    This language tells me "RUN THE OTHER WAY..!"


    We are “committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our community,” reads a statement administrators sent to Campus Reform on Monday.


    The University of North Carolina (pictured above) dropped the term “freshman” in an effort to adopt more “gender neutral language.”
    “Consistent with that commitment, gender inclusive terms (chair; first year student; upper-level student, etc.) should be used on University Documents, websites and policies,” it continues.


    It starts with the youth... Some day we will learn.

    I just hope it is not too late.
