In Australia Aldi has taken Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes off the shelves for its injudicious use of the word “slut” (which is to say, Dahl used the word at all). I know what you’re thinking: how come their Aldi sells Roald Dahl? My one only has Haribos and frozen vegetables.
However, the much more important question is, what’s wrong with the word “slut”?OK, I’ve got my nonplussed face on here. It seems Zoe’s annoyed that Aldi took the book off the shelves due to what she sees as people getting outraged over nothing.
The worst thing in the world, in my view, is the ad hoc creation of a taboo without proper discussion.Excellent! I look forward to your views on bacon and children’s pyjamas, then, Zoe. Or do you just care about wimmiz isshoos?
