that is stupidly insanely stupid
Well yeah, but that's Oberlin.
When I was doing my graduate studies 5 years ago, I took a course where our professor specifically required that we use gender-neutral pronouns, and if we used gender-specific pronouns, we would be docked points.
It was the most ridiculous exercise in which I’d ever taken part. It was as easy as doing a Find/Replace for he/she/his/hers, etc. That didn’t matter, though. Her requirement was such that I wasn’t going to risk my studies because of her “gender queer” predilections.
$60k a year to learn bad grammar and perversity ;-)
Liberal logic - to avoid offending a person who is confused by his/her gender role - simply offend everyone else in order to neutralize the offense - redistribute feelings of oppression so everyone can feel oppressed.
Rush is right! Liberals want to redistribute wealth so everyone is poor. Same concept.
