DID you know that:

…the use of “@” was popularized during the early 2000s as a way to include both genders?

No? Well neither did we. Probably because it had nothing to do with gender, and everything to do with the fact that the only preposition with its very own symbol on a computer keyboard is the “@” symbol. (We’ll save you a google: other prepositions include “in”, “on”, “of,” and “to”).

Anyhoo, the California Board of Education’s curriculum for Ethnic sStudies contains the above factoid (and other gender gems), if you care to give it a read.


Warning, it could be traumatic for those sensitive to common sense assaults.

One thought on “Trauma in California”
  1. When I was a kid, “@” was “used as an accounting and invoice abbreviation meaning “at a rate of” (e.g. 7 widgets @ £2 per widget = £14)” (quote from Wikipedia). I remember thinking the symbol was a combination of “a” for “at” and “e” for “each”; the “per widget” is redundant. But what do I know, except I’m in punctuation hell here (excess and no doubt incorrectly used parentheses and quotation marks.)
    Looking forward to your stories 👍🏻 (appropriate color used.)
