Military orders troops to use gender-neutral language



British troops have been told to use gender-neutral terms, as the military moves away from needlessly gendered language.

Words like “manpower,” “forefathers” and “chap” have been scrapped in favour of less patriarchal language, The Sun has reported. 

The initiative has reportedly been taken at the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom to make the military more inclusive of women and transgender people.
