I was typing up my résumé yesterday, and I wanted to share the screen shot of a particular section of it with you.
Apparently, even my computer recognizes “sexist” language… =P
In case you can’t read it, the sentence I wrote was “Tutored underclassmen…”
My computer underlined “underclassmen” as a grammar error, and for its suggestion it says, “Gender-Specific expression. Consider replacing with ‘under class student’.”
Oh my goodness. Really? REALLY?
I’m curious if anyone else’s computer has corrected their word documents with gender specific expressions. Let me know!
