Now, even courtesy and manners are viewed as offensive by some idiots! From National Review's reliable Katherine Timpf: CUNY: Don’t Call Students ‘Mr., Mrs. or Ms.’ Because That’s Maybe Disrespectful. "The policy is intended to 'ensure a respectful, welcoming and gender-inclusive learning environment . . . and to accommodate properly the diverse population of current and prospective students,' according to the memo, signed by interim provost Louise Lennihan." I have a better idea -- call them "hey, you."
Surprise! Al Jazeera English is banning certain words, "including 'terrorist,' 'militant,' 'Islamist' and 'jihad.' 'One person’s terrorist is another person’s freedom fighter,' the Al Jazeera executive wrote." Let's just call them "IslamoNazis" instead and get it over with.
