Air Force Email States ‘Boy’ and ‘Girl’ Are Offensive Terms

According to an email sent by a senior Air Force leader to airmen at Lackland Air Force Base, the words “boy” and “girl” were among the list of words and phrases that “may be construed offensive.” The email asked the airmen to “please be cognizant that such conduct is 100 percent zero tolerance in or outside of the work climate.” We guess the word “airmen” will now need to be changed to “airpeople.”
