More intolerance disguised as education...

TIL: calling Freshman "1st year students" is intolerance.

They keep going like this and their degrees are going to be worthless.

Same goes for the rest of the US education system that has adopted this political indoctrination over education mentality.

It'll be a fun day when a degree from Harvard is worth about as much as one from Patriot Bible University

Princeton was first called the "College of New Jersey", but later changed it's name to reflect the town where it's located.

Before long it will be wrong to call myself a man and not just a person.


This is how English has been evolving for 15 years now, what's wrong with the schools keeping up with the changes?

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.


Well...

1. He has heard "It's all the white man's fault" but he's never sat through a semesters worth of a professor making that argument.
2. I have never seen a professor mark someone down for a paper that disagrees with their beliefs as long as it's well supported and I have a lot of time in college, I would have seen it if it were the case.
3. Even if a professor did do that there's neutral bodies (especially at bigger schools) to appeal the grade.

I think your son just want to go to a school that isn't going to make him challenge his beliefs about the world.

I could try.

We have a concept in society that gender is fluid, his and her's describe 98% of people but it misses the edge cases so instead we went to the gender neutral pronouns of they, theirs, and them so that the language covers all of society rather than just the most common situations.

Though, if you're really curious about the question. The spoken language that has the best chance of being used with an alien species if Lojban and it doesn't have gender specific pronouns. It uses I, you, we, they, us, and so on.

You genuinely believe that an equal number of men and women apply to be "cleaning ladies"? I strongly beg to differ, having worked in those positions before.


Nah, generally these days when you apply for those jobs they are called cleaning technician or environmental engineer or something like that to make you feel important. It's when you get hired and are on the job that you get called cleaning lady or janitor (masculine equivalent).

Well the world has gone completely PC crazy. Princeton University Human Resources and Office of Communications issued a four-page memo filled with examples of gender-neutral terminology that must now be used in official school documents.

www.princeton.edu...

They cant say cameraman any more it has to be camera operator. No more "cleaning lady" has to be office cleaner.

Students are no longer freshmens they are now !st year students.


Students will no longer refer to other students as he, she, her, or him. In their guidelines, students are given ‘tips’ on how to properly scrub these very descriptive words from their vocabulary.
Replace gendered pronouns, e.g., he, him, his, and she, her, hers, by rewriting the text in the plural.
Example: Each participant must present his ID badge at the door.
Revised: All participants must present their ID badges at the door.

Both of my Daughters were considering Princeton. That is the end of that. Not by my choice but I know their view on this world and Princeton just lost two winners with near perfect records...and a ton of my money.

I love it when idiots screw themselves.

So the town should change its name? What was the town named after?

To be fair, before they've lost your money, your daughters need to get into Princeton, then they need to accept.

Additionally, if such a thing were to happen are you saying you're not going to let them get the education they want because of your own prejudices? What if you're the one whose wrong, then you're holding your children back to make yourself feel better.

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.


Well, you could always both rebel and comply by referring to everyone as 'it'. Can't get anymore gender-neutral than that.
