MADISON — Wisconsin faces a worker shortage crisis, the tragic impacts of a lost year of education and a divisive culture war — all problems leftist Gov. Tony Evers has made worse.
So what’s the Democrat’s No.1 priority?
Gender-neutral options for birth certificates.
That’s right. Businesses around the state are cutting hours, some are shutting down, because they can’t find enough employees. But Evers’ Woke Department of Health Services on Monday announced “parents will now have the option of gender-neutral pronouns and designations” on their child’s birth certificate.
In particular, the option of the gender-ambiguous term “Parent” will be offered, with the traditional Mother/Father designation.
“This change reflects my and my administration’s commitment to gender-neutral terminology and to recognizing that Wisconsin families are diverse and should be valued and respected,” Evers’ boasted in a press release.
It also reflects the governance of a man — excuse us, a gender-neutral person — who has simultaneously turned his back on science and Wisconsin’s actual priorities.
Evers has stubbornly refused to listen to businesses, already hurting by his oppressive and ineffective lockdowns. They have begged the governor to end the $300 weekly federal bonus payment that is making it more enticing for some unemployed to collect generous jobless benefits than re-enter the workforce.
Evers stood silent as teachers union-cowed school districts kept students locked out of in-person learning for more than a year, as already-troubling proficiency levels plummeted.
But the liberal has been quick to push the left’s divisive Woke agenda no matter what — even in the middle of a historic pandemic and unemployment crisis.
You get what you pay for, and unions and the radical left spent a fortune electing their man.
Or their gender-neutral person.
