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.

The whole world is officially insane.
This sort of thing might make some Leipzigers nostalgic for the days when Leipzig was in the German Democratic Republic.

Meanwhile Hollywood now refers to actresses as “actors”.

"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.
i guess making it gender neutral is out of the question...

I would tell those feminazis to f#%$ off and refer to myself as professor then put Nair in their shampoo bottles for good measure....; )
The whole world is officially insane.
Just the left side of it. There is still hope for the right side.

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

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.

Was sauce for the goose for hundreds of years...
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.
Its accurate, non of the leftist metrosexuals have any.

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