Question and answer
In what ways are sexist biases reflected in the language we use in ordinary speech? Please give examples.
All of the following statements about bias are TRUE except: bias gives an objective assessment of a situation. Sexist biases are reflected in occupations that we use colloquially such as fireman, policeman, or mailman. [ Also it is common standard that when a gender is unknown, that one usually uses the masculine pronoun instead of feminine or ambiguous (he, him, his, etc.) ]
