Vic Smith BS: Two Men (14) RE: BS: Two Men 18 Jul 20


vic, there is no need to mention the sex of the offenders that is sexist, it is more correct to say two people

But surely if I had written 'people' I could have been accused of being humanist and discriminatory against other hominids. I did not want to offend them.
On the other hand if I had said two primates, what would all the ungulates, arachnids, piscines etc. have thought.
Neither do I want to offend any single cell amoebae or the various species of moss and lichen.

I considered all these points very carefully before settling on calling them two men..... because, after all, that is what they are.
