But first, let's take a look at Google. It's a search engine Kat. Google it. It's now launched an inclusive language function for their Google Docs, designed to avoid words that might offend users. For example, if you were to type in the word landlord, a warning might pop up, saying it may not be inclusive to all readers and then give them suggestions for replacements, like property owner or proprietor or Mr. Furley. 

I'm still trying to figure out how that word offends anyone. Landlord goes back to feudal systems of the medieval period and all those people are dead. 

If you happen to use the word "mankind," Google might ask you to replace that with "humankind," which sucks. I mean, what if it's something historical like JFK's inaugural address? Google actually suggested one should replace "for all mankind" with "for all humankind." Man, JFK, John Nick Jr., Robert Joe, Senior Joe, Junior Ted, Kathleen, Ethel, David Michael must be turning over in their many graves right now. 

I wonder if they plan to censor JFK’s "ask what you can do for your country" line, because that might offend people who prefer not to pay their student loans.
