The English Idiom, Out the window, is widely used across the English speaking world, and should be known by most native English speakers.
It is a safe idiom and should not offend anyone.
When something is made obsolete or changed because of an external factor then, the thing made obsolete or changed has gone out the window.
“I wanted to go on holidays today, but I broke my leg yesterday so my holiday plans went out the window.”
“When I was at university I studied the computer program DOS, but when Windows 95 was launched all my study went out the window and I had to start again.”
To go out the window is used to describe when something is obsolete or changed due to external forces.
