Washington State Bans Sexist Words

By Jack July 03, 2013 @ 2:49 PM

Washington state eliminated sexism today by enacting a law that bans gender-denoting words. The bill, signed by governor Jay Inslee, had any word that contained words like man or woman removed from all documents, papers, and books. So, penmanship is now handwriting, freshman is now a first-year student, and fisherman is now fisher, (which I’m not sure is even an actual word). Washington is crawling with hippies and granola eaters that stay up nights thinking about the evils of the word mankind and its patriarchal heteronormative implications. Liz Watson of the National Women’s Law Center said of the legislation, “Words matter, this is important in changing hearts and minds.” Sure, it is. Just like you went with Liz instead of Elizabeth or even Beth to minimize your gender defining moniker. How’s that been working out for you then?

    I understand not wanting to let context get in the way of jokes, but if you read the story you’ll see they only banned the words from state laws. And that they followed the lead of other bastions of liberalism like Florida and North Carolina.

    But if it makes it funnier, I guess it’s ok to put some Fox News spin on the story. Comedy is definitely more important than truth.
