ALERT: Popular University Makes Major Change… You Can No Longer Be THIS

Dean James III% AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

Yale University has kicked off the new school year by officially scrapping the terms “freshman” and “upperclassman” and replacing them with the gender-neutral terms “first year” and “upper-level students.”

“After beginning to roll out the new terminology in formal correspondence early last spring, University administrators have now begun the process of replacing the terms “freshman” and “upperclassman” with the gender-neutral terms “first year” and “upper-level students” in official campus publications, such as the Undergraduate Regulations and the First-Year Handbook.”

“The new terminology will likely appear in all publications and communications by the start of the next academic year, according to Yale College Dean Marvin Chun. Yale College Dean’s Office staff members were told about the change in an email last week, according to Director of Strategic Communications for Yale College Paul McKinley. Chun informed Yale College faculty about the change in an email Thursday afternoon.”

“It’s really for public, formal correspondence and formal publications … we’re not trying to tell people what language to use in their everyday casual conversations,” Chun told the paper. “We’re not trying to be language police.”

Chun applauded the “modern” terms, saying he hopes they will be used exclusively in all communications by next academic year, Fox News reported.

Rumblings for more inclusivity began last year, and by spring administrators began using the new terms.

The University of North Carolina struck the word “freshman” from its official documents in 2009, with the University of Emory following suit in 2015. Dartmouth College, Cornell University and Columbia University also use the term “first year” in most official publications.

In March, former Yale College Dean Jonathan Holloway noted that, for as long as he could remember, parents and students had occasionally expressed frustrations about the term “freshman” being gender-specific.

Here are some reactions to this politically correct garbage: 

“Amusing stuff. So Yale joins the rest of ‘Gender-Imbecile-Academics’, along with Harvard – which now advises ‘You can change gender daily!’…”

“Face it America – your kids would stand a better chance at a higher education locked in the nearest library 3 years…since the first one is generally ‘remedial’ anyway…”

Here’s another:

“Questions on the application forms referring to sex and race are at least incentive and I would argue, sexist and racist.
I suggest questions referring to sex, race, religion and any others that might be viewed as insensitive, be immediately removed from all forms at Yale.”

And this:

“Just out of curiosity, how much will this cost?

I assume that there’s a massive database of boilerplate notifications, pamphlets, brochures, and other correspondence, all carefully version-controlled. And I assume that every single one of those has to be accessed, read for the offending words, modified in a way that makes sense, resubmitted to the publication database, and, in many cases, re-printed in hard copy and exchanged with the existing stock of hard copy.

That sounds like thousands of man-hours (oops! staff-hours!) of work, all burdened at nice, juicy administrative wages. If you want to know why college costs are spiraling out of control, this is pretty close to a perfect example.”

And this:

“Upper Level” necessitates a “Lower Level” and thus a Supremacist way of thinking.

One more:

“This is like some strange form of OCD being thrust upon vulnerable young
minds. When the most intellectually gifted among us are reduced to
hunting down a bogeyman lurking in the words and letter arrangements of
the English language. When the rules of the classroom literally forbid
the use of gender pronouns. How can one even form a coherent thought or
communicate in any meaningful sort of way in such a stifling atmosphere?
When they have everyone frightened into apologetically self-policing
every word emerging from their mouths or entered into their Macbooks?”

You get the point.

So there it is folks.

Thanks Obama, you really did a number on America. Half the country are officially insane.

God Bless.
