Connecticut city's elected body eliminates gender pronouns

Recommended Posts

The legislative body in Stamford, Connecticut, has removed gender pronouns from its written rules.

The Board of Representatives voted last week to remove "he/she" and "his/her" from its rules of order, replacing them with specific titles, including president and clerk, the Advocate newspaper reported.

The measure passed unanimously with one abstention.

The change was proposed by three Democrats elected to the 40-member board in November, including Raven Matherne, the state's first openly transgender elected official. It does not change the way the rules are followed or carried out, she said.

"It's an act to acknowledge the members of this board, just as in each of our districts and the city at large, cannot always be described as he or she," Matherne said.

I’ve been thinking about this gender pronoun thing and have been wondering if our AI overlords are the ones pushing the agenda.  Once you get rid of his/her in the text, technically anything could take that position.

 So there are no more Males or Females on Earth? You gotta fit into one of the 2 catagories. While these fruit baskets are making rules why don't they put a ban on asking "are you pregnant" to women incase the woman your asking is just fat. What a soft ass world we are living in.

You got it in one Megaton Jim. And what better way to start on a forum than dropping a piece of truth :)
