KEEPING UP ON MAINSTREAM MEDIA ANTICS
-A NEW FEATURE-
WE JUST learned today that the term “lady” is now considered unacceptable by the Orwellian arbiters of thought and language. I’ve seen the notorious wannabe-totalitarians known as the Poetry Cops complain about the term. Now, from someone a bit higher up on the media power ladder– Ginia Bellafante of “paper of record” The New York Times.
-Is the term “gentleman” also considered offensive? (Does this explain Brett Kavanaugh‘s alleged behavior in the past?)
-Does the prospective outlawing of these terms explain a lot of behavior from a great many people in recent years?
-WHO is going to tell Lady Mary?
THE spectacular success of Downton Abbey (movie version being filmed as I type this) might be because a large part of the populace is tired of people looking like slobs. They’d like a return to those old-fashioned concepts of grace, beauty, class, and style.
Even (gasp!) a return to ladies, and gentlemen.
