The United Nations Decides A Global Pandemic Is Just The Right Time To Push Gender Neutral Language

If you didn’t already think the United Nations is a useless organization, this should change that.

As the world is engulfed by the Coronavirus pandemic, millions of jobs are lost and millions are worried about food, the UN is pushing the use of gender neutral pronouns.

UN takes heat for bizarre ‘gender neutral’ language code

The United Nations is taking heat after posting a bizarre new dictionary of “gender-neutral” terms to replace more gendered words used in everyday life — with social media users expressing bewilderment and confusion at the language policing that in some cases appeared to backfire.

“Help create a more equal world by using gender-neutral language if you’re unsure about someone’s gender or are referring to a group,” the U.N. Twitter account said.

The dictionary, originally posted by U.N. Women, includes terms that have been in regular use for a while — such as replacing “mankind” with “humankind” and “chairman” with “chair.”

Others, however, are a little more strained. The list suggests replacing “landlord” with “owner” — a term that has its own problematic connotations related to slavery and cannot typically be swapped for the former term without dramatically changing the meaning. (“This is Bob. Bob is my owner.”)

The UN really has nothing more important than this to than this?

They deserve all the criticism they get over this.

Why does the United States give the UN funding?
