Unnecessary “fillers” in our speech. I’d rather have “like” than up-talking, though (if we had to choose one, that is). Ewwww, up-talking. Then again, a combination of the two would render me homicidal maniac.
Like, did you ever notice? That, like, the speech patterns people, like, think are stupid? Are, like, commonly associated with, like, women?
And, like, there’s this thing? Where, like, women aren’t supposed to be, like, assertive? So they, like, qualify their speech? Because, like, we’re not supposed to, like, stand by our opinions?
1) humiliate women so they don’t feel qualified to speak authoritatively about anything
2) humiliate women for speaking in such a way that reflects how you treat her
3) laugh, you are superior because you don’t use words like “like.” It isn’t as if being a huge stupid asshole has ever made you worse than a woman who speaks with verbal tics.
The nail. It is hit on the head.
THEY DIDN’T EVEN FUCKING SPELL ACADEMY RIGHT
Also, fuck you, ALA. Linguistics aren’t meant to be prescriptive.
They misspelled awareness too
congrats on turning an idiotic, poorly written sign made by pseudo-intellectual group of asswipes into a “feminist issue”.
the whole thing is stupid, and addressing it was stupid.
when you see shit like this, just ignore it. it doesn’t even deserve to be talked about.
