“UW-River Falls Launches Campaign to Ban ‘Oppressive’ Words Like ‘You Guys’ and ‘Crazy’”

“The University of Wisconsin-River Falls has launched a new campaign to warn students who use potentially offensive language to “check themselves.” The “Check Yourself Educational Campaign” has set up a list of terms it has deemed problematic, including “ugly,” “crazy,” and “bitch.”

While many of the words listed on within the list are run-of-the-mill racial slurs or derogatory terms like “c*nt” and “f*ggot,” colloquialisms like “you guys” are also deemed verboten.”
