‘Freshman’ is too gender-based for Yale. Now, they’re officially ‘first year.’

Yale Snowflakes

For the sake of “greater gender inclusivity,” Yale University is ditching the words “freshman” and “upperclassman.” For the sake of sanity, I’ll officially declare I’m sick of the unnecessary changes being made at indoctrination centers, better known as colleges.

In the whole scheme of things, this isn’t a big deal. It’s all about homogenization. If we can prevent everyone from being offended by making sure inclusivity is the highest ethic to consider in all of our decisions, then we’re sure to make things better for everyone, right? If you even had to think about that question for a moment before answering “no,” you should probably be reading Slate or some other leftist publication instead of one of my articles.

We are creating a generation that is being trained how not to handle real-life situations. It’s almost as if the Dystonian world of Atlas Shrugged is somehow making its way into reality. Things change. I get that. These changes are ridiculous. We cannot continue to turn the future primary contributors in this nation into fragile snowflakes.

Okay, rant over. Let’s see what others are saying:

Emory University nixed “freshman” in 2015 and the University of North Carolina did the same in 2009. Several other colleges, such as Cornell University, Columbia University, Dartmouth College, and the University of Virginia also use “first-year.”

POLL: 75 percent of Yale professors identify as liberal | Anthony Gockowski, Campus Reform

Final Thoughts

Imagine a world where we could go to school and not have to deal with this level of weakness. At the end of the day, that’s exactly what it is. We are building a future filled with weakness where people need something to offend them just to have a reason to wake up in the morning. When that’s the case, eventually they’ll stop even trying.
