New Words That Are Banned From Text Books

The New Words That Are Banned From Text Books


An eye-opening book titled The Language Police lists about 500 words that are banned from school textbooks. Some are amusing, some stupid (probably a banned word), and some are chilling. Here is a very partial list of banned words:

Founding Fathers—Banned as sexist. Replace with Founders or Framers.

Caveman—Banned as sexist, replace with cave dweller.

Disadvantaged—Banned, replace with reference to the resources or rights that are absent in an individual’s life circumstances.

Courageous—Banned as patronizing when referring to persons with disabilities.

Lunatic—Banned as offensive, replace with person with a psychiatric illness.

Soda—Banned for regional bias, replace with Coke, Pepsi.

Teenager—Banned, replace with adolescent.


Wild Thing's comment......

This is crazy and there is no way I will follow this. How are kdis supposed to grow up normal today, with all this fear of using the wron word and PC taking over so completely. God bless these kids that have to put up with this insanity.

This blog Theodore's World is still PC Free Zone and it always will be.


....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

I agree WT. This is just plain luny. How much will Geico spend to change their "So easy a caveman can do it" ads. This is too much.

The PC crowd has struck again. How do they explain sodas that aren't Coke or Pepsi? And how about all the little girls out there named Cola and Pepsi? (There are you know!) Sprite is not a cola, nor is any flavor of Minute Maid, Crush, or Sunkist sodas.
I could never be pc. And you know what? Raising a teenager is like nailing jello to a tree! Same with the PC squad. They will never learn.

THIS WHOLE SCRATCHING AND RE-INTERPRETATION OF WORDS IS ABSURD!!!!! Case in point let me tell them about courage: My infirm Mother lived courageously through all of her life-threatening disabilities = was run over by a car when she was 3 and had a lame leg, 40 years later had an eye removed due to cancer, developed a very compromising autoimmune condition called myasthenia gravis in here 70's. She was COURAGEOUS GIVEN THESE DISABILITIES. The strength and courage she displayed through these challenging issues has proven to be very inspiring for so many. And to top it off she is a Navy Vet from WW2. How dare they!!! These lefties have no idea what they are talking about, and furthermore the center of this country better wake up and fight harder SOON!!

Good lord how silly will the Left get. They are simpler than a poor teenage caveman.

Most Americans speak a lingo that may or may not be regional, age related or faddish. The government cannot control that, but obviously some think they can. Example; some Blacks are trying to keep other Blacks from saying n----r. Well we see Antonette in the tape above flaunting that word freely.

In Texas and Pennsylvania, and Michigan and every other state we call a lot of politicians assholes. Should we change that word to anal openings?

Here's 2 words you PC liberal commie jerkwads will not be changing soon............FUCK YOU!

The Kaffir's are at it again, they even have one in the white house.
Kaffir is derived from the Arabic word (Arabic: كافر) that is usually translated into English as "infidel" or "unbeliever".

Succinct cuchieddie, well stated!!!

Tom, I'm referring to politicians as Courtesan's. Male and female(indistinguishable) handmaidens of the leader.

Posted by: Jack at August 12, 2009 02:54 PM

Jack - you're giving too much class and value to the politicos by calling them courtesans. There are many more appropriate words and phrases that apply to the dingleberries that are trying to communize us. obama et al deserve the lowest forms of gutter language. One term they don't like is Liberal. They are trying to change that terminology to progressive.

Like cuchieddie said, "Fuck You" you damn Marxist Liberals!

Posted by: TomR at August 12, 2009 04:09 PM

Courtesans, eh, Sort of like nancy pelosi and Rahm Emanuelle would qualify as Courtesans of obama the Kaffir-Honkie, as the Duck said, "half-black". One's right handed and ones left handed they could play switch.

Now it all makes sense, Michelle was a marriage of convenience, with separate lives try to keep the blood line pure, well 75% anyway.

How in the hell did we get into this mess in the first place.

American is chauvinistic.

The Disadvantaged Teenager Caveman is a Courageous Soda drinking Lunatic.
Any questions?

PC I've never been, and PC I've never tried to be. Don't like it, well BITE ME! How's that for non-PC?

Posted by: Wild Thing at August 12, 2009 11:41 PM

Jack, oh wow that's right it is coming
from the Saudi's, they are the ones
dictating the textbooks. I forgot about
that and I even did a post about it.

Thank you so much.
