Homophones and the "Homosexual agenda" :)
It seems the Nomen Global Language Center in Provo, Utah is having a little trouble with English.Timothy Torkildson was recently let go from his position as a social media specialist after writing an educational blog post called "Help with Homophones."
"I’m letting you go because I can’t trust you” said Woodger according to Torkildson, who posted an account of the exchange on his personal blog. "This blog about homophones was the last straw. Now our school is going to be associated with homosexuality."
"I had to look up the word because I didn’t know what the hell you were talking about," Woodger allegedly continued. "We don’t teach this kind of advanced stuff to our students, and it’s extremely inappropriate. Can you have your desk cleaned out by eleven this morning? I’ll have your cheque ready.”
Just wait until they get to the part that people are Homo sapiens...lol

I just read about this on RW yesterday. Ridiculous. It strikes me as something the admin did as a mistake, then doubled down when they realized they were wrong.

Naw, the scientific taxonomy system is all party of the homosexual agenda.

I heard the "homosexual agenda" consists of a campaign to have a taupe bidet in every mud room in the nation. Thumbsup

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

I read the comments one person insisting its not called a homophone but rather a homonym.

Sigh....

Weeping


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces
