Political Correctness will be the death of us yet!

The picture and article below are from Chicks on the Right. If you haven't seen their website, it's worth checking out!


I’m warning you right now, that the level of stupidity I’m going to write about in this post could very well make your head explode.  If you have high blood pressure, or have reached your tolerance limit for incredibly stupid politically correct bulls*t, then you probably should just skip past this post and save yourself a potential trip to the doctor. 
If you’re still with me, then I would like to inform you that the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill hasremoved the word “freshman” from all of its official university documents, because that term is not “gender inclusive” enough. In fact, they made this change 3 years ago, but only recently did a Stossel story uncover it.
I’m not making this up, you guys.  The word “freshman” dates back to the freaking SIXTEENTH CENTURY, but UNC, being “progressive” as they are, wants to make sure that no one gets offended by being called a word that potentially excludes their gender. Their plan?  To use terms like “first year student” instead. 
University spokespeople won’t elaborate on the reasoning behind this.  Because there is no reasoning behind this.
But you know who IS elaborating about it?  Students with Actual Brains.  The executive vice chair for the college Republicans, Brandon Hartness, said, “I feel like they are making a big deal out of nothing.  Girls are not going to deem the word “freshman” as sexist.  I feel like most people don’t even think about it.”
Brandon is exactly right, of course, but probably should have been more specific and said that girls with Actual Brains won’t deem the word as sexist, and that most NORMAL RATIONAL people don’t even think about it.  That way, he’d account for the remaining moronic imbeciles who think this word change is a good idea.
This is the kind of crap university administrators are getting paid HUGE AMOUNTS OF MONEY to think about and act on, you guys.

  1. Ha,ha. It just goes to show you that the people at the top continue to place undue importance on themselves. They forget that in most industries they are support functions to those on the front lines. Your profession of teaching is a perfect example. Administrators are nothing more than support functions to help teachers,that interact with the students & parents daily, on the front lines have what they need to accomplish their mission. Great post!
