Cuilionn: I have grown to admire and respect you but "humanhood"? If we need a gender inclusive word this one isn't it. I am all for gender inclusive words but brother and sister do not translate to human. On the other hand, I can't think of one word that can stand for sister/brotherhood. As for God Her/Himself, He/She is beyond gender and hence the substitution doesn't bother me. - Philip Hudson
