    Berkeley, California is going full Berkeley and removing all “gendered” language from its city code in order to be more “inclusive.”

    NBC News reported that on Tuesday, the city council adopted a first reading of a new ordinance which removes “gender preference language” from Berkeley’s municipal code. NBC also reported that city council member Rigel Robinson, the youngest member of the council, orchestrated the new ordinance.

    “It is Berkeley being Berkeley, and what that means is it’s Berkeley being inclusive,” Robinson told the outlet’s bay-area affiliate. "A male-centric municipal code doesn’t reflect the reality of the city of Berkeley."

    The full list of changed words is reminiscent of the decades-old move to change words that typically end in “-man” to ending with “-person,” such as “salesperson” instead of “salesman.” But the Berkeley list goes further, changing words in a way that would make a Gender Studies professor proud.
    At least he word a$$hole isn't male-centric and ceratinly would apply to all of the city council members.

    They also just passed an ordinance prohibiting the installation of natural gas in new construction.

    Typical and delusional. This would require housing to be 100% electrical.

    I guess they all think windmills and solar panels will generate the needed amount.

    Everytime I see stuff like this, my thought is wow, this city, state, county, school, ect, had reached a state of utopia where votes like this are all they have left to work on.

    Banning the term manholes, but obviously they still allow numbskull assholes in Berkeley.

    Despise being mostly liberal, the late great George Carlin is spinning in his grave. He hated this type of crapola.

    Now, now. There are brown eggs...wait a minute. Walking on brown eggshells means you're oppressing those brown eggs.
    Progressivism is a bottomless pit of absurdity.

    Clearly, I’m racist for disregarding the brown eggs. I should be dumped feet first into a wood chipper for that.

    Clearly I'm racist since I don't like black licorice.
