Microsoft Word included a new feature in the latest update of the application’s software that seeks to promote inclusiveness in writing. In addition to the already available features that allow checking for spelling and punctuation mistakes, the change notifies the author when a harmful phrase has been used in the document.
Microsoft Word introducing a feature to assist in ideological instruction while you write: words that "imply bias" will be highlighted by being underlined in purple and helpful "inclusive" suggestions more pleasing to the wokenvolk will be offered https://t.co/1nl19tAxIv

Microsoft Word will look for phrases that fall into categories on race, gender, age, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status, according to the Sun. The software asks to change phrases like “maid” t0 “house cleaner” and “manpower” to “workforce.” The hope from Microsoft is to give its 250 million users the appropriate phrasing to use in their writing according to the latest progress ‘woke’ pedagogy.
The Times reports the inclusivity checker was created to “eliminate biases based on gender, age, ability, and more.” Microsoft has reportedly hired language experts from every country to ensure that the population isn’t discriminated against in the privacy of someone’s personal writing.
At the moment, Word gives you the option to switch off the “inclusive check” option, which underlines the writer’s thought crimes in purple. Without the purple line of inclusiveness, one might make the grave mistake of using “mailman” instead of “postal worker.”

This isn’t the first time Microsoft is being called out for going all-in on woke culture. In early November 2021, the company released a bizarre video where everyone involved began describing their attributes, including their race and hair color.
A Church of England clergyman has come out against Microsoft’s inclusive update begging for the woke corporations to leave everyone alone.
“I hate this so much. Can I just be left alone to write what I want to write, how I want to write it in the privacy of my own home, please? The creepy view that companies like Microsoft have to police your language at all times and in all places borders on dystopian.”
