Default What an Absolute Cretin...

Trudeau, "corrected" a young woman for saying the word "mankind" instead of his made up "peoplekind".

How about this Justin...You use the words you want and she can use the words she wants. Talk about patronising.

There is a perfectly good gender neutral term for our species which is "Humankind" although I'm sure some 3-wavers would have a problem with that too.

I'm not sure about a gender divide, when I hear this sycophantic guff rolled out by loons like Trudeau I'm starting to think it's just sensible folk against the crazies.

ThoughtCrime is on its way. We already have HateSpeech. Perhaps ‘Opinion Misalignment’ is in the planning stage?

Mankind is a word. Peoplekind is not and never should be.

We are overrun with vacuous cretins who try to paint themselves as forward thinking heroes. Utter nonsense. Just like those morons protesting at a cafe the other day because it used images of Churchill. They were chanting “we have nothing to lose but our chains!!” as if they were on a level with the Suffragettes or Nelson Mandela.

Some people should be banned from thinking as they obviously don’t have the tools for the job!

I thought his use of the word 'we' was rather sinister. Who are the we? This dickhead, and who else?

This Canadian cuck’s virtue signalling backfired and now he’s trying to play it off as a “dumb joke”.

Indeed, Stead. It's up to us representatives of more enlightened times to update language in order to promote correct thought and speech.

Sad but true Stead

I’ve always considered myself on the ‘left.’ A life long Labour voter. Unfortunately some of these loonies are making it more than a little embarrassing to be in any way associated with Liberalism or the left. Debate on many subjects is being systematically shut down in favour of an obsession with not offending anyone (as if this consideration trumps every other.) These people spend their whole lives being petrified of not being seen how they wish to be seen (boo-hoo I can’t debate religion or immigration in case I get called a racist by some self-righteous Vegetable!) I don’t know a single women who is in any way bothered about the use of a word like ‘mankind.’ They’re more interested in things like getting paid the same as men for doing the same job. You know...real things...important things. It’s becoming a caricature. Real issues; life threateningly serious issues are all but abandoned in favour of thinking up stupid words and phrases that will achieve nothing.
A while ago I got into a bit of a debate with a couple of young trendy ‘modern’ liberal types who said that I should join them in apologising for slavery! Symbolic nonsense! I simply said that slavery was an utter stain on humanity that needs to be wiped out forever.... but I won’t take responsibility for the 19th Century slave trade because it wasn’t my fault! It would achieve nothing. It would be like apologising to women for the Whitechapel Murders. Pathetic, pointless self-flagellation also achieves nothing! I’m not angry about this at all though

Dealing with real issues and making real changes for the benefit of all wont come by inventing words and phrases or keeping schtum on certain subjects because some pathologically hyper-sensitive people might end up being offended and require therapy (or they might seek revenge more like.)
