Oh man.
Seriously, I wanted to point out your gendered language and ask you in the nicest way to change it going forward.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

New level of stupidity. It would be regular stupid if this was actually referring to the male gender, but being that it's referring to mankind, this person may as well just shove it back where it came out of.

My bad.   Oh woman. That is more appropriate in this instance as  I am going to  assume a woman sent that message to you.

Yes. I did. 
My guess if a man wrote it, it was a joke.
If not a woman probably did.

You're missing the point, the word "mankind" is inherently sexist.

So is "wo-man" "s-he" "fe-male" "he-r"

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.
