I know that I’ve posted something like this once before, but I’m going to share this with you again.
I am writing a paper for my poli. sci. class (Problems with American Democracy) on Rick Perry’s book, Fed Up. (It wasn’t a bad book either. Pretty quick read too. Check it out if you have time!)
Anyways, I’m writing a sentence about the Founding Fathers, and Pages (the word processor for Macs) underlines “fathers” in green, which means there is a grammatical error.
‘What in the world,’ I’m thinking, ‘Could be wrong with “fathers?”‘
Oh. The liberals have even taken over the auto-correct on our computers.
Father is a gender-specific word and should be replaced with something more appropriate. Examples include “originates”, “gives life to”, and “parents.”
Seriously? you say.
Seriously. And don’t just take my word for it. I have PROOF.
Voila. Pretty ridiculous, huh? I thought so.
Have fun, y’all!
