13 Words That Are Even More Offensive And Sexist Than 'Mankind'
Trudeau is on to something...

*ETA: this is parody*

quote:

1) Human

Let's begin with the most obvious one. "Human" is so profane that I feel ashamed even writing it. "Huperson" is a much more enlightened choice.

2) Woman

The greatest trick the Patriarchy ever pulled was deciding that the female gender would be called "woman," thus ensuring that every woman would need a man to be a woman because it's right there in the name. Let's change it to "woperson."

3) Manager

How can we expect wopersons to break the glass ceiling if they are literally being excluded from the word "management"? "Personager" and "personagement" would solve this problem.

4) Commander

Are you sensing a pattern? EVERY position of authority has the word "man" embedded into it. Do you still think the Patriarchy is a myth, you fools?

5) Manatee, Mantle, Adamant, Semantic, Reprimand, Mandible, Manufacture, Manifold. And every other "man" word.

Say personatee, persontle, adapersont, sepersontic, repripersond, personufacture, personifold, etc., instead. It really isn't very cumbersome to make this simple adjustment to 3 or 400 hundred words in the English language. I think we'll manage. I mean mapersonage.

6) Man

Let's not forget that the word man has the word man in it. A man can just be a person. He already has higher wages; he doesn't need his own identity on top of it.

7) Woperson

If a man is now "person" then "woperson" brings us back to where we started with "woman." Better to call a woperson a person and a man a person and everyone can just be persons.

8) Person

Scratch that. Persons may be even more misogynistic than humans. I cannot imagine having to tell my daughter when she gets older that only sons get to be perSONS. Forget persons and let's call everyone "people."

9) People

On second thought, the word "people" comes from the French "peupel," which means "mankind." Now we're running in circles. People, person, man, woman — all of these words dehumanize women. I mean they dewhateverize women. I mean not women. The people with vaginas. I mean not people. OK, look, maybe our only choice is to take Ben Shapiro's suggestion and combine the less offensive parts of "human" and "person" to make a brand new word: "huper."

10) Huper

Ben Shapiro is a sexist monstrosity. Under the guise of creating a gender neutral word, he has only hidden the chauvinism under a thin veil of additional letters. Let's look at this word again: "HupEr." See the problem? The word "he" is stealthily smuggled into our minds, the letters separated only by the word "up" (signifying male superiority), causing us to form anti-female biases without even knowing it. Actually. Wait.

11) Female

How did I miss this? FeMALE. Look at that. "Male" is four letters. "Fe" is two. The majority of the word "female" is taken up my "male." Men don't just manspread on the subway — they do it in our language, too. I think it's clear that all labels assigned to "men" and "women" are far too loaded with sexist assumptions. Maybe it's best just to stick with the pronouns. We can call them "shes" and "hers" (if those are their preferred pronouns, of course).

12) She/Her

Forgive me. How could I not see it? She can't be "she" or "her" without "he." Men have co-opted every word in existence. Literally any word we may use to represent uterus-bearing individuals — and any word we may use to signify anything else — will inevitably have bigoted implications.

13) All language

We must abandon language. Verbal communication is a patriarchal conspiracy. All words, all forms of intelligible speech, are exclusionary, elitist, racist, sexist, and archaic. Let us relegate ourselves to grunting, groaning, and hissing at each other, only communicating our primitive emotions but never expressing a coherent thought. That's basically what people already do on Twitter, anyway.

Manage is not derived from "man" but the latin "manus" meaning 'hand'. "Man" comes from Old Germannic.

So it's not alike at all.

Trudeau. Has an "a" in it. That's 1/3 of man. If "man" is evil, then 1/3 of that in anything must also be evil.

No, it goes like this. God created 'Woman'. She was perfect. But woman was lonely and needed someone to bitch at besides bitching at God.
So, God created 'Man' which = 3/5 of 'Woman.' Man is obviously less than Woman.

To punish man for not being a woman God decided to inflict man with irritations that would plague him forever. Some are:

a. Woman must have 20 bottles of shampoo and conditioner if Man is to find her attractive.

b. Woman will crash Man's chariot when trying to parallel park.

c. Woman will never learn how to use a thermostat.

Yep. Then God realized he fricked up big time when after satisfying her "needs" with the lesser being (man), she went down to the river to cleanse, and from that point forward we have never been able to get that smell off of the fish.
