The Latest Words Being Eliminated By Political Correctness

Apr 25, 2013 -- 10:46am


 It's a dark time for words that contain the word "MAN."  It's like the politically correct Terminator has targeted them or something... with the mission of complete eradication.


Washington state just enacted a law to rewrite ALL their laws, to replace all masculine words with gender-neutral words.


That includes using the word "fisher" instead of "fisherman" . . . "first-year student" instead of "freshman" . . . and "handwriting" instead of "penmanship."


They even wanted to get rid of the word "manhole" . . . but couldn't figure out a good gender-neutral substitute.  I guess "peoplehole" just doesn't have the same ring to it?
