Hold on tight. You’re about to read about the most ridiculous display of political correctness the world has ever known.
The University of North Carolina has issued warnings to their employees to not utter certain “microagressions.”
For the uninitiated, the slang dictionary defines “microagressions” as brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioral, or environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative racial slights and insults.
The UNC guidebook warns employees against organizing vacations around Christian holidays because doing so would “further minimize non-Christian rituals and observances.”
It doesn’t prohibit vacationing in the name of any other religion. Just Christianity. John 15:18-19.
The UNC crazy book, er I mean “guidebook,” warns employees to never compliment a woman on her appearance. They specifically order staff to never say, “I love your shoes!” The PC crowd at the university says by doing so you are communicating, “I value the way you look more than your intellectual contributions.”
Had enough? Hang with me. The best (worst) is yet to come…
In today’s world apparently the most horrific sin anyone can commit is to refer to a he as him and a she as her. Screw that one up and the intolerant libs on the left will call you every name in the book.
Further, UNC is telling employees to never refer a husband/boyfriend of a female co-worker, or wife/girlfriend of a male co-worker. By doing so you are committing “gender microagression.”
I saved the best (most ridiculous) for last. The University of North Carolina warns employees against inviting others to play a round of golf because doing so “[a]ssumes employees have the financial resources/exposure to a fairly expensive and inaccessible sport.”
No sir/ma’am (not one bit sorry to be so gender specific), no matter how hard you try – you just can’t make this idiocy up. That’s why I have included the link to the story here so you can read it yourself. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/jun/26/university-of-north-carolina-saying-christmas-vaca/
I wouldn’t make it 10 minutes as an employee of UNC. I was raised to say “yes sir” and “no ma’am.” I was taught that it is polite to compliment someone, male or female, on their look. I refer to a person’s spouse according to their birth gender, and I expect the same. Nancy is my wife – not my “partner,” (or podnah – we are in Texas ya know).
BTW – your shoes look awesome! You have excellent fashion sense. I’m sure your husband tells you that all the time. If he’s free Saturday, tell him I’d like to play a round of golf with him.
Oh – and my wife and I are already looking forward to your annual Christmas party! No one knows how to throw a shindig quite like you.
God bless you. Have a great day.
