    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...

    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 Can't Keep Up With It...

     One minuet somethings acceptable, the next its not, then it is again... At work we are no longer allowed to do a nativity scene as our Christmas play, so as not to leave out or offend people from other religions.... Its ridiculous.

    Trasitional?

    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...

    No Such Thing As Multi-culturalism!

     In my view, this political correctness is so one sided and people have learnt to play the race card because of it. I saw on the news a while back that a woman who worked for British Airways was asked not to wear her Cross because it could cause offence to other religions...

    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 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.

    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...

    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...
