Princeton Bans The Word 'MAN' From Its Vocabulary

by Michael F. Haverluck: Princeton University is banning the word “man” in what it calls an effort to foster a more “inclusive community” — a policy that conservative critics contend is aligned with its campus politics that caters to the LGBT community.

The acclaimed Ivy League university is readjusting its accepted campus terms to do away words that could cause sensitive students, faculty members or school administration any bit of discomfort due to their gender preference.

“The first word on the chopping block is ‘man,’ because after centuries of it being used to describe the various socioeconomic factors associated with human civilization for centuries (and not offending anyone) the word is now ... problematic to some social justice folks,” Townhall reports.

Just the beginning …

Not stopping there, university officials are offering a new set of directives for those employed by the academic institution so that they employ proper terminology that should be used when communicating on campus at all times.

“Instead of using ‘man,’ employees are told to use words such as human beings, individuals or people,” The College Fix explained.

Also included in the newly prescribed terminology are swaps that must be made — so as not to offend the gender confused.

“Instead of ‘man and wife,’ use ‘spouses’ or ‘partners,’” the website’s report continued. “Switch out ‘man made’ with ‘artificial,’ ‘handmade’ or ‘manufactured.’”

Prohibited terms were also included in the LGBT-friendly lexicon — which is mandatory for designated school personnel to follow.

“Don’t use the verb ‘to man,’ as in to work something … instead use ‘to operate’ or ‘to staff,’” the instructions read. “Throw out ‘workmanlike’ and replace it with ‘skillful.’”

Mandatory word swap
Switching out gender-specific words for gender-neutral ones is the name of the game on the prestigious New Jersey campus, as the university’s memo demonstrates how a number of occupational titles that routinely include the word “man”must be changed. Some of the replacement items on the list are:
  • Use ‘firefighter’ instead of ‘fireman’
  • Use ‘business person’ instead of ‘businessman’
  • Use ‘ancestors’ instead of ‘forefathers’
The memo makes it clear that campus employees in Human Resources are expected to abide by the newly prescribed gender-neutral terminology in all verbal and written communications.

“Consistent with style guidelines issued by Princeton’s Office of Human Resources and Office of Communications, and as endorsed by the Institutional Equity Planning Group as a preferred University practice, HR has developed these gender-inclusive style guidelines, to be utilized by all HR staff members in HR communications, policies, job descriptions, and job postings,” the memo declares.

Princeton University Director of Media Relations John Cramer maintains that the school’s revised vocabulary mandate is indicative of the institution’s commitment to make the LGBT community feel accepted and comfortable on campus.

“[The guidelines] reflect the university’s initiative of fostering an inclusive environment,” Cramer told The College Fix.

Here are a number of terms listed under Princeton’s “Generic Terms and Expressions” sheet:
  • Don’t use: “average man” … Use: “average person” or “ordinary person”
  • Don’t use: “best man for the job” … Use “best person for the job”
  • Don’t use” layman” … Use “layperson” or “non-specialist”
  • Don’t use “man” (when referring to humanity) … Use “human beings,” “humanity,” “humans,” “individuals” or “people”
  • Don’t use “man and wife” … Use “spouses” or “partners”
  • Don’t use “man hours” … Use “person hours” or “work hours”
  • Don’t use “mankind” … Use “humankind”
  • Don’t use “man made” … Use “artificial,” “handmade,” “manufactured” or “synthetic”
  • Don’t use “manpower” … Use “personnel,” “staff workers” or “workforce”
  • Don’t use “to man” …. Use “to operate” or “to staff”
  • Don’t use “workmanlike” … Use “skillful”
Spreading to a campus near you?
Princeton’s adoption of the new gender-neutral terminology is by no means a policy that is unique to its campus, as its politically correct agenda is alive and well at a number of other universities that also embrace the LGBT lifestyle.

“A number of other universities have established similar guidelines in an effort to promote gender-inclusive language, including UNC-Chapel Hill, the University of Tennessee and Marquette University,” Townhall’s Matt Vespa announced.

In fact, policies attempting to be more politically correct have also spread into school curriculum, as Princeton’s Ivy League neighbor to the north in Connecticut is being pressed to phase out certain literature because the authors belong to a particular gender and race that is no longer deemed by progressives as being representative of the new mindset sweeping America’s college campuses.

“Yale, another member of the Ivy League, has faced student-led efforts to reform its English literature offering because too many of the English authors studied in the courses are white men.”

@arra Unbelievable (though sadly, I believe it). This PC BS is a key factor in why so many people are supporting #Trump.

Heather, Wonder if Princeton banned the word women - will they be "Wo." Princeton has fallen far from the ideals of John Witherspoon.
