Insanity: The Word ‘Man’ Is Banned At Princeton University
By Town Hall,Aug 20, 2016
“It’s a beautiful thing, the destruction of words” is a haunting quote from George Orwell’s 1984, where free thought could constitute a crime in the totalitarian state of Oceania. That’s not necessarily the case on the campus of Princeton University in New Jersey, but they are doing their part in banning words to foster a more inclusive community—whatever that means. 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.
