MILWAUKEE — In Wokeland, college students better use “gender-inclusive” language on their assignments, if they know what’s good for them.
Marquette University Visiting Assistant Professor of philosophy James Bahoh reportedly threatened student Josh Guckenburg that if he didn’t ditch terms like “mankind” for “humankind” on his next paper points would be deducted from his grade.
Guckenburg provided Campus Reform with a screenshot of the grade summary from one of his papers, which contains a comment admonishing, “use gender inclusive language: humanity is not ‘man,’ nor is it a ‘he.'”
The student took his bias concern to Marquette’s vice provost for Academic Affairs and ultimately Bahoh “indicated his willingness to accept” future papers without “gender-inclusive” language, provided that Guckenberg include a footnote “to clarify the personal belief that guides you to reject gender-inclusive language.”
If only such politically correct nonsense were a footnote in the brief but insufferable era of wokeness.
