The folks at the University of North Carolina for deciding that the word Freshman is, wait for it…. SEXXXXXIST!
Via Campus Reform:
The University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill has removed the word “freshman” from official university documents, citing as their reason an attempt to adopt more “gender inclusive language.”
We are “committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our community,” reads a statement administrators sent to Campus Reform on Wednesday.
“Consistent with that commitment, gender inclusive terms (chair; first year student; upper-level student, etc.) should be used on University Documents, websites and policies,” it continues.
How do such stupid, petty, childish people ever get in positions of authority? Somehow universities across the land have managed to survive using the term freshman, million of women have attended college, and been called freshman, but yet, these mental midgets think it is a problem somehow.
