Every one has probably heard “Sticks and stone will break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” It’s not always that simple. Words can hurt some one. Watching what you say could mean the difference between life and death, the beginning or end of a friendship, and many other things. Using inclusive language, or language that doesn’t make some one feel singled out is very important now, while you are in college, and later when you have a job and are trying to move up in the work place. I challenge you to use inclusive and polite language for the rest of the semester, and also help others find different words to use.
