Nicely done, subby.  +1 Internets for you.

They really got munsoned.

Bunch of pussies
 
2014-04-29 09:41:44 AM  
Those pussies need to man up and let people say whatever stupid shiat they want.
 
2014-04-29 09:42:14 AM  
Man up and don't be a pussy, Duke University. Oh.. Too late.
 
2014-04-29 09:42:42 AM  
Is "woman up" still ok?
 
2014-04-29 09:42:56 AM  
Being told "this is bad" is not the same as threatening punishment.  Students retain their freedom of speech, and are a bit more informed about inherently sexist language.  The only people annoyed are sexists, annoyed at their loss of social power.
 
2014-04-29 09:43:24 AM  
if you're offended by being told to "man up"... perhaps you need to man up.
 
2014-04-29 09:45:01 AM  
That's retarded

You can say "woman up" but not "man up". The sexists are gaining social power, not losing it.

Jesus showed us all what real manning up is about.

I never quite understood why being called a pussy is a bad thing while someone is said to have balls if they do something danderous and brave. It is my understanding that the balls are a mans weak spot. Kick a guy in the balls and he's down for the count. The average pussy on the other hand can take quite a pounding and beg for more!

Must make taking your car to the mechanic an awkward situation.

Also, if you're offended at the suggestion you shouldn't use the phrase "man up," you need to man up, which is quite the conundrum.

I'm having a harder time deciding who is more ridiculous, the people running this campaign or anyone who actually uses the phrase "that is so gay".

They prefer to be called "transmissions"!

Note to Duke University,
Please include; "Quit being a dick and dickhead too"
Thank you

What do you have against 1890's socialites?

Balls is positive but being a "dick" is negative. Pussy is negative but "that's tits!" is positive. See, it all evens out. Everything is totally equal. Of course Duke is making it unequal by not including "dick" as derogatory. I'm just making that observation--I'm not complaining about it because I'm not a pussy.

Douchebags.

Well, now that all the world's other problems are all solved, we need to make sure everyone carefully chooses their words so that no one is offended or, you know, just feels uncomfortable to five seconds. Thinner skin is the best skin after all.

Now give everyone an award just for showing up!

It is derogatory slang.
 
2014-04-29 09:58:19 AM  
One of the best insults I've heard recently was in a recent trailer for an Arnold Schwarzenegger film: You punch like a vegetarian.

No, that one's appropriate: they're acidic and harmful to women.

And they wonder why we always called them Dookies. Wel, not always. Just mostly. I even had a professor who suggested that maybe the E wasn't silent.

Wow. Those administrators are being really Bossy.

They must be a bunch of misogynists.

There was a similar campaign in San Francisco a few years back.. Posters like these on bus stops etc. I hate them. I'm bery liberal, and agree with some of these posters actually, but forced PC is scary. Nobody should be telling other people what they are allowed to say. Go ahead and shame people for saying "tranny" after the fact - I think that works better.

I have to give conservatives a pointvin this issue.

New favorite. I live in Durham so I get to experience how all these Dukies drive. I'll be yoinking that term.

Because using shame as a motivator worked so well for religion, it should be used for a progressive movement as well?

So in other words, don't be a pussy and man up!

and by Manning Up, I mean where you're not being a pussy, but you sure would like some.
 
2014-04-29 10:41:14 AM  
I'm confused. Are insults that imply women are inferior not derogatory to women? Or is it just that being derogatory to women isn't a big deal?

Oh for the love of Pete. I tell my son not to be bossy all the time. These people think 'little boys' are celebrated for their assertiveness?

"Ok son, you can have cookies for dinner, but only because your assertive tantrum didn't include the word please, you little alpha-dog you. Have another one, champ! Give me hell!"

Something akin to that.

I was thinking more along the lines of "Ignore the idiots using phrases and words you don't like, and act like a well adjusted adult instead of believing everyone has to be sensitive about whatever issues you have".

My take exactly. "Natural leadership qualities" and "Being a dick" are not synonymous, regardless of gender.

What did Jesus do when they sentenced him to die?
Did he try to run away? Did he just break down and cry?
No, Jesus dug down deep, knowing what he had to do
When faced with his own death, Jesus knew that he had to ...

"It's a beautiful thing, the destruction of words. Of course the great wastage is in the verbs and adjectives, but there are hundreds of nouns that can be got rid of as well."

2014-04-29 10:55:13 AM  
So it's OK to say "Stop being such a fancy-lad"?   Can I still call people I don't like "son of a milkless whore"?

Is it OK if we call them their preferred nomenclature, but we imbue it with the same meaning as the forbidden ones?  Because I have a feeling this is going to be another "dummy/retard/special" progression.

You're on Fark, where assertiveness and self confidence = Being a dick.

The latter. Just like dickhead, tool, prick, bastard, and scumbag aren't a big deal. If gendered insults are a "big deal" for you then you have it pretty good in life.

/has it good in life

Asking you to think about words before you use them is a far cry from "forced PC."
