Apple is currently a bit strapped for cash and "can't afford" to fix anything except moving the deckchairs around the UI.

Ok thanks, I will try that. I thought of another example of the annoying green underlines: "gender specific." Why is that even necessary? I mean to use certain gender-specific words sometimes. Is there a way to turn that option off without turning off the whole spelling/grammer check?

Proofreading (grammar check) and Spelling check are separate functions, with separate on-off switches. You'll find them in the Edit menu"
The spelling switch is in the submenu immediately above this one. Selecting the item toggles the item between 'checked' (on) to 'unchecked' (off).
Accepting spelling as 'correct' requires only that the word is included in the spelling dictionary. If you see errors that the spell check does not mark, then the error might be of the type "there" used for "their", "soul" for "sole" or similar. Or it could mean your system language (and consequently, your spelling dictionary) is set to a language other than the one in which you see the spellings as correct. Or it could mean that you or someone else using your machine saw a word marked as incorrect and told the spell check to 'learn' that word. Once learned, that string of letters will be recognized as 'correct' until the spell check is told to 'unlearn' it.
