For the life of me I cannot remember
What made us think that we were wise and
We'd never compromise
For the life of me I cannot believe
We'd ever die for these sins
We were merely first-years

We do have another word other than "man" and "woman" - "it"

Ummm...was this something that had to be addressed? Was the 'man' in Freshman really offending people? The person who brought this up, is it the same caliber of people who when someone walks up to the group they are in and says "Hey guys!" they spout off with "Don't you mean 'Hey people'? since we are not all guys in this group." Does this person spell the female gender as Womyn?

So in return fairness we're going to open up all women-only colleges to men, just like we had to do with all the male-only ones, right?

susler: I may be setting myself up here but what's so horrible about taking a term put into place when women were pretty much forced to stay home cooking and raising kids and updating it to be more inclusive?

I think the biggest bullshiat pcism I saw at college was the use of "his/herstory. Yes, because a gender neutral word that just happens to have three letters in it that make up a word denoting gender means the word is sexist.

A He-Man would be an Its-Person.
Little Kids would be scared of the Boogie-Person
We'll all sing "for its a jolly good person"

And give credit to George Carlin if you're gonna take from his bit.
