And then there’s this development:
Google has announced the launch of an “inclusive language” function to help users eliminate politically incorrect words and expressions. The feature is being introduced initially to Google’s “enterprise-level” users and will include both warnings and suggestions as part of Google’s new assisted writing features in Google Docs.
Typing in the word “landlord,” for instance, generates a warning the term “may not be inclusive to all readers” as well as the suggestion to replace the offensive locution with “property owner” or “proprietor.”
Similarly, Google takes issue with the word “mankind” and proposes substituting it with the more appropriate “humankind.” Use of “policemen” and “housewife” provokes a correction as well, and Google will urge replacing them with the gender-neutral “police officers” and “stay-at-home spouse.”
Curiously, the new software seems targeted only at a specific sort of communication infractions.
How nice. Wait till this feature turns into “obligatory” rather than just “advisory”…
My message to Google: take your wokist nonsense and stick it up your excretion aperture.
Oh, and fuck you. And your poxy email.
