Purdue University is Banning Words with “Man” in Them


A widely-used online writing and grammar resource by Purdue University is encouraging students to avoid ‘generic use of MAN and other words with masculine markers.’

No more using the words “mailman”, “postman”, “mankind”, “Manchester”, “man-made”, “Manhattan”, “batman, “superman”, “boogeyman”, “businessman”, “cameraman”, “woman”, “human”, “romance”, and the list goes on.

All set to be banned because of the ‘feelz’ of a looney few.
