Last week, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made himself an eternal meme when he corrected a woman’s use of the word “mankind” — saying he prefers the term “peoplekind” instead.
While this was without a question an effort to virtue signal to the rest of the progressive world what a swell guy he must be, the stunt has largely backfired. The prime minister will likely be remembered for his absurd obsession with identity politics and political correctness for the rest of his life.
As we’ve mentioned before, there already exists a gender-neutral term for mankind — “humankind” — so it’s a bit strange that the premier would want to make up a new one. It’s equally telling how he, a white cis-gendered male who claims to be the perfect feminist, felt the need to “mansplain” his PC rhetoric to a young woman during a town hall event.
Then again, this pales in comparison to his real hypocrisy — such as his government’s support for severely anti-feminist regimes around the world which routinely oppress women in whatever way they can.
