Roald Dahl’a works are being updated by sensitivity readers. While I struggle with the rationale, I will accept it as a signal of times that are changing. We want to erase history, so that our future generations come to believe that we have always been so prim and proper? What does that imply? That this culture of perfection is toxic.

Well I am glad my daughter read her Roald Dahl’s before this happened.

In the last 48 hours I have been cited three “My Grandma said…” quotes that I believe should be reviewed by the sensitivity readers as well. Who is accountable for updating them?
