Political correction!

"A new feature in Microsoft's Word aims to help improve writing beyond the usual grammar fixes.

Using artificial intelligence, Ideas will suggest rewrites for clunky sentences as well as changes to make sure language is gender inclusive."

I wonder how long it will be before this is monitored, and rejection of the suggested "corrections" will be cause for a knock on the door?

Or political correctness ?  My English no very good.....

Ok, does this mean that means when I prepare a nice post ending by "F.O. you c*nts", a pop up will appear saying "Nein, Herr T.S. , you cant speak like this ! Bloody frog" And being asked Confirm Yes/No

P.S. : French is gender sensitive :

Un idiot (Male idiot). Une idiote (female idiot). And yes my spelling corrector knows is. Well, at least when I tell him I am typing in French, if not the bloody Artifially Intelligent idiot has no clue !

Off-topic, but what is the gender of the word "gens"? I am getting mixed results with various adjectives.

This is one of the (many) complications in French language.

It can be both depending on the preceding adjectif.

And to make it more subtil, when speaking about women we also sometime use "la gente féminine"

It's a political correction to ensure political correctness.
