In response to Re: Re Xiamen-on-sea? (FTinPRC)

"...and businessmen..."

ahem...

The PC brigade is lurking

"businesspeople", maybe?

Sorry, Arthur. I stand corrected.

No, no, Arfer, there probably weren't enough women there doing business to even mention! If she's said 'business-people' it would have given the reader a false reading of who was there on the auspicious occasion--whatever the auspicious occasion was. No NO No the reader would have had a restless night last night puzzling whether Trumpsey meant that the business types were half female and half male. Would it matter what sex they were?- well, we must give others the chance to decide that for themselves, we is not fascist is we? Well done , Trumpsey! Anyway, 'men' means women as well in that construction- ot didnt we know? Hahaha!
