We all know that words can normalize oppressive attributes of our culture. We refrain from saying nigger, chink, and other ethnic slurs because they have been used to degrade people for far too long. Recently there has been a movement to remove the word 'man' from occupational titles. Policeman becomes Police Officer, Mailman becomes Mailperson, etc. These are all nice changes, but they aren't addressing the root of the problem. The very descriptor for what we are, human, contains an obvious gender bias that implies that being a man is the standard, while woman is the derivative. It's time to end this. I'm calling on all of you, my friends, to stop using the word human and begin using the word huperson so we can dismantle patriarchy forever.


Feel free to attack me (and therefore promote rape culture) in the comments below.

okay
But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
that'll cut you to ribbons, sometimes
and all you can do is just wait by the moon
and bleed if it's what she says you ought to do

actually "man" is gender neutral etymologically speaking.


you are an oppressive attribute of our culture, stewiebird (because you're being a speciesist. Swans are birds so why don't you just call yourself one. Do you think you're better than chickens?)

When are we going to start cracking down on rape culture in the animal kingdom? Cats have barbed penises that tear up the vagina of the female upon exiting, and ducks are some of this world's most awful sexual deviants.. they're necrophiles and rapists. Not to mention cannibals.

But noooo I kiss a girl on the cheek and I end up in jail. NO MORE FREE RIDES FOR SCROOGE MCDUCK

That's why they are so noisy when they have sex.


I know this from experience because I am a cat.

Not without your old avatar (that you said you'd switch back to when whoomit came back..)

Also, that makes so much sense. It never sounds like enjoyment, just pain and a raw desire for a better life.

No, it doesn't. Human is a word, it does nothing. You infer your conclusion from that word. But yes, it is loaded like all of our language; there is history obviously.

And of course what about Homo sapiens? People? Person? There are other descriptors that are more gender neutral. And I believe it is possible that an ahistorical interpretation might be that man derives from human. So then, why not just put a male qualifier onto the word man? Then you can have human, woman, and

Ah UG making fun of rape/consent culture. Shows just how classy most of you are.

Also, Stu's happiness to show how much of a misogynistic moron he is on this website really amuses me.

I find it hard to take "rape/consent culture" seriously when many of the ardents of it do something like post a blog about how a man used the right words when asking to kiss her.

I'm offended by the double-use of the male descriptive word in "mailman".
We must change it to Postage-Person.

Biased poll and idiot poll. Changing terms just because you don't like their latin roots is not a viable reason to change terms. It doesn't make anyone complacent to this "Rape Culture" people like to bitch about for no reason. Women rape and abuse men too. The difference is that men report it much less. That doesn't mean there is a rape culture at all and the similarities between terms doesn't create one and doesn't cause one. I prefer to call people Human beings because there is no viable reason to change the terms.

Edit: Because "Huperson" has the word son in it, you are encouraging a pedophilia culture in place of this "Rape culture." XD

I think you're taking this shit way too seriously...

Also, someone already made the "son" joke.
