Cardiff Metropolitan University formerly known as Cardiff Polytechnic may not be a seat of learning on a par with Oxford, Cambridge, Heidelberg, The Sorbonne or Princeton but when it comes to politically correct idiocy it is at the right up there with Harvard, Uppsala, University of California or The London school of Economics. The University has banned lecturers from using any sexist or insensitive words, lest they should ‘trigger’ Cardiff’s special snowflake’ students to an emotional crisis. The list of banned words is more far reaching than you might think. Here are few examples (source: Zero Hedge)
And please, try to avoid words like “mother” and “father” unless you can say “mother and father” together. Yes, the article states that.
Gee, is there an order for this? Yes, there is. It better be random. Always saying mother first could get you in trouble. The article did not say but the phrase “ladies and gentlemen” clearly has to go.
According to the guide, Mrs. and Miss are considered offensive. Clearly, it’s best to avoid gender-identifying terms altogether.
What happens When these culturally-trained “snowflakes” hit the real world outside of their safe-space university?
Hmm. Am I allowed to use the word “snowflake” like that? Apologies offered for my unsportspersonslike conduct.
