Oh dear. Speeches from politicians, keen not to offend any voter, are about to get a whole lot more tedious... It was enough, once, to introduce a political speech with "Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears". Not now. Mark Anthony nailed it near the end of his speech, "O judgment! thou art fled to brutish beasts, And men have lost their reason." Because brutish beasts know they only have two genders, as nature made them.
