Liberal Officials Issue A City-Wide Ban On Dirty “Masculine” Words, Taxpayers To Flip The Bill
In the midst of all of the problems people face in today’s world, one ridiculous city took taxpayer’s money to revamp their codebook.
Why? To remove dangerously masculine words that might offend someone.
I wish this was a joke but sadly it’s just the world we live in…
According to Daily Signal, one of California’s most liberal cities voted Tuesday to revamp its city codebook by replacing terms like “manhole” and “manpower” with gender-neutral terms.
The Berkeley City Council voted to replace around three dozen terms found in the municipal code. Terms like “policeman,” “policewoman,” “chairwoman,” and “chairman” will be changed, as will “he,” “she,” “him,” and “her.”
Rigel Robinson, the Democratic city council member who wrote the ordinance, said the change is necessary because a “male-centric” city code is “inaccurate and not reflective of our reality.”
“Women and non-binary individuals are just as entitled to accurate representation. Our laws are for everyone, and our municipal code should reflect that,” Robinson told CNN.
Berkeley is the latest governmental authority to alter official terminology in recognition of non-binary gender identities.
Last year, New York City Council voted to include a third gender category, “X,” on birth certificates, following the example of the states of Oregon, California, Washington and New Jersey.
German municipalities have taken similar steps to embrace gender-equal terminology. Earlier this year the cities of Hanover and Hamburg made changes to their gender language usage in official texts.
Cities and companies across the U.S., as well as the U.S. military, have in recent years adopted gender-neutral language amid a larger debate about transgender rights. The Canadian government in March 2018 also ordered government agencies to stop using gendered terms like “Mr.,” “Mrs.” and “mother.”
Is there a point where the madness ends? Where They stop trying to reinvent the wheel, so to speak? Let me know your thoughts on these ‘dangerously masculine’ words in the comments below.
