Personally I still think Male and Female is the way to go, as a male identifying as a female or vice versa is covered under one or both and that goes for the reverse. A person who has undergone a sex change or are on that path are also covered until the operations are completed with Male/Female or vice versa.

Though if you identify as a table lamp you need unplugging..

Yes I realise my statement is a direct contradiction. Are you now getting annoyed by the fact that Iím getting annoyed about people getting annoyed about stuff?

Yes, here in 2023, people are just getting on with stuff.

You imply ["bugger"] that the rewriter / writer is male.
I am outraged.

Tut tut Nutty, its 'both sexes' not 'all sexes'

OK, in your defence, it would require a pair of nips to be equal to one man, but as it also contains 'nipul', which is close enough to complete the pair of nips, what more do you want, man? Now I'm left wondering, is it OK to have the word 'ate' right next to a 'nipul'? Damn, why does life have to so complicated! As for a man intertwined with a nipul - I think I need to sit down for a rest.

I am surprised that ComMANdant RAFAC doesn’t have anything better to do.

I'm not. I worked for him several years ago.

I'd love to think this is a wind up, but something tells me not. So, the tech pubs guys have 3 months to amend every AP? Where's the money coming from?

Presumably....if AirMANship and MarksMANship have to be gone by the end of the year, then so does the ComMANdant. Certainly gets my vote.

Incorrect on both counts. Still serving and do get bothered by this ridiculous drive to remove common sense from the military (and its cadet organizations).

As for ComMANdant AC, he went full woke years ago.

Wasn't another infamous wokist a former Commandant of the ATC (as it was then)?

The World is in a terrible state with wars, food, water, energy, climate, mass immigration etc, all in crisis.

And these people are choosing this moment to get worried about the perceived "gender" of certain names and job titles ?? Wouldn't it be a little more useful to engage in planning what we do if Cretin, sorry, Putin presses the big red button, and/or invades the Shetlands, or the Faroe Islands for example?

Wait....let me check the date.......nope, not that.

Great job, identifying the really, seriously, high priority, important issues facing us and our country right now. If a change of gender language will solve all these current issues, I will eat my hat.

I suppose as Officers will now lose their batman, they will have to resort to calling them wallah?
