Have any of you seen Time’s nominations for words that should be banned? As well as ‘feminist’ (!!), they’ve nominated a whole list of words that tend to be feminised, that tend to be used by youth, or which originate in the vernacular of communities of colour. Nice — by which of course I mean the opposite — demonstration of the politics of language.
In related news, I would love to have a discussion with the dev who made it so that I can’t insert a link in the WYSIWYG editor here using my tablet and instead required me to hand-code it. This is 2014!
