California City To Ban Words Including ‘Manhole’ and ‘Policeman’ In City Code

Fact checked
Berkeley, California is moving forward with a plan to remove all gendered language from its city code to support nonbinary residents.

Berkeley, California, a city with a long history of radical leftism, is moving forward with a plan to remove all gendered language from its city code as part of an effort to recognize people who don’t identify as men or women.

Soon, there will be no more “manholes” in the city of Berkeley. There will also be no “chairmen”, no “manpower”, and no “policemen.”

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.

Soon, in the Bay Area city, all instances of “he” and “she” in the city code will replaced by the gender-neutral “they.”

NBC report:

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 effort was spearheaded by City Council member Rigel Robinson, who said:

It is Berkeley being Berkeley, and what that means is it’s Berkeley being inclusive. A male-centric municipal code doesn’t reflect the reality of the city of Berkeley.

Robinson said the change to the city code, which will cost $600, is important because “language has power.”

The ordinance to make the changes will be reviewed again next week, and would go into place in late August.

Berkeley’s efforts aligns with California’s broader effort to include people who don’t identify as men or women into state policy.

In 2017, California became the first state to allow nonbinary gender markers on birth certificates, and the second state, behind Oregon, to allow residents to be identified by a gender marker other than “F” or “M” on their driver’s licenses.

      • Dolphins are mammals, is it a hole for them to climb down to fix water mains? No, that’s ludicrous. The word man refers to our species, like canine refers to dogs, poultry to chickens and cattle to cows. It’s just a real word describing our species, which is what this war is all about. It’s a war on reality, words and proven science – the words hot garbage come to mind.

    • If they’re removing man, woman is next. Man is referring to our species, as in mankind, which is exactly the reality these twatsNtwits dispute. A woman is the species of man with a womb, hence, womb-man aka woman.

  1. This is a load of silly nonsense. What about the Portugese Man O War jellyfish? Where do you stop? Mankind? Mandarin? Mandate? Mannequin? Manger? Mandible. Time to stop the pandering to easily offended snowflakes.

    • The feminazi’s lost their war – officially. They wanted woman to be deemed superior to man and now she’s deemed a man. The phrase ‘poetic justice’ comes to mind.

    • California is already gone, anyone who chooses to live there will be subject to this type of lunacy, and choices have consequences.

        • Oh please what, it’s true and you know it. Keep on having your sterilesex, us ‘straights’ know that natural selection works.

          • No. The reality is, bisexuals are the normal sexual orientation. Being straight is not normal, it is an imbalance, like even technically gay is. Pity to be born a breeder and have no talent but pumping out humans and trying desperately to keep together a bunch of people who hate each other called family.

  2. Absolute retardation. What on earth would these ignoramus’ do with the French, German, Spanish and host of other languages who categorize everything as either male or female? Idiots. They deserve what’s coming for them, all of them, male and female alike.

    • Very excellent point. Playing on English’s modern genderless nature. Same thing with curse words and xtains. There is no other language that takes cursing seriously, except English. When the very purpose of curse words is a stronger expression of speech that derives from harmless words in older languages. “Curse” words in other languages are often significantly more vulgar. Retardation is the name of the Modern game. When it’s not evil, of course.
