Should change "senior" since the connotation could be that of an old person.....
Should change "junior" because that is another word for a male named after their father, too gender specific.......
Should change "sophmore" since the word origin of "moros" means moron, meaning sophmore means wise moron. We cannot tolerate calling anyone a moron....

Next up I am petitioning MLB to force the Yankees to change their name, because its a demeaning term to Northerners. Its disrespectful!

This is the crap that ended up being one reason Donald Trump got elected. Thanks libnuts. You're really helping a whole lot.

And he will win again in 2020 because of stuff like this, which is fine by me. Lol

Which is my fear, unless by some miracle he actually becomes presidential and turns into a good leader, dealing in reality. I'm not holding my breath. I know you like him, but America elected a headcase, and part of the fault for that lies with the crazy wing of the "liberal" base and the Democrats failing to connect with America as a result of playing to that base.

Well, if you think that's bad, this one is right next to it. At the university of Arizona, professors and students are being taught "ouch/oops". As in, when you are offended by something, anything, you say "ouch". And the offender is supposed to respond "oops". Really.

And after this exchange, we all get juice boxes, orange slices, a trophy and find a safe place for a nappy.

So, you cant invite a colleague to play golf because its a "fairly expensive and inaccessable sport", yet every major state university has designed, built and maintained said golf courses for years. Some (like Penn State) have two courses to maintain.

"Expensive and inaccessible"

Funny, the same words could be used to describe many of the colleges where this PC nonsense emanates from. :whistle:/>

It's any college today. Any out of state public college starts at $40k/year. And let's face it, only 2 years of a 4 year degree are directly applicable to your field of study. Another 2 years of worthless BS courses designed to grab money. No biology or math major will benefit from learning about the renessaince period. Good to know? Sure, but should not be required.

I came from a college where freshmen were called "first-years." Honestly, it's so dumb. I really couldn't care less. I have two perspectives, other than the fact that this is so incredibly dumb. First, as others have said, it's stuff like this that got DJT elected. Second, if you're a progressive who REALLY cares about women's issues, isn't the freshmen vs. first-year discussion a useless and pointless distraction from real issues women face on college campuses such as rape?
