Let the indoctrination continue!

I hate this PC crap. Look at the UK for example and their stupid use of the word "partner". No, it's a husband or a wife or a boyfriend or a girlfriend.

In general, the progressives and SJW's take offense on another's behalf, whether or not anyone was actually offended. They invent reasons to cry about something. Did a bunch of cleaning ladies come out and say that term is offensive? No, because that's what they are.

The hypocrisy in all this is that all this is offensive to men and woman who have now been told that being a man or a woman is offensive and it needs to be stripped to a more neutral version. There's nothing neutral about it. If my mom had balls I wouldn't be here.

I don't see the problem with this. Actress has been slowly replaced by actor for both genders. I imagine it would happen for other words that describe other jobs.


"Revised: All participants must present their ID badges at the door."
That actually makes more sense. Using her or his would not be accurate if the group is of mixed genders.

Faux outrage at making language more grammatically correct and more clear.

"stupid is as stupid does"

does this mean that soon people won`t be allowed to refer to themselves as hyphenated americas?

an asian male was born both male and asian but now he can only refer to himself as an asian american person, or will he also soon not be permitted to refer to himself as asian.

in both cases he was born with those attributes.

people who obsess over petty things like this,to the point where they actually fight for it to be changed, have way too much free time and need to get a hobby or a real job.

People upset by revised wording continue to be upset by words while claiming words are just words.

Well I can't speak for anyone else, but for me this was totally just a comical blurb for me to laugh at the silliness of during my long boring ish work day...

I find it hilarious that these people don't realize they're
WARNING WARNING TRIGGER WORDS
shooting themselves in the foot. Parents [ like me ] have kids [ like mine ] who will not follow their PC crap. Like I said in another thread, my son has made it a rule not to attend any college that has "social justice" classes or is known for being a PC school.
Money talks louder than BS and when they start losing money, they'll come to their senses.

No no. It's starting to happen everywhere because we are about to transition to our new dimension where we slowly will all become gender neutral and eventually just beings made of light! 😆

Your son would deny himself an education at one the most name drop worthy schools in the world because of... words? Who exactly is the snowflake in that scenario?

It's called having principles.
"Name drop worthy" ....so....what he can do doesn't matter, it's just who's ass he kissed? Actually being qualified at his job doesn't matter, it's what name he can throw around?
Not the way he was taught.

ETA...
By the way. My son is interested in Engineering and this is one of the schools that's been trying to recruit him. Princeton can go fly a kite.

www.rose-hulman.edu... -no-1-in-national-survey.aspx

For the 16th consecutive year, Rose-Hulman has earned distinction as America’s No. 1 undergraduate engineering college, based on a national survey of deans and senior faculty conducted by U.S. News & World Report for its 2015 college guidebook.

Political correctness is intolerance disguised as tolerance. Their "inclusive" policies lead to more division.

Well there is a reason it's so name drop worthy. Also... words. You and your son, apparently, are bitching about people being sensitive to words, while letting your sensitivities to words dictate major life decisions. Pot meet kettle.

eyeroll
You just don't get it, do ya? It has nothing to do with words, it's that he'll be forced to give answers he doesn't feel are actually a reflection of his beliefs, to get through a class. Why should he have say "It all the white man's fault" just to kiss some professors ass and get through a course? Why Should He Have To Agree With Idea He Doesn't Believe In To Get By?
Do you even understand? You think he should just go along with all this BS, just to "get by". Agree with the snowflakes so he can get a good grade. Go against his own principles to get an education.
No. Not Happening.
If you can't see this is a matter of principle and standing on those principles is important, I can't help you.

I'm not really surprised but I am it came out of Princeton.

"Say what?! Where the hell did you go to school, Princeton?"

See? That sounds wrong, doesn't it?

Oooooooo, is that why Manafort was fired?

How do you get from gender neutrality to everything is white man's fault?

So while everyone is being triggered into false outrage here is a quote from the very first paragraph.


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.

Just more bureaucracy I'm sure the attitude at Princeton was that this change needed to be made and it probably wasn't controversial there. I always hate remembering to follow rules like this... okay, so it looks like this is a HR thing. That makes sense.

Will they have safe spaces for when a rebel, such as myself, refuses and continues to say man men as I see fit?

Who is going to man-up and tell me I am can't say man men?

Who?

This is a mans world baby, denial is not a river in Egypt.

Maybe they should be called Princesston.
