeks, has been made following claims the original form was ‘discriminatory’ and failed to include same-sex couples looking after a child. It has led to claims the official travel document is being turned into a ‘PC passport’. Campaigners for family values said the move ‘denigrated’ the roles of parents bringing up children in traditional families.
…The decision follows the revelation last month that details of the holder’s sex could be erased from all passports to spare transgender people from embarrassment.
