With the administration of President Joe Biden now in control of the White House, they now have control over the White House’s website and social media accounts, too. Mere hours after Biden was sworn in, changes are already visible on its website, which now asks individuals their gender pronouns on the contact form.

The pronouns tab on the form, which users are not required to fill in, gives users the option to declare their pronouns as either: “she/her,” “he/him,” “they/them,” “other,” and “prefer not to share.”

GLAAD, an organization that advocates against the derogatory coverage of LGBTQ people in media and entertainment, posted a screenshot of the pronoun options to Twitter on Wednesday afternoon.

Furthermore, while declaring one’s pronouns isn’t required, a person’s prefix is. Alongside the traditional “Mr.,” “Ms.,” “Mrs.,” and “Dr.,” another option provided under the prefix tab is “Mx.” There are also options for “other (please specify)” and “none.”

Conservative political commentator Ben Shapiro poked fun at the Biden administration for the change.

“The administration that values objectively verifiable facts has begun!” he tweeted, sharing GLAAD’s post.

Here is how some other conservatives across Twitter responded to the news:

White House Confirms It Is Looking Into Shutting Down Oil Pipeline Amid Fuel Crisis

Gas Pipeline

The Biden administration confirmed that it is considering shutting down an oil pipeline in Michigan despite the ongoing fuel crisis in the country.

“Revoking the permits for the [Line 5] pipeline that delivers oil from western Canada across Wisconsin, the Great Lakes and Michigan and into Ontario, would please environmentalists who have urged the White House to block fossil fuel infrastructure, but it would aggravate a rift with Canada and could exacerbate a spike in energy prices that Republicans are already using as a political weapon,” Politico Pro reported. “Killing a pipeline while U.S. gasoline prices are the highest in years could be political poison for Biden, who has seen his approval rating crash in recent months.”

Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked about the report during Monday’s press briefing, asking, “why is the administration now considering shutting down the Line 5 pipeline from Canada to Michigan?”

“So, Peter, that is inaccurate,” Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre claimed. “That is not right. So, any reporting indicating that some decision has been made, again, is not accurate. … So, again, I would — it is inaccurate what you just stated, but —”

“What’s inaccurate?” Doocy asked.

“The reporting about us wanting to shut down the Line 5,” Jean-Pierre said.

“I didn’t say ‘wanting.’  I said, is it being studied right now?  Is the administration studying the impact of shutting down the Line 5?”

“Yeah. Yes, we are. We are,” Jean-Pierre admitted.

 

The news comes as gas prices have reached their highest since 2014, when Biden was vice president, and are currently about 50% higher than they were when Biden entered office.
