Proper English Grammar Is Racist And Oppressive, According To “Everyday Feminism.”

This is a very interesting story:

I have no idea how I missed this before, but I did, and I’m kinda
wishing now that a clever and competent reader hadn’t put it on our FB
page, because I read it, and now my head hurts from all of the
ridiculousness in this article. 

It’s written by an English teacher, and it’s about grammar and how oppressive and racist
it can be.  No joke.  And because it’s written by someone who
ostensibly cares a great deal about correct syntax and proper sentence
construction, it’s written really well.  Unfortunately, it just says a
lot of really really really ridiculous stuff.

I also came across with this article: https://motivatedgrammar.wordpress.com/2013/12/05/the-seductive-fear-that-youre-using-words-wrong/
