    Here's a question for bi-lingual Canadians:

    Even if this were possible in English, is it possible in a gendered language like French?

    I'm thinking no---but my french is limited to table dancers---maple syrup--and fear of driving in Quebec

    Sounds like PC is spilling over our northern border.

    I was down in Milwaukee a few weeks ago and stopped at a restaurant to eat. I went to use the bathroom and there were no mens or ladies room. There were 2 bathrooms and the signs on the door said "Whichever".

    What a crazy world this has become..

  • BushartBushart Senior Member Posts: 1,532 Senior Member

    Well they say Parent 1 and parent 2

    where does that stop??---well we can't say mom n dad---what about grandma and grandpa

    How do they fit into a numerical designation

    Hang on....my workboot's empty

    Actually, my post was somewhat sarcastic. I personally don't care about labeled bathrooms.

    One of the local markets is in mid-renovation including bathrooms. For a couple of weeks, only one was open with a large sign saying, "Unisex Please lock the door upon entering". Sure enough, I waltzed in and locked the door just as some **** sauntered out of a stall, still adjusting her underpinnings. She began to scream Loyston-French obscenities, and I screamed back, "Can't you read the effing sign, Lady? Lock the door next time!" The manager came running and tried to un-ruffle her feathers, but didn't have much luck. I took my business elsewhere until they got both Loos finished, and the manager still looks at me like a pervert every time we cross paths.

    Please point out to the classroom where I stated I was worried.

    I don't worry about it at all. I just find it to be ridiculous.

    Look man.....when a mixed gender group of two or more are in front of 95% of the world's population...and they want to address one person or all the people of one gender......they use gender specific language.....

    Couple conducting business at a banking window, guy asks for change for a 100....teller says...'Yes SIR and how would you like that'........kid's at the dinner table wants to ask his mom a question....kid addresses 'Mom...'......asks the question....because pointing is considered rude...and more than anything else this is natural...instinctive...intuitive....it works....

    People who can't grasp that and perceive some kinda 'gender preference' from it are just messed up in the head and unable to function effectively in society....and need to realize 99.999999% of what the rest of the world does aint about them at all! I suspect that if they weren't so busy trying to make everything about them, most of them would realize that without effort! I also suspect a lot of the people who do make such issues...just really, really, really want or need everything to be about them and will find a way no matter what you do...because its about them...not you!

    I have to deal with all sorts of foreigners via e-mail all day long. Trying to avoid the gender thing because I don't know if it's a man or woman is one of the toughest things I have to do.
    It can be done, but it makes you come across really rude. Sometimes I just guess and go for it so I don't come across as a prick.
