What the fuck is with contemporary philosophers using her/she all the time describing a person? They could make the person genderless or male since its quite obvious who reads their books but nah better use the female word since we are so PC even though it makes no sense at all and actually counterintuitive.

It's a trigger mechanism to prevent autistic retards from reading and misinterpreting their books.

What the fuck is with contemporary readers complaining about authors using her/she all the time describing a person? I could make the person genderless or male since that's historically how authors wrote their books but nah better use the female word since it makes no difference to the content and manchildren will get triggered on the internet.

You'd get butt hurt if you even just read one book that said "she" instead of "he" as its default gender.

We must save whiteness from SJW cultural marxism.
Saying 'her/she' in a male discourse like philosophy is equivalent to the outbreeding of the white male that we see happening today

You shouldn't feel bad. You are part of a perfect machine that exists necessarily. Read The Ethics again, once you actually grasp what he's saying you will realize this truth.

Prove this or I will become a mysogynist. I will carry on the good name of Ted Bundy and slaughter women until I get caught. Prove that women aren't inferior to men or some poor broad dies tonight.*

Fuck you. When you pepper literature with 90% her we won't read it. We're all going to stick to Aristolte if you don't stop ruining our lives with your nagging.

Back in the day we used to get away from women by hunting for food with the mates. Then we did it by going to work. Now that you've invaded our work we will go back to living in caves and jerking off in solitude. We don't need you-you need us, goodbye cunts, enjoy the collapse of civilization without us.

>God, I fuckin' hate the internet. Why do I do this to myself?

Get ready for the rape that comes with anarchy, bitch. Once a few nukes go off in major cities because men stop giving a fuck about global security, the entire world will fall into chaos. All women are going to get raped like dogs and we're going to laugh at you.

I read an interesting French take on it. One of the authors in the foreword mentioned that in the original French, they had of course used "on", or "one" for indefinite cases. In the translation, they had asked that he and she be used roughly as often as each other, because many readers would find it outdated if they used a more direction translation. However, because a lot of the book dealt with PTSD, they wanted an equal split so neither gender would be considered to suffer or benefit from it more than the other. They knew they wouldn't get it published with "one" instead of "s/he", but I believe he was also worried that the English translation would imply only women got PTSD (or only men). Asking for a fifty-fifty split seems to be becoming more popular, but it's hard to tell whether that's because it defaults one way or the other. I think it's a bigger problem that philosophers are afraid of the word "one".
