A feature in Microsoft Office which will suggest edits that are politically correct has resurfaced. The feature changes words such as “manpower” to “workforce, staff, [or] personnel,” and “man” and “mankind” to “humanity, people, humankind,” Microsoft says. As well as gendered suggestions, Word also recommends changes for racial and ableist language.
I despised not understanding why kids thought speaking French in school was weird. I wanted to just be Mexican and do Mexican things, but at the same time I loved my French school and my French teachers. I loved how my friends and I could publically be shady divas in French and not have anyone understand us. Before leaving, I spent months figuring out the identity I wanted to pack with me. I thought there was only space for one Sathya in my suitcase, but I quickly realized more Sathya’s were to come.
