    never said that.

    PC types are some of the least tolerant authoritarian types out there.... funny many of them fly under commie and anarchist banners as "antifascist" when nothing is further from reality.

    Yep, until the shirt bearer is being stabbed by a person who was raped as a child. Then the assailant would plea insanity and win the case if they could prove PTSD and no premeditation.

    What does that have to do with political correctness? Nothing, as far as I can tell.

    You don't think that shirt could have offensive responses to a specific group of people in an orphanage?

    That isn't political correctness. It is either a threat or sarcasm. If it is a threat it is simply illegal. If it is sarcasm it is freedom of speech.

    The Political Correctness comes in when somebody opposing that shirt wearers freedom of speech calls them anti-child and wants to suppress their freedom of speech.

    That is not how I understand PC. PC is avoiding behavior that people of certain groups will find reasonably offensive.

    Wiki seems to give a definition that supports my view.

    "Political correctness (adjectivally, politically correct, commonly abbreviated to PC) is a pejorative term used to criticize language, actions, or policies seen as being excessively calculated to not offend or disadvantage any particular group of people in society."
