Thank you Retriever, good points! :up:

I don't know if there's a non-gender way of saying 'gentleman’s agreement'... I think it's a generally accepted 'saying', not really gender specific, but I guess some could perceive it as such.

Taken from Cardiff Metropolitan University's Guide to Inclusive Language:
"Gentleman’s agreement" – Unwritten agreement, agreement based on trust

https://www.independent.co.uk/student/n ... 09521.html

Other examples given are "Unwritten agreement" or "gentle persons" agreement.

RE 'gentleman's agreement', I was not being absolutely serious, just having found the "he". I thought that the smiley would have given away that I was joking.

Can we make a gentleman's agreement that 'gentleman's agreement' is fine? :)

I figured it was probably Victas, but I’m also a little bit disappointed that it wasn’t Delifux! (cue HH thanking his new sponsor… ;) )
