I Hate Political Correctness

Political correctness is the idea that it is possible to pick up a turd by the clean end. 1,125 People

    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    Why do we now employ an outdated Americanism of not wanting to offend anyone?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...

    Everything is too political,

    and radicalised, you can't just live your life! Too many people have an axe to grind. They seem to think they can swing the majority around on their little finger. It's wrong. Minority doesn't rule, it is majority rule, or a coalition of people prepared to work together for a...

    Offending Through Trying Not to Offend...

    Words do not suffice for how much I detest the extremes to which political correctness is taken these days.  There is nothing wrong with trying to just get along with people, everyone wants to be liked and its often easier to just avoid some small issue than make a big...

    Politicians get paid.

    To protect the wealthy. And hurt the poor. And lie. So why copy such people. Political is wrong. Even they debate correctness. Better to be paid for caring about love. Not bashing love to help pigs profit.

    I hate the fact that I have to censor

    We live in a time when all cultures

    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.

    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.

    What's worse is that

    so many people don't even know what political correctness really is! The *ideal* of political correctness is in the neighbourhood of the "if ya ain't got nothing nothing nice to say" maxim. This often amounts to censoring or changing language, often to the point of dishonesty...
