More political correctness

June 1st: "A professor at Florida Atlantic University says she may end her 40-year membership in a professional association, Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages, because it requires people who seek to present papers at its annual meeting to sign a disclaimer promising not to “insult the rightful dignity and social equity of any individual or group.”"

From a Robin Wilson article at the Chronicles of Higher Education.

Yet, again, forcing "social justice" down everyone's throat.

Hat tip to Sara Pentz.

Sorry -- I don't have a subscription to the Chronicle of Higher Education. Did the teacher eventually end her membership?

The article didn't say! Sorry, I thought the link worked...and I can't find a copy of the article on a non-subscription site.
