Whilst writing our previous post; talking about my mother’s wife, my Mac (or perhaps the application I was using (Pages)), decided that it was acceptable to notify me that “wife” was a gender specific term and that perhaps the word “spouse” would be more appropriate in the sentence I was using.
Words are beyond me at the moment.
This couldn’t have come at the worst time (for Apple). Not only am I hormonal but I was writing about an LGBT issue in another form! It’s probably quite funny, really.
Anyway, I don’t really want to laugh this away, so if anyone has any ideas as to how I can properly address it, that would be wonderful. I have already emailed (sort of) Apple as well as LGBT charities such as Stonewall.
Wish me luck!
There’s always online petitions. Change.org is a good platform to use. At the very least it would generate some public awareness. I would gladly sign a petition to Apple on the subject.
I was going to start a petition once I received (or didn’t receive) a reply. Didn’t want to go in guns blazing before they sent their response.
Thanks for the help. 🙂
That’s just weird as almost all of Silicon Valley (Apple, Microsoft, etc) is very gay-friendly.
