    You ignorant fuck, that was done years ago....with both genders.

    It's not policeman, it's police officer. It's not fireman, it's firefighter. It's not stewardess, it's flight attendant. It's not actor or actress, but male and female actors.

    It's not waiter or waitress, but waitsperson or waitstaff.

    Another great thread, Chico, you're on a roll .... if the roll was shite.

    Do you consider it to be moral progress for society to conjure up an artificial cultural blind-spot when it comes to the distinction of gender?

    Gender is a very real and significant feature of a sexually reproducing species such as humans.

    Men and women are on average significantly different in many physical and psychological traits.

    Gender distinction is not something culturally embarrassing to be swept under the carpet in a confusion over how to deal with the separate and totally valid political goal of equal opportunity.

    Such bollox isn't possible in many languages.
    It's the repressive tolerance whereby middle class women think they can alter 600 generations of conditioning with the spelling police

    Camille Paglia and Germaine Greer are really good at exposing these trivial debates

    Of course huersons should be treated with respect but the proponents seldom give a stuff for the poor old women intheir street or the teenage brides of the religion of peace.

    The real question is why anyone would support Personchetsr United when Manchester Chitty is on offer

    That's a good question....

    First, is it a blind spot and why do you feel they're artificial?

    If I say "Police Officer" do you automatically apply a gender in your mind? If I said the word "soldier" or "pilot" would you automatically think of a male figure in the position?

    It's moral progress to take the gender out our label and not attach our stereotypical "imagines" of what a position entails, unless it's the doggy position.

    I'm with John McEnroe on this one.

    If you want equality, stop having a separate Women's Wimbledon.

    Let them play as equals.

    Same goes for Golf.

    They are artificial since they are being imposed by a political school of thought that says not only should males and females be given equal opportunities (good) but also we should try and obscure the idea that gender exists as a concept (very silly).

    When it comes to actors and actresses why should we not refer to them as actors and actresses.

    They are employed in roles that are delineated specifically by gender.

    An actor is a male person employed to play male characters in TV stage and film drama.

    The role of Hamlet must be played by an actor because Hamlet is a male character so the role of Hamlet is not open to actresses by definition.

    The role of Ophelia must be played by an actress because Ophelia is a female character and so the role of Ophelia is not open to actors.

    Julie Andrews famously played Peter Pan for years on Broadway. Peter Pan is a male character, no?

    During Greek times, only men were actors.

    Why does Hamlet need to be played by a man? Couldn't a woman have been pissed about how her dad was killed?

    ^Scrambling around for a handful of obscure historical examples of exceptions to the norm does not really make for a strong argument.

    Male roles are almost always played by men.

    Female roles are almost always played by women.

    It is quite sensible to have different terms 'actor' and 'actress' for the 2 gender specific activities.

    Politically motivated and intellectually short-sighted vandalism of our language is not moral progress.

    You could never have a discussion on this topic with a Thai, they don't clutter their lives with nonsense.

    Isn't any language influenced by the current social dynamics in play at the time? Is it vandalism or evolution?

    A fair point .

    The lingua franca follows the economic/religeous powers

    A generation ago E Europeans learnt Russian now English

    The Philipinnes adopted Spanish then Yanqui and no doubt Mandarin if they become the master race or esteemed aspiration.

    Isn't it rather that the suggestive term "policeman" creates a 'gender concept', as you call it, for an occupation which has no 'sexually reproducing', again your words, aspect to it?
