Sister Speak (also see Newspeak) – the deliberate impoverization of language by gender warriors of the feminist persuasion. In an effort to wield social/political power, the aforementioned gender partisans attempt to simplify language by restricting vocabulary. The aim of such feminist thought leaders is to deflect adverse opinion and silence critics. The enforcement mechanism ranges from the formal institutionalization of sanctions, to social ostracism. The aim is to make any alternative thought, such as “sexism”, “ableism”, “ageism”, “heterosexism”, “classism”, “lookism”, “cis-ism”, “phallicism”, “fatism” and a profoundly long list of silly words (ending in “ism”) ”thoughtcrimes" or "crimethink." The concepts don’t stop at the “isms,” but continue with concepts that promote “heteronormativity.” With the depletion of language, ideologically disallowed thoughts and expression will be impossible, by the process of removing any words or possible constructs which describe such disallowed ideas.
