    But enter an unreasonable person, and problems may arise.
    I've never met someone that objects to ANY term when used to discuss that term.

    And what does that have to do with the claim that PC suppresses "free and objective intellectual inquiry"?

    THAT claim is a bit broad and generalized.

    I'm saying it may do so in some situations, not ALL.

    It doesn't do so under any situation involving "free and objective intellectual inquiry". Your only attempt to prove such was "well, some crazy people are out there".

    Actual men do not make up claims of racism, pressure a sports team into changing it's name or go look for things to claim is racist.Butt hurt effeminate men and little girls do that.

    It was always a slur, the team name should never have been Redskin and now that people have finally started to come to this realization it is time to change it.
    That is a blatant lie.It wasn't until a bunch of effeminate men and little girls decided that the name redskin is racist.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
