We teach our children from right and wrong. We try to instill respect so when they do go out in the world they are ready. What right does a college teacher have to start renaming things in class so where are young adults start cussing? Instead of having to turn in jounals they now turn in fucktards?

A student told me the teacher allowed them to pick the word(as a class) that they wanted to use. Did your child state there point of view on it and why they didn't think that word was appropriate?

Maybe it was a lesson in how we label things and no matter what the label is, the thing continues to be what it is. Is this a psychology class maybe? If so, the naming of the journal entries was a lesson.

We can label people with derogatory terms - doesn't change them from being what they are, a person just like the person labeling. Maybe the professor was trying to get that lesson across to the students?

I assume if a student did not want to use that term, they could submit their journals as *(&%tards or something else. College students are adults. They won't be damaged for life if they hear/see the infamous "f word".
