UW Tacoma Writing Center: Grammar Is Racist

I have refused employment to more than one person because they were capable of speaking proper English but too lazy to do so.

    When everything is racist the term has lost its meaning – and its sting. The same goes for sexism, homophobia, and islamophobia. The last two are mischaracterized as phobias or fears. But, then, the act of calling someone you simply disagree with homophobic or islamophobic is a mischaracterization.

    Those are powerful reasons for ignoring anyone who uses those terms to try to subdue you.

    If you look in the modern dictionary, they have added the word “hate” as a definition for phobia…but only for homophobia and islamophobia.

    The word phobia, however, has not changed. Curious, no mention of hate.

    a persistent, irrational fear of a specific object, activity, or situation that leads to a compelling desire to avoid it
