Maine legislators push to remove 'he' and 'him' from state's laws and replaced with gender-neutral terms

By Greg Norman | Fox News



A bill working its way up through Maine’s state legislature Friday is calling for words like “he” and “him” to be scrubbed out of the wording of its laws – and instead be replaced with more gender-neutral terms.

Rep. Matt Moonen, a Democrat, says he wrote the bill after reading through laws and finding references to mostly male figures in positions of authority.

"The law still refers to the Governor as he, him (or) his, and I kept looking and was increasingly baffled, as I found more places where that is the case," he said, according to News Center Maine.
