(KGTV) - Is California really banning Hunt's "Manwich" sauce because it's not gender-neutral?

No.

A meme going around is just satire, inspired by a proposed law in Berkeley.

That law would eliminate several gendered terms from Berkeley's municipal code.

For example, the word "manpower" would be replaced by "work force."

But there is no move to ban the word "Manwich."
