Remove the word “man” from its vocabulary? Leave it to the radical progressives at Princeton University.
In all seriousness, this is a thing!
Princeton – or should we start calling them Personton? – is wanting to remove all mention of the word “man” from its vocabulary. They refer to it as ‘gender inclusive language.’
Whatever the heck that is?
According to Princeton’s HR department:
“Gender-inclusive language is writing and speaking about people in a manner that does not use gender-based words.”
So, forget referring to all those ‘man hours’ you’ve been putting in. Refer to them as ‘person hours.’
No more can you be upset because the ‘cleaning lady’ didn’t empty your trash. Instead, you have to be slightly triggered that the ‘office cleaner’ didn’t empty your waste receptacle.
Good gosh man. OOPS!!! Sorry. Good gosh people. When will enough be enough?
