Joe Biden is once again pushing partisan, woke foolishness ahead of actual science and causing America to fall behind the world in scientific expertise, this time by replacing real scientific terms with new, woke, nonsense words.
A federal agency called the National Institute of Standards and Technology is supposed to exist to help America’s scientific community to stay technologically ahead of rivals like China. But instead of worrying about science, Biden’s admin. is more worried about forcing woke terminology on science instead of working to develop our scientific discoveries.
Per Just the News:
The guidance, for example, tells federal employees not to use the words “blacklist” or “whitelist” because of the racial connotations and also cautions against “using terms that assign a gender to inanimate objects, such as male/female connectors.”
Come on. Seriously?
The NIST is one of many federal agencies putting its attention and taxpayer funds into these efforts as it struggles to keep pace with its key mission. The NIST sparked controversy for its “Inclusive Language Guidance,” which tells scientists which words or phrases they can or cannot use in reports.
From the document:
– Consider that biased terms, such as blacklist/whitelist, also may introduce comprehension issues.
– Avoid terms such as master/slave that perpetuate negative stereotypes or unequal power relationships.
– Avoid identifying an individual’s gender unless necessary for comprehension, or using terms that assign a gender to inanimate objects, such as male/female connectors.
– Avoid descriptive terms that are condescending or reductive in favor of language that the groups being described would prefer.
“Use of inclusive language helps to avoid potential gaps in understanding that could arise from the use of colloquial or idiomatic expressions that are rooted in particular historical events or regional dialects,” said Jennifer Huergo, a spokesperson for NIST.
This is all meaningless garbage that is placing the Democrat Party’s slobbering fealty to the radical trans/LGBTQ agenda ahead of keeping America technologically superior to the one country that has promised to destroy us.
