The College Fix - The Princeton University HR department has largely wiped the word ?man? from its vocabulary. The relatively new policy in effect at the Ivy League institution spells out the directive in a four-page memo that aims to make the department more gender inclusive. Instead of using ?man,? employees are told to use words such as human beings, individuals or people. Other guidelines? Instead of ?man and wife? use spouses or partners. Switch out ?man made? with artificial, handmade or manufactured. Don?t use the verb ?to man,? as in to work something, instead use to operate or to staff. Throw out workmanlike and replace it with skillful.What happens if someone in Princeton wants to watch one of the Batman or Superman movies? Do they have to say Batperson or Superbeing? What would Princeton human resources people call He-Man? That's a double whammy, isn't it! Can't watch old 80s cartoons anymore because HE-MAN has been renamed to BEING-THING. If this kid went to Princeton, then he'd probably get kicked out. This is also bad news for the game developers who released a No Man's Land. Now students and employees at Princeton have to play No Person's Land. Hooray for stupid.
Human resources at Princeton University are trying to get people to stop saying the word MAN. Yes, I know, that's literally one of the stupidest things I've ever heard as well. You would think that a precious Ivy League school like Princeton would have more intelligent people working in the human resources department, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Anytime to try telling people not to say a specific word, it makes them want to say it more. Then you remember that they're trying to tell people not to say MAN because it might offend someone who doesn't identify as a man and you're just shaking your head in disbelief. What the heck happened to America? This is literally the most laughable news I've read and reported on all week, man.
