The last slew of gender neutrality modifications include calling firemen fire tenders, fishermen fishers, ranchmen ranchers and gripmen grip operators.
And as commenter WordsMatter rebuts:
Fire Tender is ridiculous, and not because it's gender neutral. "Tender" connotes caring for or maintaining something. The Coast Guard has an entire class of maintenance vessels called Buoy Tenders and I assure you that their mission is not to eradicate navigational buoys.
Fire Fighter would be a far more compelling choice. But I'll bet at least one hyper-sensitive bureaucrat complained that it sounded too violent. I'm all for gender neutrality, but we should also be aware of the paralyzing and confusing effects of rampant political correctness. When we contort language to the point where our descriptions are no longer accurate, we invite the rolling of eyes.
