Oh, boy.  So now do we get to declare a moratorium, &c., on all the
insulting, abusive, degrading & violence-inciting terms applied, from time
immemorial, to the much larger, in fact world-wide,  population of female
human beings?

Why didn't they simply state that they deplore the use of this word & ban
its use under penalty of a fine, or whatever, within their  council
