California city just BANNED all of their ‘gendered language’, like “manhole” cover…

A city in California has just banned all of their ‘gendered language’ in order to make it genderless language:

FOX 8 – 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.

No, that doesn’t mean a whole city will be without committee leaders and law enforcement. It means that words that imply a gender preference will be removed from the city’s codes and replaced with gender-neutral terms, according a recently adopted ordinance.

The city voted Tuesday night to replace gendered terms in its municipal codes, like “manhole” and “manpower,” with gender-neutral ones like “maintenance hole” and “human effort.”

The item passed without discussion or comments and was not controversial, said Berkeley City Council member Rigel Robinson, the bill’s primary author.

The fact that it passed without controversy just shows how far gone the liberal city of Berkeley is these days.



But they aren’t just banning gendered titles and names. They are banning gendered pronouns too:

The revised city documents also will replace instances of gendered pronouns, such as “he” and “she” with “they,” according to the ordinance.

Berkeley’s municipal code currently contains mostly masculine pronouns, the office of the city manager said in a letter to the mayor and city council.

“Having a male-centric municipal code is inaccurate and not reflective of our reality,” Robinson said. “Women and non-binary individuals are just as entitled to accurate representation. Our laws are for everyone, and our municipal code should reflect that.”

“Non-binary individuals”…eyeroll

Did you notice that they are intentionally replacing singular gendered pronounces with neutral pronounces that are PLURAL? So just like they are ignoring science when it comes to gender, they are apparently ignoring grammar too.

This transgendering of the language goes far beyond political correctness into the levels of absurdity. These gender nazis won’t stop until they’ve eradicated any indication of ‘male and female’ in the language. And it probably won’t stop with municipal codes. Next up, the transgender Bible where God created two binaries in the Garden of Eden. Ugh.

  1. Good to know Berkeley is so well governed they now have the time and resources to enact important legislation like this /s

  2. There is a silver lining. If there are no hes or shes in Berkeley extinction cannot be far off.

  3. Good to see they have their priorities straight. It’s only a matter of time before California implodes.

    1. When they do implode, the good people of this nation had better hit the streets, demanding that NOT ONE DIME of taxpayers’ money will be used to bail them out of their stupidity!

  4. They also decreed that no new residences will be allowed to have pipes for natural gas. They’re quite proud of this “pioneering” change to prevent global warming.

    Of course, most of that electricity comes from natural gas or less clean sources, and gas is significantly cheaper for many people than electrical. But virtue signalling is more important.

    Petty little dictators.

    1. Well, pipes are metaphors for male sex organs, so they can’t have it only one way. And “natural gas”… totally a masculine reference.

  5. “Having a male-centric municipal code is inaccurate and not reflective of our reality,” Robinson said. “Women and non-binary individuals are just as entitled to accurate representation. Our laws are for everyone, and our municipal code should reflect that.”

    It does you dolts.

    “Mankind” does not mean just the men. It means all humans. Literally nobody is being inaccurately represented, or misrepresented. And if you think you are, then I dare you to go violate the municipal code right now and then tell the judge it doesn’t apply to you because it’s “male-centric” and therefore doesn’t apply to women.

    Morons.

  6. Finally! Berkeley will be like a heaven on earth once they spend the time, money, and effort to eliminate gender from their official documents. Lucky them.

  7. You know you live in a great freaking country when things are so good that this is the type of *hit you’re worried about. Bunch of freaks out there.

  8. Using “they” “their” as a gender neutral pronoun isn’t new. When I was in high school in the ’80s, my English teacher taught that it was an acceptable shorthand alternative to using the wordy “he or she” “him or her”.

  9. All government staff got the memo…Maybe future training will be needed and waiting for the first law suit cause the guys “I” work with kept calling it a man hole…it was offensive!

  10. The city voted Tuesday night to replace gendered terms in its municipal codes, like “manhole”

    Good. Any guy here disagreeing with banning that term?

    1. Or nothing better to spend their money on because changing everything out will most likely cost a fortune.

  11. I’m really bothered by the fact that Berkeley isn’t taking this a step further. They should include anything that has references to pets. Pets are people too y’know.

    So, no more catspaws, no more dog-eared books, no more segregated food at the grocery store (and not just desegregated by pet species, but desegregated from the rest of the human food as well), no more birds-eye views of things, no more directions as the crow flies, etc etc.

    ACCURATE. REPRESENTATION.

    INCLUSIVITY.

    Am I right folks?

  12. ‘The item passed without discussion or comments and was not controversial…’ Well, then.

    1. They probably were in shock that this was the matter of the day, instead of things like people peeing, pooping the sidewalks, used needles and condoms flooding the streets..you know, other menial, irksome fluff.

  13. I would have to take a lot of drugs in a short amount of time to reach the level of stupidity that they just displayed with little to no effort.

    1. Unfortunately they have the nads to make us take the loony left as part of the deal.

      It might be worth moving there then, however.

  14. This is manifestly insane. I wonder which portmanteau-laden jargon will be created to manage all of these many labels that manifest as they continue to try and immanentize the eschaton. Will they manacle the language entirely, or just endlessly demand that we be reprimanded for our command of the language?

      1. We may all have to learn another language like Spanish just to get around these idiotic new rules.

  15. One more California armpit city that I won’t visit! Good grief! We are born make and female. Don’t get your panities in a wad because of a title or name of something! Mercy……..CA is lost!
