Looks like Tammy’s The New Thought Police is alive and well:
According to the new “bias-free word guide,” you can no longer say: ‘Going Dutch.’ You must now say: “splitting the bill.”
“Caucasian” is also out. Now, it’s “European-American.”
And, no more “rich” or “poor.” From now on: “person of material wealth” or “person who lacks advantages that others have.”
Via Campus Reform:
“American,” “illegal alien,” “foreigners,” “mothering,” and “fathering” are just a handful of words deemed “problematic” by the University of New Hampshire’s Bias-Free Language Guide.
According to the university’s website, the guide “is meant to invite inclusive excellence in [the] campus community.”
The guide defines words such as “homosexual” as “problematic,” offering “Same Gender Loving” as a more inclusive substitute. Similarly, a lack of gender-neutral bathrooms is, according to the university, “ciscentrism.”
The university defines “ciscentrism” as “[a] pervasive and institutionalized system that places transgender people in the ‘other’ category and treats their needs and identities as less important than those of cisgender people.”
….Terms also considered problematic include: “elders,” “senior citizen,” “overweight” (which the guide says is “arbitrary”), “speech impediment,” “dumb,” “sexual preference,” “manpower,” “freshmen,” “mailman,” and “chairman,” in addition to many others….
“UNH graduate” now: “government drone”
So this is the forward in the Guide:
“In a democracy, recognition matters. Everyone wants to be seen as who they are.
If they are not, then it’s impossible for them to enjoy the experience of being full citizens. -Melissa Harris-Perry”
I see who you are. You’re the MSNBC tampon earring anchor. Recognition matters.
One word: Newspeak.
I went thru ‘The Guide’. This would be the perfect ‘orientation’ document for the ‘Re-Education Camps’. Of course, some ‘persuasion’ would be required to fully brainwash the subjects, like in ‘Room 101’.

Acck! My head is hurting. I must be getting more and more intolerant in my not-so-younger years. This just sounds like a bunch of liberal crap to me. Will we ever get the weak and timid out of places of influence and authority so this country can return to “American” greatness?
If Tammy’s books were required reading in high schools across the country, would do wonders to push back against this kind of liberal logic.
All Hobos must rise up!
