Gender-neutral language

Gender-neutral language, as a part of political correctness, is the avoidance of gender-specific job titles, non-parallel usage, and other usage that is felt by some to be sexist. Supporters feel that having gender specific titles and gender-specific pronouns implies a system bias to exclude individuals based on their sex.’ (Chan, 2010: 25-26).
