"Bossy," "thug" and "hard work": 30 words and phrases you should never say

Gavin McInnesRebel Commentator
 

When my brother Miles compiled this list, the words "crazy" and "ghetto" were still on the market.

(LANGUAGE WARNING:)

He has since learned from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln that the former trivializes mental illness and the latter makes black people feel bad about their neighborhoods.

He would like to take a moment to publicly apologize for leaving those words out.

In short -- sorry, in a "not long" version of events -- it is important you do not use any word that anyone may find offensive not matter how crazy or ghetto that person is. Wait, sorry, no matter who that person is. Criminals are "someone who stole your bike" and a "Sir" is "The head of the search committee" or something like that.

The rules may be confusing to you, which is why you need to be constantly checking in with Miles and his crew (gang? posse? organization?) to learn how to speak. Once we master that we can focus on what really matters: how to think.

So, without further to do, we present to you, 30 words and phrases that are simply wrong (if it's any constellation, we make mistakes too).

So, what are we calling a MAN HOLE COVER now? I[’m getting confused.

Gordon Tupper – don’t ever apologize for being born a white man, just like I’m never going to apologize for being born a white woman! I am going to be proud and wear this white face until the good Lord wants it back.

Dear Diary;
Got the rest of the gang sworn in.
So pleased with myself that I got the numbers right, nailed them in fact.
Oh shit, someone’s just noticed that I dumped gals into all the junior positions.

Phew! That was a scramble but nothing solves a problem better than throwing money after it.

KARIN BOUGIE, I like that… basically it is only ok to make fun of and belittle normal size white men… I’m not sure why that is, as if we are the most marginalized right out of the gate, born white… Do I have to apologize right now for being a white man?

Marilyn, that is racist.

Mr. McInnes: While some of your monologue is mildly humorous, your co-opting of the personae of Bob and Doug McKenzie from SCTV’s “Great White North” is distracting and cringe-worthy.

Don, that’s too funny. Speaking of bars , you ever play that drinking game where you sit at a table as close as you dare to a group of young ladies. And every time they say “like” you take a drink, they should ban that word cause every time I play it I have to drive home drunk.

  1. - ‘Walk it off’. It’s ableist & insensitive, unless you’re a professional athlete. Like when you & your buddy are leaving the bar & crossing the street and he gets hit by a car… You can’t just say ‘Walk it Off’ because there may be person in a wheel chair or even a handicapped parking stall nearby. Better to just leave him there & go sign up for a sensitivity class, you racist.

I’ve always loved the saying,
“Just because you are offended, it still doesn’t make you right.”

Seems I am politically incorrect – I use them all and will continue to do so.

I also have a set of balls and am not afraid to stand up and be counted – unlike most men of today.

Genitalia? LOL – if you wear a dress and have a dick you are a weirdo and STILL a MAN – not a “wanna be woman”

Gay? Nope – homosexual is the proper term and I use it all the time.

You have the right to be offended because many people fought and died to give you that right – you also have the right to fuck off and die – perhaps your being offended offends me – my being offended at your being offended trumps you – get out of my office.

And by the way – is white NOT a colour? People of colour – I am white and it is a colour! Get over it you ass holes. If you are yellow so be it. If you are black so be it. If you are brown so be it.

Piss off all you cowardly folks who allowed this to happen.

Nope, Guy, not even “whites” can be accurately described. Take me for (a poor) example: I’m dark-haired (on my face, at least), dark-eyed, and tan nearly Native-dark. Not one patch of albino, so I can’t be classified as “white”. The best they could do is call me Caucasian. (As opposed to Asian, Negro, Australian Aborigine, and Indian (Native), which make up the remainder of the five REAL races. There are subdivisions of these, but these are the major headings/classifications, and have been for many decades.) Everything else that gets lumped into “race” is a misnomer and completely inaccurate. Nationality is NOT a race, nor is religion.

…just to abide by the leftie “division” rules, and screw the mix up even worse.

If you have to call the police to report a crime by anyone who is not white and must be politically correct so just refer to the offender as colored … do the police have to stop ; Blacks, Indians, Natives, Arabs, Orientals, Polynesians, Maoris and whites with a tan? Are whites now the only group that can be accurately described?

So when will CRACKER be outlawed? Oh yeah ,NEVER. And we all know why.

Prince Knight maybe they will release a list, updated every hour should cover it, as it seems to change everytime some idiot has a stupid whim.
commented 2015-11-06 19:20:29 -0500
Paul OMG you might offend someone you have never met and never will mean anything to your life, who’s opinion means nothing to you. We can’t have that. I also do not give a damn anymore.

Oooh, whatever will Hunter Too Too do now? First name bad, hunters use guns, surname doubling down on forbidden expression. He’s screwed for sure.
Then there Remains the issue of the" White Dwarf" stars too (uh oh I used hat word again), too (damn there I go again) bad that those old time astronomers were all old white guys. Am being niggardly?

No, I’ll remain polite — and politically incorrect. Others want to have a coronary, let ‘em. It’s too much work trying to keep up with the ever-changing and ever-growing list of “offensive” terms. Grow a backbone!
