Peoplekind: Has Trudeau Lost His Mind?

The Canadian prime minister, Justin Trudeau, has come under fire for “mansplaining” and being too politically correct after he interrupted a woman and lightheartedly corrected her for saying “mankind” not peoplekind at a town hall event in Canada on Friday.

His correction came at the conclusion of a longwinded question from an audience member that, over the course of three minutes, included a discussion of her church and the special power of “maternal love”.

The questioner ended by asking Trudeau to look at laws surrounding the charitable status of religious organisations, saying, “maternal love is the love that’s going to change the future of mankind”. To which Trudeau said: “We like to say ‘peoplekind’, not necessarily ‘mankind’, because it’s more inclusive.”

His comments have drawn ridicule from conservative media who have seized on them to accuse him of “virtue signalling”, being too politically correct and for “mansplaining”, a term coined by a feminist author and popularised by feminist discourse.

The Australian conservative commentator Rita Panahi said Trudeau’s use of peoplekind was an attempt to “appease those desperate to find offence where none exists”.

However, some have suggested that the rightwing furore surrounding his comments has been manufactured in bad faith.

Daniel Dale, Washington correspondent for the Toronto Star, said that the “pile-on” was misleading as Trudeau was “lightly ribbing a woman who was rambling about the power of women” and accused it of omitting important context. Full Story

Canadian PM Justin Trudeau ridiculed after telling woman to use the word ‘peoplekind’

CANADIAN prime minister Justin Trudeau has been ridiculed after telling a woman to use the word “peoplekind” instead of “mankind”. A video emerged yesterday of Mr Trudeau hosting a Q&A session during which the woman said that “maternal love is the love that’s going to change the future of mankind”.

He then interrupted her and said: “We like to say peoplekind, not necessarily mankind, because it’s more inclusive.”
The audience at MacEwan University in Edmonton last week can be seen applauding but others accused the 46-year-old of taking political correctness too far.

Twitter user Julia Perotti said: “Did everyone hear about the word Justin Trudeau created? It’s so new that it’s not even in the dictionary!”
Another user posted: “What a joke. We have gone over the top.” Full Story
