491 words - 2 pages

The His'Er Problem "The His'Er problem" is what stuck out most to me. There are many phrases and issues people could bring up today in modern times. The author speaks of how she feels about phrases like man and wo-man or man kind. The one main point she brings up is "to each his own". She along with many other people feels this is politically incorrect. Why do we still refer to people as man or man kind? Does our society still feel men are more superior? We may never know for each individual but all together society is sayingno. Everywhere we go we h ...view middle of the document...

Is this incorrect? Anyone would say yes it is, but why? I feel it is because men are too insecure to be referred to as Ladies. Any "MAN" would be offended by a statement directed to them that might question their manhood. Just like some women that are strong on women's rights are offended by them being called guys. I see it as them not being secure enough with who they are. If those women wanted to make a point instead of getting offended they could just refer to men as ladies.The real question is, is this correct for our grammar and language? No I feel it is not because when you are speaking we can not some everyone up as one gender. If someone was to make a speech at a formal banquet or ect, who is to know you are not speaking to or about just the males? The modern times have changed since in the 1800's or even early 1900's when women were just a reflection of the man she waited on. Now women are a reflection of them selves and their hard work done to get them were they are. Women are still not seen completely equal in all men or even some women's eyes, but that will all change someday. As far as phrases like hey guys or dude, I just see it as slang words like dawg or homey. So for the women that takes offence to phases like that I feel they should just see it as another weakness upon many that men have.
