I think the word that’s truly worn out its welcome with me is “inclusion,” and its adjective form, “inclusive.”
Uh, where is it written that everything has to be “inclusive”? Like, unless it includes everybody you can possibly imagine, it’s not allowed to include anybody.
This is poop.
“Inclusive” words would have no meaning. You have to exclude lots and lots of meanings for any particular word to have a meaning. And how could any kind of group or organization exist, if it genuinely practiced “inclusion”? There is no such thing as a category which includes bloody everything. “We’ve got real inclusion on our college Play-Doh team! Everybody in the world is in it!” Which they’d have to be, or it would fall short of total inclusion.
In ancient days, God confounded the language of mankind (ooooh! I haven’t included wimmin!) at the Tower of Babel (Genesis 11).
Nowadays, total confusion is a do-it-yourself project.
