Heidelberg Disputation, Thesis 21: “A theologian of glory calls evil good and good evil. A theologian of the cross calls the things what it actually is.”
I am done with euphemism. “Gender” does not exist. It is sex, male or female. “Gay” and “straight”? No: homosexual and heterosexual. “Selective reduction” is the murder of siblings. “Choice” must always be qualified: the choice to do what? “Reproductive technology” = how to provide more abortions and keep those religious zealots from restricting it in any way. “Funding for family planning” is just a nicer way of talking about how to provide abortions for poor people (maybe they’ll just go away!). “Passed away/gone on to a better place/etc.” Stop. It’s death. Calling it something else will not change what has happened.
I’d appreciate your translations of common euphemisms.
