every once in a while people suggest the best thing to do is get rid of female coded words and just go with male coded words.

"lets get rid of actress, and everyone can an actor."

why dont we get rid of actor and everyone can be an actress? oh because that makes a lot of people uncomfortable? funny that.

@siege Exactly, if we do that we're just going with the sexist trope that's common to a lot of other European languages, the default root word should never be the masculine version. Instead we should opt for truly gender neutral words.

For instance, instead of actor why not use the word performer?
