Professorer på Cambridge Universitet skal ophøre med at bruge ordet “geni” fordi det er kvindeundertrykkende!

University of Cambridge history tutors have been told to refrain from using the word “genius” in class because it’s offensive towards women.

The department plans to re-write the first two years of its History degree to weed out “sexists terms” like “genius,” “brilliance” and “flair,” reports the Telegraph.

“We want to use language that is transparent,” Dr. Lucy Delap, a British history lecturer, said. “We’re rewriting our first two years of our History degree to create a wider set of paper choices, to make assessment criteria clearer, and to really try and root out the unhelpful and very vague talk of ‘genius,’ of ‘brilliance,’ of ‘flair’ which carries assumptions of gender inequality and also of class and ethnicity.”

Delap explained that since terms like “brilliance,” “genius,” and “flair” have too often been used to describe men, tutors should not use them anymore. Women may have difficulty thinking that they are “brilliant” because the word has historically been associated with men, Delap claimed.

Der er åbenbart sket en fejl. Jeg stemte sammen med gruppen, så jeg ved ikke, hvad der er sket. Jeg skal ikke gøre mig klog på, om jeg er kommet til at trykke på den forkerte (knap), siger De Radikales fhv. kulturminister.
