YOUR HIGHER EDUCATION DOLLARS: ‘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.

The thought and speech police are out in full force at Duke University… who by the way, is regularly  receiving K-12 academic data in to ‘analyze’.   I’m not sure why they didn’t just violate the 1st Amendment like other universities have instead of launching this shame campaign.
