It must be getting so hard to find new things in the world to cancel in the name of political correctness these days. Frankly it’s at the point now they should just cancel EVERYTHING and be done with it. But the latest example of racist bigotry and white meanness according to a Canadian college professor is….. (drum roll please)… the use of capital letters.
This super smart and VERY woke lady is called, Dr Linda Manyguns, PhD, and is Associate Vice President of Indigenization and Decolonization at Mount Royal University in Calgary.
Despite the very cool name, she is INSANE.
Indigenous people have been actively engaged in a multidimensional struggle for equality, since time immemorial. we strive for historical-cultural recognition and acknowledgment of colonial oppression that persistently devalues the diversity of our unique cultural heritages.
Don’t bother calling my copy editor. It is by design that the only word she will capitalize is “indigenous.”
the goal of equity, diversity and inclusion of all people is synonymous with the interests of Indigenous people. we support and expand the goal of equality and inclusion to all forms of life and all people. we … reject the symbols of hierarchy wherever they are found and do not use capital letters except to acknowledge the Indigenous struggle for recognition.
Please note that despite her rejection of hierarchy, she is in fact promoting a linguistic hierarchy whereby the word “indigenous” has higher status than any other word. Just sayin’….
No doubt this insane person who fails to present written English properly brings in a healthy six figures from the taxpayer-subsidized education establishment, which pays her to crow about how oppressed she imagines herself to be.
And look she’s so proud of herself she had the school Tweet it out. And one response from @RationalMale made another great point……
