    I prefer “humankind.” It has deep roots, although possibly not to a source acceptable to the French or French Canadians.

    “humankind (n.) the human species," 1640s, from human + kind (n.). Originally two words. Middle English had humaigne lynage "humankind" (mid-15c.).” Etymonline.com

    I think Canada's reaction to Trudeau's clumsy pompous virtue signalling is meaningless as long as they remain conspicuously silent about Duchess64.

    Trudeau has backed off, admitting it was a dumb joke.

    Our species is called man. That includes the girls. Obviously a male invented this nomenclature.

    I kind of liked Peoplekind, more politically correct in this day and age than saying mankind.

    Using peoplekind doesn't leave out the women, which is quite an issue here and all over the world as they don't want to be treated as second class cticzens which has gone on for Century's actually.
