College tells students that saying ‘homosexual’ is offensive

Emerson College now considers the term “homosexual” to be an offensive reference to gay or lesbian people, deeming only the latter two terms sufficiently inclusive.

According to a series of “Guidelines for Inclusive Language” published on the Boston school’s website, students should “avoid the use of homosexual and homosexual relationship” and rather “use gay or lesbian when describing people who are attracted to members of the same sex.”

      The medical term would be “bowel troweler”.

        Good band name.

        • mobuyus

          I’d be leary of the audience such a named band might garner not to mention the unhygenic condition the venue facilities may suffer.

            Well, I went to see Skinny Puppy back in the day.

    My classic old favorite is “gearbox”…..

  • deplorabledave

    I’ve always considered it a pejorative which is why I use it.

  • Alain

    Screw them. That is the accurate term. Gay is not in the least accurate nor correct, which is why I refuse to use it.

    • mobuyus

      Gay is just too gay.

    • Editor

      Redefining words is apparently a hobby in universities nowadays.

      • Alain

        Yes, it is part of cultural marxism.

  • vwVwwVwv

    There was an nice old word for this, PEDERASTS!

  • tom_billesley

    There’s no “H” in “LGBTTIQQ2S”

  • ontario john

    Michael Coren is going to be really upset at these comments.

    • tom_billesley

      He can bugger off, the sod.

  • GrimmCreeper

    Too many freakin’ rules to memorize these days. The pattern ultimately leads to a hyphen somewhere along the way. Pole-smoking or rug-eating citizen of the world. National affiliations are so passé.

    Stupid f*ckin’ homos…

  • Tooth&Claw

    Homosexual. There, Emerson can bite me, get over yourselves. Homo = same , Hetero = Different

  • But they are homosexuals.

    Trust leftists to come up with euphemisms.

    • Alain

      You say euphemisms and I say newspeak.

  • simus1

    The marxist “in crowd” constantly makes piddly meaningless little PC tweaks and then waits in ambush to find out who hasn’t been doing their homework on time.
    Quite a life.

    • Alain

      They really have no life. It is composed of what you wrote and hate. Not a single one has ever contributed anything constructive or positive to civilisation. Like Islam they only destroy.
