The Washington Post quoted official sources in the State Department on January 7th as stating that U.S. passport application forms will be made "gender neutral" by removing references to mother and father in favor of language that describes one's parentage somewhat less tenderly as Parent One and Parent Two, "in recognition of different types of families."
You may read Parent One, Parent Two to replace references to mother, father on passport forms, Sheridan, Mary Beth and O'Keefe, Ed, Washington Post, January 7, 2011. A one-time registration may be required.
