ikanreed: 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.
The_Original_Roxtar: if you're offended by being told to "man up"... perhaps you need to man up.
gnosis301: The_Original_Roxtar: if you're offended by being told to "man up"... perhaps you need to man up.Jesus showed us all what real manning up is about.
thamike: Must make taking your car to the mechanic an awkward situation.

The only people annoyed are sexists, annoyed at their loss of social power.You can say "woman up" but not "man up". The sexists are gaining social power, not losing it.
Copperbelly watersnake: 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".
Brick-House: 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!
Whatchoo Talkinbout: Douchebags.
Splish: 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.
Trail of Dead: Go ahead and shame people for saying "transformer" after the fact - I think that works better.
Capo Del Bandito: Jesus Christ people. Get some thicker skin and stop the simpering like an overbeaten cur.
Pangea: Wow. Those administrators are being really Bossy.They must be a bunch of misogynists.http://banbossy.com/
Brick-House: 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.
Fafai: Pangea: Wow. Those administrators are being really Bossy.They must be a bunch of misogynists.http://banbossy.com/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!"
Pangea: My take exactly. "Natural leadership qualities" and "Being a dick" are not synonymous, regardless of gender.
Mithiwithi: 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?
Trail of Dead: 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 "transformer" after the fact - I think that works better.youarenothelping.jpgI have to give conservatives a pointvin this issue.
