    How many residents of Berkeley does it take to change a light bulb...?

    In Berkeley, we don't change "light bulbs" - we use the PC-neutral term "lamp" so as not to offend any PERSON whose shape or figure may resemble the object in question.

    Yet many people use terms like police officer and firefighter without tears...

    Agree, but I think the worst sounding is "repairs" or "repairer" for repairman.

    I wonder how long before the NFL mandates we call them "defensive linehumans", and MLB will refer to the "third base person".

    The most challenging thing about the NewSpeak ordered by Big Brother is that we also have to keep in mind which county, city, or campus in USAland we are visiting at any moment.

    The title 'person who spends their life arranging pointless meetings at the town hall' is way overdue in the UK, maybe I can email them that as a suggestion. It's not gender specific.

    Awe man!! ConAgra and Hunts food corporation will be very displeased to learn that they must now change the name of their sloppy joe mix to “Personwhich or Peoplewhich”. Not to mention I’m sure they’ll be pushing for the military to jump onboard and change their “unmanned vehicles” to “unoccupied vehicles”. I’m curious what the restrooms say on the doors in Berkeley Ca? :scratch:

    Yeah but people are already offended on both sides ... something so ambiguous leaves many open avenues for offense.

    Are some people being compared to snakes? Are some being forced to identify with the above-mentioned light bulb shape? Maybe some are being told their heads are upside-down. Horrors abound ...

    :D

    When a person mentions newspeak without actually understanding what newspeak is. This is the expansion of language, the exact opposite of newspeak.

    That’s how it’s gets assimilated.
