A German university points the way:
The University of Leipzig has voted to adopt the feminine version of the word for “professor” as its default. In German Professorin refers to a female professor while Professor is the male equivalent. Under the new measures, written documents will use the term Professorinnen when referring to professors in general. A footnote is to explain that male professors are also included in the description.
This solves so many problems! I’m sure the likes of McRapey and McRacy will be delighted to henceforth be known as science fiction authoresses. They’ll probably throw on pretty dresses to celebrate this bold step forward in gender equity.
You know McRapey is just dying to break out his little red pumps again.
