• How This College Professor Punishes Students for Using ‘Illegal Alien,’ ‘Male,’ And ‘Female’

    The PC Police, who have been working in overdrive seemingly sinse the election of America’s first mixed-race president.

    And in the wake of a reenergized national debate about America’s tattered immigration system, some buzzwords that are unpleasant for some to hear have been thrown around more often.

    And let us not forget the left’s ever-present war against biology and nature as they desperately attempt to do away with words like “boy” and “girl.”

    So this latest effort from the liberal speech police is really not all that surprising:

    From Campus Reform:

    Multiple professors at Washington State University have explicitly told students their grades will suffer if they use terms such as “illegal alien,” “male,” and “female,” or if they fail to “defer” to non-white students.

    According to the syllabus for Selena Lester Breikss’ “Women & Popular Culture” class, students risk a failing grade if they use any common descriptors that Breikss considers “oppressive and hateful language.”

    The punishment for repeatedly using the banned words, Breikss warns, includes “but [is] not limited to removal from the class without attendance or participation points, failure of the assignment, and— in extreme cases— failure for the semester.”

    Breikss is not the only WSU faculty member implementing such policies.

    Much like in Selena Breikss’s classroom, students taking Professor Rebecca Fowler’s “ Introduction to Comparative Ethnic Studies” course will see their grades suffer if they use the term “illegal alien” in their assigned writing.

    According to her syllabus, students will lose one point every time they use the words “illegal alien” or “illegals” rather than the preferred terms of “‘undocumented’ migrants/immigrants/persons.” Throughout the course, Fowler says, students will “come to recognize how white privilege functions in everyday social structures and institutions.”

    In an email to Campus Reform, Fowler complained that “the term ‘illegal alien’ has permeated dominant discourses that circulate in the news to the extent that our society has come to associate ALL unauthorized border crossings with those immigrants originating from countries south of our border (and not with Asian immigrants, for example, many of whom are also in the country without legal documents and make up a considerable portion of undocumented immigrants living in the country).”

    “The socio-legal production of migrant illegality works to systematically dehumanize and exploit these brown bodies for their labor,” Fowler continued.

    And there you have it, America. We are so screwed. And soon, crying for help will be ruled as offensive to babies.
