An education blogger was fired for teaching students about homophones. Yes, you read that right.
I can’t even. He was fired because his boss thought homophones would associate the school with homosexuality because it has the word “homo” in it. What the actual hell?
You can read the teacher’s account in his blog post here: http://iwritetheblogggs.com/2014/07/24/the-homophones-got-me-a-record-of-a-recent-firing/

What the damn hell?

This made me laugh-cry so hard.

If you ever feel like you’ve screwed up, just remember that in 1348 the Scots thought it would be a good idea to invade England because the English were weakened by the Plague. They subsequently caught the plague themselves, went back to Scotland, and killed half their own population.

“A long succession of such accidents has put English so far in the race for dominance in global communication that it can hardly even be called a race now.”

Geoffrey K. Pullum, who apparently thinks that imperialism, colonialism and deliberate linguicide are “accidents” (via darnhomosexuals)

What a complete and utter history denying, ignorant wankstain.
