Nyc is removing "offensive" gender terms from their documentation and signs.

 

Do you think they had anything better to do and do you feel as dumb as you look?

Just read an article, Berkeley, CA has passed legislation to do the same! 

 

No more manhole covers

They should do away with separate gender prisons too.  Sex-segregated adult or juvenile institutions are obviously separate and in a variety of ways, unequal.… If the grand design of such institutions is to prepare inmates for return to the community as persons equipped to benefit from and contribute to civil society, then perpetuation of single-sex institutions should be rejected .

 

And I hope hey do away with mother's and father's day also.  Replacing ‘Mother’s Day’ and ‘Father’s Day’ with a ‘Parent’s Day’ should be considered, as an observance more consistent with a policy of minimizing traditional sex-based differences in parental roles.

Good question. Hopefully not in Espanol. They could learn some English words.

some of it makes sense,

some of it is stupid

 

like most PC language issues,

it's usually the hyper sensitive that make an issue of it,

but a reasonable person should be willing to make a change when it makes sense.

And I thought liberals loved man holes!

well someone seems outraged they are going away.......

 

I didn't go line by line, but half of it seemed to be justifiable changes,

and half of it seemed to be overly PC nonsense.

You make a fair point however even when it makes some sense it still seems to simply be change for the sake of change. Change to satisfy a small minority who claim to have 'hurt feelings', whatever that means. Change, for the sake of change, is unwarranted and a waste.

if it makes SENSE then it's not change for the sake of change.
