just another day in the world of words no longer in favor

Well, what can you say about this bit of stupidity aside from, what else might we expect from the pc left?

As for the word “daft” which I think is more Brit than American English, it’s a perfect description of anyone not quite nuts but a loon anyway. Or a bad idea. And many women are “sexy” as exemplified by super models and Hollywood leading ladies.  And why is “blonde” a word to be avoided?

And as for “naked females”, good grief.  That’s one of the natural and beautiful wonders of the world. Erm .... um .... depending on whose naked body one is lucky enuff to view. 

Take a look at this.

Modern men rein in the sexist language: Analysis finds terms like sexy or blonde have disappeared from vocabulary when women are referred to

Analysis of 2.5m spoken or written words found terms almost vanished

Demeaning terms like daft and stupid seen a sharp decline in last 20 years

While terms like ‘girly girls’ describing overly feminine qualities has risen

By Mario Ledwith for the Daily Mail

Fewer men are using sexist language to describe women, according to a study of conversational habits.

The analysis of 2.5million spoken or written words found that terms like sexy and blonde have all but vanished from our vocabulary when women are referred to.

Other demeaning terms such as daft and stupid have also seen a sharp decline over the past 20 years, as has the association between females and the word naked.

Research into the UK’s conversations reveals a significant change in social attitudes over the last 20 years.

Rather than describing women by their appearance in a misogynistic manner, new terms such as ‘girly girls’ that describe overly feminine qualities have risen in popularity.

But the findings of the research jar with suggestions from equal rights groups that sexism is becoming a more prevalent issue, fuelled by the internet.

Campaigners suggest that sexist attitudes have become prevalent on social networks and that a new form of sexism is manifesting itself on Britain’s streets.

The Spoken British National Corpus 2014 study analysed 2.5million words of conversation, which it compared to similar studies from the 1990s.

That decade saw the rise of ‘lad culture’, the phenomenon that gave birth to ‘lads mags’ and was embodied by TV sitcoms such as Men Behaving Badly.

Tony McEnery, joint head of the study, said the research showed ‘negative descriptions of women have fallen away since the early 1990s’.

He told the Sunday Times: ‘Women are being described more in their own right and less in terms of their appearance.

McEnery said that the research was particularly insightful into the psyche of the nation as people struggle to hide their true thoughts when speaking.

here for unedited version

In the end .... misogyny and things sexist are for the most part, whatever feminazis of the left want them to be.
I am not saying those two things do not exist.
But I do not think they always exist in the places where the thought and speech police insist they do.

  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
