A university has banned phrases such as “right-hand man” and “gentleman’s agreement” under its code of practice on inclusive language. Cardiff Metropolitan University’s guidance dictates that “gender-neutral” terms should be used where possible, adding that students should not allow their “cultural background” to affect their choice of words.
Mike Opelka explains how that's generally how people can tell where someone came from based on their inflections and pronunciations of words. He feels that this it's crazy to seek to embrace cultural diversity by limiting language. He believes we should open up language and let society decide which language is right.
