I will let you guys start on this one. This is a topic that angers me.
A brilliant American invention that you should be proud of :lol:
Political correctness is what has led to reverse discrimination. I hate reverse racism more then racism. Lets see, black people get African American scholorships. Mexicans get latin-American scholorships. Even indians get indian-American scholorships. Yet when someone tries to make a white scholorship, or a European-American scholorship, all the black and even white people freak out about it and call the people supporting the cause racist. This is all a direct result of political correctness. I never knew being white was a bad thing.
Want to know who is a big supporter of political correctness? Communist.
If you cuss on TV, you can get fined. What the hell?
Suddenly if I call a black person a black person, I am being politically incorrect. For fucks sake, they are black! I call white people white, but no one cares. If I call a gay person a gay, I am being politically incorrect, because I should call them a homosexual. What the hell? They have the same meaning. If I call a cripple a cripple, I am being politically incorrect. They deserve special names such as "handi-capped."
Affirmative action. Direct result of political correctness. We should give "special treatment" to minorities because our ancestors treated them like shit back in the day. Affirmative action can also be what I described above with the scholorships. Treating "minority" people special because they are simply labeled as a "minority."
Political correctness is the worst thing to happen to our world.
If I call a gay person a gay, I am being politically incorrect, because I should call them a homosexual. What the hell? They have the same meaning.
Actually, they don't... :D
I agree. Except for the cripple thing.
I hate it grrr >:( its so wrong and makes no sence and has no common sence. I have no idea why stupid concils do it I wish the persons who did it die!
Let's not forget that political correctness covers other things as well. For example, those two DJ's joking about Nick Berg's death got quite a few of you here irate I believe. It was very politically incorrect...
There is a difference between saying homo, and joking about someone's recent decapitiation.
A BIG difference.
Yes, but that was just moral indecency. People will say there are no levels when it comes to this, but I think there are. You cannot just go flashing your tits on TV anytime you want. But cussing shouldn't cause you to get sued for 50,000 dollars just because someones kid might have virgin ears.
A big difference, yes. But the point it, it's covered by political correctness. Some people may well take offence to being called a cripple, or a puff, or a ******. The latter I truly don't understand, as it's in frequent use between blacks. [size=-3]Word blocked for obvious reasons... it's politically incorrect :D. Let's just say it's very similar in spelling to the African country Niger.[/size]
