Yale sounds too much like "male" so that's got to change immediately. And "uni-versity" seems like an a microaggression against "di-versity". Likewise, "English" is racist, "his-tory" is sexist, writing sounds to much like whiting.

The place should simply close so that everyone can exist in their own little bubble of politically-correct idiocy.


Indeed, closing Yale would seem to be the optimal solution.
There is no excuse for a university without a her-story department, no doubt they study dead white males all day

my own alma mater was sadly little better.
One of the highlights was a womyn's group writing a letter to the student paper and a misogynistic copy editor changing "womyn" to "wo-men".

A decision by the university earlier this year not to change the name of a college named after John C Calhoun, a 19th-century alumnus and advocate…


John Calhoun was vice president of the US, March 4, 1825 – December 28, 1832 under John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson,
and at various times, Secretary of State, Secretary of War, US Senator, and US Congressman.

Ah yes, the Rhodes statue. We don't like to mention it, but just cross over Pinochet quad, turn left by Pol Pot library, 
and it's under some tarpaulin at the bottom of Stalin staircase...
