My last post was locked because a jury thought BillForFirstGentleman was sexist.

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by In_The_Wind (a host of the 2016 Postmortem forum).

There is currently a website called billforfirstlady.com, run by a pro-Clinton group. Why would he be a first lady? Wouldn't he be the first first gentleman?

1. IBTL for meta. Isn't it time we went to First Spouse? It's not 1792 anymore.

It's not sexist and it will fit nicely when we have our first openly gay POTUS, should he or she be married.

3. OK, first spouse, that's another point...

 

....but it was deemed sexist, how is calling a "spade a spade" sexism? He'd be the first self-identified male to be the president's spouse.

2. Bill Clinton ain't a "Gentleman".

 

That's why.

4. Mrs. Jackson was not considered much of a "lady" in her day, but she got the title, anyway.

20. Actually she wasn't.

The term didn't appear in Print until it was used to refer to James Buchanan's niece. It was first widely used to refer to Lucy Hayes in 1877

So Rachel Robards Jackson never got the privilege

6. I think having Bill in that role is "sexist nonsense", too.

It should be Jane Sanders in that role!

Some posts are hidden for trivial reasons.

10. Maybe they were genuinely that stupid.

More likely they were alert-stalking.

11. Looks like you got swarmed by the hair on fire peeps.

Ah well, live and learn if you speak of people it must always be gender, race, religion, orientation, and race neutral.

13. That's better

I don't agree he should get that title. But, it should go over okay with those people who call first gentleman sexist.

14. Of course, but it wasn't sexist at all....

 

.....it wasn't forward thinking, being gender-neutral is the future. I agree with you. Perhaps having this image up didn't help being "alert stalked" (from the website).
