Purdue writing guide says avoid use of words with ‘man’


WAS MAN EXPLAINING TO CANADIANS THAT THEY SHOULD NOT USE THE WORD MANKIND AND THE U.S. SCHOOL AGREES. WRITING GUIDE AT PURDUE UNIVERSITY ACCREDITED SCHOOL APPARENTLY TELLS STUDENTS TO AVOID WORDS LIKE MAILMAN AND MANKIND IN ORDER TO HAVE NONSEXIST NON-BIASED WRITING. CATHY AREU IS FOUNDER AND PUBLISHER OF CATALINA MAGAZINE AND SHE THINK SHE AGREES. SHE JOINS US TONIGHT. CATHY, GOOD TO SEE YOU.>>HI, GOOD TO SEE YOU.>>Tucker: I HAVE GOT TO SAY LECTURING US ABOUT SEXISM WHILE YOU ARE SITTING RIGHT NOW IN MANHATTAN.>>MANHATTAN. WE NEED TO RENAME THE CITY THEN.>>Tucker: YEAH.>>THE BIG APPLE. THE BIG APPLE WOULD BE LESS OFFENSIVE. I WOULD BE SITTING IN THE APPLE NOT MANHATTAN.>>Tucker: WHY SHOULD THE POST OFFICE DELIVER MAIL.>>IT’S M-A-I-L THAT’S OKAY. IF IT’S M-A-L-E THAT’S THE PROBLEM.>>Tucker: IT’S NOT SPELLING IT’S GENDER INCLUSIVE. MALE IS OFFENSIVE. WE JUST LEARNED THAT.>>I DON’T THINK THEY ARE INCLUDING THAT BUT THEY ARE SAYING THAT SOCIETY HAS CHANGED AND TIMES ARE CHANGING AND WE DON’T WANT TO BE OFFENSIVE IN OUR LANGUAGE. AND THEY ARE TRYING AND THEY ARE TRY TG AND THEY ARE TRY TO BE NONSEXIST AND NON-BIASED AND THAT MEANS TRYING TO TAKE THE WORD MAN OUT. INSTEAD OF MAN MADE IT WOULD BE SYNTHETIC. INSTEAD OF MAILMAN IT WOULD BE MAIL CARRIER. THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO GO AROUND IT INSTEAD OF HUMANITY YOU SAY –>>MAILMAN HAS MAIL IN IT?>>M-A-I-L.>>CAN YOU CHANGE A VOWEL BUT IT SOUNDS THE SAME. HAS THAT DREADED WORD THAT SENDS PEOPLE SHRIEKING FOR SAFE SPACE MALE.>>THINK ARE SAYING MAN. MAN IS THE WORD THAT THEY ARE TRYING TO AVOID. THEY ARE SAYING THAT THE WORD MAN IS ASSOCIATED WITH ADULT MEN AS OPPOSED TO JUST HUMANITY OR HUMANS. SO, THEY ARE TRYING TO AVOID THE WORD MAN SO IF WE COULD ELIMINATE THAT WORD, THEN THINGS WOULD BE MUCH BETTER AND PEOPLE WOULD BE LESS ONGEGDED. OFFENDED.>>Tucker: WHAT IF YOU LIVED IN MANCHESTER, VERMONT.>>THEY MIGHT HAVE TO CHANGE THE NAME OF THE CITY IF PEOPLE AGREE WITH PURDUE UNIVERSITY. AND PURDUE UNIVERSITY FOUND THAT THINGS NEED TO BE UPDATED AND THEY UPDATED THEIR WRITING GUIDE TO TAKE OUT THESE WORDS THAT APPARENTLY ARE OFFENDING CERTAIN GROUPS OF PEOPLE.>>Tucker: SO, OKAY, JUST TO MAKE SURE I UNDERSTAND THE RULE. IF SOMETHING OFFENDS SOMEBODY, EVEN IF YOU HAVE NEVER MET THAT PERSON, PERSONALLY.>>RIGHT.>>Tucker: YOU HAVE TO CHANGE IT. SO DOESN’T THAT MEAN THAT A SMALL GROUP OF SUPER UNHAPPY PEOPLE GET TO CONTROL WHAT THE REST OF US SAY AND THINK?>>PERHAPS THEY ARE AHEAD OF THEIR TIME. MAYBE THIS IS SOMETHING THAT IS OFFENDING A SMALL GROUP BUT THE GROUP IS GOING TO GET LARGER AND TIMES ARE CHANGING. AND OUR LANGUAGE IS DYNAMIC. WEBSTER KEEPS ADDING NEW WORDS IN THE DICTIONARY. SO OUR LANGUAGE NEEDS TO CHANGE. AND A TERM THAT USED TO BE NON-OFFENSIVE LIKE MAN MADE AND MAILMAN NEEDS TO BE CHANGED.>>Tucker: I GET THAT I GUESS THE QUESTION FOR ME IS WHO GUESS TO DECIDE WHAT CHANGES AND WHAT DOESN’T? FOR EXAMPLE I THINK I HAVE NOW DECIDED THE MOST OFFENSIVE WORD IN THE LANGUAGE IS COLLEGE PROFESSOR. BECAUSE TO ME THAT CAN A NOTES DUMBNESS AND MISUSE OF POWER AND TENURE. RIGHT ANDED ME 00 CREDIT AT THIS SO MAYBE EDIS SO MAYBE ANIS SO MAYBE ANDS SO MAYBE AND MSO MAYBE AND MED MAYBE AND MEDIOAYBE AND MEDIOCRBE AND MEDIOCRITY.COULD I PULL THAT AND MEDIOCRITY.COULD I PULL THAO AND MEDIOCRITY.COULD I PULL THAF AND MEDIOCRITY.COULD I PULL THA?>>IF YOU HAVE A WRITING GUIDE PERHAPS AND YOU PUT THAT OUT THERE AND PEOPLE AGREE WITH YOU THEN, YEAH, MAYBE, MAYBE THAT BOO MAYBE, MAYBE THAT WOO MAYBE, MAYBE THAT WOULD FLY. THE UNIVERSITY BACKED THEM THEY HAVE A WRITING GUIDE THAT NOW IS GOING TO TEACH US HOW TO NOT OFFEND.>>Tucker: BUT DO YOU THINK THEY I HAVE THE GUTS, I MEAN, IT’S ONE THING TO BULLY THE LITTLE RICH KIDS WHO GO TO YOUR SCHOOL BECAUSE LIKE WHAT DO THEY KNOW?>>THIS IS INDIANA. THIS IS THE HEART OF AMERICA.>>Tucker: OF COURSE. IF YOU ARE PAYING LIKE 60 GRAND OR WHATEVER IT IS FOR LIKE THE FAKE DIPLOMA YOU GET, YOU KNOW, AND YOU ARE NOT WORKING, OBVIOUSLY YOU HAVE PRIVILEGE BY DEFINITION. NO MATTER WHO IS PAYING FOR IT.>>OKAY.>>Tucker: EASY TO BOSS THEM AROUND. DO YOU THINK THEY WOULD HAVE THE GUTS TO GO TO GOLDMAN SACHS IN NEW YORK AND SAY CHANGE YOUR NAME NOW OR ELSE?>>THEY PROBABLY WOULDN’T SHOP THERE. THEY PROBABLY WOULDN’T SHOP THERE.>>Tucker: WHAT IF HE WERE SHOPPING AT GOLDMAN SACHS. WILL.>>THE NAME MAN IS ADULT MALE AND WE NEED TO CHANGE IT LIKE WO-MAN HAS THE WORD MAN IN THERE. JUST CALL US A PERSON.>>Tucker: SO GOLD PERSON SAX? WOULD THAT BE BETTER.>>I THINK. SO I’M LESS OFFENDED, YES.>>Tucker: BY THE WAY, WHAT IF YOU JUST — SINCE THE RULE IS IF YOU SPELL IT AND I WILL STOP WITH THIS BECAUSE I KNOW THIS IS ANGELS ON THE HEAD OF A PENDANT. IF YOU SPELLED MAN DIFFERENTLY LIKE MAA SO IT’S LIKE MAILMAN BUT MAAN.>>PROFESSIONS MALE DOMINATED BUT THEY CHANGED. SPELLING MAILMAN DIFFERENTLY DOESN’T APPLY. PROFESSION NOW APPLIES FOR MEN AND WOMEN OR PERSONS. ALL PEOPLE. NO MAN NEEDED. IN THE WORLD WOMAN.>>CALL ME A PERSON. I WOULD BE LESS OFFENDED. NO NEED FOR WOMAN. YEAH.>>Tucker: IN THE END THE REVOLUTION OFTEN EATS

  1. See people?? It’s not me who cannot contain this hardened shell of protection over my insensitive predatory marksmanship towards insufferable cretins such as this broad here and many others like her, no it’s not my fault at all for my desire of eliminating such fools from the face of this planet, no!! It’s their backwards way of thinking and refutable confusion, blindness and absurdity spreading across this wonderful nation where I reside and am a patriot of “AMERICA” to the core, and I simply hate when much care and attention is given to these mindless freaks of nature and in rare times, such abominable creatures embody a truly beautiful corpse and on the outside resemble nature’s unmatched talents at birthing beautiful human beings, but at their core, I must say, they are about releasing a worldly plague among us “sane humans” and we must be cautious and alert giving these confused, arrogant and violent beings any more rights and credit then they already have because they will not hesitate bringing down any morally upright individuals who aren’t tainted by such foreign mental and spiritual apparitions!!

  2. What's next? Eve didn't come from Adam's rib and eve made her self not god, which gods always depicted as a man also be a target for the bible?

  3. How can we have gender inequality if gender doesn't even exist? I mean, we're meant to support and believe that woman who want to become men aren't just suffering from mental illness. But if we're also meant to hate all men and bash them all day long, shouldn't we be working under the assumption that these women really are mentally ill?

  4. Don't want to be offensive?? Try talking to these people and you get screamed at for voicing your opinion. But that's not offensive?

  5. Only men have big 🍎 so it’s sexist apples are sexists. Their having waaaayyy to much fun with this both can’t even do their own show lmao

  6. Did this woman completely lose her mind? No use of word "Man"? How weak and pathetic she can be to remove the word man to satisfy her ego?

  7. Love that the paper reads, "If you write in a sexist MANner…." Strike-out right there, feminismistical creatures from the Ignorant Lagoon.

  9. Jajajjajajajjajajajan these woMEN are quite crazy, there's something really going on with these WoMEN…….Good Lord hace Mercy of all US

  10. Man, Woman, senior, senora , Mam, mail man, girl, man, man, man, man, man! you nut freaking jokers offend me. I almost can't wait for you all to push this all the way to the finality that will result in a clash and get it over with. I think we should return to yester-years when people were sane! Real men and real women are quickly getting fed up with this nonsense!

  11. Obviously these academics in their ivory towers have WAY too much time on their hands and always on the lookout for some gimmick to get them noticed —

  12. It is better than any comedy talk show… Mango, Manchester, Mandarin, Manhattan, Manila, manager…
    Oh, how many leftists have I just offended? 🙂
    In a few years they will be ashamed of that. Sooner or later this stupid stuff will be vanished. They are trying to mangle everything.

  13. If your goal is to put the ball in the hoop, you'd find the most effective way of doing that. If you don't, you don't make the team, unless the team, in deliberately travestying basketball, scouts out buffoons.

    Likewise, if your goal is to persuade audience members to change their views, you'd find the most effective way of doing that. If you don't, you don't get hired, unless the employer, in deliberately travestying being a news organization, seeks out buffoons.

    Persuading viewers who disagree with the views expressed by Tucker Carlson doesn't seem to be on Fox's agenda. If it was, you'd see more effective methods of persuasion being employed. So why do we see what we, in fact, see coming from Fox? I would argue it's because Fox knows that very few, if any, of its viewers disagree with his views. So why the pillorying of the left when there's nobody around who needs convincing of its iniquities? I would argue its because doing so- making fun of them, schoolyard style- reinforces Fox viewers' convictions. Why do such fallacious appeals reinforce Fox viewers' convictions? Because they were based on fallacy, shoddy evidence, and slipshod reasoning from the beginning. Why? Because conservative principles don't survive much of the scrutiny of science and evidence. Why? Because they're based in traditions which our growing understanding of the nature of reality is constantly revealing faults with.

  14. This explains why lefties(Democrats), never even try to solve the myriad of real problems our country face because they're too busy creating problems to try to elevate their self importance!

  15. This women holds these views, but mind you, shes paid to be on here. Gavin mcinnes goes into how this show has to pay these lunatics to come on here and spout their horseshit.

  16. As a woMAN and feminist I can agree with her. I love the feeling of telling he world how MENtal I am. (this is a joke ok I’m a MAN)

  17. Good thing, I avoid television . . . . all these People being introduce on live television to discuss these so called "Important matters" are too ridiculous. Also, she has a sick ideal for a women that avoid use of words 'man'.

  18. One flew over the cuckoo's nest. I hear electro shock therapy is still a thing for the seriously deranged. That explains a lot.

  19. She says: times are changing….
    No. Some mental individuals (a very few with a lot of media echo) keep repeating that times are changing.

  20. she is gonna forever be that late night last resort boody call, and then wake up the next morning with a renewed sense of "MAN" hate !

  21. West civilization is getting out of control with these woman in think Men should have been more serious about letting equality happen.

  22. Even if this was a good idea. Why is the focus only on the word “man” and “male” and not “women” or “female?”

  23. Whoever would have thought that in 2019 the word "man" would trigger people. Things have gotten so crazy that I don't even know what to say; literally.

  24. a lot of last names end in son. like wilson. that is totally offensive to my idiot brain, change it now! words too like person. jefferson, name needs changing. martin luther king, male pronoun change it. i just dont see why it even matters, arent there much better issues to address. dress that is a female pronoun it needs to go. i think/hope the intelligent kids of these type of idiots will be like: huh? what the f is going on? are you insane?

  25. This is the absolute, most ridiculous thing I’ve heard of. The left continues to deteriorate further and further. I’m not changing my vocabulary because of how you feel. I. Do. Not. Care.
