One of many #Peoplekind memes that sprang up across the web. Image © –Stock Sheiki on Twitter
We like to say ‘peoplekind,’ not necessarily ‘mankind,’ because it’s more inclusive.Canada’s Global News reports that Piers Morgan himself, who made headlines for announcing he's leaving Good Morning Britain and heading State-side, just days after a TV interview with Trump in Davos - Trump's first international one, according to The Sun - sarcastically wrote about the #Peoplekind remark the following day, saying: “Mankind ended last night.”
"We like to say Peoplekind."
Um, who exactly is this royal WE?
Radical feminists? Leftist ideologues? Deranged SJWs?
Trudeau is a living meme. pic.twitter.com/rWTojs8QeN

Princess Trudeau is offended by the word “mankind” and wants people to use “peoplekind” instead.
A made up word... At least go with “humankind” you dumb fool.
I also heard he plans on changing Manitoba to “Peopletoba.”
Sorry for your culture-loss, Canada.

If Ridiculing a Woman is #Misogyny, then why isn't Ridiculing a Man #Misandry?
Aren't people being too Intolerant towards Puns aimed at Women; while being OK with them, when Men are at the receiving end?
Where's the God Damn Equality? Huh!!#RenukaChowdhury#RenukaChaudhary

The US-right-wing pile-on re Trudeau's "peoplekind" is pretty misleading.
He was lightly ribbing a woman who was rambling about the power of women, "God the Mother," and how the world needs womanly love. Fox excluded her response to him: "There you go, exactly. Yes. Thank you." pic.twitter.com/Wl4QIumWrA

#MeToo, #TimesUp, the Women’s March; these movements tell us that we need to have a critical discussion on women’s rights, equality and power dynamics of gender.He also regularly holds roundtables on the importance of diversity and equality and weaves the topics into the conversation:
Trudeau's California itinerary tomorrow/Friday: "diversity and equality roundtable" with tech-biz leaders; meetings with the CEOs of Amazon, eBay, AppDirect, Amgen; meetings with California Gov. Brown and Lt. Gov Newsom; speech at the Reagan presidential library.
