University of California, Davis, has released a Glossary of terms that looks to “help students” understand life better on campus. The Glossary is being widely condemned by students, parents and the wider world of Social Media because it appears to be legally defining terms for which it has no basis nor right.
As reported in the Daily Caller:
UC Davis defines “racism” as “the systematic subordination of marginalized racial groups … by members of the agent/dominant/privileged racial group who have relatively more social power (white),” clearly indicating that only whites are capable of racism.
In the “transition” part of the glossary, the college suggests that transgender individuals can be considered as such without changing their names, legal gender, or undergoing hormone therapy or surgical operations.
The “LGBTQIA Resource Center Glossary,” also notes that different spelling of a word apparently empowers people. Mysoginistic and patriarchal spelling are clearly a major issue on campus:
Shortly after noting that “crossdresser” has replaced the “outdated and problematic” “transvestite,” the authoritative reference guide ends by explaining that “womyn/womxn” exists because “some womyn spell the word with a “y” or an “x” as a form of empowerment to move away from the “men” in the “traditional” spelling of “women.”
