PragerU uploaded a great video on this topic a few days ago. Apparently using the term "freshman" is now unacceptable in some colleges, you have to instead say first year. These people are trampling over the English language as if it means nothing, words like MANkind and huMAN were intended to encompass all people, not just men. It takes a truly mentally ill person to view such words as offensive or non-inclusive just because they contain the word man. Woman also contains the word man, maybe we should just call them Wopeople.

Are women now to be called wopersons?
Should I start calling my friend Amanda "Apersonda?"
I prefer vehicles with personual transmissions.

LOLOLOL!!!!! How stupid! All that crap and piss from the hundreds of thousands of homeless, going into the drinking water, is going to their heads now. Their brains are turning to mush. They're so unbelievably retarded over there.

Is there a term for manphobia?

Everyone who comes into this thread better star this post.

On topic, this is absurd. With all the problems Cali has, rampant homelessness, crime, illegals flooding the state, cost of living skyrocketing, tons of mental illness, this is what they're focused on?


The mentally ill are leading the mentally ill.

Dammit. This is the one song, besides "Wheel in the Sky" by Journey, that will stay stuck in my head all day. Now I'm gonna have to listen to it. On the plus side, 5 years ago they would have been faced with a "cross the streams" decision over this song because a black man sings it. Now, since progressives are no longer secret about their racism, they'll be sure to target his song soon.

man
1. An adult male human.
2. A human regardless of sex or age; a person.


Amazing! We now change the meaning of words from the dictionary definition to placate people who missed that day in school. It's pure pandering to a tiny illiterate portion of society, over the majority of us who are literate.

They better start rewriting the dictionary because a lot of words need changed.

I think you mean to say "womoon" or "persoon". "Moon" is far too patriarchal...

JFK's attempt to change the term is why Trump was on the grassy knoll that day.

Manhole is an offensive term because it contains a demonic word, "man."

Hello covers, my old friend,
I've come to talk with you again,
Because a vision softly creeping,
Manhole covers hurting derp feelings,
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of Manhole covers

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone,
Manhole covers spreading wide,
I miss my step and fall inside
When my thighs were grabbed by a flash of a Berkley dork
That saved my life
And I missed, the Manhole cover.


Simon & Garfunkel, The Sound of Manhole Covers




I've always wondered why Simon and Garfunkle couldn't fit "sword of pork" somewhere in there after "dork".

They probably will, but first they have to go through the list of popular books that are in their library system. Such as:

Hey man person, don't go all hyper-feminist on us! I believe it would be personsterical.

Soon, there will be no more manholes in the city of Berkeley, California. There will also be no chairmen, no manpower, no policemen or policewomen.


............Says the City named after a Man..............

Can't make this up even.

What's next?

No more "manmade".

Good grief!

I hereby demand Berkley change it's name, it is so offensive!
