This is a topic that has been in the news a lot lately. I usually take a neutral stance on the topic. On the issues of indian logos, I usually have no opinion. I read an article that I have posted below on changeing the term for “firefighters”. They say is sexist and too agressive. WTF? This is taking PC just a little too far. When is this going to stop? Please post your opinions on this article.
’Firemaster’ Term Offensive to Women
**"The Scottish Executive are considering a proposal to stop using the term “firemaster” or “firefighter” to refer to people who professionally fight fires because the former is offensive to women and the latter is “too aggressive.”
The Convention of Scottish Local Authorities supports the proposal, according to the Ayshire Post, but fire officers have branded the suggestion “political correctness gone mad.”
Conservative Member of the Scottish Parliament Phil Gallie agreed with the latter.
“I think it is the Scottish Executive that need to find some aggression in weeding out those who come up with such ludicrous suggestions,” he said. “And instead, spend more time on the issues which really affect the lives of the men and women alike who live in their constituencies.”**
I go this article from the the tongue tied section of Fox News.
