What do I think?
I think far too many people are far too ready to scream and rant about things that have absolutely no impact at all on their lives, and that their basis for such ranting is nothing more than terror that the society around them is evolving in a way they cannot comprehend within their simple brains.

All the people ranting in this thread (and I know there are, before even seeing the responses) are ranting about things that change nothing in their lives, they just desperately need SOMETHING to be angry about.


Really?

Someday, my son might want to attend a university. It then impacts me if I have to deal with that craziness and am expected to pay for it.

If that's your biggest worry about what your son might encounter in college you have a lot to learn.

If you don't think he can deal with it, best not send him.

Male and female not allowed without penalty, that makes it better....

Multiple professors at Washington State University have explicitly told students their grades will suffer if they use terms such as “illegal alien,” "male," and “female,” or if they fail to “defer” to non-white students.

In a single Women's Studies class.
But show me where the words "him" and "her" are not allowed.

I corrected it to what it said. And regardless it's stupid. Can't say female in women's studies?????? Wow our future leaders.

College professors are not our future leaders. There have been wacky ones for...ever.

For the record, I think "women's studies" courses are pretty ridiculous in general.

Wasn't referring to the professors, referring to the students. Did you really try to make that as a counter point????

He is probably going along the lines of state university and tax payer funds. This really isn't that hard to follow

Do you even know what you are posting? I was making a comment about our future leaders, the students. Being taught that the term female is somehow wrong. Ie say it there is a penalty. Again the conversation isn't that hard to follow.

I think it is definitely a cultural change worth mentioning. It is true that there are certain situations that arise these days where pronoun usage has to be changed around, for example calling a natural girl "him" when he is transgender. It all gets a little confusing. I haven't heard of these entirely new pronouns before.

Are they really new? Gender-neutral pronouns are not new.

There have been efforts to mainstream them before. I guess there needed to be a stronger social movement of necessity.



In 1789, William H. Marshall records the existence of a dialectal English epicene pronoun, singular "ou": "'Ou will' expresses either he will, she will, or it will." Marshall traces "ou" to Middle English epicene "a", used by the 14th century English writer John of Trevisa, and both the OED and Wright's English Dialect Dictionary confirm the use of "a" for he, she, it, they, and even I. This "a" is a reduced form of the Anglo-Saxon he = "he" and heo = "she".

Any student taking a women's study class is well down that path already. Did you read the syllabus?



Again the conversation isn't that hard to follow.
Perhaps if you posted more than one or two lines it would help.

What's the syllabus have to do with not saying female in a woman's studies class?

No one else has this problem of following along but you even on a one or two liner

Did you read the article? You have ignored the two specific detail that refute your entire post.

www.campusreform.org...




Multiple professors at Washington State University have explicitly told students their grades will suffer if they use terms such as “illegal alien,” "male," and “female,” or if they fail to “defer” to non-white students.


The article clearly states multiple professors and it isn't confined to just one class.




Breikss is not the only WSU faculty member implementing such policies.

Much like in Selena Breikss’s classroom, students taking Professor Rebecca Fowler’s “ Introduction to Comparative Ethnic Studies” course will see their grades suffer if they use the term “illegal alien” in their assigned writing.





White students in Professor John Streamas’s “ Introduction to Multicultural Literature” class, are expected to “defer” to non-white students, among other community guidelines, if they want “to do well in this class.”


And the other quote I used:




The punishmentfor repeatedly using the banned words, Breikss warns, includes “but [is] not limited to removal from the class without attendance or participation points, failure of the assignment, and— in extreme cases— failure for the semester.”


In Breikss own words using banned words will be punished. Him and her denotes male and female.

Having trouble following?
The syllabus has everything to do with it. The class is about the oppression of women by the evil of men. Complaining about restrictions on the words used in the class is ignoring the forest for the trees.
