Inclusive Language Quoting from Biased Material. Help with this sentence.
Back in the 1400s, the laws govening the people were quite specific. "All men shall tithe 10% to the church and pay taxes every six months. All men can attend school until they ae 16 years of age."
If this is a quotation, you must leave all the words exactly as they are. In the 1400s, you can bet that the MEN did the tithing and tax-paying and that MALES went to school, not females.
