UK: Soldiers are told to be more inclusive and avoid using words such as 'mankind' and 'sportmanship'

Article here. Excerpt:

'Soldiers have been banned from referring to each other as ‘lads’ in the Army’s latest gender equality drive.

Troops from 22 Engineer Regiment were told not to use the word because it may cause offence, even if no women are present.

Words such as ‘mankind’ and ‘sportsmanship’ have also been banned as the Armed Forces is remodelled as a gender-neutral organisation.'
