Yes you're right - it's political correctness gone mad!How dare they use language which acknowledges the existence of slighty over half of the world's population!? Next thing you know they'll be suggesting we let them vote...

Your post is missing the obligatory 'I am not a sexist, but...' Please include that next time so I can stop reading earlier. Thank you.

You'll never believe what happened. I was reading this article on my phone and I fell down a personhole! I shouted to the street above and they had to get a fireperson to come and lift me out...was really dark down there, thought the boogieperson might get me lol. Was taken to hospital for cuts and bruises and spent most of the time in the waiting room watching Late Night with David Letterperson.

To be honest... I don't see a problem with using the phrase "an x person raid". However, there is no need to call out Levi's comment as being sexist. The definition of the word man does tend to refer to man as in the sex of a person; however, the definition of man does happen to be "an individual human" as well as "a member of the human race". The word that the English language derives the word man from also has a meaning similar to the genderless "one" in English. As Stabaa would probably agree, all this political correctness is one small step for person... and one giant leap for personkind. It really makes me proud to be a member of the huperson race.
