IT’S HARD TO KEEP UP
IN THIS IDEOLOGICAL AGE
There’s a fundamental law of blogging: that the day after you post something, you’ll come across a news item or an interesting situation that’s relevant to your topic and would have been great to mention.
And so it was with Saturday’s commentary on political correctness.
I would love to have included a note about how the University of Tennessee is promoting use of gender-neutral pronouns, as opposed to the standard male/female designations: he, she, him, her, his, hers.
UT, which touts itself as the “Big Orange with Big Ideas,” has undertaken these linguistic adjustments with the goal of making its campus “welcoming and inclusive for all.”
So, you ask, what’s unwelcoming or non-inclusive about he, she and the rest?
