A university has advised staff against using the terms "mother" and "father" to avoid bias and assumption. The University of Manchester's guidance on inclusive language encourages the use of gender-neutral terms such as "parent" or "guardian" instead.
The university has denied scrapping or banning any words. The guidance, which was circulated to staff earlier this week, was created by the university's equality, diversity and inclusion team. It follows feedback from colleagues who suggested they would like more advice on which terms and language to use, the university said. The guidance recommends using gender-neutral terms, rather than those that make sex distinction such as:.
The guidance has been criticised on social media with some labelling the advice as "language policing" while others defended the move, stating that schools and universities have used terms like "parent or guardian" instead of "mother and father" for decades. A University of Manchester spokesperson said it had "simply produced a guidance document for our staff that encourages the use of more inclusive language to avoid bias or assumptions".
