L.E.F.T.


 

L.  E.  F.  T. 

 

Liberal   Education   For  Terminology

 

        Several years ago the term Political correctness was coined.  There are certain terms we should not use as not to offend others.  Unfortunately, when taken to extremes, which it often is, everyone will be somehow offended.

 

  Liberals want us to use certain terms used so as to soften the blow as to the truth of the terms used.

 

DEPENDENT:   This term as L.E.F.T. is applicable to military dependents.  Years ago, wives and children of military personnel were called dependents.  Some PC's got upset at that term because "they were not dependent" on their husbands.  True, many did have their own job and ect.  However, when it come to military benefits ie PX, Commissary, travel overseas ect, they WERE dependent as it is their husbands military service that authorizes such benefits! 

NOTE:   the PC term now is family member

 

Listed below are some terms that fall under L.E.F.T. and followed by a short explanation.  It should be noted that I will not use these terms except in explanations.

GAY:           adj  Happy and carefree     -   The word "Gay" sounds so much nicer than "homosexual".  If those in that lifestyle are proud of it, why not use the appropriate term?   God's creation was for a man to love a woman - not another man.  Homosexuality is a abomination to the Lord God.

He or She       Use of this term is a bit ridiculous.  Proper English dictates when the gender is unknown, the masculine term shall be used.  This usage in no way denigrates the female gender.  In addition, use of this phrase makes reading very choppy.

HYPHENATED-AMERICAN   This is really a pet peeve of mine.  First, we should be proud to be an American!  Second, by giving ourselves a hyphenated prefix, we are dividing our country.  Third, exactly what is the definition of a (fill-in-the-blank- American.   For example, could a Caucasian from South Africa be qualified to be an African-American?  Would a native of Seoul, be considered a Korean-American the day he gets off the airplane in Chicago?, or do you have do be here, say one year to qualify that designation?

MS.  n  Conventional title for a woman.  The definition for MRS. is the conventional title for a married woman.  Well which is it?   MS is not even a word or abbreviation!  I am willing to compromise on this.   When a man and women are married, they become united.  This comes under the heading of "ME FIRST".   She should be proud to be her husbands wife.  

Therefore, if an  older single women does not prefer to be addressed by Miss, then I will use the otherwise accepted term whick is spinister. 

spin·ster (spĭn'stər)
n.
A woman who has remained single beyond the conventional age for marrying.
A single woman.
A person whose occupation is spinning.

[Middle English spinnestere, female thread spinner: spinnen, to spin;see spin + -estere, -ster, -ster.]
spin'ster·hood' n., spin'ster·ish, spin'ster·ly adj.

*************************

Pro-Choice:  I AM Pro-choice.  I believe that if a baby chooses to be aborted, I believe he should have the choice to do so!

Those who believe they have a right to abort other people are "PRO-ABORTION"!Why are these folks afraid to use the term pro-abortion?  Because Pro-choice sounds so much nicer.  In addition, I refused to be labeled "Anti-choice" because I do believe in choice!

Since I like to get folks to think, I like to specificy the self-governing (?) non-federal goverments as States or Commonwealths. 

Four of the states bear the formal title of commonwealth: Kentucky, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. In these cases, this is merely a historically based name and has no legal effect.

IF YOU HAVE AN ADDI TON FOR  L.E.F.T. please drop me an email and I will add it to my list and will give you literary credit for it.
