New York Gov. Kathy Hochul announced that the word 'salesman' will be replaced with 'salesperson' in state law just one week after banning the word 'inmate,' as critics slam rising crime rates in the state. 

Current bail laws in New York do not require anyone arrested of a nonviolent felony or misdemeanor to post a cash bond for release, which complements the overall rate in New York City increasing by 36 percent.

Other changes as a result of the decision include all instances of 'his' or 'her' being replaced with 'their' in all statutes regarding the real estate industry.

State Sen. Anna Kaplan, who sponsored the bill alongside Sens. Alessandra Biaggi, Samra G. Brouk, James Gaughran and Robert Jackson, said 'jobs have no gender' in her justification of the decision.

'But, unfortunately, many of our state's laws still use gendered language when (discussing) professions that are practiced by people of all genders,' Kaplan wrote

The law follows recent amendments made to state laws replacing the term 'inmate' with 'incarcerated person' to refer to people serving prison time.
