Idiot University of Pittsburgh Department Puts ‘Secretary,’ ‘Clerk,’ and ‘Omsbudsman’ on ‘Sexist Language’ List

The University of Pittsburgh has declared that terms such as “secretary,” “clerk,” and “omsbudsman” are considered “Sexist Language.” A new “Gender-Inclusive/Non-Sexist Language Guidelines and Resources” page made by the Office for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion at the University of Pittsburgh features a section titled “Terms to Use to Avoid Sexist Language.” The guide also considers “mankind,” “chairman,” “freshman,” and “ladies and gentlemen” examples of “Sexist Language” that is considered “Language Not to Use.”
