Gender free language does little to promote real freedoms. Berkeley CA is into language changing for whatever purposes.
Berkeley, CA bans gas and man holes. How about person holes? Man holes? Woman holes?
At a Tuesday night city council meeting, Berkeley, CA became the first city in America to ban the use of natural gas piping in new construction. But that was not the only utility-related issue they saw fit to attend to. No, there was another matter on deck: Eliminating the gendered connotations of words like “manhole” in the city municipal code.
No longer will the streets of fair Berkeley be dotted with manholes, nary a womanhole or nonbinaryhole in sight. With Tuesday night’s vote, they have all been transmuted into “maintenance holes,” that highest, hardest glass manhole-cover finally shattered.
