The Problem Is That They Didn’t Take Political Correctness Far Enough

Posted on October 29, 2012 8:00 pm

The University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill has removed the word “freshman” from official university documents in favor of the more “gender inclusive” term “first year student”.

This is ridiculous. If they REALLY want to avoid offending people, they need to change their name to “UNC – Hill”.

    How about they cut to the chase and call it, Liberal Bed Wetting University of North Carolina? Those who have given their lives for this country from the state of NC are spinning in their graves. Shame on them.

    Naaaah…call it UNC-Pagan Mound of Gaia.

    Frosh=First Year Indoctrinatee

    Senior=Fourth Year Useful Idjit

    Undergrad=Indoctrinated Tool/Ideological Puppet

    Full Professor=Tenured Master Indoctrinator

    The word “North” smacks of regional prejudice, Carolina is overtly feminine in the same male chauvinist pig way of always calling a ship a “she” Hill discriminates against people from prairies and University might be a code word for the bourgeoisie controlled status-quo

    Maybe they should change the entire name to some think like: The Friendly Association of Really Talented Educational Diversity (FARTED)

    Fai Mao – It’s even worse:

    “The region was named Carolus, a Latin form of Charles, in honor of King Charles. King Charles II, his son, changed the spelling to Carolina in 1663.”

    So, yeah, it’s just more blatant patriarchal oppression.

    UNC – Hill : Which is appropriately “unchill”

    Ugh. The metastasizing tumor of my state.

    If they really want to stop offending people and do the right thing they should just change the name to Closed

    They passed on the obvious choice….person of indeterminate freshness….don’t want to leave out the slightly-stale-persons.

    Seanmahair, that might save some time when people ask me why I hate UNC so much. Besides being a NCSU (a primarily engineering/agricultural school) student, UNC (primarily a law/medical school) has a reputation for being… what’s a more polite word for “arrogant, bratty snobs?”

    You know what they do at our rivalry games? They come wearing overalls. I think the idea is to mock of NCSU for having it’s origins as an agricultural school. I’d love to hear their ideas of what a world without farmers would be like. Can’t possibly be worse than one without lawyers.

    But I’m not gonna lie, the fact that most cars I see with UNC stickers also have Obama stickers (if they have political stickers) has a lot to do with it.
