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.

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.

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

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?
This is a mans world baby, denial is not a river in Egypt.
Maybe they should be called Princesston.
