    Re: How Politically Correct Are You?

    I'm surprised at the results so far on the poll. People are always telling we I need to watch what I say or I should be more polite, etc... but I believe in calling it like it is. I am also not very good at faking it.

    I struggled between 3 and 4 because I do have to be PC in one of my jobs because I am in a position where all the patrons can hear me and we can't risk offending anyone. Other than that I pretty much say what I feel.

    I think that the reason so many people here feel the same way because we like to engage and have to say how we feel in order to participate in the threads.

When they grabbed up my second amendment I sat still and bit my tongue because, truth be told, Iím allergic to guns. But here we are, you with your cold hard fingers wrapped around the neck of my first amendment and Iíve got to shout as loud as I can, because if I donít, before you know it, you wonít let me say nothing at all"

    A numerical value is pretty pointless with any sort of baseline for comparison. One hand, I don't like the PC euphemisms that futilely attempt to modify behavior by changing terminology. On the other, I can't stand people who try and forestall criticism of their bigotry by whining about political correctness.

    Not remotely.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Re: How Politically Correct Are You?

    Just wanted to add , these PC people usually have good intentions and would like the creation of a perfect world where everybody loves each other, there is no war, famine or pestilence and the sun shines 24 hours a day. And the way to achieve this is being nice to each other but ignoring the fact that a lot of people won't be nice to you in return and will take advantage of you.

    In other words the politically correct tend to be naive, inexperience in life and live in their own little dream world.

    Wakey, wakey brothers and sisters!

    This is me too more or less.

    I abhor much about political correctness and see much of it as subtle bigotry.

    But I try not to be offensive, even when someone who would take offense would be wrong or misjudging (pre-judging perhaps?) me by being offended.

    So yes... politeness and the golden rule blend into PC at some point. I try to keep it on the politeness side.

    4?
