Headlines of the Day

From Instapundit:

The University of North Carolina has taken down its Employee Forum post labeling Christmas vacations and staff golf outings microaggressions.

Originally:

To help staff members avoid microaggressions, the University of North Carolina advises gender-neutral dress codes and avoiding phrases like “husband/boyfriend.”

More details:

Moreover, the guide adds that “addressing trans people with incorrect gender pronouns, calling them by former names, inquiring about their ‘real’ identity, asking them to explain their gender identity, and denying or failing to acknowledge their pronouns, name, or identity” suggests to the recipient that “as a trans person, you are inferior to and less authentic than cisgender (non-trans) people.”

As Orwell pointed out, if you want to control people, first control their language.

UNC backpedaled, saying

“The blog post you refer to was created by the Employee Forum, which does not speak for the University. The information in the post does not reflect University guidelines or policy.

Nothing to see here, move along.

Data?  We don’t need no stinkin’ data!

Who are you going to believe, me or your lying eyes?
