A diversity and inclusion training by the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado instructed cadets to use words that “include all genders” and to refrain from saying things like “mom” and “dad.” 

The presentation states, “Some families are headed by single parents, grandparents, foster parents, two moms, two dads, etc.: consider ‘parent or caregiver’ instead of ‘mom and dad,’ … Use words that include all genders​: ‘Folks’ or ‘Y’all’ instead of ‘guys’; ‘partner’ vs. ‘boyfriend or girlfriend.’”
