The entire transgender movement is nonsensical and has devolved into a circle-jerk of bashing people for using non-offensive words.
A Northern Arizona University student was recently punished on an assignment after she failed to use gender-neutral language.
The student was penalized for using the word “mankind” by Dr. Anne Scott, who said that the student deserved to lose marks for not abiding by the rules of the classroom.
“Included with class rules were several examples of what was and wasn’t OK to use,” student Cailin Jefferstold Campus Reform Tuesday. “In one of these examples she stated that we could not use the word ‘mankind.’ Instead, we should use ‘humankind.’ I thought this was absurd, and I wasn’t sure if she was serious.”
The student was docked 2 percent for using the word mankind.
“I will respect your choice to leave your diction choices ‘as is’ and to make whatever political and linguistic statement you want to make by doing so,” the professor wrote. “By the same token, I will still need to subtract a point because your choice will not be made in the letter or spirit of this particular class, which is all about having you and other students looking beneath your assumptions and understanding that ‘mankind’ does not mean ‘all people’ to all people. It positively does not.”
Insane. Students should not be penalized for using words that aren’t offensive. Not everyone abides by the lunacy that is the transgender movement and they shouldn’t be forced to follow it either.
