The Left Targets The Word ‘Man’ As If It Were A Bias Or Hateful Term?

Purdue University plans to ‘teach the correct way’ to address ‘gender-bias’ words. Better put, the university plans to un-teach our students the proper use of gender-specific words, like policeman or policewoman.

Where does this leave the word ‘woman’ or ‘female’? According to Cathy AreuFounder of Catalina magazine, those words should be replaced with the word ‘person’ instead. She, along with others, believes this form of thinking will be widely used in the future. How would that work on something like a police report where it would be important to provide specific information about a suspect or victim?

Watch

According to Info Wars the Purdue University Online Writing Lab (OWL) offers a handout titled “Stereotypes and Biased Language”—which was updated just last week—that encourages students to “avoid using language that is stereotypical or biased in any way,” adding that biased language frequently occurs based on gender, “but can also offend groups of people based on sexual orientation, ethnicity, political interest, or race.”

“Writing in a non-sexist, non-biased way is both ethically sound and effective,” the OWL advises. “Non-sexist writing is necessary for most audiences; if you write in a sexist manner and alienate much of your audience from your discussion, your writing will be much less effective.”

As Reported By The Washington Examiner:

“Although man in its original sense carried the dual meaning of adult human and adult male, its meaning has come to be so closely identified with adult male that the generic use of MAN and other words with masculine markers should be avoided,” the site claims.

The formal recommendations include replacing “mankind” with “humanity,” “man-made” with “synthetic or machine-made,” “the common man” with the “average person,” and “man the room” with “stock the room.”

Additionally, writers should avoid the use of “man” for occupational terms such as mailman, congressman, policeman, and fireman.

Even the occupational terms once deemed politically correct, such as steward and stewardess, policeman and policewoman, are also taboo.
