Dykes at Princeton University are banning all words that have the term “man” in them. The precious snowflakes are triggered by that oppressive word, you see.
But what if my last name were Goldman? Would my name be banned too? And if I were German, there’s a “man” lurking there.
The left is batsh*t crazy and getting crazier by the day.
The Princeton University HR department has largely wiped the word “man” from its vocabulary.
The relatively new policy in effect at the Ivy League institution spells out the directive in a four-page memo that aims to make the department more gender inclusive.
Anytime you hear the word “inclusive” or its variants it’s time to go on high alert. That word justifies all manner of attacks on personal freedom by the left. Hillary uses that damn word all the time, damn her.
Instead of using “man,” employees are told to use words such as human beings, individuals or people.
princetonOther guidelines? Instead of “man and wife” use spouses or partners. Switch out “man made” with artificial, handmade or manufactured. Don’t use the verb “to man,” as in to work something, instead use to operate or to staff. Throw out workmanlike and replace it with skillful.
The memo goes on to list a variety of occupations that typically include the word “man” in them and offers replacements: business person instead of businessman, firefighter instead of fireman, ancestors instead of forefathers, and so on.
“Consistent with style guidelines issued by Princeton’s Office of Human Resources and Office of Communications, and as endorsed by the Institutional Equity Planning Group as a preferred University practice, HR has developed these gender inclusive style guidelines, to be utilized by all HR staff members in HR communications, policies, job descriptions, and job postings,” the memo states.
In a statement to The College Fix, John Cramer, Princeton’s director of media relations, said the guidelines “reflect the university’s initiative of fostering an inclusive environment.”
While Princeton’s language policy for its Offices of Communications and Human Resources, Princeton’s LGBT Center also offers a guide on various gender pronouns for those who identify as “transgender, genderqueer, and other gender-variant,” suggesting “ze, zie and hir,” “they and theirs,” and “Ey, em, eir and emself.”
Many universities have also encouraged the campus community as a whole to use of gender neutral or gender inclusive language.
Last year, the University of Tennessee’s Office for Diversity and Inclusion suggested students use the pronouns ze, xe, hir, hirs and zirs, along with others, for those who don’t identify with a particular biological sex. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Writing Center developed an exhaustive list of words that contain potentially biased or offensive implications, such as businessman, policeman, and even freshman, so that students might avoid using them in their writing.
None of this shit is about inclusion, whatever the f*ck that means. It’s about pathetic unhappy losers using their power to control sane, sensible people via controlling what words they can and cannot say.
There’s no question that students and professors will be forced to play this game, just like the HR people.
Which leads to that sage advice I always give in response to PC on campus: Never donate money to any university. If you receive an appeal for a donation, respond by dropping a note to the school briefly explaining why you won’t donate.
Money talks. If alumni band together to stop PC, it will be stopped.
