The word "ombudsman" comes from old Norse, and it means "representative".

You know what that means? That means that when you try to be gender-neutral by saying "Ombudsperson", you sound like a stupid asshole. The "-man" at the end isn't a reference to gender. It's like trying to make "menopause" gender-neutral by saying "personopause". Jackass.
