Tongue-tied

« Back to Glossary Index

A person led astray by the ideology masked within the language, words catalog and prevalence, roles or connotations and usage ways of the spoken and written language in his surroundings. He or she don’t realize their worldview is influenced and directed by this.

Using the term in a sentence:

  • I will not go vegan because it is too extreme… Who says extreme is bad? Make sure you are not tongue-tied.
  • I used to say I am vegan for the animals, the environment, and for health. I said it and it was true, but after thinking about it, it is not the way I personally look at the world. I heard it from others; I was tongue-tied. Once I thought it through, I realized I am not vegan for the environment, a concept that highlights the insentient, but rather for wild animals living in it. So, I am vegan for farmed animals, wild animals, and human animals. 😉
