For a measly $235,000. It’s the best brainwashing money can buy

“Gender Inclusive” Princeton Becomes No Man’s Land

by Selwyn Duke

“There are some ideas so absurd that only an intellectual could believe them,” observed author George Orwell. And Princeton University is obviously replete with intellectuals, as evidenced by its new obsession: eliminating the word “man” from its Human Resources Department.

Man, what will they think of next?

It’s all outlined in a four-page memo that aims to make the workplace more “gender inclusive.” As the College Fixreports:

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.

The memo goes on to list a variety of occupations that typically include the word “man” in them and offers replacements: business person instead of businessman, firefighter instead of fireman, ancestors instead of forefathers, and so on.
