Gender Neutral Words (Double Standard)
In the United Kingdom it's not allowed to say Chairman anymore because it's supposedly sexist , so that's now called Chair.
By the same token, it ought to be "unauthorized" to call a trash collector, trashman (though most of them are men), since that job can and should also be done by women.
I think gender neutral words are alright, though people should be FREE to say what they want, instead of a big government forcing people to talk a certain way (PC = Political Censorship).
What bugs me is the double standard that I still read Motherboard for the computer hardware that has no gender. This should thus be Mainboard.
And also "sistersite" or sister city, sister company. Those all should not have a gender either so it's in line with gender neutral words.
So how come Chairman and such are not allowed, but sister company is alright? It's a blatant double standard.
