When I attempted to used the word “de-genderized”
         My computer rebelled.

It wants me to change “genderized” to“tenderized.”

Aha, thought I…
         That’s exactly right.

Our macho, masculine, male dominant language
          Needs to be tenderized.

So when you hear the word “de-genderized”
          Do a computer correction (in your head)
          To “tenderized.”

You’ll have the right idea.
