    Re: Politically Correct?

    What bothers me is that people think that political correctness is somehow a bad thing.

    Then your entire argument about being politically correct or polite is meaningless.

    We apparently don't.

    Then you agree that your original premise on political correctness in this thread, and in every other thread has been wrong.

    I can question religion to many people and there is no harm but as soon as a person demeans the religion with the same questions, then it takes a different context. The intent changed.
    I do not deny that context is important.

    it's only a bad thing in the dark recesses of the forum.

    Not even that. Words have power only in what power is granted by the listener.
    Very true.

    That was kinda the point of this thread. PC is wrong, when taken to an extreme or people attempt to force others to say things a certain way. But most PC is just being courteous. It's another one of those words that people throw out to condemn things they don't really understand.

    Really bitch?

    Oops.....

    Note for those who do not understand: the use of the word bitch in this case was representative to make a point, I was not calling nor do I think Evanescence is a bitch. I would have used a different word that would have been more effective except the word filter would have killed the effect.

    Yeah, so at my job I'll go to up to all the kids with Autism and say "you're all retards" and see what kind of reaction I get. Obviously it's their fault if they're offended and I lose my job, because they're stupid retards.

    Wanting something to be called incorrectly is PC. Even wanting something that is sometimes called correctly, and other times called incorrectly, is also PC.
