‘Man Up,’ ‘Don’t Be A Pussy’ Labeled Offensive Language at Duke University

A new word-discouragement campaign at Duke University has labeled phrases such as “Man Up,” “That’s So Gay,” and “Don’t Be a Pussy” offensive language that “delegitimizes” homosexuality and oppresses and insults people.

But as the campaign has gained national popularity, its detractors have bristled at the effort, calling it a politically correct war on words that will stifle free speech and suggesting its true aim is to redefine terms to control public opinion and – ultimately – public policy.

In fact, the “You Don’t Say” campaign creators have admitted as much.

“Language is a reflection of how we think about others and view the world,” Jay Sullivan, a student leader of the campaign, tells Duke Today. “My goal is to…. help facilitate discussion about how language affects many social issues, from race to gender and sexuality.”

The campaign consists of a series of black-and-white memes with students posing behind large pledges to avoid so-called offensive language.

“I don’t say ‘No Homo’ because it delegitimizes love and sexual identities,” says one.YouDontSayInside

“I don’t say ‘Man Up’ because the strongest people I know have cried in front of me, regardless of their age, gender or sex,” says another.

“I don’t say ‘Tranny’ because it’s insulting to transgender and genderqueer communities,” adds a third meme.

Other banned words include “bitch,” because it “insists feminism is inherently negative,” “‘fag,’ because it only serves to hurt and oppress homosexual men,” and “pussy,” as it “implies that having a certain feature is indicative of being a coward.”

The recently launched campaign has spread far and wide on social media and gained national attention in a variety of news reports. The effort is similar to the recent “Ban Bossy” campaign, and akin to other university student efforts that have banned the term “illegal immigrant” on campuses.

The campaign is a collaborative effort between a newly formed group at Duke University called Think Before You Talk and Blue Devils United, a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer student advocacy group.

The campaign has gained plenty of supporters, as well as detractors, whose reactions range from sarcastic to disgusted.

“I can’t say anything about an individual person, because it might be construed as offensive to a larger group… even if I had no intention of offending a larger group,” asks one Facebook post.

Others balk at the idea of being told how to choose their daily language.

“As a thinking individual, I don’t and didn’t need some children from Duke University admonishing me for ‘thinking any gender is inferior,’” says another. “Do you see what they did there? ‘Any gender.’ Not ‘either gender.’ It’s all about redefining terms, redefining life.”

Some commenters on Facebook hardly took the campaign seriously at all: “There is nothing wrong with being a HOMO. We’re all homos… homosapiens.”

In an interview with The College Fix, Dr. Mark Hendrickson, economics professor at Grove City College, expressed concern for the direction and potential implications of the campaign, such as the idea of a possible enforcement mechanism.

He also questioned the discouragement of statements such as “man up.”

“I’m a little concerned about censoring a phrase like ‘man up’… a world without manliness, like a world without femininity… would be a pretty dismal place,” Hendrickson said.

Hendrickson acknowledged the need for consideration of others when choosing one’s language, but he observed that proponents of the campaign appear to have a narrow agenda.

He noted, especially with the impending graduation season, that similar tolerance is often not afforded to conservative campus speakers.

“With anybody advocating the banning of a certain word or phrase… would they be willing to publicly say, ‘I promise in return to never hinder a speech by a political figure with whose political philosophy I disagree?” Hendrickson said.

    But they do encourage disparaging Tea Party members (teabaggers)…:)

    • Tanker74

      Actual tea baggers are behind this policy at Duke.

      • GT Buzz

        Wrong. I’m a TP and I think this is stupid, blame game lib, quit it

        • DF

          Think before you write.

            You could copy and paste your reply on every story.

          • GT Buzz

            I did, maybe you should try it lib

          • tb != tp

            GT Buzz I think you missed the point. A “Tea bagger” is a reference to a person that performs a specific homosexual act … not related to a tea partier.

            The Libs get a pass for using that term though.

          • GT Buzz

            Your right, my bad, good one

          • disqus_v3SHzvCspj

            I prefer ‘EBTBagger’ when describing certain parasites.

          • jaydeebee

            I like that one.

          • Maria Sanchez

            Remember when your mom or grandma told you “sticks and stones can break your bones but words can never hurt you”? She was telling you to man up and grow a thick skin because you’d need it out here in the real world. Duke and those behind this are admitting that gay people are too weak to be able to handle the world- that gay people must be handled with kid gloves lest their sensitive ears hear this word or that and their pathetically weak sel-images crumble as a result. These people will never survive the real world unless and until they man up and learn that words can only harm you if you allow them to.

          • Come On Now

            They will never survive the real world because they can’t reproduce. Thank god.

            Like Anderson Cooper, I presume?

        • mredward

          I believe Tanker was referring to “real” teabaggers.

        • David R

          Would it help if he put it in caps? ACTUAL “tea-baggers” are behind this policy …

          NOT members of the TEA Party movement, but those creature from the LGBT community that perform this (sexual) act. When “Progressives” use that slur to describe TEA Party members/sympathizers, they are projecting.

      • felicityva

        Wrong.

        YA MEAN DOUCHE BAGGERS……………..

        liberals run duke
        Since when did they let anything tea party go unchallenged, not ridiculed and accept it?

    • SmartDoctor

      Well, everyone has to have SOMEBODY to hate! Liberals included

    • David R

      I’m curious – is the 1st Amendment to your constitution not enforced at Duke University? Did I miss it being repealed (as was the 18th Amendment), or has the State of North Carolina seceded a second time, and the US Constitution is no longer in force there?

      It’s difficult to follow everything going on these days, it seems the US is in a state of Anarchy! 🙁

  • Wardak08

    The fags at Duke (the admin folks) are such pu$$ies & are in dire need of having their butts kicked.

    • chris1776

      Or, to say it another way, the pussy admins at Duke need to man up, stop being fags, and they need to stop being bitches to a bossy pressure group and state that words don’t hurt people regardless of the “micro aggression” PC BS that is being peddled. 😉

      • indyogb

        I see we’re of like mind on this “issue”. These fairies need to stop working on this bullsh!t and get back in their tent line for basketball tickets. 😀

        • vperl

          Yep, the Guest coward, seemed bossy to me, and a tad bitchy and then unable to man up, grow a pair and worry about actual problems, not petty made up complaints

      Don’t bother kicking their butts; they’d probably enjoy it. Just ignore them. Don’t send your kids to Duke, don’t hire anyone from Duke, make Duke and all the other schools like them irrelevant and bankrupt.

      • c_reasoner

        Duke U is cornering the market on the New Totalitarians. They only want total control of what you think and speak.

        Beta males all, they can only win when they define the rules of the game. But we all contribute to the rules of the game!

        If they really wanted to win in the reality of our culture, not their fluffy nanny-nest in liberal academia, then they need to man up and grow a pair, and stop identifying with the tiny sliver of a minority (less than 4%) queers and bitches trying to boss everyone around.

        Instead, they should celebrate those who do real work, who build things and save lives, and promote the true diversity of Achievers.*

        Stand strong folks. They only win if you fail to mock them!

        *NOTE: In society, the dark side makes the Light side that much more valuable.

      RE “Butts”. Does this blog recognize the British term “arses” as censorable? Gives a multicultural, albeit a racist white/Caucasian tone to your otherwise properly offensive usage.

      Our sons that graduate from Duke will either come back as a:
      tran,
      gay, or
      wussie-fied man.

      Unable to speak up and will sit in the corner in any important meeting, wondering if he should have changed his name to Chelsea.

    • nn55nn

      Women that graduate from Duke will either come back as a:
      gay,
      or a masculine woman.

      Completely dominating any and all men in the meeting room,
      wondering if she should have been a middle school teacher and have flings with 14 yr old boys that will never be men.

      • Jean Poole

        ‘or a masculine woman.’

        With a mustache and comfortable shoes.

          more men become trans than women I believe;
          Women from Duke wont have a mustache, they will wear pant suits.

        In which case, there would have been NO men in the meeting room.

    • Brian McClellan

      Dont say butt…because you offend the people at Duke who are the “butt” of every joke here in the comments

      • DaBoiIsAPussy

        Duke grads say butt is a pleasure source and sexually gratifying

    • Whimsicalrogue

      This is not being run by the admin. It is an independent campaign that does not have the power, or seek the power, to enforce compliance. It is just saying “please do not use these words.” That is all.

      • Wardak08

        good to know

      • Joe

        No, that’s not all. Leftists always seek to minimize the damage to society that they end up inflicting, saying that they “merely want… a b and c…” but the devil is in the details.

        If you give a Progressive / Liberal / Communist faculty the idea of banning words or concepts, they will wholeheartedly join in and terrorize Normal / Christian students, threatening them with sanctions up to and including expulsion.

        Best to nip this little bit of tyranny in the bud.

    • Hal Briggs

      well said.

  • chris1776

    Language totalitarians are as bad as any other totalitarians. They want to control people to increase their own power.

      Just further proof of why this country is so F’d up. They’ve all lost their minds.

        You can’t say F’d Up! anymore, because it would offend all the AH’s at Duke.

        • listen

          Gay means happy, not disgusting homosexual behaviour.
          This Orwellian campaign should have begun when the word Gay was first hijacked by govt think tanks pushing the homosexual agenda.
          The homosexual agenda has also made dirty the rainbow. Instead of thinking about the rainbow as Gods promise, now it means anal sex and fecal matter.
          This nonstop discussion of homosexual behaviour on every TV channel, news story, and talk show is actually sexual abuse upon the large majority of men who are not involved in having sex with another mans anus.
          A sex talk show host in San Francisco from their dept of health said it best, a vagina has 23 layers of skin and was designed for having sex, but an anus has only one layer of skin and can rip like wet tissue paper introducing inner and outer microbes into the one playing the part of the female.

          • Homer

            True, we don’t want to hear about it, they need to keep it to themselves. Its too disgusting as is.

            When Magic Johnson, who was having sex with 300-500 “people” a year, got HIV, much to the consternation of his pregnant wife, then-president Bush called him a “hero.”
            Fast forward to now president Obama calling an NBA player to congratulate him on being a homosexual. Read The Goals of Communism. It’s all by design.

            That’s a proposition too ridiculous to entertain.

            Anyhow, your typewritten expression comes across kinda like our example Swish.

            Your rainbow is safe- its “Santorum” that means anal sex and fecal matter, not “rainbow”… 😛

            And for the Dukesters- Pussy is not shorthand for vagina, its short for pusillanimous (Showing ignoble cowardice, or contemptible timidity). Sheesh.

            Man up refers to character (strength, courage and righteousness, basically)- it has nothing to do with crying, or sex or sexuality.

            It would be nice to think people in university would know more, really. 🙁

          • Joe

            That’s pretty F’ed up… insulting a man who does NOT engage in your deviant behavior with the real byprodouct of what it is that YOU DO engage in.

            What kind of a self-hating psycho-pathology is it that you freaks suffer from when you insult others by calling them one of your own, or accusing them of doing what you do?

          • sjsp

            You seem heavily concerned with anuses; you’re aware that:

            1) About half of all sexually active male same-sex couples don’t have anal sex?
            2) Plenty of heterosexual couples (no actual stats here, sorry) *do* have anal sex?

            I’m concerned that you’ve drawn an equivalence between a sexual act and an entire sexuality.

          • Joe

            Nice try at equivalency, but the truth is completely different.

            First off, homosexuals make up perhaps 2 percent of the population and yet account for about 66 PERCENT of all new HIV infections, 75 PERCENT of all new Syphilis infections, and about 80 PERCENT of all new male HIV infections, translating into HIV infection rates 44 TIMES, and AIDS infection rates 50 TIMES that of Normals.

            Whatever homosexuals are doing, they are doing it very, very differently.

            Normals and Deviants are NOT the same.

          • sjsp

            None of what you posted contradicts my point.

          • Joe

            Really now?

            You were trying to make the point that both Normals and Deviants engage in butsechs, with the underlying assumption that there is no difference between the two.

            The facts proved that completely unfounded, since the stats reveal that whatever the homosexuals do when they use the Stink, they are doing it VERY differently and as a result are contracting diseases at rates on orders of magnitude over Normals.

            These diseases are closely associated with homosexuals and unprotected butsechs.

            When you are 2 percent of the population (or even 3 percent) and yet you are responsible for 75 percent of all new Syphilis infections and about 80 percent of all new HIV infections in males…

            You are doing it wrong.

          • tom1987

            kill yourself.

          • Joe

          • Joe

            Actually homosexuals and even Les-be-frens, suffer from a curtailed lifespan. For male hoe moes, by about 20 years.

            For the carpet munchers, it’s from just generally being nasty (in the form of BV, obesity, drug and alcohol abuse and other high-risk behaviors).

            So, as one generation shuffles off this mortal coil, you Freaks will have preceded us by a good decade or so. BTW – Deviants cannot procreate.

            ^^Your problem is you, not the gays. Man up, Fag.

        • But Obama was quick to have the words “teaba**ing” and “f*sting” introduced into this country’s national lexicon… Why? Because he’s trying to “legitimize” homosexuality and his moral compass points to Hell.

          Remember that Obama’s spiritual mentor for 20+ years was Down Low Club’s Jeremiah Wright. And Obama’s golfing “buddy” is an original Punahou School chum/choom gang-banger once busted for soliciting a male prostitute.

          Then there was the militant homofascist activist Obama tapped as his “Safe Schools” Czar. Despite public outrage, Obama was able to keep Kevin Jennings on the job and in the administration’s closet working for two+ years.

          Then there is the architect of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse cover-up, former Penn State president Graham Spanier. What happened after he was forced to step down? The Obama administration hired him! Washington Post’s Emily Heil wrote about it in the article, ‘Graham Spanier’s gig as a federal worker is a mystery’.

          All in all when put together a disgusting body of evidence that shows Obama was ahead of the curve in trying to “legitimize” homosexuality.

            This is true but you never know what the censors are going to key on so if you want your comment published you have to as8ume they will kick on something inane.

          • I erred on the side of caution. I have an open mind regarding the use of words. I recognize that where they burn books, they eventually burn people, but I digress. I just think it’s safe to say many Americans who weren’t familiar with that word until Obama picked Jennings as “Safe Schools” Czar.

            As far as what the word means, i.e., the act of putting one’s balled up hand into another person’s body cavity for sexual pleasure, that sounds gross, but to each his or her cup of tea.

            PS- You wouldn’t happen to work for the TSA?

          • Joe

            Do you realize what those books were?

            Many high-ranking members of the NSDAP party had been patients at clinics which had been treating them for the mental disease of homosexuality. The SA, or Brownshirts, were dispatched to seize and burn those incriminating records, as the rest of Germany was not so open-minded about males playing bury the banana in anothers’ hindquarters.

        Lost their minds?? maybe… Lost their knowledge of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights… absolutely… but in their defense, that is the mindset of their political beliefs of communism that we have allowed them to foster.
        The best thing anyone can do is teach their children about the evils of communism and how to identify them.

        • Hence, the opposite is true: “The WORST thing anyone can do is teach their children about the GOODNESS of communism,” which Frank Marshall Davis, the hard-core Communist who was Obama’s mentor (and more), did!

        • Varia Vespasa

          The idea of communism isnt evil, per se. Its just not practical, and like anything else that people dont understand is not practical, attempting to implement it anyway is what leads to evils.

          • Joe

            Oh? The violent overthrow of the Bourgeoisie? Seizing of all means of production?

            Violence, mass theft and class warfare and murder are in communisms DNA.

            You are a complete and utter fool, or you are a liar, thinking everyone else is a complete and utter fool.

            MILLIONS of innocent people have been slaughtered under the red banner.

          • Varia Vespasa

            Actually I think you’re not too good at reading- The stuff you describe clearly falls under the “attempting to implement it anyway is what leads to evils” part of my post. Its half of one sentence for christs sake, and you STILL couldnt grok it. Pull your head out of your ass- the view is better.

            Violent overthrow is bad? You dont say, you genius you! But violent overthrow is neither unique to communism nor a prerequisite for communism. In theory its perfectly possible to have a communist society without violently overthrowing anything. It hasnt been done yet as far as I know, in part because enough people can see the flaws in large-scale communism to know its not practical and thus wont go along with it voluntarily (nor should they.), but it IS theoretically possible.

            And other government forms have indulged in violent overthrows too, its not a uniquely communist thing- Kings have, as the eastern american natives, various central and south american tribes/nations, and any number of Indian satrapies and Maharaja’s can attest. Democracies have too, as I’m sure the Shah of Iran, the western american native tribes, Hawaii and Mexico can attest, and thats just the US. Thats several million killed under the ol’ stars and stripes. Not as bad as russia or china of course, but proof enough that bad behaviour is not the exclusive preserve of any particular government model. (The Bureau of Indian Affairs apologised for their part in the ethnic cleansing of the western tribes on sept 8, 2000, for whatever thats worth to the dead.)

            Again, for the hard of thinking- I’m saying that communism is fine in theory, but is fatally flawed in practice because it requires people to behave in ways that people just dont. So either people not behaving as communism requires in order for it to work will destroy it, or the supression required to try to make them behave as communism requires will destroy it or destroy all the gains a working communist society might enjoy and far more besides, making it a losing proposition. In practice communism only works on a small scale where everyone is on the same page, mentally and spiritually, and those examples are limited to a few hundred people each. Mostly communism does not and cannot work. Its just a warm fuzzy intellectual daydream, and then you wake up and get on with something practical.

    • John D

      Because they are inferior.

    • SmartDoctor

      Liberals have no choice but to stereotype groups/mob/masses. And they actually feel good about themselves for doing so. Hence the universal fear that all gay men live in fear, or that all black students are inherently inferior and will permanently require affirmative action in the school systems. It’s sad, but I see no other possible explanation. As a conservative, I still believe in the individual. He may be dumb, he may be smart, he may be a saint, or a Trayvon. But he is himself, to be judged by me on his own merits, or lack thereof.

      • algonquinmatt

        “..It has no relevance to modern politics”

        i disagree. well, maybe not to ‘modern politics’ but to people in general, my experience is that many people grow up and become more conservative as they see how the world really operates. A little less idealistic and a little more realistic.

      College is a joke on the PARENTS, and only if they allow the kids to make their education a travesty. I’ve got 2 boys who went to a local State school, majored in Architecture and Electrical Engineering, both graduated on time, on scholarship, no drugs, minimal beer, complaining that they never got to go to parties. They took their share of Liberal Arts, which I insisted on to round out a great education. And guess what? Both are employed within an Obama-economy, in their fields of interest, making decent money. And only one is still living at home, because we don’t want him drowning in his wife’s student debt (she’s a cardio nurse.) When the debt becomes manageble, he can move out with our blessings. It can be done, but it helps to be a red neck, racist Southerner who values a proper education, to do so. (Or possibly a Texan…)

      Using language that others consider offensive is an important component of “being a man?”

      • Foolish Pride

        Absolutely. A man has to have a backbone. Every day someone decides another word is offensive and shouldn’t be said. Should a man lay down and accept that?

        • Jesse Fortner

          Neither a man nor a woman should lay down and accept control.

          But if a behavior is rude, hurtful, or destructive, then there’s no virtue in continuing that behavior. You might not agree that certain phrases are offensive, but refusing to consider the consequences of your words is hardy a desirable trait.

        • kruddler

          Whatever happened to ‘sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me’?

            Fun fact: you can believe it’s better to be careful with your words AND be thick-skinned at the same time. Crazy, huh?
            My point is that the people here seem to think that “being a man” obligates them to completely disregard other people’s feelings at all time. That’s not being a man, that’s being an asshole.

          • Eat One

            True, but these kids come off as neither strong nor silent. Whereas many of the people on this thread took it to one extreme, the idiots at Duke took it to the opposite extreme. Fun fact. Moderation used to exist.

        Yes. Dear Leader has it laid out as a door mat so his Marxist cronies can wipe their feet on it when they come to take him out to play yet another round of golf.

      • Maria Sanchez

        Yes but we’re all too gay to demand that our leaders obey it.

      • SmartDoctor

        We do, but what difference does it make now?

    As has been said in the past, “A rose by any other name is still a rose.”. Slang terms have changed for the same issue all the time. Trace the history of words used to describe a person with disabilities or developmental issues. Often what is used today as an accepted description becomes a pejorative as time passes. I prefer to live by the old “Sticks and stones…” ditty and not be too sensitive or PC.

    I’m a straight up, unapologetic left-winger. I don’t use most of those phrases myself, and most of them are admittedly stupid or obnoxious. However, I am 100% opposed to any unversity policy–or policy ANYWHERE–that seeks to legislate language/specific phrases or expressions. Don’t be an asshole? That I can support. We have rules that protect people from asshole-dom. But forbidding X,Y, and Z terms? Never.

    • Me

      We have choices regarding what we take in and process between our ears. If I take away your right to tell me to “F” off, I risk having something taken away by the same evil controlling government, all in the name of tyranny.

    • funkybro

      Odd that you could have that much common sense and still be a left winger.

  • kilroy5440

    Interesting that the left, who believes that a woman has a right to terminate the life of the baby she’s carrying, believes that same woman shouldn’t say “man up”. It’s such a twisted ideology, governed not by logic, but by sheer emotion. More and more we’re seeing this push from the left to control the language. It all started with the nonsensical idea of hate crimes and hate speech. In due time, if the progressives are allowed to plod on with this movement, and since there seems to be no pushback in the political realm from the party supposedly representing conservative values, there will be legislation outlawing certain types of speech. Specific words will be banned but the legislation will be so broad, that just about anything one might say could be construed as illegal. Universities used to be the bastion of free debate where controversial issues and speech were encouraged. Now they’re run by fascists who believe they are the arbiters of fairness and goodness and leftists who aren’t interested in debate (the issues are settled, like climate change). Some of these young fascists will end up in the halls of state and federal congresses and they’ll bring their fascist ideas with them with the mission to codify them into laws. Imagine spending all that money to send your kid to Duke only to have him/her return as a radical leftist who bridles at the utterance of words common to their native vernacular. God help us and I mean that.

    Those rules are so gay, people need to man up and quit being such pussies about simple words.

  • Robert Chapman

    Gee, for the amount of tuition at Duke, I would hope the administrators would concentrate more on giving their students value for money instead of worrying about what they are saying. Don’t these knotheads understand anything? Who really gives a darn as to what students say. Enough silliness already!

    • Me

      Orgies, drugs and alcohol are probably not off the table.

    George Orwell described this tactic of trying to constrain thought by constraining language quite clearly in “1984”. So ironic that institutions of learning should be in the forefront of Orwellian actions.

    Who ever came up with this is a bitch and needs to man up because this totalitarianism bullshit is so fu$%ing gay only a pussy would come up with it and express some authority over what is right or wrong to say. Not to mention unconstitutional.

    All dreamed up by the academic filth on the left, most of whom were indoctrinated at our marxist schools, colleges and universities. We are now living in a post-constitutional era where, although polling shows America is still a “center-right” society, the government, aided by academia and the fawning slavish press, have pushed this once-great country to a point where we are now supposed to conform to examples such as the famed “pajama boy”. The “pussification” (there! I said it!) of America is something we all should be very aware and afraid of. If I had a child at this “Duke Indoctrination Center” I would be pulling him/her out of it immediately.

  • Michael Sullivan

    Every word that is used to describe you eventually becomes offensive if you are insecure in your own person. Remember when mentally retarded was an acceptible term to describe someone? Then it was mentally disabled or mentally challenged? Again, no longer acceptible. I’m sorry, but mental disabilities are what they are. Theres no way to sugar coat it. Man up and embrace who you are.

  • phil

  • eagle33

    Does Duke issue each new Freshman a politically correct dictionary? Is the punishment for using other words spelled out?

  • JTDeth

    Duke in the left living out the vision of the Party in Orwell’s “1984”

    Orwell explains that the Party could not protect its iron power without degrading its people with constant propaganda. Yet knowledge of this brutal deception, even within the Inner Party itself, could lead to the implosion of the State. Although Nineteen Eighty-Four is most famous for the Party’s pervasive surveillance of everyday life, this control means that the population of Oceania – all of it and including the ruling elite – could be controlled and manipulated merely through the alteration of everyday thought and language.Newspeak is the method for controlling thought through language; doublethink is the method of directly controlling thought.

    Duke and the leftists are deeply implicated in this criminal activity of creating a politically correct Newspeak.

  • Thatso Ghey

  • JTDeth

    Perhaps the best retribution against these fascists attempting to impose an Orwellian Newspeak on us is the fact that they are paying a fortune to go to a university to then cripple their own ability to think by constraining their language to preclude being able to think objectively on any topic touched by political correctness. Fools.

  • taconite

    First newspeak. Then thought crimes. 1984 was supposed to be a cautionary tale not a blueprint.

    • JTDeth

      Ultimately the left is no different now that it was in Stalin’s Russia or in the era that prompted Orwell to write 1984. They are all about control and have a complete willingness to cripple their own ability to think as part of crippling everyones ability to think by mis-shaping language to preclude full objective consideration of reality.

    Language totalitarians want to think that everything is sexism, racism, or some other -ism that they just make up. Bitches are mean and annoying; that’s why they’re bitches. Pussies are cowards; that’s why they’re pussies. And men should man up because “we don’t believe any gender is inferior.” Duke college administrators should stop being pussy bitches and man up.

  • Templar8

    Authoritarians always strive to control the messaging and to implement their form of indoctrination. It is clear as to what this is: Control the message through language. Ban words, ban ideas. Institutions such as Duke are just continuing the indoctrination of the K-12 schools. They are relentless in their efforts. I don’t believe they can be stopped. It just might be too late.

  • Tang

    After reading this article all I can say is “That’s so GAY!”

  • RLABruce

    You have the freedom to be offended in the US. For instance, I have to hear about schools, the bastions of intellectual freedom and diversity of ideas, that are preventing the Constitutionally guaranteed exercise of free speech; that offends ME! If students’ parents will pull the money from these fascist indoctrination centers, this problem will be solved. The bloom is off the collegiate rose anyway; they no longer prepare students to have careers, but just to be politically correct.

  • Lane Cobble

    Don’t send your son to college. He can learn everything he needs to know, as well as much more accurate versions of history, from the internet and resources available there and at nearby libraries, etc. If he needs an advanced degree or wishes to specialize in some area of knowledge, great, but he’s already ahead of his peers by having actually learned something.

    Do no send your daughter to college. 95% of the become whores or get raped or become cell phone whores who lack basic skills in face-to-face, human communication and bonding. They learn so little as to be laughable, only come out feeling more pressure to “have it all” (a disastrous and unrealistic life-plan), more delusional about how much ‘time’ they have to start that family and find the “one”, and end up less emotionally and intellectually stable. And if you think “that would never be my daughter”… ha. HA. HA.

    And you pay your hard earned money for the “college experience”. The “college experience” has been ruining young peoples’ lives since the 60s. See: Baby Boomers. Holy crap that generation got screwed up big time. They’re the ones at the helm of this nation now, God save us.

    “1984” has arrived 30 years late at Duke University. By virtue of this campaign, Duke has proclaimed itself to no longer be a “university,” i.e., “the whole.”

    Duke’s Ministry of Truth, forgetting the trumped up 2006 Duke lacrosse team rape scandal, has declared war on thoughtcrimes in Durham.

    For its full-blown assault on the First Amendment, Duke should be renamed The Duke Gulag. It should also be denied federal funding for its crimes against the US Constitution.

    Fagdom needs to be put back into the closet. We tried “tolerance”. They do not want tolerance. Evil never wants mere tolerance. It wants control, power, domination, and worship. Homosexuals, who self-identify with their sin and perversion, will never relent and merely be thankful they live in a civilization where, relative to others around the world, can live at peace. No, they do not merely want tolerance, they want acceptance, they want celebration, they want adoration, they want power and domination, they want special status. They cannot control these desires because they cannot even control their fleshy desires and even revel in the perversions they engage in.

    The Great Gay Experiment has been tried in the West. It failed. They overplayed their hand. As was predicted by many, many men and women decades ago who knew better. They predicted this.

    And homosexuals and their hetero supporter are so unbelievably full of pride and delusional self-righteousness that they do not care if they destroy all our rights, if the lay waste to our nation and all its principles in the process of unapologetically establishing their own vision of utopia, their own dictatorial reign of Gay. Cloaked in “liberation” of course.

    It’s over, go back into the closet. We tried, you overplayed your hand. Your true nature is our for all to see. The pendulum is swinging back already, and it will swing back harder than these people expect.

    So, how will we describe the REAL Duke rape case that the media ignored?

    Gay Duke University Official Arrested
    ” it seems that Duke University is embroiled in another rape case, but this time it’s not the students that are in the spotlight.

    Frank McCorkle Lombard, the associate director of Duke’s Center for Health Policy was arrested Wednesday, June 24 after an Internet sting found Lombard offering up his adopted 5-year-old son for sex.

    Lombard said in an online chat that he had sexually molested the boy.The court papers say he also invited an undercover detective to North Carolina to have sex with the young boy and even suggested which hotel he should use.

    The Plot Thickens

    As it turns out Lombard is gay living with his homosexual partner. The state crippled by PC tunnel vision permitted them to adopt 2 children.”

    Didn’t hear about it? It went against the Gay agenda and was hushed up.

    what a bunch of twits. when used in the context “don’t be a pussy” – the word is a kitty cat – a meek and scared little thing – has nothing to do with gender. just because it became slang for something else doesnt change that.

  • dagwud

    It’s a shame that colleges feel* that they have to have “campaigns” to “teach” children what their parents didn’t. I don’t use “homo,” “pu$$y” or “b!tch,” because my parents taught me that it was impolite, and that I wasn’t to treat other people disrespectfully.

    Of course, they also taught me to say “ma’am” and “sir,” which shows just how out-of-touch they were. Too bad our kids are getting the same lessons at home. Of course, they’ve got two parents at home who are both teaching the same thing.

    I don’t use “man up” because it makes no sense. And I had to stop using “gay” as an adjective because I don’t know what it means anymore.

    I don’t think the words are “banned.” They’re discouraged, because people don’t like them anymore. People can still say those words if they wish; the campaign is designed to make them socially unacceptable. Social pressure is entirely appropriate. That isn’t a restriction of “free speech;” it’s just words becoming unfashionable.

    • getthelibsout

      man up, pu$$y!

    • We don’t say “free speech” because…

      • del2124

        Because freedom of speech isn’t under attack here. This is about people finding the terms offensive. But we’re free to use offensive speech as we’d like. I can say “nigg-r” and “kik-” if I want, the government’s not going to stop me, I’d just have a hard time getting anyone to publish it.

        • Thanks for explaining something that required no explanation. I’m sure we all realize that you (and Duke University) are attempting to restrict freedom of speech by means short of legal action, like allowing someone to publish but then burning his books.

    • Joe

      You’re so Gay.

    • James Madison

      Unfashionable is subjective. You might say a word is ‘unfashionable’, but I may disagree. So because you’re a left wing/progressive/liberal/socialist your opinion trumps mine? What is appropriate is the 1st Amendment.

      • del2124

        Certainly not. What “trumps” is how many people go along with it. That’s what “fashionable” means, the popularity of the term.

    • mredward

      How very liberal of you. To quote the Bee Gees, “It’s only words”. Today they are discouraged, tommorrow?

      • del2124

        Tomorrow we probably stop using them. Like the way we don’t say Asians are “Oriental” anyone.

  • 1984 – Orwell predicted our future.

    tuition at a top college runs anywhere from 40-60K per year. what a colossal waste of money. these children–and they are children–are nothing more than pinhead totalitarians

  • Joe Engineer

    Next they will try to ban “free speech” or “free country”
    Hell – Toyota say “tranny” in a commercial for their trucks. Do we need to ban that. Some may find that offensive. actually I find all Toyota and Honda commercials offensive. Proof that they have to dumb things down for the “dweebs” that buy that generic garbage, but I digress.
    Love how our neo-fascist Universities live in a bubble. Hope these Hipster Doofus’ (Professor’s) are around the comfort the graduating classes when they try to get jobs in the real world. Wait – they more than likely will not get jobs, so they will be our next wave of food stamp and Obama Care recipients.

      I think that’s part of a private society on campus.

  • Nick L. Gale

    I think the 1st Amendment trumps a school policy.

    • James Madison

      Exactly…. which is why the article never mentions consequences for uttering these phrases. You start kicking students out of Duke and the lawsuits will start flooding in. Like typical progressives, they never seem to look down the road and what trouble they could get themselves in.

    They forgot to ban mangina.

    Words are only offensive if you believe them to be true, then it’s a moot point because you are aware and live it. Why should I be responsible for acknowledging that which you are aware of?

    However, if you did not feel that way about yourself and have something offensive said about you, there is a choice and it’s yours. Drum roll please:

    Either you decide that you do not value the opinion of the person delivering the message and go on feeling NO impact, OR give your power and happiness to the person speaking those words, take it in, and call racism, sexism, blah, blah, blah… extract your pound of flesh and continue to live in a world where you have no control
    of thought process. Welcome to the Nanny State where you have consciously made
    a decision to NOT BE HAPPY unless the government tells you so.

  • Walter Bellhaven

    I guess the curriculum at Duke isn’t as tough as I had imagined … since students have the time to police other’s words.

  • G S

    Well, let’s see how can I put it…Duke needs to man up, they are acting pretty gay!

  • woodyl1011fl

    Duke is only being true to it’s character it is a Marxist socialist, anti-Christian, Anti-Israel, religious indoctrination institution of Humanist Darwinism “higher learning” which is of course totalitarian thinking masquerading as enlightenment by modern secularist atheistic philosophy. By the way it is a private institution so it can be as Fourth Reich totalitarian in thinking and action as it desires. All of American academia is controlled by this worldview.

    • Younis Mourabi

      Humanist Darwinism, does that explain the weekly Thunderdome-esque bodycounts in places like Chi-Congo? I bet there were week-ends in the Roman Collosseum when fewer were murdered.

      • woodyl1011fl

        Your probably on to something there. The Romans spread their circus amusements out. Do you suppose that as decandent. depraved and wicked as Roman society and culture were, that they burned babies for heat like America now does? Wonder when the book burning will begin because some books are not politically correct “Third Reich” our military has already burned Bibles. Ninety years ago the educational elites in Germany paved the way for the rise of one of the most evil governments ever to arise in the modern era and didn’t even know it. The other was Lenin/Stalins USSR. Is our nation beyond repair with a Demoncrat party it’s allies in academia and its leader determined to destroy a once free nation. Rome destroyed itself are we?

    this is so so so gay and faggy !!!

    Don’t say “Duke College Administrator”. It’s so Sharpton!

  • legaliis

    I mean really it’s just so gay of Duke not to man up to the reality of life. It’s so like they’re being a pussy is trying to make students say what they want them to say. Balderdash! and to think, this from a school where they’re latest claim to fame is a bogus rape scandal with one of they’re school teams. Me this they have more pressing problems then p.c. language.

    Universities are the breeding ground (literall) for the political correctness that is ruining this country. These are the same bedwetters who’ve grown up in the era of participation trophies just for showing up. They will have such a wake-up call once they’re done spending their parents money and have to get a job and face the real world. It’s no wonder so many of them are on anti-depressants & other drugs.

    Here’s a hint, words CAN NOT HURT YOU UNLESS YOU CHOOSE TO LET THEM!!!!! “Man-up” means exactly that!

    Like Beijing and Tehran, the “University” campus of the fascist-left is exceedingly

    Dumbasses. “Don’t be a pussy” is not a gender based phrase. The word “pussy” is shortened from “pusillanimous” and converted to slang.
    And yes, I used the word “dumbasses” because I wanted to insult them, delegitimize their ignorance, and humiliate them. They should ban the word “dumbasses.”
    I think Duke should ban everything it doesn’t understand.

    • sleepingtolive

      Your assumption is that is how people use it today. Most people using it today have no idea the origin and are using the phrase to mean “don’t be a girl”. So yes it is being used currently as a gender based phrase.

  • Hearin in da Boro of NYC

    Is it safe to say John Wayne AKA: Duke being heavily associated with killing American Indians and presenting a side of American characters that are so negative, should Duke University change thier name to distance themselves from all of the un-PC associations John Wayne bestows upon them? Only in America…

      Yes it’s morally wrong to be nice to each other and not use words that are derogatory.

      • John Watt

        You can’t force people to be nice to each other. Banning certain words will not make anyone be nicer to anyone else. Mean people will find some other way to offend.

      • BarackMugabe

        ^Useful idiot

      • To ban words that you disapprove of or oppress the speech of others to whom you disagree is the worst kind of fascism.

        • sleepingtolive

          I didn’t see any banning. From what I read it is just a campaign to try to get people to not use words that are derogatory. And the reaction from the comments seem to suggest people advocating for being demeaning. I don’t use those phrases because I try to be nice to people. Why you would want to use words that are demeaning is beyond me.

          • The campaign should be about how to use counter speech toward speech you disagree with, not how to stifle speech you find offensive. Grow a pair.

      • Panicazi

        No, it’s morally wrong to find new ways to lie to each other about nature and reality.

      • Duke LaCroix

        No. It’s morally wrong to force people to be nice to each other and not use words that are derogatory.

        It was a good run while it lasted.

        • sleepingtolive

          Why is it morally wrong to force people to be nice and not use derogatory words? I mean God did command us to do so. Is God morally wrong?

          • Duke LaCroix

            God doesn’t force us to do anything.

            It’s our choice.

            Just like it should be at Duke.

          • sleepingtolive

            Yes but there will be consequences for disobeying God and especially for advocating disobeying Him. So since you think that such things are immoral, you must think God is immoral. But go ahead and keep trying to get people to disobey His commands, I’m sure He won’t mind.

          • Duke LaCroix

            He certainly isn’t happy with you forcing your will on others.

            I just got off the phone with him and he said he’s going to have a word with you.

            You,
            therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for
            at whatever point you judge another, you are condemning yourself,
            because you who pass judgment do the same things.

          • sleepingtolive

            I am not passing judgment of you, that’s His job. And I am not forcing my will on you, just telling you His will as He outlined in His word. He commanded us to be nice to one another, you advocate the use of unkind words. This goes against His commands.

            If you believe in Him you should be advocating the same as this campaign as it is Biblically commanded that you do what the campaign is advocating.

  • John Watt

    Soon they’ll have to ban the name of their own university. Duke is derogatory as in: “I gotta go take a Duke”

    • ElvisMoab

      What also has changed is that back then you could take immediate action, like a punch in the nose, and fix the offensive speech or behavior. Now days people are too dumb to understand what the First Amendment and Free Speech actually means. They tend to think that it means they have free license to say anything, anywhere, anytime without consequence. The First Amendment only guarantees political speech meaning that the government can’t arrest you for your political views.

(Personally, I do have issues with this one because of the pegorative inclusion of the final syllable “son”, implying masculinity upon the female. So the jury is out until further notice) 2. Don’t be a cuunt (used to be a legitimate, 4 letter Anglo-saxon noun, derived from the Latin “cunni”. 3. Butch. 4. Homo-nomo. 5. That’s so deviant. I am curious as to how long it will take before the noun “negro(o)” comes back into political favor, and I can drop the additional (o) to the word.

          So you advocate being demeaning. Does it make you feel like a real “man” to demean others? Why not try being nice and spreading happiness. You should try it, you might actually start feeling good enough about yourself that you don’t have to hurt others to feel good about yourself.

            Actually all three of those are the friend of homosexuals. It is what they use to combat oppression from bigots such as your self.

            You are still advocating the demeaning of others for no reason other than your right to be hurtful. Why do you want to be hurtful to others.

          • Joe

            You lie.

            Free speech? Like Dr. Laura? Anita Bryant? Carrie Prejean? Chiick Fil A? Duck Dynasty? Firefox? Speech codes? And this “don’t say…” campaign. The Gaystapo is all AGAINST Free Speech.

            Constitution? The Constitution was drafted and ratified in conjunction of many anti-Sodomy codes in nearly every state. In Colonial America, homosexuality was a hanging offense. The Constitution did nothing to change that. When the Civil War Amendments were ratified, anti-Gay penalties remained on the books, and stayed there until the Controversial 2003 LAWRENCE decision, which was largely based on Kinsey’s lies. There is NOTHING in the Constitution which protects deviant and deadly behavior.

            Truth? Homosexuals have made their successes based on lies, such as Kinseys’ 1 in 10 is Gay lie, and, all are equally at risk for AIDS lie, and homosexuals no more likely to molest than heteros lie.

            And you are lying now.

          • sleepingtolive

            Care to tell me where those people served time, how long there sentence was, and what charges they were imprisoned for?

            The constitution was also drafted when oppressive laws existed for blacks and women. I don’t see your points.

            The constitution does protect gays. Perhaps you don’t understand how it works. The first amendmemt and the tenth amendment protect gays. The constitution makes laws inwhich the state doesn’t have legal justification for unconstitutional. This is why judges are overturning anti-gay laws. Gays don’t have to have justification for being gay. The state has to have justification for treating gays differently or punishing them.. There aren’t any though so the state is failing at every turn.

          • Joe

            No they’re not.

            Homosexuals are always trying to get someone fired for something they said, getting ministers arrested, physically attacking them, and in the case of Floyd Lee Corkins, trying to commit a mass public shooting. The Leftist media hushes up this unhinged foaming homosexual rage at dissent, or even quoting the Bible. Homosexuals HATE Free Speech.

            Constitution? In Colonial America, homosexual acts were punishable by hanging. The Constitution did Nothing to change that. During the next round of amendments after the Civil War, strong anti-deviant laws remained on the books and the Amendments didn’t change them either. No, the Constitution is not hoe moe-friendly.

            Truth? From being closeted to Kinsey’s lies (one in ten gay), All are Equally at Risk of AIDS (lie — hoe moes have 50 TIMES the AIDS infection rate of Normals), hoe moes aren’t any more likely to molest (huge lie, this tiny 2 percent commits at least ONE THIRD of all kiddie rape), the entire Matthew Sheppard lie, ad nauseum.

            Homosexuals lie, lie, lie in order to make political gains. If the truth were known, hoe moes would still be in insane asylums.

          • sleepingtolive

            Heterosexuals lie all the time too. They lie in order to oppress homosexuals. Nobody says either side is devoid of bad people. And heterosexuals try to get homosexuals fired just for being gay.

          No, there are no qualities only exhibited by males or females. There is no such thing as masculine or feminine traits, as either gender can naturally exhibit any quality. Unless you care to list the qualities only seen in males, you’ve most likely fallen prey to the false dichotomy fallacy.

          • Daisytoo

            You’ve fallen prey to the false dick fallacy.

          • sleepingtolive

            So you can’t even come up with one quality that is exclusively possessed by either of the genders? Guess I am right, which is evident by your ad hominem attacks. It is the last bastion of those who have no rebuttal.

    • Pearl

      it reeks of testosterone

    • UtIdArWa

      To their thinking males are oppressors, so therefore anything hinting at maleness must be oppressive.

      • Daisytoo

        I agree w/you. That, and they hate men/masculinity.

  • Jean Poole

    How about banning MENstruate?

  • Tim

    You know what is truly offensive? THOUGHT AND WORD POLICE!

    I may not agree with certain words or phrases people say, but I believe everyone should be free to speak as they choose.

    I know, as a Christian, that if this trend continues, speech that includes “Jesus,” “The Holy Spirit,” “Christianity,” etc., will also soon be banned as “offensive” to others.

  • Daisytoo

    I demand that gay people stop referring to me as straight – by which they mean ‘boring’.

    • Joe

      I demand they refer to me as “Normal.”

      Moreover, I demand they refer to themselves as “Deviant.”

      • Daisytoo

        That works for me.

    • Pearl

      Linear?

    • Tim

      Or “vanilla.”

  • Forearmed

    Yep, you people at Duke are idiots. Those very phrases are meant to be offensive, and are insults for the most part. This is psychological manipulation at the Socialist best.
    Do you morons actually believe that by banning insults, people will stop thinking them. I would have expected more from a University, but this just proves that what used to be a place to gain a well rounded education, are now turning into control and socialist propaganda schools where they turn out nice little cogs to fit into the machinery, instead of thinking individuals.

    Another thing you morons forgot, was; “YOU CANNOT LEGISLATE MORALITY” !!!

    DUH !!!

    • Tim

      (Quote) Another thing you morons forgot, was; “YOU CANNOT LEGISLATE MORALITY” !!!(End Quote)

      We legislate morality all the time. If we didn’t, things like rape, pedophilia, necrophilia, bestiality, etc., would be permissible.

  • JohnnyTremain

    Wonder if any of the “Proles” at Duke ever bothered to read 1984, it’s obvious the “leaders” did…..

    “It’s a beautiful thing, the destruction of words.”

    this ban is, ” so gay”, homo, bit*h, don’t be a Pus*y”….”man up”

    • Daisytoo

      Nooooooo .. 🙂

  • Shagnasty1

    I think several of these terms are what a twerp would say however “Man Up!” and “Don’t Be A Pussy!” have true meaning. Bottom line is Duke, like many other colleges is violating the 1st Amendment rights of students by banning these terms. Duke, MAN UP! and quit being offended pussys.

  • Jim Rall

    Apparently this liberal re-education camp(us) never heard of the 1st Amendment. You know what “Duke”… when I PAY YOU to attend your university then I’ll say whatever the F—k I want to… and you’ll like it, or I’ll take my money elsewhere… get it.

  • Hill411

    WOW!!!This is great. I can’t wait until the ‘feminine hygiene products’ are removed from ads on TV, radio, magazines and the internet. Also all the beauty ads. I am not one of the beautiful people and am sooooo offended. Get rid of those expensive car ads, they remind me how poor I am and that makes me lose self respect. Oh yeah! The real estate ads have to go!!! I just cry myself to sleep every night because I can’t afford the houses that are shown. Also dump all the ads for California. It has too many beaches and movie stars. California also has too many libs; this makes libs in other states feel inadequate. I also think skin color and language should be banned because both demonstrate that people are different; can’t have difference just not politically correct. Pick something….anything…there is someone or a group somewhere who will find something/anything offensive. To these individuals: Eat snit and drop in your tracks (have to be verbally sensitive).

  • tired170

    I don’t say Duke University because the very idea of thought / language police nauseates me. However, I can say “Screw you Duke” and if you find that to be offensive, so be it. I’ll just file it under “Who Gives a Rat’s Ass”

  • Davole

    Are the linguistically challenged so-called students at Duke prepared to “duke it out” with anyone who won’t fall in line with their attempt to mandate Dukesqueak?

  • jamesben

    “Delegitimizes homosexuality?” No homosexuality “delegitimizes” itself. It’s unnatural – it’s doesn’t need help to be illegitimate.

    Parents – STOP supporting these Leftist/homosexual indoctrination mills – send them to State U. – save some money and by a summer home on the beach.
    let them get their indoctrination for 1/3 the price at U.N.C.

    • kirb

      Does “unnatural” mean it’s not found in nature?

      • Daisytoo

        Animals can perform homosexual acts because they’re animals. jamesben would be more correct to say that when humans behave in a homosexually perverse manner, they’re bestial.

        • kirb

          Do animals perform heterosexual acts because they’re trying to be human?

          • John Watt

            More likely just trying to perpetuate their species.

          • kirb

            So if they’re not trying to perpetuate the species, that’s wrong?

          • John Watt

            If the animals are not trying to perpetuate their species they must be trying to be human.

          • Daisytoo

            No.

      • Freedom?

        Pedophilia and necrophilia is found in nature.

        The emperor penguin for example. So….Do you endorse those “natural” acts?

        I know I sure don’t.

        • kirb

          Computers aren’t “natural.”

          Baseball isn’t “natural.”

          • Freedom?

            What’s your point?

            Homosexuality is not a computer or baseball.

          • kirb

            Homosexuality is natural. It is found in nature.

            About the same percentage of animals are gay as what is generally found in human societies.

            The main argument against it? You cannot produce offspring.

            Wow.

          • John Watt

            Can you provide a source for this claim?

          • Sterny

          • jamesben

            What universe are you from? “Gaytopia?”

      • jamesben

        Well, you and “Bruce” can “couple,” but no “little kirb jr.” can result – so I think “nature” has already ruled in “my favor” concerning this particular “law of nature,” don’t you think?

        Ya, it has.

        • kirb

          Are you unaware of a thing called science?

          2 mean can now have a child. So can 2 women. Recent scientific reports have shown that sperm can be made from stem cells, negating the need for a male.

          Science!

          • John Watt

            Synthetic sperm as it were…. goes good with synthetic gin.

          • jamesben

            Dude – Leftist – manbait – NO amount of science can produce a new life from two of the male species, OR two of the female species – takes one of each.

            No “male-male” procreation – hasn’t happened. Period.

            So ya, SCIENCE.

          • kirb

            You’re right.

            It hasn’t happened yet, so it never will.

            Science is bogus!

          • jamesben

            Dude, homo – wishing for “Gay Utopia” where gayness perpetuates itself ISN’T REALITY – no matter how much you say “science.”

            Science doesn’t support your gay fantasy.

    For the Leftists in America, it’s all about “Free Speech” as long as it’s THEIR SPEECH. If you dare say anything else, then they want to ban it.

    Have these Leftists ever supposed that the words themselves aren’t negative, but the vocal tone and intended venom in the voice of the person using the word?

    Go ahead. Ban “homo”. These people will find another word to use. Then what are you going to do? Ban the next word? These Leftists are out of control and I say those students should be defiant. Don’t let anyone tell you what you can and can’t say in private conversations. Public conversation, like in classrooms, is different, but in private, people have the right to say whatever they want.

  • barthomew

    A University of Chicago study stated that the word “homophobia” should not be used because it goes against good science; it said that one might think that homosexual actions are wrong not because of some alleged bias, but because of the speaker’s moral and/or religious convictions. Others have noted that the term is used to try to ban people from being eligible to have an opinion on the subject. The Duke campaign ignores this science on the subject of a word the campaigners happen to like.

    Anna Deveare Smith likewise said on PBS Newshour that the term “racist” should not be used, because it is too simplistic and is used too readily to rule a person out of the dialogue. The campaign is not taking into account this point and so does not include that word in its list of banned terms.

    • kingdad

      Heterophobia is much more common these days than any homophobia.
      I guess that’s because there are evil straight folks hiding in Gay Closets and under their beds that sneek out at night and try to make them straight. Rubbing Hetero germs on them, making them drink straight water, and eat real food other than each other.

    They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator… Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error… They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy… they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

    I’m so old, I remember when you went to college for an education. And that took most of your time. Now it seems studying and opening ones’ mind is way down the list of goals.

  • Verbotene Gedanken

    Newspeak is the fictional language in the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, written by George Orwell. It is a controlled language created by the totalitarian state as a tool to limit freedom of thought, and concepts that pose a threat to the regime such as freedom, self-expression, individuality, peace, etc. Any form of thought alternative to the party’s construct is classified as “thoughtcrime.”

      Attention, Attention!!!
      All college students throughout the land, all students are now required to have their rooms monitored by video to make sure they are not tempted to stray into impure thoughts or words.Anyone caught mumbling any banned words or phrases in their sleep will be subjected to remedial gagging.

      This announcement was issued by the Interior Ministry, formerly known as the DNC, and now staffed with shock troops trained by ACORN.

    Are the words “fetus” and “baby” allowed on campus, or are they too disgusting?

    • jaydeebee

      You can only use the term “baby” if the organism is a) wanted or b) already born. If the organism is still in the womb, you must use the term “fetus” or “blob of cells”. That way, there’s no guilt should one decide to terminate.

      Yes because there will always be people like you who believe it is their God given right to be demeaning to others. It must me you feel really good to hurt others. Bet it makes you feel real “manly”.

    Seems that the university has confused words with thought. Where there is a will there is a way and the condemnation of gay activism will continue. Maybe they can say something like Hey don’t be Red White and Blue meaning “Man up you pussist faggot” (bet this word Fa**0t) gets flagged as offensive by the computer). This is just pointy headed affirmative action promotions at work. It is a shame that people far more educated for their intelligence gravitate to the leadership and ruling bodies of condo associations and university boards and in the current case the executive office of the President of the USA, a Red White and Blue place…or is that France? We all need to “:man up’ and oust these nimrods.

  • crackerman

    No wonder so many kids grow up to be queer now….

  • KikiEm

    In my bartender days, college instructors would come in for lunch (and their lunch martini) Their language always “caught me off guard.” One phrase I recall is when they were describing one of their colleague’s wives as “a corn-fed midwestern porker.” Their off-color language is no different than the rest of us riff-raff.

  • haroldcrews

    It is no less wrong to be overly sensitive as it is to be insensitive. After these words and phrases are banned which ones are next? People who are looking for reasons to be offended will find reasons to be offended. This is particularly the case when those in power are sympathetic to them and they are empowered by being offended.

  • Iron Fisted Ruler of CANDYLAND

    Gentler, Kinder America…..

  • Mr_Paine

    I find the university offensive. Mebbe those that want to restrict people’s 1st Amendment rights (among others) ought not to be receiving public financing of any kind.

    Let’s see if we hear any denunciation of the left’s horrific words against conservatives and Christians. The denomization of the right sounds to me a lot like how Goebells demonized the Jews. And we know how that worked out.

  • cleo48

  • Victor

    This cracks me up. Let’s not discourage this language because it is crude, but because it might offend a certain politically correct group. People of this age have been talking this way for as long as I can remember, but somehow most of us managed to push it aside and get on with life. I wonder how concerned they are for language used on campus to criticize capitalism, American history, Christianity or Conservatism? Might be an interesting little research project

    Bet if you said “man up” in Spanish it would be ok. Soon they will ban single words. Up seems to be used in man up, screwed up, F up, up yours and other sayings. Next move will be to ban the word “up”.

    I don’t normally use those phrases, but I’m not too young to start. It is amazing how people feel some part of society needs protection from being insulted, but doesn’t think this infringes on free speech. I think free speech includes the right to offended by someone else’s comments.

  • Julie S.

    Does anyone think this kind of thing contributes to the increased violence in our schools?

  • Greg Tracy

    Remove one word, or set of words, and others will take their place. Communication is going to happen because people need to define things in their lives. Some have good connotations and some don’t. But this whole idea that you’re going to completely ban entire sets of words because you don’t like them is ludicrous. You’re offended? Tough. That’s probably why someone is using it in the first place. They want to offend you because they don’t like something about you or disagree with you. Grow up. It’s going to happen.

    This is not a good day for university students in America. They are revealed today as world-class idiots, and an embarrassment to their schools and to their parents.

    Gay: having or showing a merry, lively mood: gay spirits; gay music. Synonyms: cheerful, gleeful, happy, glad, cheery, lighthearted, joyous, joyful, jovial; sunny, lively, vivacious, sparkling; chipper, playful, jaunty, sprightly, blithe. Bright or showy: gay colors; gay ornaments. Synonyms: colorful, brilliant, vivid, intense, lustrous; glittering, theatrical, flamboyant.

    In other words – banning the word gay, is ANTI-gay.

    If this ridiculousness is the best the students at our “higher learning” establishments can come up then God help us.

    I now consider the word “Duke” to be offensive. Let’s change it to “Duchess”.

    I can see “dont be a P” as offensive but shame on the university~ a beacon of free speech, banning free speech!~ Pull those kids outta there Parents.

  • Brad

    How gay… Also, “Don’t be a pu$$y” isn’t about a female body part. It’s “Don’t be a scaredy cat”, “Don’t be a pussycat.”, “Don’t be a pu$$y.” It just got changed and shortened over the decades.

    • BatBoy

      women will still “throw the eyes at ya” when you say it, they do.
      Its best not to argue with them either! LOL!

  • ScottGlasel

    That’s the gayest thing that I ever heard! Man up and get over it.

  • Lance Harris

    I’m offended by the campaign. I believe in being civil to anyone whose values or lifestyle does not mirror my own but if I have an issue with an individual and lash out, its not a blanket statement to be applied to any person affiliated with them. If you are that hurt by hearing words spoken in ignorance or intollerance, don’t hang around and keep listening. Seems all the offended people go to great lengths to make sure they are there to hear it.

  • Anthony Artesto

    This is so disturbing. A clear cut attack against masculinity. What is wrong with the leaders in this America? After seeing governments grow to powerful restricting freedoms of the people, our fore-fathers wrote the constitution under God but, the leaders of America have been successful in pushing God aside and amending the constitution. We need Jesus Christ and prayer to oust these pathetic leaders and reclaim The Great America.

    The time to have gotten on top of misuse of the word gay was when it first began to mean something other than happy.

      I so agree. The perverts have misappropriated a perfectly good word which used to mean nothing more than “happy”, just the way that they’ve misappropriated the word “marriage”.

  • BatBoy

    Im offended that so many people are offended these days, that’s offensive!

  • johnhay

    What happened to “stick and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me”? People are giving WAY too much power to other people to hurt them with words. I’d like to go back to the days that we were more tolerant, and if someone really insulted you, you could have it out without lawyers getting involved. These anti-First Amendment speech codes only serve to divide people, and push them into their own groups, ’cause you’re terrified to talk to anyone you might unwittingly offend.

  • JohnFLob

    Do you have a self identity or did you go to Duke?

  • Jo Carol

    oh good grief, maybe they should man up and stop being bitches. Maybe if certain groups would stop hijacking words they wouldn’t be so offended all the time. Gay used to mean happy, queer was strange, they didn’t mean homosexuals.

    this whole campaign is run by a bunch of pu$$ies that need to man up and stop being bitches. It is quite gay that they get offended to the point of needing ban the expressions.

    So I’ll give the little girls a lesson on how the world really works.

    If someone uses this language in front of you, tell them about it, right there, on the spot, to their face. No need for a whole campaign or public banning. Mean what you say, say what you mean, and by god back it up with your tiny fists if you have too. But this passive aggressive ninny BS has got to stop. Life isn’t fair, no one ever said it was. This idea of equality has got to stop, we are not all equal and that is a very good thing.

  • Founders_1791

    The 1st Amendment of the Constitution means you have to accept insults whether you like it or not because it is protected free speech.

    Most ‘normal’ Americans have suffered teasing at school at some time or another in their childhood and our parents would comfort us with this old nursery rhyme:

    Sticks and stones will break my bones
    But words will never harm me.

    It originated from the African Methodist Episcopal Church who published it in 1862 to prevent victims of verbal taunting from resorting to violence. It is grounded in Common Law which holds no level of name-calling is grounds for violence.

    Yet today we do see physical retaliation with attacks on your businesses and personal life if you reject homosexuality or utter an unsavory word towards a thin skinned minority group of one ilk or another.

    This is not the American way ……political correctness must stop!

    • ElvisMoab

      You do not have to accept insults. If you choose to say stupid things you are on your own. I strongly dislike “Politically Correct Speech” but the First Amendment only guarantees political speech meaning that the government can’t arrest you for your political views.

      • Founders_1791

        Wrong! ….Duke receives “public money” and that changes the tune!

        • ElvisMoab

          Wrong again; Duke doesn’t make laws. Accepting Federal money makes them beholden to Federal Laws.

  • JohnFLob

    Instead of 1984 and Newspeak it is 2014 and Dukenospeak.

    Shouldn’t they also outlaw “Get in touch with your feminine side” since it implicitly denigrates the male side? Or stop people from saying that “If women ruled the world, there’d be no war?” Where do you stop? Just outlaw the things you disagree with? I noticed that they don’t find the term “breeders”, which gays use as derogatory, particularly offensive.

    Incidentally, being gay isn’t “getting in touch with your feminine side.” That idea should be offensive to women, who are nothing like gays.

      “Queer” describes it perfectly. “Homo” doesn’t quite do it.

  • strait talker

    These words and phrases actually express and convey ideas and meanings much more effectively than perhaps lengthy sentences do. Most people are intelligent enough to know when it is inappropriate to use them.
    We don’t need the “word police” to tell us what to say.
    So, why don’t the “word police” “man up” and stop acting like “pussies.” “That’s so gay.”

That makes sense these jack-holes don’t even know what the words phobia and bias mean. Anyways LGBTQ, the Q reminds me of the 5 principles of dodge ball….DODGE, DIP, DUCK, DIVE, AND…DODGE.

  • soccerchick

    This goes too far. I am a minority that has been subjected to less than kind language since I was a child. But instead of caving, it gave me a better understanding of how bullies use their “power” try to hurt me. I think this solution is coming at the problem completely backwards. Instead of forbidding bullies to be bullies (which we know won’t work) empower those that feel helpless or beaten down with personal tools to use in these situations.
    When my child started getting bullied for his name and for his ancestry in kindergarten, we talked to him about what motivates bullies and broke down the words that were being used to hurt him (none are on any banned list by the way). We talked with him about different ways to deal with these situations to take the power away from the bully and not become a bully himself. In the end, he chose to use humor to deflect the verbal blows. He practiced with his Dad and came up with some zingers! that week, he defended himself from bullies on the playground with words, and when he got the entire playground to laugh at the bully that one time, the bully never bothered him again.
    Don’t make people into victims. Bullies will always exist but we are disarming our children on how to deal with them. We want everyone to play fair but the world is not fair and the sooner our children learn to face all kinds of bullies, (verbal, physical, emotional) the less they will have to fear when they are facing bullies as adults.

    That’s so gay. I hope the students man up and take a stand against censorship..now I know that Duke is a private university and censorship rules don’t really apply, but can you imagine the outrage against “censorship” we would have if they banned the phrase “white privilege” or “teabagger” as racist or inflammatory?

  • Jock Doubleday

    Did you know that many gay people have delegitimizing names for straight people? If you didn’t know that, you’d probably be surprised to learn what the specific language is that has been created for this purpose. How do I know that gay people have delegitimizing names for straight people? Because my homosexual friends in L.A., San Francisco and New York use these delegitimizing terms openly. Is it a problem that both gays and straights use terms that attempt to delegitimize each other? It is for control-obsessed persons (who have often graduated into government or academic administrative positions, since such institutions attract control-obsessive persons), persons who believe that the First Amendment was created with a shrug instead of by the blood of men who died for the idea that freedom of speech is sacred. Where does the attempt to ban certain kinds of speech lead? Just look into history.

    • Jock Doubleday

      “Breeder,” a term used by some gay people to talk about straight people, is clearly meant to be an insult. And so what? Will Duke University attempt to ban this particular insult or only those insults aimed at minorities? Will a selective ban on insults be implementable? Wouldn’t such a ban immediately be transgressed, perhaps with additional vigor? . . . How about this: Instead of trying to ban speech, bring people together for an insult-fest at the end of which the winners are those who hug most enthusiastically their insulters and the losers are those who do not allow themselves to be hugged by those whom they have insulted. Words are powerful, but those who do not make the effort to transcend words are doomed always to be their victims.

      • ElvisMoab

        Breeder is a term for self-affirming insecure people who use their children as trophies. Has nothing to do with heterosexuality but rather bad parents.

    I think being a pussy is derived from the word pussilanimous. At any rate, it means being a wimp. Just like being a tiger means being strong. Nothing to do with females. Nada.

    What about free speech? What about the F word?

Is this just a target for certain people? How about censoring blacks from calling each other the N word. How about banning rap music. See how ridiculous this is? This is beyond ridiculous. Insanity rules…You think you can really ban language? Good grief. Higher education is more like lower education…

  • Name

    And you have to be ‘smart’ to get into this re-education camp. What is truly scary is that it appears that the University has permitted these facists the right to use school property – they are painting this propaganda on a ‘bridge’ on campus. I wonder how long my protest about murdering babies propaganda, painted on a that same bridge would not be desecrated (assuming they even permitted such debate)?

  • Kevmo

    I’m wondering when calling somebody a pùssy is somehow supposed to be worse than calling them a dïck? If you’re calling somebody by a specific genitalia, it’s not a compliment, so that one’s just stupid.

    Saying “no homo” has nothing to do with actual gay people. It’s a self-deprecating joke about the phrasing of a given conversation.

    “Man up” doesn’t have any bearing on whether you cry or have emotions, and it’s remarkably ignorant to think it has anything to do with that. “Man up” simply means “behaving like a grown man instead of a little boy.”

    Bïtch refers to complaining, people who complain, or who are otherwise unpleasant to be around.

    It’s like a group of ESL students learned a few idiomatic phrases and completely misinterpreted their meanings. The only one of the above “offensive” phrases that actually makes sense as an “offensive” phrase is interchanging stupid and gay.

            No, this is about trying to force (legislate) people to like and accept people they don’t like and things that they disagree with.

And if this continues for another 20 years you can bet your arse that it will undermine our freedom of speech.
            Can anyone over the age of 40 not see that we live in a much less free society than we did 40 years ago? Extrapolate that out a few decades and it isn’t hard to see where we’re headed.

          • oborune

            pfft. this is a private school and if they want to “legislate” people from talking like assholes then that’s what they will do. once you are off of school grounds you can go back to talking like an idiot. this is not a attack on freedom of speech, more like a suggestion on how to not sound like an asshole. you are going to school so maybe you should be open to learning about language and how it affects people around you

          • Not Sure

            I don’t care how it affects people around me. If you insult me it does not matter because in order to be offended I need to respect you first. And I don’t respect you (because I don’t know you).

          Why assume I’m young? I could be an old “blithering idiot.” Honestly, don’t care what you think.

            Lmao. Because only the young can talk as foolishly as you! 🙂 “If you aren’t “progressive” at 20, you haven’t got a heart – if you aren’t “conservative” at 40, you haven’t got a brain.”

            Yes, someone is trying to instill a stifling of speech, but somehow those opposed to this “1984” and re-writing definitions of words, have their “priorities out of whack”.
            How about people just man up and quit being such babies? Didn’t your momma ever tell you “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me”. It’s not the people speaking whatever words with the problems. It’s the pussies. bitches and metro-boys that can’t take any kind of criticism or words without getting their widdle panties in a bunch.
            Respect is earned. Act like a momma’s boy and you’ll be called a momma’s boy. I give a general respect to all human beings – whether that is raised or lowered is dependent on their own actions, which speak a lot louder than words.

          • TokenOfficeGoth

            “Someone is trying to instill a stifling of speech“ says the guy arguing that the status quo is fine as is and that a poster campaign at a university is tyrannical.

          Getting warmer… Yes political speech is protected. That’s all. Nothing in this story is about restraining political speech. And the First Amendment won’t protect you if you threaten (verbally or otherwise) someone regardless if they are an elected official or private citizen.

          Saw them in concert 2 years ago with my son. Third row center — best concert I’ve ever been to!

          This song, as political commentary, is sadly ironic — the band members are liberals and this song was clearly intended to portray a dystopian future in which right-wing anti-music clerics enforced rigid behavioral conformity. However, it is liberals who really turned out to be the “it doesn’t fit the plan” thought police.

    What’s unintentionally comical about this, is they apparently have no objection to you insulting another person — they just want to make sure that you insult that person in a politically-correct way, lest you accidentally insult someone else. Kind of like that old line, “Don’t call him a horse’s ass — that’s an insult to horse’s asses!”

    What is the definition of “queer?”

    • JoJoJams

      The 1) spot in the dictionary is: strange or odd from a conventional viewpoint; unusually different;

      And that they are. So, they are trying to redefine words (so typical of regressive “progressives”) in order to legitimize what they do, so that they can feel “good” about themselves.

      • tjhawk

    I recall one year when I was in college we were given a full page list of things “not to say” just to be implemented for Senior weekend when the prospective new students would be visiting.

    About 40 of us, bored that weekend, sat on the curb outside the dorm and chanted the list for a couple hours. Quite a few very offensive phrases/comments in that list too.

    They quit giving us speech codes after that; the one year they had issues were the ones they created; apparently they learned more from that than we did.

    This article refers to “banned words” and uncritically quotes a professor (in an unrelated field) mentioning “censoring.”

    Nowhere does this article actually say that these words are being censored or that students who use them will face negative consequences.

    In fact, it says “word-discouragement” right at the top, suggesting that compliance is voluntary. Why speak of “banned words” later on, then?

    This is another example of moral panic by the media over perceived political correctness in post-secondary education. Attempting to shift the conversation is not censorship.

  • Arthur

    Perhaps one is right to get annoyed when some says “don’t use that word!” But if you’re annoyed by this campaign, you ought to ask yourself why. Are you upset by someone making the case that language has power and that calling someone the word fag, for example, can be hurtful? I, for one, have no interest in banning anyone’s use of phrases like ‘man up’ or ‘stop being a pussy,’ but banning the words is not what’s on the table here. It’s a campaign to change attitudes. That’s not banning. That’s not a step in the direction of banning language, and it’s not an affront to the First Amendment.

    You can be mad that a group of Duke students wants to change the way people talk, but for goodness’ sake, this about getting people to think twice before calling a guy a fag if you don’t think he’s acting manly enough, or calling a lady a bitch if she speaks her mind. People still have all the right to use that kind of language, but if you want to, for example, tell a person to ‘man up,’ you should be aware of the effects of your words. You are by definition trying to change someone’s actions and attitudes to align with your own. And I’m sorry, but phrases like ‘man up’ are not about encouraging masculine behavior. As a dude who goes to college with a lot of other dudes, I know how the phrase is used and what it means. It’s meant to shame a person into behaviors that often involve binge drinking, pranking, or illegality – or as Hendrickson seems to think of it, masculinity.

    • Not Sure

      Now you’re talking about peer pressure. That will never go away. They will just replace “man up” with something else.

    • Just remember one thing, what you enforce on others comes back to bite you in the butt in the end.

    • Joe

      You know, in a just and ordered society, shaming has a positive utility.

      You look at REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE and an undisciplined trouble maker is called a punk and thereby encouraged to clean up his act.

      A promiscuous girl, who might otherwise catch and spread STDs, have an illegitimate child (who end up in crime and costing taxpayers), is shamed into trying at least to settle on one man.

      One who is fat, to trim down and become healthier.

      But who REALLY needs to be shamed are those who engage in deviant acts, for which there are no redeeming public qualities. It degrades morals, impacts children, is a massive financial drain on society and spreads deadly, contagious and incurable diseases.

      As such, words and actions condemning deviant and negative behavior serves a vital, correcting purpose in society.

      Corrective words should be ENCOURAGED, not banned.

  • Jesse Pennabaker

    ACTUALLY, “pussy” has nothing to do with gender. You’d think a school as highly regarded as Duke would know this.
    “Pussy” doesn’t mean “vagina” when you say “don’t be a pussy”; It is short for “pusillanimous” – showing a lack of courage or determination.

  • mikelorrey

    I find “Duke” to be a sexist referent to a patriarchal title of male-dominant feudal aristocracy and should be abolished.

  • guest_92

    This is a voluntary campaign encouraging people to use different words. No one is talking about banning the words themselves. What’s the problem? Stop calling people trying to persuade and make social change “totalitarians”. If you have an alternative reason why “That’s gay” or whatever is a positive thing, make your own meme and try to convince people otherwise. The right to free speech does not mean you are shielded from other people saying that /what/ you say has problems.

    • Nano

      The goal of social change is policy change i.e. legislative change. These people want it to be illegal to say anything that disturbs their world. And then when that is accomplished, it will be very damaging to free speech

  • safsdfas

    It’s funny, my immediate thought it ‘this is the gayest thing I’ve ever seen’

  • pathetic

    Note that none of these images read, “I don’t say [XXXX] because the government would throw me in prison, take away my rights, and/or persecute me for it.” Asking someone to make the DECISION not to use language that they KNOW is hurtful and offensive–especially when there are plenty of ways to say the same thing without purposely offending people–is not even close to “censorship”. Unless someone can make a counter-argument that recognizes the distinction between actual censorship and somebody requesting that you choose not to perform harmful speech actions, all of your “wahhh waahhhh but my free speech!” arguments are invalid.

    Homosexuals are so mentally / emotionally unstable that they cannot handle anything but 100% support / validation for their fecal fetish without being driven (by their own admission) to depression, addiction and suicide, so all this “hate speech” and “word policing” is actually a matter of survival for homosexuals.

  • BillyBEAT

    I’ll say whatever the hell I feel like saying.

  • lecram

    Freedom of speech does not mean you have the right not to be offended. It means you can say as you wish, no matter how ugly it may be. If free speech were to cause actual physical harm (yelling ‘fire’ in a theatre as an example) or a proven lie that caused harm to another, then that person would become liable either criminally or civilly. I’m assuming the PHD’s at these universities have never studied a document called the Constitution. Maybe that should be a requirement before given authority to instruct others.

    Take a look at all the comments on this. Most of them are angry and hate filled. maybe this poster was a good idea, maybe its got people talking. the sad point is that we could have a discussion about language but too many ignorant people are just mashing there hate into the keyboard. gg merica gg

    • Joe

      First off, it’s “their” not “there” in that context.

      Second, it’s not hate, as much as it is disgust (at what homosexuals DO), coupled with anger at the audacity of a deviant and heavily-diseased subset of society arrogantly presuming to tell us what we can and cannot say.

      We’ve pretty much had it with the Gaystapo’s tactics of personal destruction (such as how the sweet and beautiful Carrie Prejean was taken out by the angry and lisping Perez Hilton).

      Essentially, the Normals are rapidly approaching that tipping point that says: ‘enough is enough!’ if not there already.

    • Atilla Thehun

      Nobody’s mashing hate – at least as I read it. Intelligent, fair-minded people realize that individuals – all individuals have the right to independent opinion about anything. Now how they act is a different story. Duke is trying to suppress/repress/oppress expression of opinion. There’s a recognized term for that: boneheaded.

  • To all university professors and grads-changing language will not solve the problems of our society. You want to end racism and stop discrimination? Find a logical solution and stop telling people to not stand up for themselves and say what is on their minds. By being “politically correct,” you still encourage racism and discrimination with sugar coated language. This paranoia started in Russia before they turned communist. Have you forgotten that bad lesson? Remember what you enforce on the masses comes to bite you in butt in the end when you are faced with jail time for speaking your mind in a society that no longer tolerates free speech!

    The university system of the United States is becoming nothing more than a progressive propaganda mill. The more words you can’t say, the more restricted your speech becomes. Should there be words you can’t say? No, none, including some really bad ones. However, if you offend someone and they take offense, don’t be surprised at the result.

    You can’t teach people to be responsible for their speech, but they will get the point, after a while, of what is approved of by people. These same people who don’t want us to be able to say “man up” also want us to be forced to listen to the “f” word in half the movies we view. Be careful whose speech you restrict, those things have a habit of coming out wrong.
