The University of Leipzig has voted to adopt the feminine version of the word for “professor” as its default. In German, Professorin refers to a female professor while Professor is the male equivalent.

Under the new measures, written documents will use the term Professorinnen when referring to professors in general. A footnote is to explain that male professors are also included in the description. …

This sort of thing might make some Leipzigers nostalgic for the days when Leipzig was in the German Democratic Republic.

"When we women complain of being sidelined, as a rule our colleagues respond with a faint smile. Now that it's the other way around, the men are grumbling. Maybe we'll ultimately achieve a culture of gender equality,"

Uh huh. This poor oppressed woman is a Professor of Economics and an EU commissioner. And her cure for oppression is more oppression. She hasn't shared how that is supposed to result in a more "equal" world because it won't.

They may as well, because they obviously don’t plan on having any men as instructors.

You don’t understand: Being male is sexist in itself.

And red will now be called “green” in efforts to eradicate color bias and add to general confusion.

I don’t object to that, after all we don’t refer to female drivers as driveresses, on the other hand if they referred to Bruce Willis as an actress I would consider that absurd.

"Meanwhile Hollywood now refers to actresses as “actors”.

And yet, for award purposes they still distinguish between, "Best Female Actor," and, "Best Male Actor."

Change things all you want, the still don’t have a penis. Maybe a strong, non-offensive, slap on the ass will let them come with their senses. I mean to their senses-sorry.

Art Linkletter in Kids Say the Darndest Things mentions a kid who, when asked what she wanted to do when she grew up, answered: "I want to be an actress, like Jack Benny."

She was ahead of her time, linguistically.

Screwed up. Having the male gender cover both male and female professors is okay. The other way is weird, somehow. It’s related to whatever it is that makes it okay for girls to wear guy jeans but not vice versa.

Have you noticed that just about everybody demanding “equality” of one kind or other are actually demanding supremacy?
