"Hey You Guys – You Can’t Say “You Guys” Anymore"

Acculturated:  On campus, political correctness has become the Santa Claus who offers no presents. It sees you when you’re sleeping. It knows when you’re awake. It’s definitely making lists and checking them twice, and you’d better be correct for correctness’ sake. Otherwise you won’t even get a lump of coal, just a letter informing you how really sorry everyone is that they had to expel you for your own good.

Yet another sense-demolishing instance of campus lunacy was reported last week in The New York Times, which informed readers that their children off at college are being sternly warned not to say “you guys” (it might make women feel excluded), not to “show surprise” if a feminine-looking woman says she is a lesbian (acting ability now being as essential as learning ability) and to be very very careful about singing along with rap lyrics, even when alone in a car.

Needless to say, everyone should be on the lookout for “white privilege” and report any suspicions along these lines to the authorities for immediate correction. Helpful re-education camps are already being set up for this purpose. (more)

Can we say "Y'all" instead? or would that be racist because it is from the South and as we know ALL Southerners are racists, descended from racist slave owners.

Perhaps we should all just not speak or look at anyone. Pretend to be deaf? Use sign language. Chip Ahoy can start up a training program for entering college students to teach them how to sign because evidently speaking is just too dangerous and traumatic for some people to deal with.

I'm gonna say "you guys" as much as possible.

It's another way of saying "you all." What is the big deal? Oh right, we mine for grievances as a pass time.

oopsy, the only safe thing would be for Chip to teach us all to speak hieroglyphic.

I doubt Hillary or the Campaign authorized this fraud on her donors, beyond it being illegal (well we know that generally does not deter a Clinton), it is so counter productive to do that--you probably lose at least 3 votes for every voter you cheat (potentially far more). But if this story has legs (which it appears to have) it shows Hillary was so incompetent she let scammers and hackers access to her donor list.

And it plays into the whole private server issue, her security clearances, her lying, her corruption and everything else.

They really have gone well beyond "1984", which I'm reading again right now. The premise of the book was once ominous and terrible, but now it's more like a promising future to hope for.

When addressing a group of men or women, I prefer to use the more common and respectful "Hey bitches".

it's really time to start assassinating these administrators of PC. A dead university admin is a good university admin.
