Mansplaining or person-plaining, Justin Trudeau’s ‘peoplekind’ sparks off online debates
During a Q&A session, Justin Trudeau interrupted a woman and told her to use the word “peoplekind” not “mankind”. After his timely interruption, the audience applauded Justin Trudeau as he said, ”We like to say peoplekind, not necessarily mankind.”.
This remarks sparked out some debates on social media and people started discussing mainly like, ‘Is Justin Trudeau mansplaining feminism?”
He wasn’t joking: Justin Trudeau interrupts woman during Q&A when she used the word “mankind.” He recommended that she say “peoplekind” instead. pic.twitter.com/mG61BlDcVU

Some still believes it as a joke
The girl was going on and on about her church’s belief in God The Mother without getting to an actual question. When she said “mankind”, Trudeau played off that and quipped about preferring “peoplekind”. An obvious joke.

worried? about what?
Next we're gonna get rid of "man" out of "woman" We'll just call them Wo.

Pretty clueless to interrupt. And "peoplekind" is horrible, "humanity" is a perfectly good word – which he could simply have used in his answer.

Cant avoid this!
That’s the interest mr. Trudeau had in her speech, only worried of her using the political correct stupid word. Disappointing…

Some serious argument! very very serious!~
No point throwing your credibility out there by trying to do some damage control for him. Don't be his scapegoat!

Twitter leaves nobody! Call Neil Amstrong now!
Let Neil Armstrong know “One small step for people one giant leap for peoplekind”

This goes deep!
This isn't feminism. This is dickheadism.

I bursted out laughing when @JustinTrudeau said this. How does a person take this guy seriously?

And the manner in which he did so: so arrogant/condescending/patronizing. Some claim he intended it as a joke, which would be the only way that the preceding description would not be applicable; I personally did not get that sense.
