Berkeley Scrubs 'Women' from Official Documents to be 'More Inclusive' By Jay Greenberg

Berkeley Scrubs 'Women' from Official Documents to be 'More Inclusive'

The city council in hyper-liberal Berkeley, California has moved to scrub women from all official documents, all in the name of "inclusiveness" and feminist "equality." The eradication of women is a radical new requirement for the city’s adoption of unpopular “Third-Wave Feminist” gender ideology. The move is designed to aid upper-income women by rejecting any significant legal, civic, social, or even biological differences between men and women. This ideology is shaping progressive demands far beyond Berkeley, and — for example — it prompts progressives to demand that “transgender” people be treated as members of the opposite sex, even in athletics, bathrooms, scholarships, and housing. Berkeley’s expulsion of women started on July 16 when the council voted to erase any words or ideas from city code which recognize the male or female sex of their city’s population. The banned ideas and forbidden words include “female” and “sister” - terms now deemed "non-inclusive" and therefore "offensive." Until recently, “firewoman” and “policewomen” were symbols of successful sexual equality for the previous “Second Wave Feminists” - the council also banished these words. The San Francisco Chronicle reported the city council’s explanation: “Gender-neutral language creates a lot of room to acknowledge that it’s not just men running the country,” said council member Rigel Robinson, who sponsored the ordinance. … Robinson, 23, was elected in November as the youngest city council member in Berkeley history. He graduated from UC Berkeley last year and credits his college experience with broadening his perspective on gender issues. “Awareness and issues of gender identity are often particularly visible on college campuses, but it’s important that it doesn’t stay there,” Robinson said. “I’m a cisgender heterosexual male — in many ways these issues don’t affect me. "I’ve gotten to know so many people for whom these issues are important, largely through the campus community.”
