    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...

    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...

    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.

    Hate It Actually

    It's killing this Country. People are afraid of every thing these days. People have to couch there sentences, words and deeds so as not to insult some censor or any other person on the face of the planet. Get over it! Get a life! We are adults if we cannot talk to each other...

    I Dislike Anti-politically-correctness Too

    I'm not advocating hurtful name calling.

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

    Political correctness is just an attempt by the political left to control our thoughts and language. It is Orwellian.
