People who doubt language influences thought (and sexist stereotypes) should just take a look at research. It’s not recent either; we’ve known this since the 60s and earlier.

It’s really a bummer when heroes and comics, etc. are assigned only to men. I love them, and my husband doesn’t. I go to those movies; he doesn’t — so is HE the fan? Hm…


“Fanboy,” “man,” “mankind,” “he,” “him,” etc… is always the default pronoun for anonymous people when mentioned in articles or research papers or essays or whatever. I hate it , it’s absolutely infurating.
