Tennessee has reportedly reversed a controversial decision to replace the terms “Mother” and “Father” with “Parent 1” and “Parent 2” on official parenting documents.

The Tennessee Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) revised its documents using more gender-neutral language shortly after the Supreme Court approved gay marriage nationwide, Fox News reported.

The office announced Tuesday that it “reverted to the previous form,” following conservative outrage over the wording.

“After receiving feedback regarding a recent change made to the permanent parenting plan form, the AOC has reviewed the procedures and determined that, before making any changes to the form, the AOC should consult with the Domestic Relations Committee of the Tennessee Judicial Conference,” the office said in a statement, Fox News reported. “We have reverted to the previous form and the Committee has been notified.”
