                      A London fire station's tweet calling out popular British kids' show "Peppa Pig" for using sexist language has spread like wildfire – and sparked a debate about gender specific wording.

                      伦敦一家消防局在推特上指责英国儿童节目《小猪佩奇》使用性别歧视语言,这条推特发出后迅速传播开来,并引发了一场关于性别特定措辞的热议。

                      In a "Peppa Pig" episode called "The Fire Engine," Peppa's mother is dressed up as a firefighter and the narrator says this:

                      "Mummy pig is dressed as a fireman."

                      在《小猪佩奇》的《消防车》一集中,佩奇妈妈穿着消防员的制服,旁白这样说道:“佩奇妈妈穿成了消防员的样子。”

                      That's when the London Fire Brigade chimed in on Sunday.

                      伦敦消防队于周日介入这件事

                       

                      性别歧视

                       

                      “拜托@小猪佩奇,我们已经不是fireman都30年了。你们的用词对孩子有很大影响。使用过时的刻板词汇会?#38376;?#23401;不愿意当消防员。”

                      The tweet has racked up more than 600 comments with mixed reviews of support and disgust.

                      这条推特已经收到了600多条评论,评论褒贬不一。

                      "Fight fires, leave politics alone," responded @FroggattSteve.

                      “救火就行了,不要跟政治扯上关系”

                      "We agree! You have to see it to be it, and subtle language does influence choices," said @ntjustaprincess, which @LondonFire later retweeted.

                      “我们同意!你必须看到什么就是什么,微妙的语言确实影响选择。”
