    Yes we should stay on topic!

    So, I am pretty sure "damned vaginas" prefer to be called "hellbound birth canals" nowadays... just sayin.

    One of my favorite parts about PC ideals is the fact that in time the preferred names for certain things/groups etc will no longer be preferred because they will eventually take on all the sorts of baggage any label takes on over time and then we will have to have new ones yet again... silly.

    At the end of the day, does any of us care what anybody else thinks of us?

    Politcal correctness is used to not offend anybody about anything at any time.

    I think people need to be offended once in a while.

    Political Correctness is watered-down Marxist mind-control. Screw it. I hate it. I deliberately undermine it as best I can, in the world it has made all around us.

    Oliver Hardy and Stan Laurel. Look 'em up. They were huge commediens/actors back in the silent film days and on into talkies.

    I think of the hyphenated American syndrome. How many ways have there been to refer to African Americans in the last century? Can't people make up their mind?

    It's mind control! For real! "Marriage is between a man and a woman." Y'know controlling thoughts and language.
