Berkeley Votes to Ban Use of Word 'Manholes' in the Name of Inclusivity


The city of Berkeley, California, a prosperous and beautiful metropolitan area, has its priorities straight. Yes, like all left-wing cities, Berkeley is addressing the most pressing issue of the day, with its City Council: Getting rid of all "gendered" terms in municipal codes.

According to CNN:

The city voted Tuesday night to replace gendered terms in its municipal codes, like 'manhole' and 'manpower,' with gender-neutral ones like 'maintenance hole' and 'human effort.'

The item passed without discussion or comments and was not controversial, said Berkeley City Council member Rigel Robinson, the bill's primary author.


The revised city documents also will replace instances of gendered pronouns, such as "he" and "she" with "they," according to the ordinance.

Riegel Robinson, who spearheaded the new legislation, said on the changes, "Having a male-centric municipal code is inaccurate and not reflective of our reality… Women and non-binary individuals are just as entitled to accurate representation. Our laws are for everyone, and our municipal code should reflect that."

Like I said, Berkeley has its priorities straight. Don't you agree?
