I know, you're about to piss yourself with excitement. Hold on (hold it in), it gets better:After highlighting the inclusivity issue, Word's new functionality will suggest more acceptable alternatives - which includes discarding 'blacklist' and 'whitelist' in favour of 'accepted list or 'allowed list'.
The function also suggests changing 'postman' to 'postal worker' and altering Neil Armstrong's famous moon-landing quote from 'one giant leap for mankind', to 'humankind' or 'humanity' instead.
Other examples of the spellchecker's woke suggestions reported by The Sun are 'maid' (Word suggests 'house cleaner'), 'showgirl' ('dancer' or 'performing artist'), 'headmaster' ('principal'), 'mistress' ('lover'), 'master' ('expert'), and 'manpower' ('workforce').
The spellchecker also took exception to Mrs Thatcher - stipulating that the former British Prime Minister should in fact be referred to as 'Ms' Thatcher.
If you think the joy ends after the listing of all the Native American tribes that used to roam where Microsoft headquarters are built and naturally wondering if the bones under the place bring good luck, you'd be mistaken. Everyone introduces themselves, tells you their race and identifies their clothing!!!
