I get annoyed whenever I hear university instructors, either in person or online, referring to their students as “kids.”

It’s disparaging. It’s dismissive. It undervalues their abilities and undercuts their views.

University students are adults. They don’t deserve to be tagged as children any more.

(Exceptions will be made for any student who is a goat.)

Unless they act like kids, which they often do, in my experience.
