Princeton HR department style guide eliminates the word “man”

Princeton HR department style guide eliminates the word “man”

What is it with higher education and the curtailing of speech? I am really getting fed up with these guides that purport to promote “gender inclusive” language. Starting with the word “inclusive” – right there it is enough to make George Orwell turn over in his grave. What they are really doing is excluding gender from language. Does anyone stop and think while they are scurrying about eliminating words from language, that they might not be “progressing,” but becoming their uptight forefathers, whoops, I mean ancestors?

Princeton shield
Princeton shield and flag: The motto, “Dei Sub Numine Viget,” translates as “Under the Protection of God She Flourishes.” Better get to work on that motto, totally un-PC.

The latest guide excluding gender references has emerged at the HR department at Princeton University. “Gender-inclusive language is writing and speaking about people in a manner that does not use gender based words.” I’ve got news for Princeton, that word “man-ner” looks awfully suspicious to me. I think they are sneaking in some evil masculine message and I am not going to let them get away with it.
