    But we have gone too far in our efforts to make every single thing inoffensive.

    In Some Cases

    I dislike political correctness to a degree. But I understand why some words are not politically correct, and should not be used. Like retard, or retarded. While I have used that word in the past, I do not think it is okay to call someone with mental disabilities retard, or...

    I Dislike Anti-politically-correctness Too

    I dislike both, because that's really not what life is about. It's not about being as glossy, non-commital and avoiding opinions or somehow "offending" someone.   But it's equally not about being intolorant of differences and running over other people's beliefs and...

    It's Highly Destructive

    So often the opposite to actual correctness.  Political Correctness is highly destructive to our freedom, within society.  Freedom to speak, and act on behalf of what we believe to be right. Political correctness... in reality, is very wrong.

    The Fear Of What Others Think Of You

    POLITICAL CORRECTNESS is just another form of Hippocracy. Just the practice of saying and doing what you think others will like. Worrying more about image than what's right or wrong. It is used far too much to replace "common sense". American is two-faced and it is shown for...
