As I have indicated previously, in a broader sense, I agree in
general. I think the sometimes prissy little dance we perform to be
politically correct betrays our prejudices. I again suggest working up a
glossary of new words and pronouns, which are not unwieldy phrases and
communicate well, and move on. Our language needs some updating and
streamlining to avoid conflict with current viewpoint, and maintain
efficient communication.
