University students in the UK are refusing to say the word “woman” and its plural because they believe it’s “offensive” to include the word “man”.
Students of Goldsmiths, University of London and Kings College London are instead referring to females as “womxn”.
The Students Union at Goldsmiths University believes that using the word “womxn” is “inclusive” of all students, as it includes those who identify themselves as transgender.
Elsewhere in the city, societies including the “KCL Womxn in Physics” club at King’s College are also using the word, reported Daily Mail.
It’s time for dame, broad and Sheila to make a comeback.
