You Ignorant Sluts

Retards Are Us                       

Sarah Lawrence College wants all official school publications to adhere to a set of “Gender Neutral Language Guidelines” that prohibit the use of terms such as “brotherhood” and “mankind.”

While the guidelines specifically apply only to “publications and policy statements whose primary audience is enrolled students” at the college, the document does make clear that “reducing unnecessary gender reference in all materials is ideal.”

“Sarah Lawrence College has chosen to make exception to select grammatical rules (i.e. pronoun agreement).”   

In an effort to avoid confusion, the guidelines recommend including disclaimers on all gender-neutralized materials stating that “Sarah Lawrence College has chosen to make exception to select grammatical rules (i.e. pronoun agreement).”

The guidelines go on to suggest the usage of “plural non-gendered pronouns to replace singular gendered pronouns,” even while acknowledging that the technique is “grammatically incorrect,” explaining that “when absolutely unavoidable” the “exception” can be acknowledged “in the note recommended above.”

Meanwhile, the “recommended guidelines” suggest avoiding “conditional sentences introduced by if or when,” because such sentences often “require the use of pronouns.”

The guide concludes with a list of “gendered words” to avoid “by using substitutes instead,” suggesting, for example, terms such as “kinship” or “solidarity” in place of “brotherhood,” and neutral phrases like “nurturing” or “fostering” instead of “fathering” and “mothering.”

Blah Blah Blah

How likely is any business or institution that hires from schools like this going to be around five years from now?

Ha! "Sperm Doner". Is that a variation on doner kebab? Doesn't sound too appetizing.

Maybe Sperm Doner is Doner Kebab with "special sauce"?

If I had any kids needing college, I'd send them to school in India.
