Berkeley drops words to be inclusive, including 'fraternities' and 'sororities'

There will be no manholes in Berkeley, California. City workers will drop into "maintenance holes" instead.

Nothing will be manmade in the liberal city but "human-made." And students at the University of California, Berkeley, will join "collegiate Greek system residences" rather than fraternities and sororities.

Berkeley leaders voted unanimously this week to replace about 40 gender-specific words in the city code with gender-neutral terms an effort to be more inclusive that's drawing both praise and scorn.
I believe in the values of friendship and fidelity to purpose
