    Are There Any Men Left In Canada?

    Justin Trudeau interrupts woman to tell her to use 'peoplekind' instead of 'mankind' because 'it's more inclusive'

    The Canadian PM made the comment during a town hall at MacEwan University
    A woman asked him about ability of religious organizations to volunteer freely
    Trudeau interrupted to say 'peoplekind' is a more inclusive term than 'mankind'
    His interjection was well-received by the audience, but sparked a wave of criticism on social media

    "We can understand hell in its aspect of privation. All your life an unattainable ecstasy has hovered just beyond the grasp of your consciousness. The day is coming when you will wake to find, beyond all hope, that you have attained it, or else, that it was within your reach and you have lost it forever.” C.S. Lewis

    I would prefer the term "sentient meat unit," but to each xyr own.

    "Trudeau interrupted to say 'peoplekind' is a more inclusive term than 'mankind'..."

    If I was ever in that situation, I would repeat myself and emphasize the term "mankind" before continuing with my point.
    Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
    But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
    Than a fool in the eyes of God

    I'd be sorely tempted to respond to him: "Thank you, Mr. Trudeau; Mankind appreciates your input."

    I'd likely sneer and say something along the lines of "did you really think it necessary to interrupt me solely to interject that nonsense"? Or if she wanted to out "PC" him the woman could have glared at him icily and snarled "I don't need your 'mansplain' thank you very much."

    I'm always still in trouble again

    "Thank you, Mr. Trudeau, for that most excellent mansplanation."
