University of New Hampshire Finds Everything Offensive

A now-removed “Bias Free Language Guide” by the Community, Equity and Diversity department at the University of New Hampshire was designed to promote a more inclusive campus environment. The guide deemed many commonly used terms ‘problematic’, providing a more politically correct term to use instead. Some of the words deemed ‘problematic’ include “senior citizen”, “obese”, “American”, and “homosexual”. Respectively, the ‘preferred’ terms for each item are “person of advanced age”, “person of size”, “U.S. citizen” or “Resident of the U.S.”, and “same gender loving”.

According to Campus Reform, University of New Hampshire President Mark Huddleston condemned the language guide, declaring that he is “troubled by many things.” Despite the language guide being removed, the university still provides training on how to be a good ally in “safe zones” and learning to become a “Social Justice Educator.”
