http://www.campusreform.org/?ID=6770Washington State students risk a failing grade in one course if they use any common descriptors professor considers “oppressive and hateful language.”In another class, 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.”Lawful speech, censored.If a word opposes your agenda, I suppose it is "offensive". I believe the U.S. Constitution and the Word of God are also offensive to many. So many things that are "right" and "good" today are now offensive. Good is evil and evil is good, today.
Why anyone would want to take those two classes is beyond me; a person taking them will likely already be very liberal so the requirements would likely be welcome by them. I work with a guy who went to school there. I'll have to gig him about this.
This is a State school so the professors have no choice but to back the 1st Amendment. They are obligated to permit free speech (especially speech that is lawful). They could be fired if they persist. The classes do not matter. If they get away with trampling free speech in these classes, then they can do it in any class. Welcome to the USSA.
