(Editor’s note: Opinion pieces are posted for discussion purposes only.)

So (and we will get back to that word in a minute), 2015 became the year in which U.S. university campuses went mad with political correctness. Students accused professors of “microagressions,” slights so subtle only the victims could identify, or feel, them. At Christmas, Cornell issued a list of discouraged “holiday” objects, which somehow included mistletoe.

Thus, we are pleased to associate ourselves with one university’s list of forbidden things. It is Lake Superior State University’s 41st annual list of “Banished Words.”
