Don’t Say ‘Man Up’ or Other Gender-Related Phrases because They’re Offensive, Chico Athletes say

From Campus Reform:

Students at California State University-Chico are being treated to an educational campaign instructing them to avoid phrases like “man up” and “like a girl.”

The school’s athletics department announced last week that it will participate in the “You Don’t Say” campaign at the behest of the Chico State Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), and has already begun hanging posters around campus admonishing students to avoid a variety of potentially-offensive words and phrases.

The posters, which are also available on the Chico State Athletics Facebook page, feature still-shots of student athletes captioned with statements such as “I don’t say ‘like a girl’ because gender has no limits” and “I don’t say ‘coward’ because you can’t judge someone else by your own standards.”
