#3 BRANDEIS EXPANDS LIST OF WORDS, PHRASES TO AVOID USING
A newly expanded list of language to avoid using at one ultra-woke college now warns against joking about obsessive-compulsive disorder — unless you’ve actually been diagnosed with it. More than a dozen words and phrases have been added to Brandeis University’s widely mocked compendium of “violent” and “identity-based” terminology ahead of the start of its fall semester on Thursday. But the elite Massachusetts institution’s Prevention, Advocacy & Resource Center, which compiled the list, also notes that what “may be offensive for an outsider to say might be acceptably used by a member of that group.” The additions include, “‘I’m so OCD’ (outside of actually having OCD).” The PARC’s “suggested alternative” — for those who don’t “actually” have OCD — is “I’m very organized, detailed oriented.” MORE AT https://nypost.com/2021/08/25/brandeis-university-expands-list-of-words-phrases-to-avoid-using/
