Gender Neutral - Solution to the problem

If you believe in equality for women or for promoting gay or lesbian rights, or for equal parenting, then one of the simplest solutions in the world is to replace the legal terminology. Instead of talking about violence against women, let's talk about violence against domestic partners. Instead of talking about a father's rights, lets talk about a "parent's rights". Instead of talking about gay rights, let's talk about human rights. Gender neutrality in our legal system, in our social system, and in our media creates a focus on the actual problem and that is the quickest way to solve the individual issues. Write laws for all people equally, not for men, not for women, not for African Americans, not for lesbians, not for Christians, but for all humans equally.
