    Politically Correct EU To Stop Using Words Like Mankind And Manpower

    The European Union has succumbed to political correctness by replacing words which refer to man or men in favour of gender-neutral terms.



    Under guidance issued to European Parliament staff, the organisation wants to get rid of words such as mankind, manmade, manpower and layman. EU workers and elected MEPs should instead use the terms humanity and staff, reports the Daily Telegraph which says a guidebook has been handed out asking them to avoid the generic use of man. The advice features lists of gender-neutral terms to help the blocs officials navigate the English language.

    The newspaper reported that the guidebook rejects the notion the new terminology is because of political correctness and stresses that the advice is not a set of binding rules.

    It says: Gender-neutral or gender-inclusive language is more than a matter of political correctness. Language powerfully reflects and influences attitudes, behaviour and perceptions. The book states that employees should use the gender neutral term political leaders rather than statesmen and artificial instead of manmade.

    The use in many languages of the word 'man' in a wide range of idiomatic expressions which refer to both men and women, such as manpower, layman, man-made, statesmen, committee of wise men, should be discouraged.



    With increased awareness, such expressions can usually be made gender-neutral.

    The book has been written by the Parliaments secretariat which hopes to avoid sexist phrases and promote inclusivity.

    It aims to avoid phrasings that could be seen as conveying prejudice, discrimination, degrading remarks or implying that a certain gender or social gender represents the norm.

    Dr Lee Rotherham, from the Red Cell think tank, mocked the EU for being so nervous about offending it chose to use bridges instead of people on its bank notes.

    He told the Telegraph: "We should expect as much from an organisation that is so nervous about offending people it puts non-existent bridges on its bank notes.

    The European Union uses all 24 official languages of its member states for business but English is the dominant lingua franca.

    Last year the European Parliament also published advice on sexual harassment to MEPs amid the #MeToo movement.

    Let's face it, they are all genderless, brainless humanoids........
    When all this goes into effect some day, your female administrator would be called "administratice???" or?

    It's peoplekind, not mankind, stupid






    I'm so sick of this bullshit, really. I read reviews in Legacy magazine and one of these idiots feels the need to gender 'listener'. Cant read on from that point, it just rolls the toenails to my knees...everywhere is that retarded gender-*, and German offers much more ways to literally retardize the language.... stop it already

    'Man' or 'mankind' is a species first, a masculine gender second. Thus all women are part of the species of man and it is in this sense that the term is used. Politicians like the effeminate looking and emasculated globalist and capitalist supporting Trudeau are building their own bonfires as people are waking up to their neo-liberal 'newspeak'.

    'Irish Oskar Schindler' - new 5m Cork bridge honouring woman who saved hundreds of Jewish children during WWII opens


    Mary Elmes, the woman known as the Irish Oskar Schindler, saved more than 200 Jewish children from the Nazi concentration camps - and today she was honoured in her native Cork with the opening of a 5m pedestrian bridge.

    Ms Elmes, from Ballintemple in Cork city, helped save more than 200 Jewish children during World War II.

    In 1942, as Nazi Germany began the mass murder of Jewish people at Auschwitz, the Vichy France government made it clear it would no longer allow Jewish children to be exempt from being sent to the concentration camps.

    The Corkwoman, who was an aid worker, saved youngsters by ferrying them to safe houses or helping them flee the country. She hid many of the children in the boot of her car and drove them to safety. In 1943 she was arrested and spent six months in a Gestapo-run prison.

    She is the only Irish person honoured by Israel as 'Righteous Among the Nations' - the highest honour the Jewish state can bestow. The same honour was accorded to Oskar Schindler, who famously used his metalworking factory in World War II to help thousands of Jews.

    To mark the event, the Cork Hebrew Congregation sponsored the commemorative plaque erected on the bridge.

    A total of 92 submissions were made and 35 names were then proposed from that list. In a run-off, Mary Elmes was selected by Cork City Council members by 17 votes compared with 12 votes for the next highest nominee, Donnchadh de Barra.

    It used to be public monuments and the like were named after long dead Irish republicans. Thats not politically correct anymore. Since the Irish joined the EUssr we have become a bunch of competitively pathetic crawlers doing what we think the globalist Eurorats would like. The EU at least gave a grant for the bridge and so get to name it. It doesn't matter whether it's true or not. It's part of the global programme.

    R o Ireland since 1990 has had 3 presidents who have been extreme and fanatical UN globalists.

    Thanks, but well keep mother & father: Putin rejects politically correct parent #1 & #2 titles






    During a discussion on Russian national identity, President Vladimir Putin made sure to politely but firmly reject any notion of replacing traditional family structures with more progressive examples implemented in the West.


    You said the word mother cannot be replaced. Turns out maybe it can: theyve replaced it in some countries with parent number one and parent number two. I hope that never happens here, Putin said on Friday at the meeting of the Council for Interethnic Relations, a Kremlin advisory body.


    His remarks came in response to lawmaker Viktor Vodolatsky, who talked about efforts to cultivate a unifying identity among Russias youth without infringing on any other ethnic, religious or group identities. The words mother and parentare functionally the same, but carried a very different emotional weight, Vodolatsky argued, just like motherland and country.


    Smiling as he replied, Putin may as well have winked and nudged in the westerly direction. One notable place where motherhood and fatherhood had been replaced in the name of social equality is France, where in February school forms were updated to parent 1 and parent 2 in order to reflect new family diversity.


    Certain families were finding themselves stuck in rather old-fashioned social and family models, Valerie Petit, an MP with President Emmanuel Macrons ruling party REM, said in February.


    A similar measure was underway in Italy, but Deputy PM Matteo Salvini restored mother and father on government forms in April. It is unclear where the proposal may be on the agenda of the current government, which was put together in September to shut out Salvini without an election, in yet another display of EU democracy at its finest.


    Not surprisingly, it was the US that led the way in progressive bureaucrat-speak, with the State Department announcing that it would replace mother and father on passport applications in 2011, during the Obama administration. Brenda Sprague, deputy assistant secretary for passport services at the time, argued that this was due to changes in medical science and reproductive technology.


    LGBT activist group Family Equality Council left no doubt about the moves motives, however, cheering the change to a more global term that would allow many different types of families to feel recognized. This was four years before the US Supreme Court established same-sex marriages as a constitutional right, mind you.


    To be fair, mothers and fathers werent entirely replaced on State Department forms. The current ones have two entries for Mother/Father/Parent, which is clearly unacceptable discrimination against children of throuples and other polyamorous relationships, who still remain unfairly illegal under oppressive US laws.


    While Western human rights groups may be girding their loins to condemn Putins remarks as yet another example of oppression in Russia, they should hold their horses before cashing those lobbying checks. In the meeting, he also talked about welcoming and accepting immigrants, condemnation of ignorance and extremism, and support for Russias indigenous peoples who live in better conditions and in far larger numbers than Native Americans, it should be said.


    That would complicate the virtue-signaling morality plays that pay their bills, though, so we shouldnt hold our breath.




    When the globalists using Merkel, Soros and Barbara Spectre have destroyed Europe, we can only hope that Russia will be left intact.


    Hey Russia! You want to swap leaders? Or can we buy a clone?

    Perhaps it is only me here, but I think Putin (who has been in power in Russia ... who knows how many years already) ... should concentrate bit more their own birthrate (which is even lower than western countries) and population falling .... than some stupid words/names Westerns might/might not use. So typical Russians ... hiding their own problems as pointing out some others. Idea to simply fix their own ones (at least first) .... never ever has belonged to the tool box of Russians. I doubt their language even recognize words like those.
    Problems a'la why Russian people will not create families, why many of them still would like to move abroad or find foreign husbands. Yeah, I think those would make much more sense. It is a question of real thoughts (and not a meaningless grand speeches) ... will you put/invest nation's money to arms & weapons (to developing those) or to develop living conditions of your country's (average) citizens.

    I find this offensive. I'm not only an individual, I'm part of a collective as well... and not one defined by some fucking Jew social engineer, either.
    Most people think as they are trained to think, and most people make a majority.

    I think it's because of all the trannies and gender-bending people (transexuals) out there who would get offended and complain to the post office.
