After all, white is a mixture of all the colors of the rainbow, including black. Used inclusively, the word "white" has no connotations whatsoever of race. Yet many people are hung up on this point.

Article written under the pseudonym "William Satire". Keep reading
Didnt notice that, haha. I kept on albeit semi-skimming. Interesting point but handled in the least subtle of ways, though I suppose that's needed. Problem is - for the sake of being concise - Poe's law can be applied to real life when presented as a document and I honestly wouldn't be surprised to hear something like this (excluding the post-scriptum) was written in '85.

I get what it's trying to say and I agree, but for the most part English has always moved toward being able to say more with less. So I don't really see it being feasible to add a syllable to a bunch of words to make them -person instead of -man.

Some people would consider this a stance that is resistant to change. I see it as a stance that is welcoming to change but doesn't find this change very likely.

i would be agreeable to either replace the suffix -man/-men with -zen/-zens or maybe even -peep/ -peeps

Sure seems like it with all the contractions, buzzwords, and slang that have entered our vocabulary. The internet age may have ramped it up a bit, but it seems like it still happened slowly before that.

Of course, I'm not a linguist by a long shot, so I accept the possibility that I'm wrong.
