    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...

    It Has Gone Too Far

    Of course, I do not believe that people should be referred to in terms that are degrading, with for example racist motives, but I was reading this in news today and really does show that sometimes things go to extent you truly do not know what to say anymore Drunken sailors...

    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...

    People who claim to have morals

    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.

    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...
