That is cute. I have Manwich on the grocery list for this weekend. SWMBO eats it...doesn't care what it's called.
Actually actually, the move away from "Chairman" was because nobody else was Sinatra.Actually, "chair-person" was popularised in the early 70's as part of the feminist movement's effort to transition to gender-neutral words.
They went from "post man" to "postal" and look what happened when they went postal.Could you imagine if "fireman" was replaced by "fire-person." Sounds ridiculous, right? So "fire-fighter" was chosen instead. Same with "postman." Nobody's going to adopt "post-person" so "postal carrier" was chosen instead.
That's offensive to other barnyard animals.Are we all going to cowtow
You will have to personage.Oh no. Now i have to remove Berkeley city codes off my bedtime reading list. How will i MANage?
At a mates place over the weekend and he proudly showed off his new workshop/armature radio set up. I coined the phrase, nice man cave. I was immediately told this is a gender natural space therefor a 'the Sanctuary'.
Poor bloke, must be married.
Anyway, next time use the compliment: "Nice person-cave!"
"Manicure" is code for fixing toxic masculinity.And how will woman get a manicure?
Just bump the thread once a month.Oh, the terrible places I could go with this! But I must refrain, because true humor is ALWAYS family friendly.
Mister, we could use a man like Herbert Hoover again. That would be yuge.Excellent point. We need him back.
My mother was a male carrier!
We'll have to change it from "sloppy Joe" to "Sloppy Jamie" or something.
It's as hilarious as it is sad!More fun from the word police, in San Fransisco...
"The words “felon,” “offender,” “convict,” “addict” and “juvenile delinquent” would be part of the past in official San Francisco parlance under new “person first” language guidelines adopted by the Board of Supervisors."...
-George Orwell, "Nineteen Eighty Four"By 2050 — earlier, probably — all real knowledge of Oldspeak will have disappeared. The whole literature of the past will have been destroyed. Chaucer, Shakespeare, Milton, Byron — they'll exist only in Newspeak versions, not merely changed into something different, but actually contradictory of what they used to be. Even the literature of The Party will change. Even the slogans will change. How could you have a slogan like Freedom is Slavery when the concept of freedom has been abolished? The whole climate of thought will be different. In fact, there will be no thought, as we understand it now. Orthodoxy means not thinking — not needing to think. Orthodoxy is unconsciousness.
