Should other cities remove gendered words from their vocabulary too?

Of course. 'Manhole' is an inherently offensive term.

Because "left me just because I used gendered words" is not a thing that actually happens.

I think "Maintenance access" makes more sense since not all of them are going into sewers.

But "manhole" is generally understood to mean an access point where the opening is large enough for a person to fit through, whereas "maintenance access" is a catchall term that doesn't imply this distinction.

Berkeley really isn't doing itself any favors here.

You can call anything maintenance access if it provides access to something that may need maintenance; a door to ventilation, a ladder, a manhole...

Meanwhile, a manhole is easily defined.

I was saying it, because I've lost people I know because I've used "Gendered" words. I don't believe we should change the way we say specific words because of it. Instead, we could just use the pronouns people want to be addressed with. I also don't see why people are getting offended by words like "manhole." So, if what I said offended anyone, it wasn't meant to, and I apologize.


Or more likely you lost them for other reasons but are trying to convince yourself it's totally because you said "chairman" that one time.


And you know this based on your wealth of experience of dealing with people that Arsenio knew? I've known of people who left because their partner voted for Trump or Clinton, which I think is idiotic, but I'm not going to pretend to know people I've never met.

Cats rule over humans who rule over dogs. So yeah let's use "cat" as a pronoun and as a gender-neutral term for humans.

Right. We need more felinism, less feminism. Why? Because cats rule over humans regardless of gender. Feminism and MRA are both flawed ideologies for they fail to take into account cats.

I'm not literal. At least in my opinion. I just don't understand how I've failed to read your post. You said I'm acting like gendered words killed someone, when nowhere in my posts have I even implied that. I've also asked you a question that you have yet to answer. I believe you're trying to divert away from it.
