University Thought Police Ban Gender Specific Pronouns – “oppressive and hateful”

Most people are aware that far from being the most intelligent humans, university professors are the most stupid of humans, but how far out of touch with reality and absolutely idiotic American University teachers have become, thanks to the excesses of ‘liberal’ politically correct thinking will still leave you gobsmacked.

In the lastest manifestation of collective insanity afflicting the American education system, professors with at least two colleges are threatening students with failing grades if they use language deemed offensive by the fasctist left (no, that’s not a contradiction, although we associate left with liberty and individualism, those who now label themselves left wing are in fact the nastiest authoritarians, their desire for power and control makes tyrants like Hilter, Stalin, Mussolini, Mao Tse Tung, Castro, Idi Amin and Saddam Hussein look like reasonable, fair minded people.

“Offensive” and “problematic” terms include illegal alien and illegal immigrant as well as the gender pronouns he and she and male or female. Students could also face a failing grade if they do not “defer” to non-whites.

That’s right, in the new America young citizens who wish to pass their class and be accepted within the “progressive tolerance sphere” must conform to what is essentially the modern-day version of George Orwell’s Newspeak.

Course syllabuses for several different classes at Washington State University make clear that students will be punished if they use normal gender pronouns that their cultural Marxist professors have deemed “oppressive and hateful language.”

An article published by the Campus Reform website details, word for word, the instructions given to students by teachers at WSU.

According to the syllabus for Selena Lester Breikss’ “Women & Popular Culture” class, students risk a failing grade if they use any common descriptors that Breikss considers “oppressive and hateful language.”

The punishment for repeatedly using the banned words, Breikss warns, includes “but [is] not limited to removal from the class without attendance or participation points, failure of the assignment, and— in extreme cases— failure for the semester.”

Not to be outdone by thought policewomen Breikss, Professor Rebecca Fowler has outlawed the term illegal alien from being spoken in her classroom. Take note her response when questioned by Campus Reform as it is a classic example of leftist deflection.

Much like in Selena Breikss’s classroom, students taking Professor Rebecca Fowler’s “ Introduction to Comparative Ethnic Studies” course will see their grades suffer if they use the term “illegal alien” in their assigned writing.

According to her syllabus, students will lose one point every time they use the words “illegal alien” or “illegals” rather than the preferred terms of “‘undocumented’ migrants/immigrants/persons.” Throughout the course, Fowler says, students will “come to recognize how white privilege functions in everyday social structures and institutions.”

In an email to Campus Reform, Fowler complained that “the term ‘illegal alien’ has permeated dominant discourses that circulate in the news to the extent that our society has come to associate ALL unauthorized border crossings with those immigrants originating from countries south of our border (and not with Asian immigrants, for example, many of whom are also in the country without legal documents and make up a considerable portion of undocumented immigrants living in the country).”

Sadly this is not just happening at one college in the Pacific Northwest as demands for “inclusive” wording, aka thought control, have been reported across the country from California to New Hampshire. Words such as American have even been deemed offensive.
