Berkeley City Council Votes to Remove ‘Gendered Language’ from City Codes

By WillPowers follow WillPowers   2019 Jul 18, 4:42pm 408 views   15 comments   watch   nsfw   quote   share    

Berkeley’s municipal code will now switch “he” and “she” to “they” and “them” and assume they/them indicates a single individual, “unless the context indicates the contrary.”

“Manhole” would be changed to “maintenance hole,” “manpower” would be changed to “human effort” and “sorority” or “fraternity” would be changed to “collegiate Greek system residence,” according to the ordinance.

Rigel Robinson, the sponsor of the new rules: “Gender-neutral language creates a lot of room to acknowledge that it’s not just men running the country.”

We're all non-binary now...

“Male” and “female” replaced with “People of different genders"
"Men and women” replaced with "People"
“Men or women” replaced with “A single gender”

Maybe they should call them 'Trannyholes' and put wigs on them.

When I met my wife She was working on getting her cosmetology license. Although she has been a stay at home mom since then and never worked in the field.
She has always kept her license up to date, and buys her supplies from Sally's Beauty Supplies. She does her family and friends hair. So the other day I'm telling her about how fags and trans are being shoved down kids throats in school, as early as Kindergarten. And if the Teacher decides your Son is a Girl, you are not allowed dispute that, they will take your kid away. Now normally she would have thought I was just talking nonsense. As I'm sure they don't report none of that on George Ramos owned Univision.(her main source of news). But instead She told me...;

"That's weird, recently when I go to Sally's Beauty Supply, all of the make up models are Men Faces. That's Sick! You know mens faces are a different shape than a womans. Make up on a man's face does not give me an idea how it will look on a woman. It looks like Clown paint on them, it's disgusting."

Then she said Target and other stores don't do that, I'll start buying my supplies at regular stores now.

In the past She would have rolled her eyes while I ranted about the Faggy creep into society. Now She's doing it on her own.

I dont' see how Trump loses in 2020.

Dead serious. Google it.

There are only men and women.

There are no other sexes.

Note that "sex" as a description of sex was deliberately replaced in public discourse by "gender" as a deliberate attempt to de-sexualize the discussion, by none other than Ruth Bader Ginsberg.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg brought gales of laughter at her old law school Friday when she explained why she started using the term gender discrimination instead of sex discrimination.

“I owe it all to my secretary at Columbia Law School, who said, ‘I’m typing all these briefs and articles for you and the word sex, sex, sex is on every page,’ ” Ginsburg said.

“Don’t you know that those nine men (on the Supreme Court)--they hear that word, and their first association is not the way you want them to be thinking? Why don’t you use the word gender? It is a grammatical term and it will ward off distracting associations.’ ”

Call language racist, white patriarchy, and change words. They won’t like Spanish either.

Those people are mentally ill, and trying to change the world to fit their retardations. They are normalphobic.
