Ronald Searle: 'Although I am the last person on this shaky planet to dream of being cast in the non-bleating role of a sacrificial lamb sandwiched between the choppers of the Machos and the Amazons, I do realise that I am on more than delicate ground with a subject such as this. But the time does seem to have come for exercising the de-sexerciser or, at least, for having a second look at some of the more sombre sexist crannies of the English language. Unisex can go far in French, for example. Who, I wonder, was responsible for the decision that la barbe should be a feminine word? It could be, of course, that way back before everybody was in trousers, stubble also flourished regardless of gender. To this day, nobody seems to mind. But in our neuter English, there are some nasty anomalies that cry out for correction. Is it logic that men should monopolise 'menopause'? Out of justice, 'womenopause' must come. This little book is a timid footstep towards the establishment of a first slightly less sexist dictionary. Recommend it to your friends!'. Illustrated endpapers. Ronald William Fordham Searle (1920 - 2011) was a British artist and satirical cartoonist. (64) pag. Size: 22cmx17,5cm. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 029470
