The latest trend is the rape pron: to add an apostrophe to the end of the word “rape”, and make it sound like a noun (rather than a verb).
It’s a convenient way of making it sound as though a rape is a crime.
There are also the rape hearts: when a character says, “This is rape”, it means that it’s happening.
There’s no reason to be offended by them; they’re not really rape.
But in the words of a former New York Times columnist, they’re a “dissent of the day”.
There are no more rape hearts.
There will be no more Rape Pronouns.
The only thing that will remain is the word rape, and there will be none of its other meanings, like “a crime against nature”.
But if the word becomes the new crime, how will it change the world?
The word rape was invented by the American writer and activist Erich Fromm in 1933.
It came about because of a case in which a female police officer, named Sarah Dutton, was accused of raping a young man.
She was acquitted, but she became a celebrity and a pariah, and her name became synonymous with sexual abuse.
Fromm, a liberal, was an atheist, but he believed that rape was an evil act, and that the punishment for it was death.
So he created the word.
And it’s still the word we use today.
But is it right?
From 1972, it was changed to the words “rape, assault” and “sexual assault”.
The law was amended in 1979, to change it to “sexual intercourse”.
But there are other ways of changing the word: for example, to make it mean something like “inappropriate sexual behaviour”, “sexual exploitation”, “sexually offensive conduct”, “non-consensual sexual intercourse” or “sexual abuse”.
But it’s never been clear what the correct meaning is.
The first time a new word was changed was in 1998, when the word faggot was added to the Oxford English Dictionary.
But it was a short term and the word didn’t have any legal significance, so it didn’t make it into the dictionary.
What was the point of adding the word at all?
The Oxford English Corpus says that the word comes from a Greek word, meaning “to put on a façade”, so it’s easy to see how a word like faggots could be a euphemism for “sex” in the eyes of the law.
But from the start, there was confusion.
When it was first added to Oxford, the Oxford OED said it was meant “in the sense of ‘furniture for the display of female breasts'”.
And in a later edition, it said it meant “to conceal one’s breasts”.
It didn’t say what the original meaning was.
And even after the OED updated its definition, the OE kept changing it until it was “a vulgarity”.
In 2015, a panel of judges said that it was incorrect, saying that faggotte is a “brazen and unseemly word, so should be restricted”.
This caused a huge uproar, because it meant that it could no longer be used in a courtroom.
The Oxford OE said it wanted to be “clear that words of this kind have no legal value”.
But from its own dictionary, the dictionary of English, the word does not appear to be a “legal value”, and the Oxford Dictionaries Committee has no authority to make changes to the OEF’s definition of the words.
The word fagot is still widely used in the UK, and it’s a popular word in Australia too.
It has been used in slang.
And the word itself is still being used as a synonym for “pornography”.
So is there any real reason to change the word?
There are three different definitions of “porno” in Australia.
The original definition was that it refers to sexual images of people without consent.
It was based on an article in the Australian Law Review in 1982, which was written by the prominent legal historian Peter Tatchell.
The article said that the term porn had been invented by a group of academics and politicians, and was meant to refer to sexual material which was “not of legitimate commercial value”.
The OED has since added a footnote to its definition to say that it doesn’t mean “posterity”, “fantasy”, or “films”.
But the definition is still used, and is still confusing.
The Australian Sexual Offences Act 1984, for example (which was introduced in the 1990s), says that it means: “any material of a sexual nature” that depicts a person, or depicts any object, of a person’s or of an identifiable group of persons, that depicts, or is likely to depict, sexual activity involving penetration, or includes a visual depiction of sexual activity.
So in other words, it
