Today's word

Today's word is "cis-centrism". And we have moved one step closer to tossing the dictionary in the blender, in the name of "inclusiveness".

I love (no, I don't) this new usage of "cis". "Cis-male" means "someone who looks like a man and feels like a man and acts like a man." When I was young, this was referred to as "normal", but of course that's judgemental. It's also not inclusive. (Gasp!)

By the way, I'm not "differently abled." I'm crippled. And I believe it's better to be honest about it, with myself and everyone else.

This idiocy can't go on forever; it must eventually collapse of its own pretensions. I hope. But I'm really not sure how much longer that's going to take.

A serious and sustained treatment with ridicule would probably help cure it...

As you might expect, this particular exhibit of moronism came out of one of the grievance studies departments. If I were a hiring manager and a resume came across my desk which included a "studies" degree, it would go straight into the round file.

Not because I want to discriminate, but because it's a red flag (and honking horn and fireworks in the background) that says, "This person will be a troublemaker." They spent their college years learning that everything and everyone is being unfair to them, and learning how to make a stink about it. I don't need the headache.

I'm sure I'm not alone in this, and I'm sure that people like that have a particularly hard time finding work. Which, ironically, reinforces their educational indoctrination that the world is out to get them.
