Lefty Lunacy: Essex girls are revolting


Two overly sensitive women have complained to the publishers of the Oxford English Dictionary because they want the term ‘Essex girl’ removed for being “rude”, “devoid of taste” and “incredibly offensive”.

Their complaints, supported by 3,000 humourless drones signing a petition, centre on the definition of ‘Essex girl’ as “a type of young woman, supposedly…characterised as unintelligent, promiscuous, and materialistic.” Note the use of the word ‘supposedly’.

Here’s a tip for these wimmin, if they do not want to be called an ‘Essex girl’, don’t be “unintelligent, promiscuous and materialistic” and everything will be fine. The OED dryly hit back, saying that “nothing is ever taken out of the OED…it’s a historical dictionary…definitions can change”.

TCW suggests these wimmin look up the definition of “humour”.
