Professor will flunk students who refer to students as ‘male’ or ‘female’

Professor will flunk students who refer to students as ‘male’ or ‘female’, by Lisa Bourne.

Multiple professors at one college are using their positions of authority to regulate their students’ speech, threatening to flunk or even expel young people from class if they use certain offending phrases in class – like “referring to women/men as females or males.” …

White students in another Washington State class will also be penalized if they do not “defer” to their non-white peers.

And in another, they will have their grade lowered one point for each use of the terms “illegal aliens” and “illegals.”

In Michael Johnson Jr.’s “Race and Racism in U.S. Popular Culture” class students are required to “acknowledge” existence of various oppressions, including “heterosexism.”

Accuracy in language is out the window; Orwellian thought control is in.
