That's dumb. Mankind has a will established definition. It sounding kinda like "man" doesn't change that.

I'm still waiting for the day that leftists start crying referring to "male/female adapters" in cables, plumbing, etc. is sexist and oppressive.

Something similar to this actually happened to me - three mods on this board upheld a two-week suspension and 10KL for using the 'r-word' when talking about adjusting timing on an engine.

The 'r-word' is the word that you use.

in the context of academia, avoiding gendered language has been standard practice since the 90s. an English major, where writing is a focus, should be especially wise to that sensibility. i feel like you already know this, too.

but i'm not going to act like universities aren't a hub for leftist activity and thinking.

most of the Chicago Style Guide information is behind a paywall, so I can't immediately point to that. but if you pick up a fairly recent academic text book, you're more like to see 'she' or 'humanity' instead of 'he, man' like idk if you want a literal picture of this in action

How is it not an isolated incident lol... grading is arbitrary as f*** and she only took off 1 point. I've taken off way more points for using poor variable names in programs, which is equivalent to "style" which is what she lost points for.

sounds like you cherrypicked some useless bulls*** from whichever garbage school you could scrape from google's search results lmfao

i don't think any sane person actually cares about the usage of mankind vs humanity to the point of being offended by the former

here's an MLA style guide: http://www.mlanet.org/page/mla-style-manual-names-and-terms

"NOTE: MLA’s Board of Directors approved the following motion at their 1994 post–annual meeting meeting: “MOVED, that the MLA Board of Directors adopt a policy of non-gender-specific language according to CMS14, pages 76–8 (2.98) for all of MLA’s documentation, publications, and communications, effective June 1, 1994.”"

No, I think it's hilarious. Especially since there is usually a disclaimer at the beginning saying something like "the use of 'he' and 'she' is randomized throughout this casebook"

it's totally not random lol.

Fair enough, I did not watch the video. But s*** like this does happen at the lower level so it's not disingenuous at all had that been the case. At any rate this is still funny as nonsense happens at colleges all the time, so still lmao at schools in America.

    According to the 2000 NAEP assessments, only 32 percent of 4th graders are proficient in reading, while a dismal 26 percent are proficient in mathematics, 29 percent in science, and 18 percent in history. Proficiency rates decline by the 12th grade in most subjects. Over half of all poor students fail to reach the basic level on NAEP assessments in most subjects.[1]

    In 1998, 71 percent of students graduated on-time from high school. Just over half of minority students graduated.

    Over the past 30 years, average per-pupil expenditures for public elementary and secondary schools have nearly doubled, rising from $3,367 in 1970 to $6,584 in 2000 in constant dollars.[8]
    The average private school tuition nationwide, according to a 1996 Cato Institute study, was $3,116, with 67 percent of all private elementary and secondary schools charging $2,500 or less.[9]
    Total K-12 federal, state, and local spending for Education, both public and private, climbed to over $420 billion for the 2000-2001 school year.[10]


    Over half of all public schools reported a criminal incident to the police. Incidents ranged from fistfights, theft, or vandalism to serious violent crimes. 10 percent of schools reported serious violent crimes.[21]

    @Darkman124 But no, it's just bulls*** I spout based on political bias. Seriously yer usually better than this. Don't know why you went full s*** post and arrogant.
