    To my mind, and I think others, there is a difference between being PC and being polite. He also makes the valid point that if you choose to be impolite, you should be willing to accept the reaction you get.

    Re: Politically Correct?

    I dont see how anyone could have a problem with either term being used in conversation...I really dont have time to sit there and think about what I "HAVE" to say and "HOW" I have to word what I want to say and worry about offending people when I obviously have no intention of doing so....life is enough of a pain in the ass without worrying about trivial nonesense.....not saying this thread is nonesense...just saying the whole IM OFFENDED thing has gotten old...to me anyway

    This thread has nothing to do with being offended.

    What do you mean 'be willing to accept the reaction you get'? Agree with it? Not respond to it?

    "Willing to accept": if you walk up to a black man and call him a nigger, you have no room to cry if he kicks your ass. Realize that not calling him that is, by some of the definitions here, only being politically correct.

    I assumed if you were worried about asian or oriental being pc then it was a concern about offending someone...If I responded out of context...my apologies

    it has everything to do with being offended

    being knowingly offensive is the opposite of being politically correct
