Brookline is considering a measure that would replace “selectman” and “selectmen” with “selectwoman” and “selectwomen” as part of its bylaws, Universal Hub reports.

The idea apparently would be that even male members of the board would be “selectwomen” to drive home the point that if women shouldn’t mind being called “—- men” then men shouldn’t mind being called “—– women.”

*Apologies to Councilor Baker for choosing his name for the headline, but seniority does have its privileges and Baker was among the aldermen who opposed the change to city council.
