In spite of being in the midst of a pandemic, the United Nations is still finding time to push its gender theory-driven agenda. The latest guidance foisted upon the world by the global governing body is a list of gender-neutral alternate phrases to “help create a more equal world.”
The UN cautioned against exclusionary terms like “boyfriend,” “girlfriend,” “husband” and “wife” in a tweet on Monday.
“What you say matters,” it reads, in part. “Help create a more equal world by using gender-neutral language if you’re unsure about someone’s gender or are referring to a group.”
The tweet then lists words such as mankind, chairman, congressman, policeman, landlord, boyfriend/girlfriend, manpower, maiden name, fireman, and husband/wife crossed out and replaced with several gender-neutral alternatives.
What you say matters.

Unsurprisingly, the tweet was flooded with criticism.
“Stop trying to control people’s language. It’s creepy and unnecessary,” said Leavers of Britain director Lucy Harris.

Another user jokingly argued that such a list of alternative terms—such as “owner” instead of “landlord”—couldn’t possibly have been concocted by a native English speaker.
This can't have been written by a native English speaker.
Landlord, for instance, is self-explanatory.
"Jim is my landlord."
"Jim is my owner." -What?
"Jim is the owner of my house." -What?
"Jim is the owner of the house in which I live." -Oh, he's your landlord!

“Are we still allowed to say manhole cover?” asked another user.

The Red-Headed Libertarian pointed out the apparent contradiction of the UN’s feminist agenda and its gender-neutral agenda in one succinct image:

Even assorted leftists on Twitter pointed out the UN’s glaring hypocrisy, noting that it allows member-nations with laws allowing homosexuality to be punishable by death to sit on its Human Rights Council:
The UN 👇 🤪
These countries' laws call to kill gays:
These countries sit on the U.N. Human Rights Council:

And, lastly, Coach Kavanaugh saw the silver lining that the coronavirus pandemic must be ebbing if the UN has the time to discuss such trivial nonsense:
You know we're over the worst of the pandemic when these issues are back being discussed 👍🏼
