CLUUC Tapestry class -- non-gendered language

Today I co-taught a Cedar Lane Unitarian Universalist Church (CLUUC) Tapestry class with my local trans advocacy partner Ezra Towne – a 75-minute one-off on “Non-Gendered Language” -- we actually spent at least as much time on gender-inclusive language, i.e. the kind that affirms that there are infinite genders in infinite combinations, and that some people don’t experience gender internally. Which is an especially important witness for those of us who are both / neither / other than men and women.

“Have you ever wondered how to remove gender from our daily language? Even though feminists worked hard to remove words like mailman, fireman, stewardess and actress from our occupational vocabulary, we fall short in so many other areas. How can we adapt the way we speak, and the words we use, to eliminate the assumption of gender?”
