This gender-neutral Mother’s Day card has conservatives enraged


It’s Mother’s Day in the UK, and the British supermarket chain Waitrose is offering a Mother’s Day card on its website that doesn’t use the word “mother.”

Instead, the card says, “Happy You Day.”


In a statement, Waitrose said that the card is for all sorts of parents. Offering it is about “broadening out who the cards can go to, whether itโ€™s grandmas or transgender mums.”

Plenty of cards that use the word “mother” are still available, but conservatives were outraged at the mere existence of the “You Day” card.

This person appears to want a “Happy Uterus Day” card.

The card is no longer available on Waitrose’s site, but other Mother’s Day cards are still there.
