    Jesus Christ, how disgustingly sick can these f-cking politically correct whacko's get, I have to go lay down again.

    Today News: (where's NEP)?
    Dozens of quangos and taxpayer-funded organisations have ordered a purge of common words and phrases so as not to cause offence.

    Among the everyday sayings that have been quietly dropped in a bid to stamp out racism and sexism are “whiter than white”, “gentleman’s agreement”, “black mark” and “right-hand man”.

    The Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission has advised staff to replace the phrase “black day” with “miserable day”, according to documents released under freedom of information rules.

    Harry's response is no joke. Its exactly how the Boston Globe handles stories involving the Washington Redskins, Cleveland Indians, etc

    Some of these banned phrases are just idiotically banned for being offensive when they are neither offensive nor ever meant to be offensive :rolleyes:

    Black mark is offensive? It's never been offensive, it's just that- a black ink mark next to a person used as a notation for an infraction. It's supposedly offensive because of a negative image of a color, can't offend a color now can you :rolleyes:

    Calling someone your right hand man is offensive because it is hierarchical? Funny, it's the exact opposite of what it actually means- it's an invaluable assistant. I'd be more offensive by the replacement: second in command. Yeah, that's much better. :rolleyes:

    You aren't aware of it's origin? It's to vote against, to stand against, to choose to exclude rather than include someone into an organization.
