Actresses are now called actors – what is wrong with distinguishing between male performers as actors and female performers as actresses?
A chairman, male or female, is now called a chair – a chair is something that I sit on.
Also ridiculous, a chairman is sometimes called a chairperson. At one board meeting that I attended, a female member insisted on use of the term chairperson. I asked if she regarded herself as a human or a huperson – she looked daggers at me and never spoke to me again.
