My only argument is that damn near everyone engages in it. Even those who are against "PC" argue for suppression of speech, whether they wish to suppress left-wing thought, or if they want freedom of thought and expression to be embraced (in the process: attempting to silence those who do not).

"We all of us know down here that politics is a tough game. And I don't think there's any point in being Irish if you don't know that the world is going to break your heart eventually."-Daniel Patrick Moynihan, December 5, 1963
Case in point: I once went to a church that used a gender-neutral Bible. The reading was one of those cases where Jesus heals some guy...you know, pretty standard stuff for the Gospels. The translation was so over the top that it went out of its way to not refer to anybody as "he" or "him." Instead it was "this person" or "Jesus." I don't think it's very respectful of the man who was healed, or of Jesus, to emasculate them. In no way would I infer that only men are worthy of God, but I had a problem with that translation.
On the other hand, going around calling people "niggers" and "fags" is just plain mean and rude. So while I think there's a practical limit, some level of PC speech is a good thing.
Yes. People need to be themselves and stand up for what they believe in.
