SHOCKING..!!

Today, I just saw an article in the suggestions sector of Google chrome which read

SHOCKING! Oxford Dictionary’s synonyms for women

The article ends like:

“it’s time that keepers of the world’s words, Oxford’s lexicographers, wake up and smell the coffee.”

I just opened it and I was shocked… Like this👇👇

Then I went to Google search and just typed “synonyms of woman” and this is what I found… 👇👇

And this was disgusting!!

Synonym is a word or phrase that means exactly or nearly the same as another word or phrase in the same language, for example shut is a synonym of close. (Google Search)

So, will you ever call a woman as Petticoat or a Baggage??

And a man as a dude, a gentleman, a guy or a youth??

I strongly feel that “it’s time that keepers of the world’s words, Oxford’s lexicographers, wake up and smell the coffee.”

  1. But surely they are saying its derogatory to call a woman baggage and its an historic reference to call a woman petticoat, they are not saying that is what a woman should be referred to they are saying that is what a woman has been referred to.
