Oxford University Press Bans Word ‘Pork’ So As Not To Offend Muslims

It has just been revealed that the Oxford University Press has banned children’s book authors from using the words pig, pork, sausage, or any other pig-related words so that Muslim readers will not be offended.

Yes, you read that correctly: the top book publisher in the world is submitting to Shariah law by banning the word “pork.” They are also going through and deleting references to pork and pigs in older classics as well.

“I’ve got a letter here that was sent out by OUP to an author doing something for young people,” said TV host Jim Naughtie, whose wife Eleanor Updale is working with Oxford on an educational book series. “Among the things prohibited in the text that was commissioned by OUP was the following: Pigs plus sausages, or anything else which could be perceived as pork.”

“Now, if a respectable publisher, tied to an academic institution, is saying you’ve got to write a book in which you cannot mention pigs because some people might be offended, it’s just ludicrous,” he added. “It is just a joke.”

Even Muslim Labour MP Khalid Mahmood agreed that this was going too far.

“I absolutely agree,” he conceded. “That’s absolute utter nonsense. And when people go too far, that brings the whole discussion into disrepute.”

Oxford Press, however, defended their politically correct move in a statement:
“Many of the educational materials we publish in the UK are sold in more than 150 countries, and as such they need to consider a range of cultural differences and sensitivities.”

“Our editorial guidelines are intended to help ensure that the resources that we produce can be disseminated to the widest possible audience.”

What do you think about this move towards political correctness? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.

the word muslim offends me how about we ban it

I don’t want to ban the word Muslim. If we can’t call a pig, a pig, I want to rename the animal a Muslim.

I normally don’t cuss on facebook but these damn people are totally uncalled for and there demands. We did not ask them to come to OUR COUNTRY they decided on their own to come so learn to adapt to our ways. I would bet my salary that if you went to their country they would just tell you to leave or lock you up. Apparently your country was not good enough for you and you decided to come to America for the freedom so stop trying to change our ways either like them or go back where you came from. You are lucky you are here so stop trying to sue people and change our foods and words.

This is Oxford England not the U.S. but believe me it is comng here too. Brits are bootlickers so they bend their knee to anyone they are afraiid of. And they are very afraid of the muslims. Booting their asses back to the desert would be the smarter thing to do. But then again the Brits are not that smart.

Marilyn Morgan Holzerland I did my research as you suggested. You are correct, the words are not banned thanks to our government-granted freedom of speech laws. I also found that just about anyone with a small history of publishing articles can write for Inquistr…I published a few things on LinkedIn. Maybe that qualifies me to write for Inquisitr, too. I would recommend finding alternative sources of news to further your own research. Keep one thing in mind when you do your research – always find out who is benefitted by the proposed opinions in your reading, and draw your own conclusions.

Nobody was offended by anything or requested the removal of pork from oxford’s books. Oxford edits their books for foreign markets however they see fit. For instance a book that says Jesus was born from an illegitimate relationship between Mary and a Roman soldier is suitable for Israel since that’s what the Jewish Talmud says but may not be suitable for the mid-western United States. You and every other repugnant/cuntservative on the comments list should kill yourself and any offspring you may have unfortunately bred. http://www.theguardian.com/…/pigs-textbooks-oup-authors…

So, because these fuckers are allergic to the word “pork”, we’re supposed to ban the classic tale, “Charlotte’s Web”? Fuck those fucking fuckers with a big pork DICK!

You people are stupid. I am offended that you choose to support people that HATE America because we are Christian. You choose to change your publications to support these people that would cut off your head, rape you, or any other dispicable act including having sex with goats and sheep. I will not purchase any of your publications and will tell every freedom loving American of your acts.You can go to the same place they are going, hell.

this trend insinuates that people need to be protected, a form of passive restraint. these tactics only serve to deprive us of freedom of information. its evry person’s right to access information, then to decide for themselves what is relevant.

A quick search shows you this is fake:
