Political correctness mumbo jumbo is what it is. Reminds me of Beavis and Butthead's going to a meeting of "Wimyn Power" feminists.

Well, I know I am not supposed to be an ass - BUT - THAT IS A JOKE

c'mon - do you jump on every bandwagon in the hopes of not offending people who have modified a word to appease their own sense of self worth? I suppose you wont type the word "bananna" because the press book says some people look at that word as sexual? Human's are a species, not a sex. This is like the guy getting fired for using the word - "Niggardly" - a word with no racist definition or connotation, but sounds like the word "nigger". I tell you what, when you get an androgenous language all worked out, and all the world signed on with no-one getting offended, then I'll take it seriously. Until then, I'm trashing that concept - a bad meme to start.
