    In my opinion the difference is along these lines:

    Politically correct -avoiding language that might offend anyone, especially with respect to gender, race, or ethnic background.In other words in order not to offend someone who is a "minority".

    Politness - showing good manners, being refined or cultured without taking account of race gender or ethnic background.


    Being PC is more of an ideology while politeness has to do simply with behavior.

    I couldn't disagree more. There are all sorts of attempts at 'political correctness' that have nothing to do with minorities. Trying to control speech and meaning could be said to be a symptom of excessive attempts at 'political correctness', such as 'Marriage is between one man and one woman' for example. Quite the opposite of attempting not to offend minorities.

    Measured and sensible people will always tailor their language so as to avoid gratuitous or even unintended offence. That IS good manners, but many of those who have a nostalgia for bigoted unpleasantness will call that 'political correctness' in a pejorative sense.

    Re: How Politically Correct Are You?

    To me, political correctness can take many forms, and perpetrators of political correctness are not exclusive to any group of people or ideology. Political correctness, in my opinion, generally takes the form of attempting to control thought or speech through the perpetuation of certain myths and narratives that a particular group takes for granted, and when people expose those myths for what they are, they are attacked by the "politically correct" for telling it like it is.

    Classic example: "OMG! He criticized the Israeli government! Therefore he is an anti-Semite! (or subscribing to an anti-Semitic argument!)" or

    "You criticized the war! You are unpatriotic and unAmerican!" or

    "Pro-life? You hate women!"

    "You're pro-choice? You hate babies!"

    At the same time, I'm entirely peeved when people simply label an opposing argument as politically correct because they are incapable of understanding nuance (as opposed to black and white), or are simply ignorant. This comes up repeatedly in transgender threads, for example ("transgender folk are lying to themselves! They are pretending to be something they are not! Acknowledging transgenderism and promoting SRS as a treatment is simply political correctness!"). This behavior also crops up when people make the argument that Islam as an entire religion is somehow inherently more evil or inferior to the other Abrahamic faiths.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Thats more stupidity and bad logic than anything else.
