EU bans use of ‘Miss’ and ‘Mrs’ (and sportsmen and statesmen) because it claims they are sexist

Using ‘Miss’ and ‘Mrs’ has been banned by leaders of the European Union because they are not considered politically correct.

Brussels bureaucrats have decided the words are sexist and issued new guidelines in its bid to create ‘gender-neutral’ language.

The booklet warns European politicians they must avoid referring to a woman’s marital status.

This also means Madame and Mademoiselle, Frau and Fraulein and Senora and Senorita are banned.

Instead of using the standard titles, it is asking MEPs to address women by their names.

And the rules have not stopped there – they also ban MEPs saying sportsmen and statesmen, advising athletes and political leaders should be used instead.
Man-made is also taboo – it should be artificial or synthetic, firemen is disallowed and air hostesses should be called flight attendants.

Headmasters and headmistresses must be heads or head teachers, laymen becomes layperson, and manageress or mayoress should be manager or mayor.

Police officers must be used instead of policeman and policewoman unless the officer’s sex is relevant.

    You know,

    I liked being referred to as female.

    We should just go around like gender-less 1950’s aliens or something.

    Feminists are also behind the calling women Gentlewomen. They did that on capital hill, the Gentlewoman, lol, said “we recognize the gentlewoman from Missouri, 5 minutes.”

    The Congressmen got up and said it too, generating some snickers from the Gentlemen there.

    I still can’t believe it! I guess until our birth rates are as bad as Europe, the women will finally change their tune.

    Ugh, you’ve gotta be kidding me. Next they’ll be calling as baseball with “a swing and gender-neutral lack of contact.” What about the romance languages where every noun has a gender? Will French be rewritten? Censors can blow me. Perhaps everyone in the EU should be referred to as Miss since they seem to have lost their manhood anyways. Oops, pardonez moi, their “personhood” that is. Bite me Brussels. I think I need to move to Latin America where they still recognize gender.
