Google corrects you with woke 'inclusive' language | Beaufort County Now | Orwellian

Google’s document editor will begin to correct the language of what people type to be more ‘inclusive’, according to a report in the Telegraph.

The article, headlined Big Brother (sorry, Big Person) is correcting you on Google, outlines how the company is to implement ‘inclusive warnings’ on Google Docs, suggesting that users refrain from using terms such as ‘policeman’ or ‘landlord’, because they are gendered.

The warnings will alert users that what they have typed “may not be inclusive to all readers,” while suggesting users should “Consider using different words,” offering woke corrections like ‘police officer’ or ‘property owner’.

The report notes, however, that even technical terms like ‘motherboard’ fall prey to Google’s woke correction.

When Googling John F. Kennedy’s inauguration speech, Google suggests that it should be corrected to ‘for all humankind’ instead of ‘for all mankind’.

Critics hit out at Google attempting to police and change language, with Silkie Carlo, the director of rights group Big Brother Watch, calling it “deeply intrusive.”

Why do any conservatives even use far left Google for anything? It is the very worst politicized of all the search engines.
