College wants to rename 'history' to 'hxstory'

From the article linked:

The list of demands ends with a lengthy denunciation of WWU’s marginalization of “hxstorically oppressed students.” The misspelling is intentional: “hxstory,” I presume, was judged to be more PC than “history,” which is gendered, triggering, and perhaps violent. It’s easy for me to laugh at these clumsy attempts to make language obey the dictates of political correctness—but I laugh from a position of relative safety, since I am not a WWU professor.


What the hell?

I hope this writer is wrong, because if those students actually think that 'history' is tied etymologically to gender (his), then they are utter imbeciles and half-illiterates.

Or maybe they should also call for renaming Hermes, I mean it obviously was a hate crime against his femininity. Hxmes it is. :lol:

Absolutely ludicrous. :roll:

Fortunately, my school doesn't have to deal with radical SJWs who misunderstand their own movement, but I pity the faculty members who now have to waste their own time acknowledging those students.

I think this topic belongs in Off-Topic, though. ;)
