Liberal College Releases List Of ‘Offensive’ Words We Shouldn’t Use Anymore

Boston’s elite Emerson College has taken it upon itself to release a list of offensive words Americans should stop using at once.

Emerson College’s “Guidelines for Inclusive Language” has banned the use of the word homosexual when referring to a homosexual. And don’t you dare use the word “disabled.” That’s offensive. Much better to use “person with a disability.

Use gay or lesbian when describing people who are attracted to members of the same sex,” the guide instructs Americans. “Avoid the use of homosexual and homosexual relationship.

The guide does not appear to provide reasons for any of the new rules in its 1,440-word “Inclusive Language” guide, besides the fact that they are “offensive“.

They have also banned use of the word “businessman.”

The handy guide to politically-correct words and phrases also informs writers to use several clunky terms including “business executive” instead of “businessman“, “camera operator” instead of “cameraman” and the potentially confusing “chair” instead of “chairman.”

Other words that have been consigned to the dustbin of social justice history, according to Emerson College, are policeman, manmade, mankind, layman, spokesman and manpower.

Additionally, the Daily Caller reports, Emerson demands that you should use the phrase “person with a disability” instead of the totally different “disabled person.”

Community members should avoid using language that is insensitive to cultural differences or that excludes or offends any group of people (based on their ability/disability, age, ethnicity and race, gender, gender identity and sexual orientation, etc.),” a general statement at the beginning of the language guide says.

Student, faculty members and officials on Emerson’s campus in Boston should ask themselves “whether it is appropriate” in any piece of writing “to share a particular fact about a person (pertaining to social identity, e.g., age, ethnicity).

Campus Reform, which first spotted the Emerson guide, reached out to Emerson officials for additional background.

No Emerson spokesman replied.

The cost for a single year of tuition, fees and room and board at Emerson is $59,728.

Notable Emerson alumni include Jay Leno, a bunch of random actors and, of course, Henry Winkler.

    does that mean the spastic kid that lives next door to me should never be referred to as a retard?…. what about his backward brother is he supposed to be referred to as adhd? should their prostitute sister not be referred to as a crack whore?….. and what their father should he not be referred to as an alcoholic c u n t?…I am sooo confused with all this

      Definitely NOT the reference to “their father” that’s sexist!!!

    it’s OK to kick the crap out of a person because he voted for Trump, BUT you MUST NOT call him a “businessman” while doing so.
    Incidentally, for one thing, a businessman is a self employed individual such as a shop owner, whereas a business executive is an EMPLOYEE in a corporation. THEY’RE NOT EVEN THE SAME THING! Too bad they don’t understand plain English before writing their ridiculous rules.
