A mancomplains about the euphemism list, arguing that it only starts an euphemism treadmill.

The Department of Political Correctness unveiled its new set of 2014-2015 euphemisms today at a press conference in New York after the old euphemisms acquired the same negative connotations as the original phrases.

"We believe that these new euphemisms are currently the best choice for our disprivileged peoples," said spokesperson Janson Mandelles at the press conference, "they used to be discriminated against using blunt words. Now, we can rest happy knowing that they will be bullied using our versions of the insulting phrases instead."

The changes to the euphemisms list include changing "homosexual" to "homoable" and "acisgender", as well as yet-to-be-released changes to racial adjectives.

The euphemisms list also includes advice on how to avoid "ableist" language, advising readers to use "the economy is handicapable" instead of "the economy is crippled", and "unsighted person to the truth" instead of "blind to the truth".

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
