    Wacky Progressive Priorities #1032: No more 'manholes' in Berkeley, California

    No doubt this is yet another great example of progressive retardism and misplaced priorities...



    No more 'manholes': Berkeley, California, removes all gendered language from city code

    "A male-centric municipal code doesn’t reflect the reality of the city of Berkeley," a city council member said.

    Berkeley, California, a city with a long history of progressivism, is moving forward with a plan to remove all gendered language from its city code as part of an effort to recognize its nonbinary residents.

    Soon, in the Bay Area city just east of San Francisco, all instances of "he" and "she" in the city code will replaced by the gender-neutral "they."

    The City Council on Tuesday adopted the first reading of the new ordinance eliminating "gender preference language" in its municipal code.

    With the change, “manholes” will be called “maintenance holes,” “firemen” will become “firefighters,” “manmade” will be “artificial” and all instances of “men and women” will be replaced by “people.”

    The effort was spearheaded by City Council member Rigel Robinson.

    next they will outlaw all forms of montetary script and coinage, and declare religion a punishable crime.
