Cardiff Metropolitan University Bans
Cardiff Metropolitan University is at the forefront of political correctness sensitivity. The University Bans Lecturers from Using any Sexist or Insensitive Words. The list of banned words is wider than you might think. Here are some examples: mankind, homosexual, housewife, manmade, and sportsmanship.
And please, try to avoid words like “mother” and “father” unless you can say “mother and father” together. Yes, the article states that.
Gee, is there an order for this? Yes, there is. It better be random. Always saying mother first could get you in trouble. The article did not say but the phrase “ladies and gentlemen” clearly has to go.
According to the guide, Mrs. and Miss are considered offensive. Clearly, it’s best to avoid gender-identifying terms altogether.
What happens When these culturally-trained “snowflakes” hit the real world outside of their safe-space university?
Hmm. Am I allowed to use the word “snowflake” like that? Apologies offered for my unsportspersonslike conduct.

It’s now best person – rather than man – for the job at Cardiff Metropolitan University, provided they’re efficient (but not workmanlike)
A university has banned phrases that it considers sexist and out-of-date including “best man for the job” and “gentleman’s agreement”.
In its Code of Practice on using Inclusive Language Cardiff Metropolitan University outlines the need to “promote an atmosphere in which all students and staff feel valued”.
The document includes a checklist of terms that staff and students should be wary of using.
These are the terms which should be avoided and their suggested synonyms
Best man for the job – Best person for the job
