The origin of the word is ancient Greek Humanitas which Cicero in his life (106-43 BC) described as the formation of an ideal speaker who was educated and possessed a collection of virtues and character which made the both a good public and private person.

It was adopted in Latin and defined in Latin as one of the concepts of the Ancient Greek ideas of philanthropia or loving what makes us humans

It evolved from Latin to Old French as the word Humanite which meant a group of human beings or the state of quality of being a human


From the old French it was adopted as the word we know today of Humanity in Middle English and meant humans as a collective, the state of being human, the quality of being humane or benevolent.



Manufactured come from the Italian word manifattura and meant something made by hand.

It was adopted in Medieval Latin as manus (meaning hand) and factura (meaning a working) or working with ones hands

Imagine if you will you are speaking Spanish....

Because you're the person speaking, when you meet Angelina Jolie you say, "estoy encantado de conocerla Sra Jolie." If, however, you meet Brad Pitt you say, "estoy encantado de conocerle Sr Pitt."
In addition, every object is either male or female. A pencil is male, while a table is female. Will the far left try to make them change their language so everything is gender neutral and no one is offended, or would that violate the left wing nut rule about all other cultures being better than ours, since ours was founded by rich European men (er....persons) who came here to exploit the Native American?

“My grandpa was quite the fisher person.” That just rolls right off the tongue, doesn’t it?
Eventually even that sentence will be offensive because you assumed the gender of your grandpa or some such nonsense. It is inevitable that the euphemism treadmill will keep churning.
And why is person ok. It has the word 'son' in it.

Men need to get on the ball and start evolving and reforming for the better faster than women. As conservatives would put it, it's all about taking personal responsibility to better your life while staying out of trouble. Of course, Republican legislators would think it's very wrong and immoral, or against God's will to use the government to help men be closer to equal with women. So, either accept personal responsibility or always be left behind in the dust while being part of the reason why Oklahoma ranks near no. 50 in various quality of life rankings. Shape up or ship out.

Those are national statistics that Cim quoted, not state statistics.
