When referring to the President of the US, should it not read he/she or (s)he? I understand that the US has only had males as presidents, but there is nothing that says that the US president has to be male. --chris 00:26, 16 June 2006 (UTC)
Let's cross that bridge after a female is sworn in as president. Also, perhaps I am very "old school" in understanding "he" as the English gender neutral 3rd person singular pronoun (in the same way that "actor" can refer to an actor or an actress). Perhaps it was all those years learning other languages, where users are comfortable disassociating linguistic gender for physical gender. In German, for example, a girl is an "it." — Eoghanachttalk 13:09, 19 June 2006 (UTC)
Hmm, I have not seen 'he' used as a gender-neuter term, but then again, I come from a country where français is taught alongside English, and in French there is no such thing as gender-neutral. Even chairs have genders. How about using the singular-form 'they?' --chris 19:08, 19 June 2006 (UTC)
This should be updated to reflect President's Bush declaration of the MTMNM January 6, 2009. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 05:22, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
Merge with National Monument (United States)
Is there a reason why this and National Monument (United States) are separate articles? it seems to me that we can merge this article into that one and have a more complete, more encylopedia-like article. Most of the history is the same.--Iloilo Wanderer (talk) 03:17, 22 May 2014 (UTC)
I think the National Monument (United States) page should be merged somewhere, either here or with the List of National Monuments of the United States; This page is about the federal law establishing the authority to make National Monuments, while List page lists what Monuments exist. I'm not sure we need a third page merely defining what National Monuments are. 331dot (talk) 09:38, 22 May 2014 (UTC)
This discussion was started in two different places. Consistent with standard practice, please continue just one discussion, at the talk page for the merge target: Talk:National Monument (United States). --Orlady (talk) 20:50, 22 May 2014 (UTC)
