It appears San Diego City Hall has been overrun by a wild pack of militant, man-hating feminists who are hell-bent on neutering the King’s English.
To quote “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgandy,” Great Odin’s raven!
City Hall recently published an edict on bias-free language – part of a larger correspondence manual for city workers.
“Our goal is to encourage bias-free language – language that does not create or perpetuate real or perceived prejudice – in our written and spoken communication,” the city explained in its manual.
So in the spirit of inclusion and neutrality the city directed employees to stop using words like mankind, manpower, gentleman’s agreement and Founding Fathers.
