#1 The word "Freshman" is banned as sexist10-02-2012, 09:38 PMThis week I take my show on the road to the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill, one of those "liberal" colleges. There the word "Freshman" is banned as sexist ("First Year", freshman are now called). It's a violation of the school's speech code to "explicitly or implicitly ask for sex" (So how does a student get there...).
Hadley Heath, a UNC graduate, says that debate on campus is stifled and if you're not a liberal... better keep to yourself.

Didn't you know? Liberals think we're all the same.
Be Not Afraid.

I always thought the rules of grammer allowed you to use the term man in a non gender sort of way....
I guess this would cause confusion for the transgengers......it would fuck them all up as they struggle with deciding who they are.

For some reason, we called them "Ying Yangs" at my high school. The freshman wing was the "Ying Wing".
Now the freshman have their own building.

If you have ever been to Chapel Hill, this would not be as surprising. Sadly...“A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others.” – Ayn Rand

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
