Newspeak Dictionary Update: Bonus Hole

The ruling class has been waging war on biology in the name of gender psychosis. This requires new terminology regarding physical anatomy. To demonstrate adulation of transsexuals, vaginas will henceforth be referred to as “bonus holes,” in accordance with a politically compliant glossary for healthcare professionals:

Female rights campaigners today rounded on the alternative glossary, branding it both “misogynistic” and “utterly dehumanizing”.

It is featured on charitable organisation Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust on a page for health professionals who are treating patients who have the disease.

Fortunately for women who feel degraded by the phrase “bonus hole,” our rulers can be flexible. They offer an alternate term:

The page also features a suggestion that the vagina might also be referred to as a “front hole”.

As Conservatives for Women founder Caroline Ffiske explains, the point is not merely to degrade real women, but to encourage people to hate their own bodies:

“To my mind it is grooming: create the unease, the disassociation, the alienation, and then when you have done that, you step in with euphoric rhetoric about ‘trans joy’.

“Fill the void you have created. Of course those doing this will not be around to pick up the pieces when young bodies are irreversibly damaged and young lives destroyed.”

Don’t you dare not use the new terminology:

The glossary says it was created with the help of the LGBT Foundation.

Its adds that using the wrong terms if a person does not use them can lead to them feeling hurt or distressed.

Providing LGBT crybullies with a pretext to feel hurt or distressed is thoughtcrime of the first order. Soon it will literally be a felony in Michigan. So update your Newspeak Dictionary at once.

Newspeak Dictionary Updates from UNC

Words that are acceptable one day are strictly forbidden the next, so to avoid cancelation as a thought criminal, you must diligently keep abreast of updates to the Newspeak Dictionary. The leftist martinets running the University of North Carolina have more:

Carolina is committed to creating an inclusive and equitable learning environment for every Tar Heel. To fully represent the diversity of our students, faculty, staff and everyone in our community, it is important to use language that supports these values. This inclusive language guide can act as a starting point for communicating in a way that supports a diverse and welcoming community.

Not even UNC is diverse enough to welcome those who do not conform to rigid speech restrictions in obeisance to official ideology.

Newly banned words include “man,” “mankind,” “he,” and “man-made.” This reflects not only the liberal hatred of all things masculine but also the greater war on biological reality, so terms that acknowledge the existence of women are also forbidden (“she,” “stewardess”). “Mother” and “father” are to be replaced by “guardian.”

Calling bums “homeless” is no longer sufficiently politically correct. Now they must be referred to as “people experiencing homelessness” or “people who are homeless.” This is based on the principle that the more syllables you waste, the more reverence you are expressing, which is why we must say “African American” rather than the more accurate term “Negro.” Be advised that we are no longer allowed to use “nonparallel designations.” “African Americans and Whites,” must be replaced by “African Americans and European Americans.”

“Transgender” is no longer an acceptable term for “cross-dressing weirdo.” Replacement options are “gender-nonconforming,” “gender queer,” “nonbinary,” “gender-expansive,” “agender,” and “Two-Spirit.”

You must always use preferred pronouns. However, you must not refer to them as “preferred pronouns,” because that “implies a choice about gender.” Men who chose to pretend to be women were born that way, according to progressive doctrine.

Keep in mind that even an accidental violation of woke language restrictions may be viewed as defiance. Those who defy liberal dictates are racists, homophobes, transphobes, and Threats to Our Democracy. In Michigan, using words that members of the LGBT community regard as defiant will soon be punishable by actual imprisonment.

“Gynosexual” Added to Newspeak Dictionary

It may now be possible for white guys to achieve privilege without the humiliation of proclaiming themselves to be perverts, thanks to the ongoing expansion of LGBTQIAetc and a recent update to the Newspeak Dictionary:

People who are attracted to women or femininity may be “gynosexual,” according to an article published in Men’s Health magazine last month.

“The number of terms and identities under the LGBTQ+ umbrella is ever-growing, allowing more and more people to describe their sexuality with words that make sense to them,” the article began. “One word you may not have heard that is helping some people express who they are is ‘gynosexual.’”

Liberals stridently preach the value of inclusion, so they shouldn’t mind adding a second G for “gynosexual.” This would include in the Alphabet Mafia normal men whose sexual proclivities are not diseased.

Freelancer and sex educator Suzannah Weiss, who authored the piece, quoted sex educator Lilith Fox as saying the term refers to those who are “sexually attracted to the gender identity of the femme-presenting person they are attracted to.”

Translated out of pretentious Liberalese, the gobbledygook means “women.”

The actual purpose of saying “gynosexual” instead of “normal” is to portray health as just another disease among many.

Johns Hopkins Erases Women

Liberals cannot define what a woman is because according to their current dogma there can be no such creature. Consequently, the liberal establishment is erasing them:

The prestigious Johns Hopkins University has erased the word ‘women’ from a newly produced ‘inclusive language guide’ in its definition of the term ‘lesbian’.

The Baltimore-based university is known for its excellence in education and research, particularly in the field of medicine and recognized as one of the top medical institutions in the world.

It remains to be seen how long this reputation can be maintained by an institution that denies biological reality at a level so fundamental as to be understood by infants.

[T]he current definition of ‘lesbian’ describes it as ‘a non-man attracted to non-men’.

This is on the level:

Where once there were women, now there are “non-men.” Update your Newspeak Dictionary accordingly.

Broadcaster Fired Over Newspeak Dictionary Transgression

It isn’t easy to find racism against blacks in a society where the ultimate faux pas is to fail to show sufficient reverence for them. Fortunately for the thought police, new crimes against political correctness can always be invented through modification of the Newspeak Dictionary and through punishment of accidental infractions. For example:

Oakland A’s broadcaster Glen Kuiper was let go by NBC Sports California after using a racial slur during a telecast while describing a trip to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum.

Kuiper uttered the forbidden N-word. No, not that N-word. The other one: “Negro.” For reasons that have never been made clear, this word is no longer permissible, possibly not even while discussing the United Negro College Fund or the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum. Kuiper compounded his infraction by mispronouncing the word.

“Following an internal review, the decision has been made for NBC Sports California to end its relationship with Glen Kuiper, effective immediately,” the network said in a statement Monday. “We thank Glen for his dedication to Bay Area baseball over the years.”

The thanks he gets is a shoeprint on the seat of his pants because a word came out of his mouth the wrong way.

Meanwhile, down the Left Coast, the thanks Christian fans get is to see perverts revered for ridiculing their faith. Offend people all you want in leftist realms like profession sports; just don’t accidently offend those who are “oppressed.”

Henry Louis Gates Helps Revise Newspeak Dictionary

Normally, revisions to the Newspeak Dictionary consist of deletions, as our ruling class constricts the realm of permissible thought by restricting our vocabulary. However, new words can be added when it serves liberal purposes — for example, by asserting Afrocentrism.

The New York Times effuses that new words include “bussin” and “boo”:

Those were two of the first 100 words that the Oxford University Press said it had prepared to include in the Oxford Dictionary of African American English, the hopeful result of the three-year research project announced last spring.

The researchers say they aim to publish a first batch of 1,000 definitions — some words and phrases will have more than one — by March 2025. But the more important goal of the project, which will be edited by Henry Louis Gates Jr., a scholar of African American history at Harvard University, is to underscore the significance of African American English and to create a resource for future research into Black speech, history and culture.

If the name rings a bell, Gates is the insufferable Harvard professor who contrived a racial incident by behaving like a spoilt child when the police temporarily prevented him from breaking into his own house, having no way of knowing he was the owner. Fellow race-baiter Barack Obama exploited the incident to stage the farcical Beer Summit, at which black members of our liberal ruling class held their noses and pretended to tolerate the sort of working class white guy who becomes a police officer. Historical note: Obama drank Bud Light, naturally.

Rap lyrics are cited as a source of new words social engineers want to inject into English. The dictionary may warrant an NC17 rating.

Many of the listed neologisms have a connection with slavery. The idea is to make an institution that ended going on 2 centuries ago seem currently relevant so it can be exploited for political purposes.

In addition to appearing in the Oxford Dictionary of African American English, the entries will also be added to the wider word bank of the Oxford English Dictionary, Gates said. …

More than just a collection of words, Gates said, the new dictionary will serve as a record of the ways Black people have molded the English language to protect themselves and also keep a morsel of autonomy in a world that would have them have none.

Everything that isn’t about LGBTism or the global warming hoax is about the sacred oppressedness of blacks — including even the dictionary.

University of Texas Educrats Push Woke Vocabulary

Another word for “Liberalese” is “Orwellian.” When wokesters say one thing, they mean the opposite. For example, when they bark about the need to impose “inclusion,” what they mean is “exclusion.” Excluding those they hate in the name of tolerance transports progressives into a delirious ecstasy of vindictiveness. Some get so carried away that, apparently oblivious to the derisive laughter they inspire, they try to exclude the syllable “men” from the word “women.”

From the University of Texas at the moonbat foothold Austin:

The Office of Financial and Administrative Services at the university lists a glossary of terms on a webpage embedded within its “Diversity Commitment,” denoting them all as “language [that] matters.” Among the terms listed are “Wimmin,” “Womyn” and “Womxn,” which the glossary says are all alternatives to the traditional spelling of the word “Women.”

“Wimmin: A nonstandard spelling of the word ‘women’ used by feminists to avoid the word ending ‘-men,'” the University of Texas glossary of terms lays out.

The point of made-up words like “womxn” is “to get away from patriarchal language,” according to the University of Texas. Not being in favor of using such a foolish neologism is denounced in the harshest terms as “a very white thing.”

Maybe educrats are not oblivious to our laughter after all. The glossary has been deleted from UT’s Financial and Administrative Services website.

New Permissible Terms for “Boy” and “Girl”

Political correctness does not stand still. Yesterday’s obsequious compliance is today’s thoughtcrime. For example, only recently, it was the height of wokeness to use the phrase “person assigned male at birth” in place of the disfavored word “boy.” However, this term has in turn been deemed offensive. The acceptable term is now “person who produces sperm.”

The word “girl” is also regarded as transphobic. Formerly, we could avoid the righteous wrath of wokescolds by referring to girls as “persons assigned female at birth.” However, a girl is now to be called a “person who produces eggs.” Presumably this applies even to girls who are too young to produce eggs.

Educrats at the Founders Memorial School in Essex Junction, Vermont have spoken:

We will be using the following language with students:

• Person who produces sperm in place of boy, male, and assigned male at birth.

• Person who produces eggs in place of girl, female and assigned female at birth.

The instructions specifically apply to fifth graders. It is important to instill correct language early, so kids don’t grow up speaking English like their politically incorrect ancestors.

Check back soon to see what new absurdly awkward term social engineers have decided we must use. Failing to update your copy of the Newspeak Dictionary may result in cancelation.

Words Constituting Microaggressions Proliferate Explosively

Authoritarians require criminals to punish. Thought criminals are in short supply, liberal attempts to generate hatred toward preferred groups through outrageously unjust favoritism (e.g., Affirmative Action, reparations) having largely failed. So they resort to the concept of microaggressions, the list of which must constantly expand.

As usual, universities are at the vanguard of moonbattery. As reported by the New York Post, taxpayer-supported Michigan State University has issued an Inclusive Guide listing words that have been deleted from the Newspeak Dictionary and therefore constitute microaggressions.

Many of the forbidden terms apply to the War on Christmas, which has expanded to Easter. They include: merry, Christmas trees, wreaths, gifts, reindeer, bunnies, eggs (in an Easter context), and chicks.

Other forbidden terms reflect the thin skin of educrats and campus activists: crazy, insane, bonkers, nuts, loony, and lunatic.

“Terrorist” is banned, presumably because it might offend the ghost of Osama bin Laden or Audrey Hale. “Freshmen” and “upperclassmen” are no good, because students must avoid “male-centric and western father-son language.” Meanwhile, “female” made the list because it is a “pejorative term [that] reduces women to their assumed biological anatomy.” The word “America” is banned because it is “American-centric.”

MSU has plenty of company:

Other schools with similar lists include Indiana University at Bloomington, the University of Texas at Austin, Brandeis University and the University of San Francisco.

The disfavored words are not literally banned, but there might be consequences for using them.

It isn’t only students who must live in fear of committing microaggressions. From Easthampton, Massachusetts:

Superintendent finalist Vito Perrone said Friday that the School Committee rescinded its offer to hire him in executive session Thursday night, alleging that the reason was a perceived microaggression contained in an email he sent to the committee chairperson.

The committee had offered him an annual salary of $151,000/year to be an educrat. But then he deviated from permissible vocabulary when he sent an email to committee members Cynthia Kwiecinski and Suzanne Colby in which he referred to them as “ladies.”

Evidently they are not ladies, but moonbats.

According to Perrone, Kwiecinski said that using “ladies” was a microaggression and “the fact that he didn’t know that as an educator was a problem,” he said.

Respect and courtesy can now cost you a cushy job.

No matter how bad they make a situation, liberals can always make it worse still. Inevitably, Big Government will get involved, imposing fines if not prison terms for committing oppression by saying “ladies” or “Christmas tree.”

It is already a crime to call illegal immigrants “illegal immigrants” in New York City.

In France, a woman was just fined $13,000 for calling resident Emmanuel Macron “filth” in a Facebook post. That wasn’t even racist, sexist, or ableist.

Considering how fast forbidden words proliferate, fining them could represent the most promising revenue-raising opportunity for Big Government since carbon offsets — although it is less efficient than the current Democrat practice of simply printing as much money as they want and letting us pick up the tab through inflation.

Fascism and Liberalism Have Switched Meanings

Fascism used to mean absolute government. “All within the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state,” barked its Founding Father Benito Mussolini. Fools and maniacs advocate absolute government to this day. Because their ideology is based on postmodernism, they hope to achieve it by manipulating language. This is why they call themselves “liberals.” That term previously referred to advocates of individual liberty like Thomas Jefferson, who held views diametrically opposed to those of modern liberals. In the same spirit, authoritarians have redefined “fascism” to mean what “liberalism” used to mean.

A moonbat who demonstrates that she really means it by dropping the F-bomb every few words provides a Newspeak Dictionary update on the definition of “fascism”:

Today’s lecture:

“In terms of economic theory, fascism is the genuine belief that individuals are responsible for their own well-being and welfare.”

Nazis didn’t get the memo:

Adolf Eichmann viewed National Socialism and communism as “quasi-siblings,” explaining in his memoirs that he “inclined towards the left and emphasized socialist aspects every bit as much as nationalist ones.” As late as 1944, Propaganda Minister Josef Goebbels publicly celebrated “our socialism,” reminding his war-weary subjects that Germany “alone [has] the best social welfare measures.” Contrast this, he advised, with the Jews, who were the very “incarnation of capitalism.”

But now we know that personal responsibility is bad due to alleged links to white supremacism and Christianity. It is a tool of “colonization.” That’s why the freedom to own property — arguably the foundation of all individual liberty — is fascism, as surely as the desire to impose omnipotent, omnipresent government is liberalism.

AP Strikes the Word “The” From Newspeak Dictionary

According to the postmodernist concepts that comprise the foundation of modern liberalism, power is achieved through control of language. That’s why they tell us what words we can use. They started with nouns, proclaiming anodyne terms like “Negro” and “squaw” to be racist. They attacked adjectives, deforming Latino and Latina into Latinx. They demanded that we divorce pronouns from biological reality. Now they have begun to go after articles.

AP Stylebook struck the word “the” from the Newspeak Dictionary with a tweet reading,

“We recommend avoiding general and often dehumanizing ‘the’ labels such as the poor, the mentally ill, the French, the disabled, the college-educated. Instead, use wording such as people with mental illnesses. And use these descriptions only when clearly relevant.”

You would think that by declaring the word “the” to be offensive, liberals had reached the last extreme of absurdity. But their capacity for self-parody is without limit.

Now AP is apologizing to the French for referring to “the French” in their denunciation of the word “the”:

The AP official account tweeted Friday morning, “The use of ‘the French’ in this tweet by @AP was inappropriate and has caused unintended offense. An updated tweet is upcoming.”

Imagine trusting these moonbats to tell you what is going on in the world.

“Mummy” Deleted From Newspeak Dictionary

As the Newspeak Dictionary shrinks away to nothing, it becomes ever more difficult for woke social engineers to find words to be offended by on someone else’s behalf. Desperation has reduced them to erasing the word “mummy”:

They say the term is dehumanising to those who died and – of course – an unwelcome throwback to Britain’s colonial past.

The phrase now deemed politically acceptable is ‘mummified person’ or ‘mummified remains’.

The British Museum says it uses the latter phrase to emphasise to visitors that they are looking at people who once lived, while the Great North Museum: Hancock in Newcastle says that it has adopted the new terms for its mummified woman Irtyru, who dates from around 600BC, to acknowledge the history of colonial exploitation and to give her the respect she deserves.

No doubt Irtyru feels much better, now that British museums are making amends for colonial exploitation by not calling her a mummy.

The word “mummy” has been used in English since at least 1615. It takes longer to build a civilization than to destroy one. The same goes for language.

Because the word is derived from the Arabic “mummiya,” use of it is considered cultural appropriation. Ironically, Egyptian culture was largely eradicated by Arabs, which is why Egyptians speak Arabic. But the British are the guilty ones, for discovering tombs that helped us appreciate the greatness of ancient Egypt.

Scientific American Has Newspeak Dictionary Updates

Scientific American is where leftist propaganda imitates parody. Just as the World Economic Forum proclaims that we will be happy owning nothing, Scientific American assures us we like climate radicalism. With its cartoonish racialization of the Damar Hamlin injury, it jumped the shark and can no longer be considered even a kiddy version of a scientific publication. But that doesn’t mean it serves no purpose. It provides climate-related updates to the Newspeak Dictionary so as to help us avoid committing wrongspeak.

Transforming the way we talk about climate change can engage people and build the political will needed to implement policies strong enough to confront the crisis with the urgency required.

Modern leftism is founded upon postmodernism, a central tenet of which is that power is achieved through control of language. To implement this strategy, Scientific American provides a handy graphic listing politically correct terminology regarding the global warming hoax:

A key point to remember is that just as “global warming” became “climate change” to cover for when temperatures go down instead of up, “climate change” is now to give way to “climate disruption,” because too many people understand that the climate has always changed and always will, no matter how much tyranny progressives use it as a pretext to inflict.

Also, never say “natural disasters.” People who cling to wealth and freedom are to blame for all bad weather, so say “human-made disasters” instead. Because this racistly implies that sacred BIPOCs help cause bad weather, it will probably be updated to “Caucasian-made disasters.”

Further orders regarding politically expedient climate vocabulary:

Terms such as “regulate,” “restrict,” “cut,” “control” and “tax” are unpopular, especially among conservatives. Perhaps people would be more likely to support solutions described with words such as “innovation,” “entrepreneurship,” “ingenuity,” “market-based” and “competing in the global clean energy race.” The fact that the first significant U.S. climate policy is called the Inflation Reduction Act is another example of how word choice matters. The name itself helped to gain the crucial support of Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia, the swing vote. The name may also have made the legislation more appealing to the many Americans who worry about climate change but rank it below inflation and the economy on their list of priorities.

The Orwellian title convinced few that the blowout climate kookery spending bill would reduce inflation instead of making it worse. Scientific American thinks its readers are as dumb as Joe Manchin pretends to be.
