Quote: Marines set to change titles to replace 'man'

As the Navy and Marines prepare to alter dozens of military titles to conform to gender-neutral terminology, the Air Force is bucking the trend and will be keeping the "man" in airman.

The call to revise numerous service designations came after a December decision by Defense Secretary Ash Carter allowing women to apply for all military jobs. In January, Navy Secretary Ray Mabus wrote a service-wide message calling the move "an opportunity to update the position titles."

The Marines are set to rename 19 titles. In most instances, the term “man” will be replaced by “Marine,” so “Basic infantryman” would become “Basic infantry Marine.”

After hearing about this, I'm wondering when the push to remove man/men from woman/women. Seems to be the next logical step, right?
