Under the ordinance enforced by the local authority in the north of California, all words such as ‘manholes’ or holes, ‘policewomen’ or female police and ‘firemen’ or firefighters are strictly forbidden to be used in official documents, and need to be replaced by the term more neutral gender.

“Over the last few years, increasing awareness of transgender and the use of gender identity is not appropriate, raises the debate on the importance of non-core gender engagement.

“Hence, it is time to create an appropriate social participation environment in the city hall and in the legal language used,” said town council member, Rigel Robinson.

Accordingly, commonly used words such as’ bondsman ‘or bondholders will be replaced with terms that are not gender-oriented, namely’ bonds-person ‘, while’ manpower ‘will be replaced with’ human effort, ‘and’ (pregnant women) will be referred to as ‘pregnant employee’.

At the same time, the use of a pronoun, the ‘he’ for a man or ‘she’ for a woman will be changed to more neutral terms such as ‘the attorney’ or the lawyer and ‘the merchant’ or trader.

“Although it is a small and small decision, it is very meaningful,” said Robinson.
