The State of New South Wales in Australia will consider whether to ban the terms ‘brother’ and ‘sister’ and other gendered language from official documents and other public communication, according to a Daily Mail report.

The report notes that the Anti-Discrimination Act of 1977 is being updated in the State, and gender activists are lobbying for the changes.

It add that those involved want the word ‘sibling’ to be used instead, and for ‘different sex’ to be used in pace of ‘opposite sex’.

The report also notes that under the same overhaul of anti-discrimination, feminist lobbyists are attempting to enshrine female only areas, services and sports for biological women and girls by denying right of access for ‘transgender-identifying males’.

They also want to be able to lawfully label biological men as male “regardless of those men’s chosen gender identity.”
