To start off here's 3 I've come across this last week alone.

Full Stops. Apparently full stops used in text messaging and the like are offensive to young people. Too much on the passive/aggressive side.Source.

.

Sky news are running a report this week that says one of the reasons black people are severely under-represented in pro swimming is because of their thick afro hair and standard swimming caps don't fit. I would have thought cutting your hair would be a solution to this problem but I suppose doing that would be discriminatory to hair.

.

Multi Grammy award winner Adele has been criticised for cultural appropriation, because she posted a pic of herself on Instagram sporting an African hairdo. I guess she's not into swimming. Source.


Do add the one's you come across as they arrive. I'll just make a prediction, exclamation marks will be next !
You do realise you're the one being had in all this don't you. The vast majority of people don't give a toss about this nonsense; and those who publish this silliness are just waiting for a sucker like you to bite and then bloviate about political correctness/ crazy lefties or whatever you're having yourself. You're being played like a fiddle. A fiddle I tells you!

Superdrug has launched 'inclusive' sanitary towels, removing any indication from them that they are for women. Pink packaging etc. Now they are for 'people who menstruate'.

That's because most people don't care and aren't easily offended or bitter by people getting a little bit ahead from where they are.

What you are saying is that all these Wokeism's are introduced specifically to annoy people like me specifically. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if that has some truth to it.

I never said a jot about politician correctness, crazy lefties, or anything like that in this thread, all I've done is take the p*ss of all this hilarious nonsense.

So, it seems to me it is you that is the one that is annoyed that it's not having the desired effect.

The fact African American businesses are being destroyed is a real dilemma for the white middleclass arseholes who claim there's a positive to it.

If anyone is getting their knickers in a twist it is you.

You are getting your knickers in a twist because you can't stand anyone taking the pi*s of all this nonsense. What could be more obvious.

Its a good idea for a forum, these things should be criticized and laughed at. I remember last week someone had written an article saying that white people owning dogs was racist for some reason.

So far only references I can find appear to be redit where most are calling it bullsh1t as in its a hoax and a load of sites for what my American friends call basement dwellers/ members of the tinfoil hat brigade.

The marketing guys must have been pissing themselves with laughter when they came up with this!
