California’s Stanford University has put out it’s latest woke edict of what words it wants to ban on campus and has proclaimed the word “American” to be a word too evil to utter.
Stanford has published its latest index of purportedly “harmful language” that it wants to expunge from campus. Being a good, left-wing, Californian school, of course, it has deemed “American,” among other common, inoffensive words, to be on the nix list.
Like the good fascists they are, Stanford says the ban list has been released to eliminate “harmful,” “racist,” “colonialist,” “gendered,” and “ableist” language from campus.
Per Fox News:
Among the words the university urges people to avoid in the imprecise language section is the term, “American.” People are instead asked to use “U.S. Citizen” because “American” typically refers to “people from the United States only, thereby insinuating that the US is the most important country in the Americas.” The Americas, the index notes, comprises 42 countries.
Other terms deemed harmful in this section include “abort,” which offers the replacement of “cancel” or “end,” because of moral concerns about abortion; “child prostitute” is replaced with a “child who has been trafficked,” so the person is not defined by just one characteristic; and “Karen” is replaced with “demanding or entitled White woman.”
Under the ableist section, the index urges people to use “accessible parking” instead of “handicap parking,” “died by suicide” instead of “committed suicide” and “anonymous review” instead of “blind review.” It also says people should use “unenlightened” as a replacement for “tone deaf,” and a “person with a substance abuse disorder” as a replacement for “addict.”
Parents, you really are a sap if you waste your money on this leftist indoctrination center posing as a university.
