Unbelievable: Guess what word the BBC is banning because they find it offensive?



Liberals have done some silly things in their day, but this is one of the silliest.  Banning the word “girl”, are you serious?

The British Broadcasting Corporation censored a completely innocuous word in a recent documentary, just in case people would find it offensive.

The word: “girl.”

In a documentary ahead of the Commonwealth Games, which will take place in Glasgow, Scotland in July, host Mark Beaumont interviewed 19 year-old judo champion Cynthia Rahming and her family.

Rahming and Beaumont grappled, with the fighter taking the 31 year-old host to the mat.

“I am not sure I can live that down — being beaten by a 19-year-old girl,” he said in the documentary.

The episode originally aired in April, but in a re-run, the BBC removed the line containing the apparently offensive description of a young female.

Beaumont was apparently unaware of the editorial decision.

When asked on Twitter about the change, he said “Not sure 0- I just saw that myself and was wondering the same thing,” according to The U.K.’s Telegraph.

The edit didn’t seem to bother Beaumont, though he disagreed with the BBC’s interpretation of the word.

“Great to hear you enjoyed the coverage. Thanks. Maybe the editor though it was sexist — which it wasn’t. I’m not worried about it.”

Being called ‘girl” didn’t bother the judo star either.

“I wasn’t offended — I didn’t find it sexist,” Rahming told the U.K. Daily Mail.

I am now offended at the BBC being offended.  They should probably change their name to accommodate me.

    Liberals are masters at finding offense where ever they look.

      Except when they look in the mirror.

    whatever… there is nothing we can do to stop this stupidity… its a generation of victims and entitlement.. we just have to wait it out and hope the next generation has common sense and PRAY that we dont have a huge war to fight in the meantime

      there’s no hope unfortunately the next generation is being brainwashed by the “gimmies” and being taught they are victims and that society owes them something. well everyone that is except white kids, they are being taught they are all satan spawn and are the cause of all problems on earth.

    I’m so surprised that Jeremy Clarkson still has his job. The fact that the BBC hasn’t fired him yet is a miracle.

    • ntt1

      he generates huge ratings that’s why.

    GIRL

    undeniable facts are now debatable.
    soon, the truth and what defines it will be lost and replaced by progressive talking points.
    100% of what you say, even in private, will be required to be approved by the state before you say it.

  • Betty Boop

    Hmmm. I would like to be called a GIRL!

  • mimilundgren

    Liberal live each day to be offended….

  • AlanABQ

    So what what he supposed to say?
    “I am not sure I can live that down…being beaten by another human being who is equal in every way despite my advanced chronological age as compared to the individual’s & the arbitrary fact that said individual is of a sexual gender dissimilar to my own.”

    Would that be “acceptable”?
    I gotta say, I would be pretty amused if they just started writing news commentaries like that, where every comment is edited to make sure no one is “assigned” a “gender role” & no one is singled out for being exceptional…everyone is given a status disclaimer so that there’s no disparity between sexes, races, cultures, classes, or nationalities; everyone is the same nonspecific, sterile, gray description.
    Live news reporters would have to wing it everytime they did a news report so that they don’t accidentally let a colorful fact or comment slip out.

    LOL!

  • Pat Floyd

    Just when you think liberals can’t get any stupider….

  • Mike Bradford

    Well, “boy” is a dog whistle.

  • JB

    Surely they went through history to see which side has used the term more before championing this crusade of silliness.

  • RevnantDream

    Socialist changing words again to their meaning . Screw them, I’ve had it with their BS.
    Time we ignored these worshippers of Marx . A drunken sot who in last century is the cause of 150,000,000 million deaths with his mental illness of an ideology in the 19th century.
    Yet the left conveniently forget this. Every day is a new day for the Left. History is just there to revise.

  • BigMike

    Since “boy” and “man” both offend me I would, from this point on, like to only be referred to as “Master of the Universe” and you must all comply or my feelings will be hurt. Okay, carry on…. lol
