An entire city is attempting to kill words to appeal to emotions and strip away any sense of individuality and identity. Gendered words such as “manhole” will be banned from Berkeley, California’s city codes.
All words that imply a gender preference will be removed from the city’s codes and replaced with gender-neutral terms, according to a recently adopted city ordinance. The city voted Tuesday night to replace gendered terms in its municipal codes, like “manhole” and “manpower,” with gender-neutral ones like “maintenance hole” and “human effort,” reported CNN.
Even the undertone of the far-left CNN article implied that this was absolutely a waste of manpower and time and incredibly ridiculous to boot. If politicians have nothing better to do with their time than ban words from themselves in the laws they write to control the rest of us, perhaps we don’t need them at all. “Having a male-centric municipal code is inaccurate and not reflective of our reality,” said Berkeley City Council member Rigel Robinson. “Women and non-binary individuals are just as entitled to accurate representation. Our laws are for everyone, and our municipal code should reflect that.”
The item passed without discussion or comments and was not controversial, said Robinson, the bill’s primary author. “There’s power in language,” Robinson said. “This is a small move, but it matters.” The revised city documents also will replace instances of gendered pronouns, such as “he” and “she” with “they,” according to the ordinance. Berkeley’s city code contains mostly male pronouns, and we can’t have people thinking the government only wants to control men. Robinson said it “themself”: the laws are for everyone.
At least this particular item will impact the lawmakers and not the citizens, however, we wouldn’t expect that to last for too long. Politicians love their control and language control and political correctness are the cornerstones of censorship.
The root cause of most of society’s ills–the main source of man’s inhumanity to man–is neither malice nor negligence, but a mere superstition–an unquestioned assumption which has been accepted on faith by nearly everyone, of all ages, races, religions, education and income levels. If people were to recognize that one belief for what it is–an utterly irrational, self-contradictory, and horribly destructive myth–most of the violence, oppression, and injustice in the world would cease. But that will happen only when people dare to honestly and objectively re-examine their belief systems. “The Most Dangerous Superstition” exposes the myth for what it is, showing how nearly everyone, as a result of one particular unquestioned assumption, is directly contributing to violence and oppression without even realizing it. – Most Dangerous Superstition
Mac old boy, the Nation is falling apart, our borders are violated to almost the point of Cloward-Piven crisis. Our youth are pushing the country towards Socialism. Antifa is ramping up the violence. Both Ebola and the Chinese pig flue may come to the U.S. soon. The 2020 election might bring on Civil War 2.
WHILE THIS SITE KEEPS PUSHING STORIES ON ECONOMICS AND CRAP LIKE THIS. NO WONDER IT IS FAILING .
For the very last time, watch out fur dem hogs!
Too many political articles.
Too many sci-fi articles.
Too many “sky is falling” articles.
Too much chest puffing.
Too much name calling and ridiculing.
Site has been declining for over 2 years now and it’s due to the above reasons.
Site lost its roots,plain and simple.
There’s a very good reason why the majority of veterans left and went elsewhere.
And dem “niggies”!
Things like this need to be publicized because it shows just how far the shitlibs are willing to push and it’s never enough for them. They’ll keep pushing, pushing, pushing…until we push back HARD. Keep winding the spring, shitlibs, and eventually it’s going to snap.
SW, an attack on our culture takes many forms.
this is worth reporting.
These people are trying to eliminate America as we know it. Think of the statues and murals being removed from public venues….they want to erase all things uniquely American. They must not be allowed to succeed.
A generation of “snowflakes” and privileged minorities (like LGBTQs or BLMs) have no coping skills as their delusional world view has never been tested. The university system should gently ease these pampered children into adulthood. Obviously Berzerkly and other liberal establishments fail in that task.
I’m for immersion testing – send these fools to old-school USMC BOOT CAMP with no repercussions for any “training” by instructors. Those that fail to live through it – good riddance.

Wadda bout “fronthole”? Is that a gendered term?
In more conservative times, when they waited ’til the rip old age of second grade to teach sex ed (now it’s kindergarten), we were supposed to use the precise, medical terms, so people would know exactly where the authorities were touching us.
Now, first responders, in an emergency, are supposed to tip-toe, delicately, around whether you were born with an inny or an outty.
Fronthole is not a gendered term, because they don’t know whether you’re XX or have a neovagina.
Why do we have sex ed. How are people supposed to know wth you are talking about.
California = Communist
California = INSANITY
Stay out of Cali. Less their mental disease infects you.
You should never live under communist rule.
Liberty or Leave.
The greatest liberty, is the liberty to leave. Vote with your wallet.
Do you think Man/Hoe Cover as a description of the sewer access covers would appease the savages?
Errrrrr, is that where they make fishing line?
😀 😀 😀 😀
I would have some platonic kind of respect for someone, who called all his vices by their proper names, without engaging the disinterested.
When I read apocrypha, regarding the state of Sodom, Gomorrah, and the cities of the plane, they had a legal system. Cultural decay runs deeper than a masturbatory act, akin to shape recognition and sense of direction.
Of course they want to push this through!
Since evil is that which destroys, this is Satan’s way of destroying the passion for life humans have animated by their sexuality and thereby diminish their humanness or liveliness.
It’s evil because it destroys/diminishes.
Orwell. Newspeak. Control language, control the mind.
“It’s not the message, but the medium of the message that is most influential.”
AND I QUOTE, “Do you think these assholes even understand what will happen when thousands of pissed-off armed Americans decide to take just one shot at the target of their own choice – be it human or otherwise – and then go home? College professors, low-level local politician nobodies, media celebutards, elderly leftist icons — they all are walking around every day as if real people with real balls can’t find them and destroy them.”
“These people are playing with matches… I don’t think they understand the scope and scale of the wildfire they are flirting with. They are fucking around with a civil war that could last a decade and cause millions of deaths… and the sad truth is that 95% of the problems we have in this country could be solved tomorrow, by noon… simply by dragging 100 people out in the street and shooting them in the fucking head.”
The perpetrators of the destruction of civil society WANT exactly that: they are attempting to destroy the USA through weakening of the family unit, corrupting morals and dividing We the People into self-identified groups which fight against their fellow Americans. When/if We the People begin killing each other en masse, martial law will be declared and that will be the end of the republic and the beginning of the empire, repeating history from early Roman times.
The solution is for people who care about individual liberty and autonomy to stop identifying with manufactured group identities, to get involved with their local election process and make CERTAIN that no unqualified person votes, and that the machines and programs are counting EVERY vote accurately. Further, boycott every organ disseminating fake news and support the few which report news accurately, timely and without bias. Work with others to recall all elected politicians who have violated their oaths to uphold and protect the Constitution. These are things we can all do, regardless of our physical limitations.
More emphatically, these are things we should all have been doing all along, and the sooner we get started, the sooner the power of the people will prevail.
Beautiful quote.. who said it??
How did you arrive at this figure of 95%? Was it revealed to you in a dream?
No Spanish speakers allowed in Berkeley, not gender friendly
I always use gender neural words when talking to the LGBT people so as not to offend. Words like PERVERT, LUNATIC, DEGENERATE, DERANGED, DEPRAVED, WARPED, ETC.
“Conservatives” are no less guilty of gender confusion, assuming that she should be a physical laborer, technician, or authority figure, outside of the home — under that same manhole cover. Whatever you want to label that one small piece, you still agree to the entire, liberal system of priorities, in practice. Besides that one word.
Is the word “asshole” also banned? I have a feeling they’re going to be hearing it a lot.
That Rigel Robinson, is he a transgender? Seems very well possible.
Wow…. this article was read by … all of 1,089 people. And the handful of bigmouths here keep posturing.
That Rigel Robinson might be a transgender himself, I would not be surprised.
Confound the language, make it nonsensical so that we cannot communicate. That seems to be the goal.
We often refer to ships with the feminine pronoun, “she”. If we say instead, “them”, which is plural; how confusing is that !!! “Moby Dick” is it the story of one ship against the ocean and one whale, or is it the entire English fleet of ships? And they wonder why our kids can’t read.
Have you heard about the necessity of getting enough boron?
Without boron, or being deficient in boron causes:
Cavities and dental problems
Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease
Hormonal disorders/low testosterone
Signs of aging
Inability to detoxify heavy metal
Retention of flouride, mercury, arsenic
The list goes on
Poor motor skills,
Poor Eye-hand co-ordination
You can buy supplements.
You can soak in water with added borax, which is boron, for subcutaneous (through the skin) application.
Or, some people have taken borax orally. Apparently too much is toxic. It is illegal in Australia to sell it for oral consumption, but they sell borax in bath salts for soaking.
Right here in America borax is still used as a healthy cleanser.
Twenty Mule Team Borax has been on the shelf for years.
I see laundry soap can be made from a combination of Borax, Washing Soda, and a hand soap. There are tutorials on the web. Less expensive to make it at home than to buy high priced organic laundry soap in the store.
Should we stock up on these essential items? You decide.
There are similar false claims about boron floating through the insulation and ‘green’ industry right now. Nope, it’s a chemical, and for most applications, it’s synthesized. It changes it’s chemical composition through heat, moisture, and other environmental stimuli. We chose Roxul rock wool batts instead, no offgassing, no worries about reproductive harm. That stuff they claim is mere borax or whatever in insulation, that’s not what it really is. It’s right there next to a forever ftc chemical.
Honeypot, thanks for helping our efforts to stay healthy. I wasn’t aware. I’m looking into my supplements (vitamins) and plan to get some 20 mule team Borax, soon.
You used to be able to institutionalize someone for grandiose, pathological narcissism.
Is that too far?
I have a theory about manipulators and compulsive liars: they gradually lose touch with consensus reality.
This story is about politics, opinions, and social constructs. That’s what they think.
In my experience with this kind of person, it progresses to maths, measurements, and other laws of nature, besides biological gender. You think, they’re fanciful, now. Just you wait.
