Amid a nationwide movement to remove statues, symbols, and words in the name of inclusion, Campus Reform rounded up recent examples of words that have been banned on college campuses.

1. MSU eliminates the terms 'foreign' and 'alien'

Michigan State University announced it would no longer use the terms “foreign” and “alien” in order to create a more inclusive environment. In October, Provost Teresa Woodruff addressed the Associated Students of MSU general assembly to announce the new “non-pejorative” language. Woodruff stated that moving forward, international students should be referred to as “non-domestic” or “international” to help “create a culture of not us vs. them, but of each other.”

2. UPitt scraps “homecoming king” and “homecoming queen” titles

After the University of Pittsburgh’s Alumni Association called for a policy change to end the use of the terms “king” and “queen,” the university announced in October that it will no longer use the traditional titles. Vice Chancellor for Alumni Relations Nancy Merritt called the terms “antiquated” language. Instead, the school will provide a “Spirt of Pitt" award to homecoming royalty.

3. UC tells students ‘do not’ say ‘Chinese Virus' and do not allow others to say it

In March, the University of California’s Council of Chief Diversity officers released a “guidance document” regarding how to hold a “positive and inclusive” campus climate during the pandemic. The list tells students and faculty to “reject racism, sexism, xenophobia and all hateful or intolerant speech, both in person and online.” It also instructs students to not use terms such as “Chinese Virus” and to not allow the use of these terms by others.

4. UVA instructor wants to ban the term ‘student-athlete’

An instructor at the University of Virginia called to abolish the phrase “student-athlete," claiming it has "arguably racial" undertones. In an op-ed, Molly Harry defended calling the term racially charged by saying that “today, the majority of revenue-producing athletes in the sports of football and men’s basketball are Black. They are coached mostly by White men.” She also pointed out that the man who coined the term student-athlete was a White man.

5. Vanderbilt lists "sexual reassignment surgery" as an "outdated" term

In December, Vanderbilt University published a "Gender Affirmation Toolkit" for its employees in an effort to create a safe work environment. The toolkit explains how to properly use terms like "gender identity," "gender expression," and "sexual orientation.” It also listed "sexual reassignment surgery" on its list of "outdated" and "demeaning" words.

6. Leading ‘anti-racist’ prof calls the term ‘legal vote’ ‘racist’

In November, Boston University's Director of the Center for Anti-Racist Research Ibram Kendi said the phrase "legal vote" is racist. He said it is "as fictionally fraught and functionally racist as the terms 'illegal alien' and 'race neutral' and 'welfare queen' and 'handouts' and 'super predator' and 'crackbaby' and 'personal responsibility' and 'post racial."

"The misinformation of widespread voter fraud—or 'illegal voting' —in Detroit, Philadelphia, Atlanta, and Phoenix where Black and Brown voters predominate is baked into the term 'legal vote,'" Kendi added. "No matter what GOP propaganda says, there’s nothing wrong with those voters and votes."

To meet the ideological requirements of English Socialism in Oceania, the ruling English Socialist Party (Ingsoc) created Newspeak,[1]:309 a controlled language of simplified grammar and restricted vocabulary designed to limit the individual's ability to think and articulate "subversive" concepts such as personal identity, self-expression and free will.[2] Such concepts are criminalized as thoughtcrime.... Newspeak

At this rate the language will be down to 50 words by 2100.


USA! USA! USA! Bringing you democracy, or else! there were strains of VD that were incurable, and they were first found in the Philippines and then transmitted to the Korean working girls via US military. The 'incurables' we were told were first taken back to a military hospital in the Philippines to quietly die. – 4um
