College Tells Students to Avoid Using Words Like Mother and Father

Post by FTW »

Springfield College in Massachusetts has created pronoun guidelines encouraging students to avoid using “gender specific” words including the grave sin of saying mother and father.

The guidelines state, “Springfield College is committed to valuing and validating the gender identity and expression of members of the campus community. Gender identity refers to an individual’s internal sense of gender, regardless of the sex assigned to them at birth or the sex designation on their legal documents.”

“One way that Springfield College seeks to create gender-inclusive academic, living, and work environments is by encouraging all members of the campus community to indicate the pronouns they use for themselves, if desired, in classes, residence halls, workplaces, and other settings, and by encouraging members of the campus community to respect these pronouns.”

“Gendered” nouns to avoid include: “mother/father,” “sister/brother,” “mankind,” “man-made,” “boyfriend/girlfriend,” “husband/wife,” “son/daughter,” “freshman,” and “congressman.”

This is just the latest salvo in the Left’s ongoing war on normalcy.

They’re trying to erase sex differences, to pretend that man and woman, father and mother, are just arbitrary categories,

It’s also another attack on plain language.

One of the main things taught to writing students is to say what they want to say in as few words as possible.

Leftists routinely ignore that prime directive; indeed, they often turn it on its head, inventing new, complex, multi-syllabic phrases to describe simple concepts.
