    Sexy

    I am not sexy I am ugly challenged. Please don't call attention to my disability of being so Ugly challenged. It hurts my feelings. When people call me sexy instead of Ugly Challenged I must preen for hours to correct the disability and be normal like everyone else. And don't get...

    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!

     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...

    The Contrast

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.
