I'm with LX here. They are eliminating some of the cultural context that makes art, literature, drama, etc. what they are.

Think of how we could destroy so many fine novels by replacing words some people deem offensive. I want my Lolitas, my Tropic of Cancers, my Portnoy's Complaints...uncorrupted.

It's worse than modernized Shakespeare, and that's saying something.
