University Bans List of Words for “Political Correctness”

6

A British University released a list of banned words yesterday. A list that would cause me to drop out of this university, had I attended.

Lecturers of Cardiff Metropolitan University were mainly banned from “gendered language” in a recent update, and says that “politically correct” alternatives should be used in order to “promote an atmosphere in which all students and staff feel valued”.

The rules are presented in the ‘Equal Opportunities Policy’, which warns disciplinary action will be taken if broken.

Here is the list of words.

Other rules include using ‘forename’ instead of ‘Christian name’ to avoid offending people of a diverse range of faiths.

And staff should avoid using the phrase ‘wheelchair bound’ because it is ‘patronising and pitying’, while ‘wheelchair user’ is ‘empowering’.

Even terms such as ‘headmistress’ and ‘headmaster’ as well as Mrs and Miss are considered offensive, according to the guide. Go fuck yourself!

  1. The average pom wont cop this shit very long.
    Any time you blokes want a hand and a few cricket bats give us a yell. We’re just south of the equator.

  2. Sportsmanship and fairness are not the same thing. Sportsmanship is about the way you treat your competitors despite the adversity. Fairness is being fair, sportsmanship is going above and beyond fair.

    Political correctness is retarded.
