Mankind I am Not!
I went to the movies the other day and saw the advertisement below. I was angry, a car "made for mankind." That leaves me out. Then I read an interview by Greg Robinson in which he claimed the ad was meant to be "gender neutral." WHAT! Does he know what gender neutral means? Is womankind gender neutral? Of course not. No more than mankind is gender neutral.
Made for Mankind
It is anachronistic to continue to use male generic language as if it is inclusive language. It is not. My dictionary says, "Mankind, the human race; man taken collectively." But Womankind is, "Women collectively." I am not women are not men. A change of language is in order.
