Learned a new term today.
Employees were also told to “minimise manteruptions”, which refers to men interrupting while women are speaking.

“Research shows that in many situations, including the workplace, men interrupt and speak over women, while the reverse rarely happens,” the pack reads.
All these years, I thought it was mainly due to just trying to get a word in between breaths.

Ah CG, that was the military way. Milady Teeters too grew tired of being W/O (wife of, not Warrant Officer) Teeters773.

But karma came to me one day at the Teeterettes Primary School Disco - many years ago. A blonde "Yummy Mummy" kept making eye contact and smiling at me .... well, it's nice to know you still can even if you don't want to!

YM beckons me over and opens the conversation with: "I think your wife is wonderful!" (Milady was Practice Nurse at the Village Surgery at the time.)

YM's husband approaches and YM introduces us: "Oh, this is .... errr..... errr ... Sister Teeter's husband!"

If you are to gender neutralise male/female terminology, how do you replace father/ mother; son/daughter, nephew/niece, aunt/uncle etc. etc.

Someone somewhere needs to yell, STOP, very forcibly. Life has enough confusions and causes for WTF without inventing and seeking out more.

The 'researchers' obviously missed the Jordan Peterson TV interview with whatshername.
