    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.

    The "PC Police" are always getting offended and trying to make us watch what we say! I think it's annoying!

    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...

    The Contrast

    I actually have the book that is the icon for this group and even it is outdated now that the terms it teaches us are politically neutral are now considered not to be so. I do approve of terms that do not incur stereotypes, racism, sexism, ageism or any other type of...

    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...

    I don't like all that stuff. I don't like how every race is now refered to as (blank)-American, that is so stupid. I don't call myself a german-american, I say I'm just a white guy. Now if people get offended cause I say they are black, white, or whatever than I think that they...

    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.

    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...
