I believe the problem is with the word "mother".

And "maiden", which implies not only femininity but assumes virginity.

I would not have the patience or wit to do that.  Have we gone so far down the road that asking for your mother's maiden name is offensive?  Berkeley me gently...

 Normally I would have just pointed out the stupidity, laughed,  and moved on. I was tired and miserable yesterday, and when I'm in a mood my pedantic tendencies creep out

She did mention that not all families are traditional and some have two females and some have two males as parents. Mrs. P noted, and  rightly so, that all people have a mother. There's really no way around it. Asking for my birth mother's born name would have been simple, and oh so less offensive, but more importantly, is my Mother's maiden name really a legitimate security question for a federal government to be using in 2022?

Offensive?  You living under a rock out there in Saskatoon? Ask Don Cherry or Wendy Mesley

And who cares? I just want my berkeleying pogey

I really want the $700 2+2 280z, despite being happy with the projects I have. It's within an hour of my parents house in GA, which means it would be a weekend retrieval process and my parents could get it registered in their name so I could get a MI title. Sigh.

I'll be honest, I stopped reading it too- and honestly it's part of the reason I'm less likely than ever to build a challenge car.

I cannot imagine changing the label on an existing database field and expecting everyone to just guess it out, even at a very small scale. If you want to switch from "mother's maiden name" to "parents' last name" or even "parent's last name," then you create a new data field. 

Also, "mother's maiden name" should have died as a security question fifteen years ago.

The idea that someone would expect someone to validate against a field that was named something else when it was filled, and that agents aren't allowed to say what the field was called is insane and built to fail.
