According to the UK Telegraph, the British Army just spent 40,000 of taxpayer money to be told that it’s a sexist organization. Why, praytell? Mainly, it’s because they have the audacity to use the word “manning” rather than “staffing,” and because female soldiers are sometimes called “girls.” (Never mind the fact that the men are called “boys.”) According to researcher Rachel Woodward, “the term ‘manning’ speaks volumes because it presupposes an entirely male force.”

Oh, those army meanies!
