    I've written about the hijacking of language by the Left and some of its manifestations. There are many other aspects of it, like the wounds inflicted on grammar by the use of "they", "them", "theirs" in reference to a singular subject. For example: "Everyone knows what they are doing" or "The user must log in with their password". This is done only because it's politically incorrect to use "he", "him", "his", to cover both men and women, as it allegedly gives men a status of superiority (the same as in saying "man" to mean "the human species"). Politically correct writers...

    “Tatchell heads up Mardi Gras think-tank,” gushed Same Same, a rah-rah “gay marriage” website. But no amount of glitter can hide the truth: 2011’s Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras ignores children’s rights. For starters, organizers encouraged potential ticket buyers to, “Join one of the world’s most controversial and influential LGBTI and human rights activists, Peter Tatchell, as he speaks his mind about the campaign for equal marriage rights in this very special [emphasis mine] Mardi Gras event.” The Talks and seminars page, however, failed to mention Tatchell’s colourful past. Or as Peter Hitchens of the UK’s Mail Online put...

    A UK TV station's commissioning of Peter Tatchell - a gay rights campaigner and critic of the Vatican - to make a documentary about the Pope which will air around the time of the pontiff's UK visit is drawing criticism. Mr Tatchell is one of the founders of a group called Protest the Pope that criticises the Pope's record on homosexuality, contraception and child abuse and says that he "is an unsuitable guest of the UK government", said a report on British broadcaster Channel 4 said the 60-minute program will examine the impact that the Pope's pronouncements have had...
