New Stanford Guide Says Calling US Citizens ‘American’ Is Harmful Language

Stanford University just released a guide designed to eliminate “harmful language”  from the school’s websites and computer code.

Notably, under the “imprecise language” section, the guide wants to replace the term “American” with “U.S. citizen.”

“[‘American’] often refers to people from the United States only, thereby insinuating that the US is the most important country in the Americas,” says the index, which goes on to note the region includes 42 countries between North and South America.

The guide was published Monday, but it’s part of a project launched last May known as the Elimination of Harmful Language Initiative (EHLI).

Additionally, the guide is loaded with more terms it wants to replace, ostensibly to tackle things like racism, homophobia, and ableism.

Notable terms the new index wants to replace:

  • “Immigrant” with “person who has immigrated” or “non-citizen.”
  • “Abort” with “cancel” or “end.”
  • “Child prostitute” with “child who has been trafficked.”
  • “Karen” with “demanding or entitled White woman.”
  • “Handicap parking” with “accessible parking.”
  • “Committed suicide” with “died by suicide.”
  • “Tone deaf” with “unenlightened.”
  • “Addict” with “person with a substance abuse disorder”
  • “Slave labor” with “underpaid.”

Tech billionaire Elon Musk has since called out the policy:

“Stanford disapproves of saying you’re proud to be an American? Tweeted Musk. “Whoa.”
