In the upper-left corner of the nation, we are blessed with a progressive community that supports progressive language and cultural diversity. At Western specifically, we live in a liberal bubble, and we are expected by many of our peers to keep up with the wide variety of constantly evolving social phrasing. While it is a natural understanding that inclusive language should be embraced, it shouldn’t be taken as an insult if someone doesn’t utilize the proper language. These changes aren’t basic knowledge to everyone, and it’s hard to keep up.
