There's No Such Thing As Political Correctness, Declares Vox;
CUNY Grad Center Forbids Saluting People by "Mr." or "Ms." Because It's Illegal to Offend People or Something

Via Hot Air's Headlines, Vox and reality are in, as they so often are, a spot of disagreement; I wonder who shall be proven right?

[O]f all the bad responses to Jonathan Chait's recent New York magazine feature about the pernicious policing of language on the far left, none was as flatly wrong as Vox's, which claimed that "the truth about political correctness' is that it doesn't actually exist."

...

On that note, let's dig into a prime example of something that supposedly doesn't exist.

CUNY's Graduate Center now believes the use of gendered salutations like "Mr." and "Mrs." might offend some students. What's more, administrators think federal non-discrimination law requires the university to prevent its faculty from inadvertently giving offense. Therefore, professors have been instructed to wipe the contentious words from their memories and cease using them in any and all forms of communication.

It is now illegal to refer to ourselves as "Morons" and "Moronettes."

Henceforth, we must only refer to ourselves or each other by the nongendered, future-friendly "Citizen Moron."

Hail, Citizen Moron! And good tidings.
