That's true. I didn't mean to

That's true. I didn't mean to be so hard-on the gays, below. (Heh). It is really the PC thought police using language imperialism to denude words of any content which makes them suspect.

Husband and wife, with their connotation of different s3x roles, is a grave a offender. The word s3x itself, implying something physical and immutable, not mere social construct amenable to change through education, also had to have its meaning surgically removed, or changed.

It is is of course much easier for words to be transformed than people, but if the language can be forced into narrow channels unnaturally (Heh), thought can often be made to follow.

At a minimum, thoughts will be unable to find expression if the words needed to express them have been removed from circulation.
