Does this herald the extinction of dustman?

    Blah, feminists need to settle down and get back in the bloody kitchen.

    Can't be feperson, shurely? Perhaps feper(non-gender specific end syllable) - feperbeing?

    On the other hand, if "man" is to be rejected, surely then "fe-" is also appallingly sexist. Which leads us to "??perbeing". Linguistically sensitive suggestions welcomed.
