Common phrases like “bring home the bacon” and “put all your eggs in one basket” have been deemed offensive to vegans and vegetarians, who want them replaced with animal-friendly alternatives like “bring home the bagels” and “put all your berries in one bowl”.
Instead of “kill two birds with one stone” we should say “feed two birds with one scone”. “Take the bull by the horns” should become “take the flower by the thorns”. No longer should we “beat a dead horse” but instead “feed a fed horse”. And rather than “let the cat out of the bag”, we should simply “spill the beans”.
According to one academic, as increased awareness of vegan issues filters through society, meat-based metaphors may end up being ditched from the language altogether.

Political Correctness

That was such a daft read.

Of course politically correct can be seen in either a positive or negative light, which have far easier definitions than the rather messy definition on that page.

The negative definition of political correctness is where you take a double standard and simply invert it, thereby leaving a double standard in place.

The positive definition of political correctness is where you remove a double standard.

These twats are trying to conflate the positive and negative definitions.
