Woke Font Calibri

Did you know we have a Chief Diversity Officer? And she just changed the font to woke font. She is getting rid of Times New Roman and changing it to Calibri because it is easier to read.

Our first Chief Diversity Officer is Gina Abercrombie-Winstanley, and she reports directly to Antony Blinken, the 71st United States Secretary of State.

The font is changing so people with reading impairments can read more easily. In other words, woke font. Must have equity and inclusivity in all things? Even our font? Change the font, I don’t care, but must we claim it is for inclusivity purposes?

Meanwhile, Russia and Ukraine, China, and Taiwan. Now we can add Times New Roman and Calibri. We must worry about the woke font during the world’s instabilities.

The change will go into effect Feb. 6 and apply to all of the department’s formal communications, Gina Abercrombie-Winstanley, the department’s first chief diversity officer, said in an interview on Wednesday. The change will help make the department’s paperwork more “fully inclusive,” she said. – article link

Gina Abercrombie-Winstanley’s title and position were created so Joe Biden could claim his prowess for putting racial justice at the forefront of his administration.

Microsoft changed its default font back in 2007, it used to be Times New Roman as well, but they changed it to Calibri. So it’s about time the United States government caught up.

Honestly, I don’t have a problem with changing the font. Calibri probably is easier to read. Also, the family of Serif fonts (Times New Roman) has those little decorative flairs at the end of each stroke, whereas the Sans Serif fonts like Calibri are more basic, like a regular print.

But Calibri doesn’t come with a squeaky clean slate either. Several years ago, the Calibri font was in the news with #fontgate.


I wonder if the most recent ousting was because of Calibri?

Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif is a Pakistani businessman and politician who has served as the Prime Minister of Pakistan for three non-consecutive terms. He is the longest-serving prime minister of Pakistan, having served a total of more than 9 years across three tenures. Each term has ended in his ousting. – wikipedia

Seriously Though

Doesn’t the Secretary of State have better things to do? You know, like getting American hostages home? It is well-known how Antony Blinken feels about China, though.

Katherine Swidan’s son, Mark, has been imprisoned in China for 10 years, and the last time she heard his voice was in 2018. God bless; my heart goes out to her and others who are going through this agony.

She (Katherine Swidan) and the families of other Americans, who according to the U.S. government are wrongfully held in China, are hoping that the U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken can push the Chinese authorities for the release of their loved ones as he visits Beijing next month. – Reuters

Mark Swidan, Kai Li, and David Lin are some Americans imprisoned in China. The families, of course, want them home. They probably would like them to be brought up in conversation when Blinken goes to China next month.

Better yet, they would like them to be front and center of attention in a humanitarian effort rather than be bogged down by a complicated policy.

Perhaps you must be a cannabis-vaping WNBA player to get this administration’s attention. And thank goodness we have a new font.

    It is easier to read and doesn’t look silly. That should be reason, enough – and the only reason.

    To try to frame this as some equitable change… how is their target audience not completely offended by that bullshit?

    • GWB says:

      Why not simply use Arial?

      • Hate_me says:

        Ariel would work, too. Either is an improvement over Times New Roman as far as readability goes.

        Then again, I kind of wish all official documents had to be handwritten in cursive. It worked for the Founders, and would demand a degree of academic rigor that is simply lacking in many functionaries today.

  • Cameron says:

    hmph. Times New Roman is God’s Chosen Font. Fight me!

  • George V says:

    This font change makes sense, I think. When I was young these were called “block letters” and were the first written letters taught to children as they learned the alphabet and how to write. The next step was cursive writing.

    With our youth no longer learning any handwritten lettering at all it makes sense to devolve the printed word into these childish block letters, eliminating anything that adds styling to the letters.

    • GWB says:

      The serif, btw, are how you tell an upper case “I” from a lower case “l” and a numeral “1”.
      They are actually important in written communications.

  • GWB says:

    So it’s about time the United States government caught up.
    Sorry, no. Microsoft should not be our leadership in anything. They changed their default because (I’m betting) there’s a bit of money involved – probably IP they can claim on your work. I prefer the public domain fonts. (And if you want sans-serif fonts because they’re easier to read, then why not Arial? Oh yeah, because it’s public domain.)

  • GWB says:

    Also, y’all have a problem, it seems, on the Klaus Schwab post. I’m getting a 500 Internal Error when I try to post a comment. I can’t find anything like a weird character in my comment, so it might actually be something wrong on your end. 🙁

  • Ann in L.A. says:

    Interesting. Years ago, I ran a website with many active users. I changed to a sans serif font, thinking it would be easier to read. The response was overwhelmingly negative, and people said the old font was easier. I switched everything back.

  • Actually, to be “inclusive” – they should be using a typeface like OpenDyslexic. Completely free.

    I’m not dyslexic myself, but I tried it for a while on my Kindle. It does look somewhat strange for a while, but her dyslexic fiance found it to be a big help for his reading.

  • Stephen C says:

    I was raised on New Times Roman, made the switch slowly to Calibri, if it will help secure our hostages’ freedom, its a first step I happily make.
