Mount Holyoke College, an all-women's school, is asking professors to avoid calling students "women" or otherwise referring to "the two genders."

The Supporting Trans and Non-Binary Students guide was created by officials at the college, which touts its legacy as an all-women's college, in an effort to promote a "gender neutral" classroom environment.

"When discussing the student body, say 'Mount Holyoke students' rather than 'Mount Holyoke women,'" it instructs professors. "Avoid making statements like 'We're all women here...', or referring to '...the two genders...'"

The guide claims that "many students spend the first day of class braced against various types of disrespect," such as "professors who mispronounce their names, call them by the wrong name entirely, misgender them, and so on."

To avoid accidentally insulting students, the guide instructs faculty members to avoid calling names from attendance rosters and instead invite students to introduce themselves during class.

Establishing "mutual trust" is crucial for professors to accomplish as soon as possible, preferably during the first day of class, the guide explains, stating that "students who are worried about not being treated with respect can't concentrate on what we're [professors] saying."
Quote:

The college also released a companion guide on "Intersectionality in the Classroom," which encourages professors to take an "intersectional approach" in the classroom by "becoming aware of the multiple forms of oppression and privilege each individual faces and how they interact with one another."


For example, "two transgender students from different class or racial backgrounds are going to have different perspectives and life experiences, even though they have one identity in common."

Another new guide put out by the Massachusetts college on "Inclusive Teaching" warns professors that their classrooms "are never neutral spaces and are marked by the same inequalities, exclusion, and power struggles that exist elsewhere in the world."

"The point is not to claim a privileged space for the classroom that is somehow exempt from those dynamics, but to work to eliminate them where we can, confront them honestly when we cannot, and find ways to listen and include all our students in equitable, just ways," it concludes.
Make sure you identify all forms of oppression and privilege so an all inclusive safe-space is created.

Quote:

All three guides were created by the Mount Holyoke College Teaching and Learning Initiative, which strives to serve as a resource for professors to become better teachers.

Campus Reform reached out to the school for comment, but did not receive a response in time for publication.
The daily dose of BSC liberalism needs to be displayed and ridiculed everyday. Only when people will feel so much embarrassment that this nonsense can be destroyed.

Wait - It's against policy to call a woman a woman at an all-women's school?

Wait - there are "trans" people at an all-women's school?

Someone is gonna have to explain to me what the actual fvuk an all-women's school is. I'll hang up and listen.

Indoctrination. Both overt and subtle over a period of years.

Serious answer too. It really is as simple as that. I know indoctrination is a charged word with heavy connotations but it is what it is.

I've seen some crazy, nonsensical stuff on this board, but this one takes the cake. How do these leftist even come up with this garbage? They must sit in a room and try to out virtue signal each other to the point of absolute lunacy. But hey, these "students" will graduate with their liberal arts degrees and feel good about themselves. Until they try to find a job in the real world. Then they're in for a rude awakening.

Why would you want too. I am sure the "talent" levels have to be horrendous.

Hmmm... How about these professors establish the proper professor-student relationship by telling the students to STFU, read the syllabus, get something to take notes with, and try to keep up?

Seriously, who is teaching who in these liberal ****holes anyways?

So they're coming in with bad attitudes of spoiled children and the administration wants to make sure they don't learn to grow up. Good plan.

To make them go through all the legal trouble and machinations necessary to admit you. Then decide you would rather go somewhere else.

The first day of each semester must have been all kinds of terrible for the Indian students I went to grad school with (probably 2/3 of the department). You'd have Dr Peters who was from Arkansas calling names from A&M's roster sheet which was capped at something like 31 characters between 1st and last name, and between his pronunciation and the part where he isn't even saying their entire name to begin with he'd end up doing a show of hands to see who wasn't been called and it would be about half the class. He'd just give up and tell everyone who didn't hear their name to come down and make a mark on the roster so he could tell wasn't there.

Oh please!! These fragile women would crawl up in a ball on the floor if some professor said "You there, young human, please introduce yourself to all the strangers sitting around you."

I mean that's like way worse than a micro-aggression, or whatever the f/ck these pu$$ies are calling normal interaction that might make you the slightest bit uncomfortable.
