Yellen lays down the law, prefers gender-neutral title: Report
CNBC ^

Posted on 02/03/2014 7:22:10 AM PST by Red in Blue PA

Federal Reserve chief Janet Yellen has instructed the central bank's staff to refer to her as "Fed chair" rather than "chairwoman," The Washington Post reported on Monday.

The first woman to preside over the Fed in its history is striking a gender-neutral tone that belies her barrier-breaking history as an academic and a policymaker.

This says to me she’s a political animal first, and a central banker second. Just what we need/s.

I expect her to be the most destructive Fed Chair in history, but I agree that “Chair” is much better than “Chairwoman”.

“Chair” should be perfect and Clint Eastwood provided the definition.

LOL...you brought back memories of old Maddy Albright, who was mistaken for a hotel maid in North Korea. Of course, that insult didn’t deter her from her mission to give the Communists lots of US taxpayer cash so they wouldn’t build a nuke, another Clintoon fiasco that ought to be revisited when the other Clintoon runs in ‘16.

I can understand why Janet Yellen wants to be regarded as ‘gender neutral’. She's one of the coldest, ugliest creatures I've seen. Perhaps she's transgendered or is a he/she? If not, she was hit by an ugly forest.

I am not saying that she is unattractive, but even Laz wouldn’t hit it.

Why are women ashamed of being women? A Chair is a piece of furniture. Is that what she wants to be?

John has a long mustache and I’d like to line the chair up against the wall.

The proper title is "Chairman." The proper form of address is "Madam Chairman." So there!

Didn’t Eastwood already refer to someone in the administration as a chair?

Ya think there would be bigger issues to consider other than what you are called.

Just like Blacks with the negro, colored, black, afro-American, African American, monikeer worries and look where, as a whole, that has gotten them.

Do Asians or Jews worry about what they are called? Nope. They just keep reaching for the top.

She didn’t speak out when President Obama mistakenly referred to her as “Mr. Yellen,”...

Other than "It's Ms. Yellen you moron" what was there for her to say?

Capofamiglia, capo crimini, representante or Don are gender-neutral.
