If it were just my opinion I would just dig a hole and jump in, but every single person I speak to, whatever age from 19 to 90, whatever their background, or occupation, we are all of the same opinion. ‘Why are the majority of the population being dictated to by a very small but loud minority, and why are we rolling over and allowing it to happen?
It started with the PC brigade, the race card, followed by gay/lesbian same sex marriages.
We then moved on as the momentum built to a crescendo of transgender, no gender, mixed sex loos and changing rooms.
Now we are urged to accept no rules except their rules, no discipline, no history unless it fits their agenda, and what are we doing about this? Nothing as far as I can see.
This mad world is being policed by the far left’s ‘Thought Police’, and life as we know it seems to be falling apart.
Leo McKinstry’s Daily Mail column on political correct madness set the scene for my thoughts for this week:
I am no fan of sheep, but must in future make eye contact for fear of causing them offence. Our Sussex steers are ‘transgender’. Having been castrated at birth, they are neither boys nor girls, should they be ‘assigned’ as ‘it’?
Councils are removing cat’s eyes, so as not to upset five years olds who believe real cats have been killed to manufacture these lifesaving road safety measures. What about scoring a ‘bull’s eye’, should darts be banned?
Models and actors can no longer pretend to be anyone but themselves. No doubt talented makeup artists’ and dressers will become redundant. No longer allowed to make an actor look older, younger or impersonate anyone in case this offends.
Cattle going to market must not be labelled fat, an unacceptable term which risks shaming them. Someone tell Roger Waters he must rename his fat stock auction as ‘Livestock with fuller figures’! What about ‘fat cats’?
Most dairy farmers encourage their cows into the parlour with gentle calls of ‘come on girls’. No longer acceptable guys, as this is sexist and an insult to mature females.
Illegal is no longer acceptable when joined to immigration. No one is illegal however they arrived, whoever they are, whatever their intent. We must welcome them with open arms, as any deviation is racists and xenophobic.
No longer can we call the vet out to visit a ‘lame’ cow, without causing offense. This only reinforces the fact that all the other cattle are healthy and sound, how dare we point out the obvious?
I fortunately have never been called mother or mummy thanks to my eldest son setting an example to his siblings. However, be warned this word is now far too old fashioned and offends our sensitive transgender cousins. No more mothers-to-be, they are pregnant people. Will children now call their parents ‘person’?
God help anyone who uses the word man from now on. I am dying to know what will replace a manhole! (Please send suggestions c/o Editor in Chief, Gary Shipton)
Local MP Maria Caulfield is helping to champion the retention of the public libraries in Polegate and Ringmer. With ‘trigger warnings’ and alarmists wishing to ban most authors including Scott Fitzgerald, Dickens, Virginia Wolfe and any others who mention life, death, murder, work, suicide, blood, ageism, mankind or anything normal, why bother?
No doubt all the books in the kingdom including the dictionary, bible and the works of William Shakespeare will soon be destroyed, so no need for libraries.
Any utterance which does not comply with the ‘Thought Police’s agenda’ is now hate Speech, no doubt someone will be knocking on my door soon!
