    The word family is offensive, inappropriate, homophobic, and wrong according to a Google employee.

    The dems never cease to amaze me at what they come up with next to try and tear down. Even if fake news...would it surprise anyone, about anything a dem might conger up as offensive?

    It is almost like learning second language with what the dems have in mind for America.

    1) Why should we care if someone is offended?
    You make a choice to be offended or not to be.
    2) Why should be care if employees of a company are offended?
    They do not speak for all Americans.
    3) Who runs the company?
    If you are the head of a company, act like one - step up an be a leader.
    4) If it wasn't for a Mom & Dad who chose to have children, the brats would not exist.

    An older peeve, why is everybody a "lady" or "gentleman" these days?
    I even read a cop to describe a felon that he arrested as "the gentleman who..."

    Yeah -- no thanks, Google employees... I'll stick to all of my old-world terms and addresses.

    “A Google executive sparked a fierce backlash from employees by using the word “family” in a weekly, company-wide presentation, according to internal documents obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.”

    They claim the word is not inclusive. You know what else isn’t inclusive? Getting words or phrases or ideas banned because you don’t like them. The Left: all about inclusion except for people or ideas they don’t like. It’s mental illness on display.

    I should also point out: If you have a family and aren’t apologizing to the LGBTQ community for rubbing their noses in it, these people apparently hate you for it. Let that sink in.

    This should not be in any way surprising. Leftists have been intentionally (and successfully) destroying the American family as an institution for decades through their policies.

    Why should it be surprising that as we enter the progressives' endgame to a totalitarian socialist dictatorship that they will finally come out and openly proclaim that to a progressive "family" is just another dirty word?

    One reason I avoid people as much as possible (not a good thing). What really concerns me is that now 'hate crimes' have legal consequences and their definitions keep changing. Burn an American flag and lefties will defend you and you might get a stern warning from a cop. Try burning an LGBT flag and see what happens (someone around here did and got 2 years probation a few years ago).

    How can anyone possibly avoid offending someone if they have no idea what will offend them, especially if what was ok yesterday is offensive today? Worse, if you DO avoid people, then you are being exclusionary or tagged as a loner who shouldn't be allowed to <fill-in-the-blank>. And now your very appearance can offend.

    This is yet another way of destroying the fabric of society and specifically undermining whatever your enemies think or say. Read (or re-read) the book '1984' side by side with today's news. In context of this thread, we are witnessing 'newspeak'.

    Me too. If someone approaches me in the spirit of PC, they will be in for a real treat! I am an equal-opportunity offender. Deal with it. :mad:

    IMO, when EVERYTHING is offensive, then nothing will be offensive. Like the word racist. How much of its power has been taken away by the constant use of the word? Once everything is racist it ceases to be meaningful....

    Ah, but everything is not "offensive" to progressives. They get to pick and choose what is "offensive" this week and can crucify their enemies retroactively for having been "offensive" in the past (when it wasn't offensive yet...). So the day when "everything" is offensive will never arrive.

    Its a technique of political terror that was honed to a fine edge by leftists in the French Revolution. Its use today is just one of the tools of the leftists that are making war upon traditional America.

    Grumpy,

    You are more right than you realize. I suggest that you take a look at Jullian Castro, who recently announced his candidacy for Pres. He was San Antonio's mayor for a while until summoned to DC by Pres Obama.

    His biggest accomplishment as mayor, was to institute a program called "Pre K for SA." Yet another feel good way of getting parents to "drop" their kids off for their daily dose of "radicalizing" in the democrat "way!"

    I believe that it's sole purpose was to get control of the very young "minority" minds to be "socialized"................ the right way, not according to the "family's" way.

    There were/ are already many programs for working parents,.............. why not a couple more for us to fund................. "it's for the chillren", after all!

    I haven't actually met one these mental hospital escapees yet in person, so I'm trying not to get too agitated.

    When I do it may actually be enjoyable to watch them have a triggered meltdown, courtesy of myself.
