State laws to become gender-neutral

Concept of gender-neutral laws should be rethought

You must be kidding, right? Gov. Jay Inslee actually signed off on a six-year effort to make state laws since 1854 gender-neutral? Not with my tax money [“All state laws now gender-neutral,” NWTuesday, April 23].

Eliminating such words as freshman and penmanship is outrageous. They don’t even relate to gender.

I reserve my right to remain a “woman” and a “human.” Mankind must not be obliterated. We need humanitarians who support “Habitat for Humanity.”

Should we rename “Death of a Salesman?” “The Postman Always Rings Twice?” “Of Mice and Men?”

Will somebody please rethink this? Be reasonable!

June Foster Stinson, Lynnwood
