A piece in today’s Mail on Sunday. The start of the piece:
In the minefield of gender, the RCN [Royal College of Nursing} says ‘use woman or women, not lady or ladies’.
It adds: ‘Ensure that your language is gender-neutral, for example: chair not chairman or chairperson; humankind not mankind; staffed not manned.’
The last point is a particular issue for the RCN, as nine out of ten nurses are women.
Last night Tory MP Philip Davies said: ‘You would think the Royal College of Nurses would have better things to worry about than coming up with this idiotic, politically correct claptrap.
‘Its leadership ought to make way for people in the real world rather than in the PC bubble they are clearly in.
‘Just as a clue, they might want to focus on things like standards of patient care.’
