University bans phrases such as 'mankind' and 'gentleman's agreement' in favour of gender-neutral terms

University bans phrases such as 'mankind' and 'gentleman's agreement' in favour of gender-neutral terms --Academics have criticised the ban as an 'insulting attack on free speech' | 03 March 2017 | A UK university has been accused of censoring free speech for banning phrases such as "forefathers" and "sportsmanship" in favour of more inclusive, gender neutral language. Cardiff Metropolitan University's revised code of practice states more appropriate terms should be used where possible, adding that students should not allow their "cultural background" to affect their choice of words on campus... Students and staff could face disciplinary procedures if they fail to adhere to the language policy, but some have accused Cardiff Metropolitan of restricting their free speech, labelling the policy an “insulting” attempt to dictate their choice of words.
