In the history of all language, worldwide, grammar was used to denote male, female, and even neuter. Most modern languages today, in word forms and grammar, indicate gender distinctions. English is somewhat of an exception. For example, the word pilot does not reflect male or female. Yet English does indicate the diminutive, i.e. defining something smaller (or female).
Thus, when we say policeman, we should be able to say policewoman, just as we say drum major (male) and drum majorette (female). If in slang we say copper for male policemen we should be able to say copperette for policewomen. But the Feminist know this would be devastating to an image they try to portray. Therefore, they attempt to brainwash the culture by changing the language i.e. police officer.
In the big, secular universities, Socialism has pushed for brainwashing us with language changes to reflect its agenda. The godless, liberal Brite Divinity School published a paper [whose title is] Guidelines For Inclusive Language. The purpose is to cause their students to no longer see the differences between men and women and to attempt to change the God of Scriptures to a wimpy Feminist!
If Brites statement that language has often been used to perpetuate biases and stereotypes among persons and groups is true, is it really necessary to throw out language forms used for eons which describe God and men and women as different?!
Brite makes no bones about the fact that they are into punitive brainwashing. The paper concludes with the fact that those who do not comply with the change of the English language will be counseled personally if they resist to use the inclusive language. They must understand that exclusive language is not only objectionable but also inaccurate and biased. Therefore, if one is truthful in saying that there are differences between men and women, one is quickly labeled discriminatory.
Who says the language is objectionable, inaccurate and biased? The Socialist and Feminists thinkers of Brite who are out to change the way we think. Lets look at some examples of what the Brite Paper says:
The Brite Paper concludes by saying The aim is not
to censure but to encourage and support one another toward a consistent and responsible
use of inclusive language as most suited to Christians doing their best to respond to the
Gospel. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? What does the Gospel have to do with
identifying the difference between male and female and how the Bible represents God the
Father to us?
