More PC Insanity: College Students Banned from Using “Mom” or “Dad” Because It’s Not “Inclusive” Enough

| |

Word by word, the language is being picked apart by the politically correct police on the most ridiculous grounds possible. Pretty soon we aren’t going to be able to use very many words anymore… not unless we want to (GASP!) offend someone.

In a world where governments are blowing up children with drones and calling them collateral damage in phony terror wars on a daily basis, social engineering has turned average people into walking arguments that the film Idiocracy was actually a documentary, busily wasting their time fretting over how offensive otherwise innocuous words are.

Human beings are mammals. A female mammal who has children has traditionally been called a “mother” or “mom,” to separate this mammal linguistically from the male version, who has traditionally been called a “dad” or “father”.

Well, not anymore in one Florida college classroom where a professor has decided that language is offensive because it isn’t “inclusive” enough.

Via the Daily Caller:

In the syllabus for her “Creativity In Context” class — a required course for any student pursuing a minor in Innovation — UF professor Jennifer Lee informs students of her four paragraph long classroom “communications policy” that she says will enforce “ethical conduct” in the classroom.

“The following policies and guidelines will be followed in this course,” the policy begins, followed by a bullet point instructing students to “Use inclusive language.” The policy mandates that students “[s]peak in a way that does not make assumptions about others based on “norms”, stereotypes, or one’s own identity or experience.”

The syllabus explains that this means replacing the words “boyfriend”/”girlfriend” with the more inclusive “partner” or “significant other.” The rule applies to conversations about married couples too: saying “husband” or “wife” is forbidden. Even the words “mom” and “dad” have a more “inclusive” alternative — students are told to use the word ‘family” instead.

So there is no such thing as a “mom” or a “dad” or a “husband” or a “wife” in that PC brainwashing lab er, classroom. Sounds like a good place for a mime to hang out…

By using the new words, Lee explains, students will be using speech that “is inclusive of alternative orientations and family structures, and free of stereotypes.”

Find one person walking around on this planet who didn’t have a mother and a father, if even only at the moment they were born? They got here somehow…

Pretty soon the only way to be “free of stereotypes” will be to not speak at all. Then they’ll have to move on to weeding out the offensive facial expressions. Take this all the way out and we end up in one of those dystopic futures like in the film The Giver where everyone is medically forced into having no  emotions at all because emotions are just too “dangerous” and “offensive”.

    This is an infringement on Free Speech, protected under the First Amendment of the Constitution. Just say “No” people, and speak freely and refuse to submit to the “PC police” types. Political Correctness is nothing more than forced submission to the bullying by those that lack the personal character and fortitude to get along with other human beings – and have been empowered to impose their fear and emotional immaturity on others.

    • Airb0rne4325

      In my experience “No” seems to be the hardest word in the English language for people to say. All this is ludicrous and insanity. Anyone tells me to not use the word mom or dad I will ask them is “Go F— Yourself” acceptable?

      • Tatiana Covington

        “Go Fuck Yourself” is perfectly acceptable. Much more honest than that whiney little thing, “Have a Nice Day!”

  • Jim

    What a bunch of bullshit. Mom, dad, husband, wife, brother, sister, have been around way longer than this confused college teacher.

  • BunE22

    It’s probably so the little snowflakes that never had a daddy in the home don’t feel bad.

    • Reverend Draco

      Again with the logic fail.

      The students didn’t do this – the professor did.

      Maybe she – like you – never had a daddy in the home?

      • Christine F.

        The professor “did this” so that the students wouldn’t possibly get their feeewwwings hurt, so no, his logic is valid.

        You’re that a**hole that goes around being contradictory on everyone’s posts, aren’t you?

        • Reverend Draco

          Only the stupid posts, Sunshine – only the stupid ones.

          I must have missed the part of the article where the students forced her to add this inanity to the class syllabus. . .

          • Christine F.

            I do love when the room temp IQ quasi-thinkers attempt to insult other peoples’ intelligence, nevermind that their cognitive ability is severely lacking in the first place.

            You don’t make sense. Loser.

          • Reverend Draco

            And yet I make more sense than you. . . I wonder why that is, cretin?

            Maybe because the actual room temp (Celsius, I might add) IQ is yours?

            Keep on truckin’ Sparkles. . . you might actually panhandle a clue someday. . . I seriously doubt it. . . but then, stranger things have happened (I’m sure they have, just based on sheer probability).

          • Christine F.

            Still blathering. Loser.

          • Reverend Draco

            Oh. . . nice job, one-trick pony.

          • Christine F.

            That’s funny considering you bleated the same bullshit to multiple posters.

            Loooooooooser.

          • BunE22

            I didn’t say the students did, and no one in this convo did. The teacher took it upon herself to protect her students from bad feelz, what don’t you get? Speaking of stupid, if the shoe fits.

          • Christine F.

            He doesn’t understand, he doesn’t have the capacity. Too busy pretending to have even a tiny iota of intelligence, preening for himself and himself only, I doubt this imbecile is found to be attractive by his preferred sex.

            Total loser.

          • Reverend Draco

            Speaking of shoes. . . who ties your laces for you?

  • John Pryce

    To which my response would simply be “No.”
    .
    “No”, of course, is a complete sentence in and of itself.
    .
    But rendered more fully, it would be “I’ve heard you and I understand what you say, but I will not comply with your wishes. No argument is necessary or will be offered by me, nor accepted from you. There is nothing you can do to convince me that there is anything positive or worthwhile about this idea. There is nothing you could say to make me accept this.”

      I’d mock her until she threw me out, things like that make me feel good for some reason :-)

      • Wags71

        I think I’d just blankly stare. It’s not even worthy of a response.

      • http://privacy.com MARCUS

        I’d have to fill her class with “you mom” and “that’s what she said” jokes. Prof would lose her mind before the first midterms.

        • http://www.shitsenders.com Я0llyJ0g3r

          Yup, stuff like that exactly! Get everybody laughing too, that’ll piss her off for sure… sometimes I miss school and getting thrown out, lol, good times :-)

  • doucyet

    How about you take your PCBS and insert it where the sun doesn’t shine sweet-cakes, and my dad would say cheers!

  • Unite2014

    Remind me again why anyone is stupid enough to pay for this so called education? Stop giving them your money and they quickly go away.

  • Mike

    Tell that non-professor to go to hell you will speak the way you want and she is free to be offended.

    • StevetheHun

      Then she flunks you.
      Of course, she’s certifiably insane.

      You can appeal to her bosses, if she doesn’t have tenure. The problem is, they’re probably certifiably insane as well.

      So, you can sue the hell out of the college. No skin off their nose, they have all the taxpayer money in the world to fight your case and to pay you off in the end.

      • Mike

        I would have to take the F and sue them, I am not going to play the political correctness game.

        • Tatiana Covington

          Suits me fine since I don’t give an F!

        • Reverend Draco

          And why would you want to play a game with your death (intellectual, moral, physical) as the ultimate prize?

          Only those verging on death grasp at such illusory straws. . .

  • StevetheHun

    UF= University of Florida?

    • PJ London

      no, merely UF = “Up – Fu**d”

  • whiteberry

    To which my response would be a good ole fashioned F*CK OFF IDIOT…

  • RandyJ/ProudSurvivor

    This only affirms my contention that America’s educational institutions have become nothing more than repositories of political indoctrination. The “educators” aren’t in the business of teaching or helping students learn how to think but, rather, what to think. It is being reinforced in such patterns of speech and behavior codes, relegating the classroom to little more than mental and emotional gulags. This is how the elites are actually “educating” the masses into slavery. By creating passive, whimpering clones of thought and speech, who are unable or, perhaps unwilling, to think, speak or act beyond the boundaries-indeed, mental fences-of their conditioning. They are certain to act in accordance with the strings the elites have bound them with-just like the marionettes they have become.

    • Reverend Draco

      They haven’t “become” repositories of political indoctrination – they were designed that way.

    • Reverend Draco

      Logic fail.

      The Professor is the one who pulled this shit – not the students – maybe she doesn’t know her father’s name.

      Kind of like you, maybe? Is that why you’re so rump-ruffled?

      • Christine F.

        Yep, you certainly are that kind of loser. Just as I thought.

        • Reverend Draco

          I’m sorry if your stupidity prevents you from thinking. . . but it’s all your fault, not mine – I’m not the one who told you to be a brainless choad your entire life.

    The dumb part is that people are actual listening to this mental insane basket case. And agree with this teacher and do what she says instead of protest it and call for the teacher to be fired.

    To create a stupid, uninformed, brain dead populace you begin in the schools.
    Done
    To keep the population passive and needy create crisis after crisis and never resolve any of them, keep people afraid.
    Done.
    To create a windfall of profit allow food sources to be modified and poisons to be included in as many crops as possible.
    Done.
    To keep the medical system going diseases must be created on a regular schedule and any health care workers who threaten to expose the criminality must be eliminated.
    Done.
    Wars are sources of profits and kickbacks and it makes no difference how many enemies we have as long as we are able to create the need for more arms and replacement parts.
    Ongoing.
    The economy is going to hell, jobs are not only non existent for the most part but the ones that exist are not worth taking, and the employers are so disrespectful of the workers it is an insult to report for work. When the paycheck comes it is a slap in the face. So many of the jobs out there are not being taken by thinking people and this will continue to spread. NO wonder they want to bring in new slaves, the ones here are worn out and dispirited.

  • 1in7billion

    Here’s what one of Prof. Lee’s students wrote about her a couple of years ago in ratemyprofessors.com:
    “Really enthusiastic, but also can be pretty annoying. She only wants certain opinions and will shoot down any other views in lecture. Told our class we ‘don’t have the right to have an opinion’ about some poetry. I wish I were kidding.”
    It’s obvious that this bigoted narcissist has no tolerance for dissenting viewpoints or independent thinking. She uses the classroom as a bully pulpit to shove her opinions and idealogically-crazed agendas down her students’ throats.
    Here’s a companion piece about another nutty liberal professor who took PC policing to a whole new level:
    http://www.infowars.com/professor-calls-cops-on-disabled-student-for-criticizing-feminism/

    • Reverend Draco

      So much for the idea that the students badgered her into the retardation of the class syllabus. . .

      • 1in7billion

        No, it’s obvious she doesn’t give a damn what the students think. They didn’t badger her into anything. She’s a leftist demagogue who uses her position to impose a political agenda on others. It wasn’t out of compassion for students from broken homes or “alternative orientations and family structures” that she wrote the policies and guidelines regarding speech. This woman wanted to turn the classroom into her own re-education camp, where she could correct the students’ minds and teach them libthink.
        By mandating that “inclusive language” be used in the classroom, she has effectively prohibited free speech that would otherwise be considered normal, non-offensive, everyday language.
        But, of course, this is the ultimate aim of political correctness and of libthink in general.
        Why the students didn’t immediately march en masse to the dean’s office and demand her removal is beyond me.

        • Reverend Draco

          Well said.

  • BlackJack77

    Needless to say, they couldn’t care less about offending Whites, heterosexuals or Christians. Be as offensive as you want with them! Also, why aren’t these people ever offended by anything that matters like our government arming and funding ISIS? They are like their fake environmentalists counter parts who are obsessed with CO2 but could care less about Fukashima wiping out large swaths of life in the Pacific Ocean.

  • freedixie

    The cultural Marxists are at it again. These communists are never satisfied. They want to change how we talk, change the names of schools and streets named after Confederates, stop people from using the term “Founding Fathers”, remove our flags and monuments, and now, to stop using “mom” or “dad”, but to use some whacko, left-winged, commie pinko terms. These Marxists need to be kicked out of the country.

    This is fcking insane. How far is this PC sht going to go before people say enough already? I refuse to be PC, and its cost me some friends, but if that truly bothered them, then they weren’t my friends to begin with. I call a spade a spade, and the potus a goatfcking muzzie bastard, but I call all muzzies that. I don’t care, If rioters are destroying property, burning and looting stores, and turning over cop cars, they’re n1ggers. If a Mexican comes here illegally carrying drugs and disease with them, they’re spix. I don’t care. I have great respect for blacks and Mexican Americans who raise their families, and stay with them, who provide their children with a good education, and support, and who don’t take handouts from the leftist government that only keep them in the chains of government slavery.
