    Whether or not I'm at all careful about being pc depends on who I'm talking to. I think people in general are just oversensitive, when there isn't something going on that is really worthy of their attention and concern then they have to find something. It's a faux issue.
    I believe half of the things I say and say half of the things I believe.

    I see how PC people are with certain issues even on DP, more less the public media and it doesn't usually jive with what's happening on the street level. It's like two different world's. There's a reality show called "Jokers" about 4 life long buddies pulling pranks on each other and everything they do would get them infracted here....lol

After a report from the UK's Daily Mail detailing as much, Baldwin launched a Twitter rant against the publication's writer who produced the piece -- and used several gay slurs in the process."
    Yeah, but it's Alec Baldwin and he's done some cool **** in movies, so no harm no foul.

    You can see from this thread that it is nowhere near that.

    A woman says something 30 years ago and she loses her business, and Baldwin goes for the gay bash and the reaction is, who cares what he says.
    Dean was fired for a hostile work environment and sexism.

    Painting the Paula Dean thing as something said "30 years ago" is a wee bit disingenuous.

    She had a continuous record of questionable statements and offensive behavior that persisted even after people complained. She also refused to hold her brother, an executive manager in one of her restaurants, accountable for sexual harassment and racist statement. In fact, she never once even bothered to tell her brother to tone it down.

    In actuality, Dean was brought down less for her own racially insensitive statements than for defending her lout of a brother.

    When asked in her deposition if she knew that her brother had shown pornographic movies on his work computer, and laid pornographic pictures out on his desk for all to see, she said, "Well, boys will be boys, and boys do like that kind of stuff (paraphrasing) so I guess it's possible." She was then asked if she thought it was wrong to have that kind of imagery laid out for all to see. She said, "Well it depends on what the relationship is between Bubba and whoever was in there." She would not say that, in no uncertain terms, was it wrong to have that out there.
