Use inclusive language. (Man no longer means humanity. Be sensitive to the role of women.)
* The first generation of man. . .
* Manning [staffing] the helm as we crossed a stretch of the Atlantic Ocean. . .
* A family of Orientals [Asians] lives across the street from us.
We no longer use ethnic slurs, so let's be consistent. (We used to write racial slurs.)
Because we are sensitive writers,
we avoid offending individuals.
