I Think People Are Too Politically Correct

    For Who

    What is the purpose of everyone being politically correct all the time?  To keep from hurting someones feelings.  That's about it, too.  So we, as a people, a nation, lose our freedom of speech because speaking American may hurt someones feelings.  Bull-Sh!t...

    Political Correctness Suks

    hang on, let me shuffle the deck and see which card I shall use today. Nope, can't use the 'race' card, I'm white!.  Can't use the 'gender' card because I like being a woman and think feminists are a bunch of anti-**** women, cannot use the 'victim' card because I am not...

    FINALLY!!!

    The thing about 'politically correctness' that irritates me is that its just another way to cover up racism and stereotypes by putting a pretty name on it. To quote: People think that using bigger words and talking slower will change the meaning of what they're saying...

    Sometimes they can be, political correctness sometimes makes big issues out of stuff not meant to be a big issue. Sometimes they're used to mask prejudice or offensive opinion into a polite and seemingly harmless remark.

    I Think That People Just Need ...

    I think that people just need to live their lives the way that they want to as long as it is morally correct. What is the point in being politically correct. Most of the political thing that I know and understand are a crock anyway.

    I Actually Laugh At People Who Are Politicaly Correct

    I'm sorry, I know it sounds mean. But seriously, I laugh at people like that. I mean, be a man and just say what's on your mind. You have that thing called common sense, so you should know when you've crossed the line, or not. For example. White People. Stop trying to...

    It has come to the point that even a PB&J sandwich can be considered to have racist undertones. No, seriously Google it. It happened in Portland, OR about a month ago. A principle literately had a fit over a teacher using PB&J as a common food item. She now is pushing for the...

    Absolute Rubbish

    Politcal correctness is codified lying predicated on the notion that if you call a pig a swan often enough it will become a swan.  The worst of it is that by patronizing the groups it is intended to help it holds them to a lower standard thereby infantilizing them and...

    You Are a Minority

    I don't get it. Why, in our culture, are minorities so coddled? By this I refer to every minority ranging from a minority as small as you--the individual you happen to be uniquely--and as large as the entire group of Jews residing in America. I recently read a news article...

    No Such Thing As Multi-culturalism!
