Politically-correct dumbing down of the English language used to eliminate thoughts and ideas deemed offensive to identified subgroups ie. by gender/race/religion/country of origin. Derived from term originally used to refer to removal of offensive terms (e.g. "strumpet") from Shakespeare's plays by Thomas Bowdler.
Only neovictorian bowdlerization can explain the current anti-intellectual view that gender/race are fluid and that all things are like all other things.
