New government language guide tells public servants not to say husband or wife because it’s too ‘heteronormative’ and it might offend people
The Minister for Moral Corruption in the Andrews government announces:
No more ‘HUSBAND’ and ‘WIFE’ and out with the ‘HE’ and ‘SHE’!
Holding onto offensive hetero-normative concepts will no longer be permissible in the Rainbow State. The Department for the Enforcement of Sexual Depravity has been authorised to use all means necessary to re-educate Victorian public service workers still stuck in the bigoted ultra right-wing man/woman duopoly.
Sounds like a satire? This is Australia 2016.
- Inclusive Language Guide is a government initiative to keep LGBTI people safe
- Victorian workers are told to adopt gender-neutral pronouns ‘zie’ and ‘hir’
- Equality Minister Martin Foley said it will help eliminate homophobia, biphobia
- But the guide has been met with criticism for its ‘postmodernist ideology’
Public servants in Victoria have been advised not to use the words ‘husband’ and ‘wife’ in order to promote ‘safer spaces’ for the LGBTI community.
The Inclusive Language Guide is a government initiative to keep people safe, particularly LGBTI people, The Australian reported.
Workers are being encouraged to adopt gender-neutral pronouns ‘zie’ and ‘hir’, and to avoid using derogatory terms.
They are also being discouraged from asking ‘offensive questions’, particularly to transgender people, such as whether they have had surgery or not.
The guide encourages both the public and businesses to use the word ‘partner’ than wife, girlfriend, husband or boyfriend, to avoid heteronormativity and promote sexual freedom and equality.
Victorian Equality Minister Martin Foley said the guide was part of a measure to eliminate homophobia, biphobia and transphobia.

This sort of crap totally pisses me off . It is true that offended sub-groups might detect a certain amount of micro-aggression from me as in expressing my opinion , sensitized as they are, to look for it. I’m just another bigoted wankophobic.
F these NWO creeps. Good grief, what utter maggotry!
I hope they understand what “F” means.
The first time somebody refers to me as “zie” or “hir”, they will have a broken jaw.
Re: “‘The facts are that LGBTI people have higher levels of anxiety, depression and suicide – they achieve lower educational outcomes – and words matter,’ Mr Foley told Daily Mail Australia in a statement.”
Yeah, “words matter!” As in “Call things by their right names!” as that silly Confucius guy once said. Like calling these “snowflakes”
Here’s what’s REALLY been happening to our education systems, and so also to our entire societies, for all too long:
What a sick sick country Australia is becoming!
That socialist swine that govern Victoria have taken that state to an all time low!
The LGBTI community are just a bunch of meaningless desperate and confused people that try to make us all feel sorry that they really cannot get a grip on life and would prefer to blame everyone and everything for their inability to be normal functioning human beings!
