#1 "The Americas encompass a lot more than the United States," the guide states. "There is South America, Central America, Mexico, Canada, and the Caribbean just to name a few of 42 countries in total."

Yes but only one has America as part of the name. This argument is stupid and always has been. United States of Mexico is known as Mexico, Federative Republic of Brazil is known as Brazi, United States of America is known as America. It's pretty simple really if you aren't a self-hating idiot.

#2 The root of all evil is...

Government Student loans that can not be repaid are the only things that keeps the inflated salaries of the tenured afloat. In return they overly paid academia must pump out stupid kids who believe in leftist ideology that has overtaken the federal government. You are not American, male, female, you are nothing but a slave of the masters on the left. The only thing missing are the chains.

#4 Then they'll be relieved if no more of that nasty United States of America currency makes it to their campus, I'm sure.

#5 Colorado is not inclusive enough! Must change it to something like Dip-S#!+ or Idiot or Moron. Besides Colorado is a Spanish word for red and is therefore cultural appropriation.

#8 Where's the logic of someone who's already certain they are better than me wanting to be "included" in my cohort?

#9 A lot of words serve dual purposes. Take the word dumb. It can mean unable to speak or it can mean stupid. So if I say this Inclusive Language Guide is dumb, everybody knows what I mean.

#10 You would expect academics at a major American university to understand the concept of context. It's all about the context, dumbass.

#11 Don't call it Colorado, a name given to it by the evil white Spanish invaders explorers. All Western Civ BAD! (do I need to put a /sarc on that?)

#12 Never, ever, under any circumstances, eat Eskimo Pie.

Translation of Inuit ballad:
"If ancestral wisdom be valid,
It seems that the tarts
Of more southerly parts
Are surpassingly torrid, not gelid!"
