    You don't understand that words can be used in different ways? Wow. How do you function in society without being able to differentiate different meanings from the same word?



    We're all so sorry that you cannot say or do things free from criticism. It must be horrible to be held accountable for your words and actions.



    That's a depraved understanding of PC.
    How is calling your buddy retarded, who just did something dumb, something that deserves criticism? THAT is retarded. Or is it slow... or dim witted? Of is it mentally challenged? Or did you get off the short bus? The dumb part is getting defensive about terms. If I call my ex's new guy a midget because he is short that is an insult to him... not to midgets. All this defensive attack posture is what is making things worse. Worrying about offending people all the time makes matters worse.

    I called a black guy an African American in an attempt to be PC. He called me a racist and that he was an American that was black. I later called another guy a black American and he heard about it and thought THAT was racist and he wanted to be called an African American.

    **** ALL THOSE THAT ARE SENSITVE LITTLE BITCHES that want to attack attack attack. It is total bull****.

    I'm not whining. You, however, are cryin' up a storm.

    You're such a victim. How will you ever endure?

    I made a statement. You attacked it. THAT is the whining. I am not a victim. I am trying to get the victim junkies to realize that none of this is that big of a deal. If you see that as whining then you have problems. Sorry bro... just deal with it.

    At this point, I don't even know what you're crying about. If anyone is claiming to be a victim, it's you.

    Nobody is claiming to be a victim... nice conclusion though.

    The intention is conformity through obfuscation of the truth. When you attempt to change the word from what it actually was it changes the meaning too. In fact politically correct words are lies that distort the truth.

    If one word can have exact opposite meanings depending on which race uses it then its pure hypocrisy and is in direct contravention to what political correctness is in the first place. Why create a rule when you make an exception to it for some people?

    No one is disputing that you cant criticize, what sensible people dispute is when you start exacting condoned monetary or even physical revenge against people who speak their minds. It in fact, rewards lying in public because if you lie you dont get penalized, only when telling the truth do you get punished.

    PC = doublespeak, an Orwellian term.

    The truth being obfuscated is that women, gays and blacks are inferior, right?

    Nope. Simply that everybody is different and people need to grow thicker skins. Altering words due to perceived sensitivity is the wrong approach.
