I’m not going to insist that the strong version of the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis is correct and there can be no thought without language, because that’s already been disproved. Being manly is a good thing while being womanish is undeniably bad.

But no one can deny that language make that name up) has written a fascinating article, How Language Shapes Thought. Try to count how many times you hear the phrase “be a man about it” or “man up” in the media and then meditate on exactly where that puts you if you are not a man to begin with and can’t be one no matter how you try (unless you’re transgender, which is fine with me but not an option for all women).

It’s not perfect, but it’s the best we have right now and it’s much, much better than being sexist. In the same vein, “kitty”-whipped (the synonym for henpecked) is degrading to both men and women.

As babies we learn from language, and philosophers and philologists have argued for some time whether language actually dictates our thoughts rather than the reverse. The very idea that there is a specific insult meaning that a man is over-influenced by his wife/girlfriend/baby mama is outrageous.

The couple kept their romance a secret during their early days, with Nina explaining: “I didn’t want to be dating one of my costars. But sometimes you can’t help who you have a connection with, and you can only fight it for so long – which I did for a really, really long time.”VAMPIRE DIARIES SEASON 8 NETFLIX RELEASE DATEDespite rumours that Nina quit the show because of tension with Ian, the pair have remained friends since their split.

In January 2017 it was rumoured that Nina was dating Scream Queens star Glen Powell after they both shared pictures of them together on Instagram.

You’ll find that, as Sherryl Kleinman, the teacher of a sociology course on gender inequality at the University of North Carolina, says, word choice is important “[b]ecause male-based generics are another indicator—and more importantly, a reinforcer—of a system in which ‘man’ in the abstract and men in the flesh are privileged over women.” She adds that changing our language is a relatively easy way to start making inroads toward equality of the sexes. Kelley-Chew that concludes that “male-gendered generics are exclusionary of women and tend to reinforce gender stereotypes. But what really drives me crazy is that men (mostly men) use the term “bitch” not only when they’re trying to derogate a woman, but when they’re insulting a “weak” man.

She was born in Sofia, Bulgaria and moved to Toronto, Canada aged two, where she began training in ballet and jazz, and competed in rhythmic gymnastics competitions.

Nina explained why she quit the show at the height of its popularity saying: “I always knew I wanted Elena's story to be a six season adventure, and within those six years I got the journey of a lifetime.

“I was a human, a vampire, a doppelganger, a crazy immortal, a doppelganger pretending to be human, a human pretending to be a doppelganger.

Don’t you, really, when you examine the English language? No, it’s a Hollywood star who is probably also a politician. You can still find it lingering in some books by authors of the twentieth century.

You realize that you can actually tell something about a culture if it has a word for something. Like “cougar.” Not the innocent ferocious animal, the term meaning an older woman who’s dating a younger man. There is no male equivalent because it’s perfectly acceptable for an older man to date a younger woman and no one needs to comment on it. Another old axiom can be found in some of Robert Heinlein’s books in which characters announce that they are “free, white, and twenty-one” and therefore able to do as they please.
