    One thing I don't understand,

    is that you're not supposed to call the mentally retarded the mentally retarded anymore. What ARE they supposed to be called? It keeps changing. Us mentally ill don't like to be called crazy sometimes. However, that's a little different in my case, because I'm not crazy as long...

    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 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...

    I think we're going through a transitional period. I mean honestly.  Do you think its worse that nowadays we have to watch our tongues instead of casually offending people and just going "oh well, it doesn't matter, they're just black/queer/female/immigrants/disabled...

    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!
