    Political Correctness Is The Bane Of Existence

    I am against PC with a fierce passion. I will politely and amicably wish you a Merry Xmas (if I don't know that you don't celebrate xmas, just accept the compliment in the friendly manner in which it was meant and given). I will say B.C. (not this BCE "Before Common Era" crap). I...

    As election time comes around here in Canada, and with my mother constantly watching episodes of ‘The West Wing’ on DVD, my mind has been lately saturated by politics. I have never been one for politics. Ever. Mostly because I have never understood them. However, I have also...

    Political Correctness Accepting Lies

    Political correctness is what hides the truth in modern society. Because it is so overprotecting of every minority, one cannot speak about them without being "racist". Racism today is nothing more than a minority being able to offend a majority without having to be held...

    It Keeps People From Being Honest

    PC causes the changing history to satisfy one or two people who feel offended about something that never happened to them. PC causes us to trip over words trying not to offend people. It didn't create but it does perpetuate a "double standard." PC actually causes...

    Senselessness

    Why do we now employ an outdated Americanism of not wanting to offend anyone? If you are the subject of some criticism and you don't like it make an argument. Don't go cry baby saying you're being undermined by a majority, because we are all some kind of minority. I cannot...

    Being but a simple country boy,

    I wonder if someone out there could define "political correctness" for me? Could you then state your definition not in terms of what it isn't but rather what it is and in such a way that it is impossible to tell if you are for or against it? I would really appreciate it.

    Yeah, I Used To Be Politcally Correct...In High School

    But then I turned 18, got wiser and realized how stupid it is. Here is a definition from urbandictionary.com about political correctness: "The way we speak in America so we don't offend whining *******." I think that sums it up. My generation (Generation Me) is so politically...

    There Should Be Boundaries, But Not To The Extreme

    I don't advocate the use of potentially offensive or abusive language, but I do support the right to freedom of speech and freedom of expression. It's hugely important to acknowledge that "speech" in its entirety is incredible subjective, therefore, what's offensive to one...

    No Story...Just A Statement/Observation

    Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    Censorship In Another Name

    Either something is untrue and shouldn't be said because it is untrue or it is true and needs to be known and people educated according to it. Nothing else matters. Political correctness is just a form of censorship and it holds us back as a species.

    Zimmerman Trial What Really Happened?

    No trial has divided this country in such a way since the O.J. Simpson trial. One of the biggest reasons is the media’s decision to exert their power and try to influence public opinion. The most noteworthy example is NBC and their edited 911 tape of Zimmerman’s call in. What...

    Why

    If someone is being intentionally hurtful then by all means correct them, but do people really have to go off on someone just because they didn't use the same words that they would have. Why can't people just loosen up.
