PC RUN AMOK
John Hudock of Common Sense and Wonder has this gem:
The latest victim of PC idiocy, use of the word ‘brainstorming’ for fear of offending people with epilepsy.
The term “brainstorming” has become the latest target of political correctness, according to a charity.
Trainee teachers are being told to avoid the word for fear of offending pupils with epilepsy. Instead they are being advised to use “word storm” or “thought shower”.
Dostoevsky must be rolling in his grave.
Since his accursed B*S archives don’t work and this was several posts down, I just copied it all. Go visit him anyway. 😉
Update: Kieran Healy points out that, if you read the rest of the article, it turns out not to be that big a deal. Well, allow me to retort: It’s a lot more amusing John’s way.
