Heard on the radio that their editing James Bond Novels to remove words that Woke people find offensive! Is this true?

I don't think we should allow this if it is. I'm not a fan of the James Bond Books, just the movies. But if they get away with this. Where is it going to end?
If you don't like a book don't read it! Why do people have to lose their right to freedom of speech just because someone gets offended. And if you offend easily seek Therapy!

I think there should be edited versions like there are on tv (over the air broadcasts)

an original unedited version and then one that is sanitized for public consumption

so shoot me
@Pretzel that's probably exactly what happens. I highly doubt the original versions will be recalled.

What will be left of James Bond if they edit it lol 😂

@Mooed78 I grew up with More, Dalton and Brosnan's James bond. And then Austin Powers came out and I thought it was dreadful parody. Then I watched Connery's Bond... Austin Powers was tame by comparison. 🤣
It's a little more complicated than that.

They're editing history to remove war as its bad😅🤓

You know, I don't give a fuck that some of those books were really racist. Where is it going to end?

@hunkalove 1962 was a different area. I was 12 years old in the 90's and mum would have been happy if I read anything.
