“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.
