…why I don’t read a lot of governmental and politically correct sites about disability. I overdose on the antonyms and euphemisms and the bullshit. George Carlin called it soft language so I looked and found the bit that popped into my head more than once today.
"I don’t like words that hide the truth. I don’t like words that conceal reality. I don’t like euphemisms, or euphemistic language. And American English is loaded with euphemisms. Cause Americans have a lot of trouble dealing with reality. Americans have trouble facing the truth, so they invent the kind of a soft language to protect themselves from it, and it gets worse with every generation.
For some reason, it just keeps getting worse".
Ahhhhh…You Tube rarely fails to provide.
