Theyhattan (they + Manhattan)

"Theyhattan” (they + Manhattan) is a jocular name to get the “man” out of the borough of “Manhattan.”

“I am offended by this. It should clearly by Theyhattan or Themhattan” was posted on Twitter by Hunt and Snare on May 7, 2017. “theyhattan” was posted on Twitter by freckle fetish on June 15, 2018. “Manhattan? More like Theyhattan come on liberal elite! How did you miss this one” was posted on Twitter by Corey Mullins on April 11, 2019.

“MAN-HATTAN SHE-HATTAN THEY-HATTAN WE-HATTAN” was written on a sign by Manhattan Mini Storage on June 11, 2022 (during Pride Month) and shown on Twitter and TikTok.

“@KathyHochul has signed a new law banning ‘gendered language’ for professions. Cannot say Salesman, Councilman, He/or Her--it was replaced with ‘they.’ Woke is now official in NY law” was posted on Twitter by Joel Fischer on August 19, 2022. “I feel bad for the citizens of Theyhattan” was posted on Twitter by Sydney Watson on August 20, 2022.

“Themhattan” (them + Manhattan) is a similar term.


Wikipedia: Manhattan
Manhattan (/mænˈhætən, mən-/), known regionally as The City, is the most densely populated and geographically smallest of the five boroughs of New York City. It is the urban core of the New York metropolitan area, and coextensive with New York County, one of the original counties of the U.S. state of New York. Manhattan serves as the city’s economic and administrative center, cultural identifier, and historical birthplace. The borough consists mostly of Manhattan Island, bounded by the Hudson, East, and Harlem rivers along with several small adjacent islands, including Roosevelt, U Thant, and Randalls and Wards Islands.
(...)
Etymology
The name Manhattan derives from the Munsee Lenape language term manaháhtaan (where manah- means “gather”, -aht- means “bow”, and -aan is an abstract element used to form verb stems). The Lenape word has been translated as “the place where we get bows” or “place for gathering the (wood to make) bows”.

It’s terrible. Nobody’s going to care, it’s what I came to know the terms as. Shoudl we rename New York becuase it isn’t New anymore too? What about THEYhattan? This is what time and effort of governments is going into instead of diseases/hunger/homeless everyone.

Law makers in NYC are entertaining the idea to change the name of Manhattan to Theyhattan after 50,000 petitions were signed stating we should not assume the gender of this Burrough. This is different than the 2012 petition that did not pass to change the name from Manhattan to

Ça fait penser à la pub super cringe, “MANhattan, SHEhattan, THEYhattan, WEhattan”—sauf qu’ici, au moins, le procédé fonctionne:

It’s reminiscent of the super cringe ad, “MANhattan, SHEhattan, THEYhattan, WEhattan”—except that here, at least, the process works:
