Microsoft Word to Gauge Political Correctness

Welcome to 1984. Even your computer works for the Thought Police. Microsoft Word will advance “more concise and inclusive language” by offering to replace “policeman” with “police officer,” “congressman” with “congressperson,” and “disabled person” with “person with a disability.”

Note that all of these are less concise, not more concise. But they are more politically correct, and that is the only thing that matters in a society succumbing to soft totalitarianism.

Computing Forever’s take:

Among the many strengths of Anglophile culture is the richness of the English language. Add this to the endless list of precious things liberals want to destroy.
