    I'll ask you again.

    What "free and objective intellectual inquiry" is being suppressed by PC, specifically.

    If you can't name anything specific, how can you make the claim?

    I cannot be sure, since I have not done any research on the matter, but I would suggest that if a politically incorrect term is either the topic of discussion or used while discussing something, negative reactions to it might have a suppressive (sp?) effect

    One of the last classes I took while getting my Masters was a class in sociology on the topic of Whiteness Studies. I lasted about ten minutes after I challenged the professor that white people are not racist simply because we are white and raised in a white dominated society and then I was laid into by two black women who started shouting at me.

    If it were not permitted to discuss whether a term is PC or not, how does PC exist?

    Obviously some discussion took place BEFORE it became un-PC to use the term. I was speaking of a scenario after a given term has become un-PC.

    I do not give a hoot what the professor says. The only opinion important to me is the group that the verbage pertains to.

    Yet discussion may be suppressed (not eliminated) by the backlash of using some words.

    Not all all. Just as the use of the word 'nigger' is fine in the discussion of the term, any term is open for discussion.

    Among reasonable persons, yes.

    But enter an unreasonable person, and problems may arise.
