The city of Berkeley California is approaching the problems of the day by making their city language less gender-specific and more inclusive, by flushing the term “manhole,” in the city’s code.
The far left-leaning city approved the ordinance on Tuesday to rename the holes covered by metal discs “maintenance holes” as part of a push for a gender-neutral code, The New York Post reported.
“Other changes include ‘human effort’ in place of manpower; ‘beneficiaries’ instead of heirs; ‘guards’ to replace watchmen; and ‘humanmade’ instead of manmade.”
Additionally, all pronouns in the city code will be changed to “they,” and gendered sounding professional names such as “fireman,” “firewoman” and “craftsman” will be removed and exchanged for gender-neutral terms.
“Council members unanimously approved the ordinance, which is estimated to come at a cost of $600 to taxpayers,” the Post reported.
Elsewhere in California, the state is dealing with “medieval-style” killings of at least seven people. Of the 22 arrested in these deaths, 19 are beleived to be in the country illegally, and all are associated in some way with the deadly MS-13 gang according to Fox News.
“We have now taken off the streets nearly two dozen people associated with the most violent arm of MS-13 in Los Angeles,” U.S. Attorney Nick Hanna said according to Fox News.
Involved in the massacre was a group subgroup known as “503” which is the country code for El Salvador.
Some of the killings were disclosed by the authorities in graphic details, including one where a victim was hacked to death with machetes by six MS-13 gang members.
“The victim was dismembered and his body parts were thrown into a canyon after one of the defendants allegedly cut the heart out of the victim’s body,” a news release from Hanna’s office said.
“Taking violent offenders off the street should send a message to MS-13 members and their associates that medieval-style violence and senseless murder will not be tolerated in Los Angeles,” said Paul Delacourt, assistant director in charge of the FBI’s Los Angeles field office.
