I really don't like texts written now because they try to make everyone feel included racially and sexually.
lol I think I remember Hardy writing in a preface to his Course of Pure Math text that in a previous edition he wrote like "a missionary talking to savages". I doubt that an author would be able to get away with a comment like that today!
