    It was odd being on a flight and seeing a male flight attendant, because in my mom's day they were all young women who looked like models

    I think the term "political correct" is asinine.

    I'm worse than that, and a liar too, just for good measure. I'm so bad that even the rest of the bad won't claim me. I do PC stuff just to get away with the bad stuff behind everybody's back.

    Why would it be odd to see a male flight attendent today when in your mom's day they were women?

    This post appears to be dishonest so yes, you are a liar as evidenced by this post which is one big lie... but I like how you insult me all over the place for no reason. Real class...

    Thank you. I have standards. They're on the back of one of my trucks, but I have 'em. Qualms, too. I keep those in a little wooden box under the Krishnamurti books.

    Nice talking to and the irrelevancy of your insults...

    Thoughts....
    "Political correctness" is a right-wing snarl word for "social pressure."

    People on both the left and the right apply extreme social pressures to get their way, to stifle dissent (especially within their own groupings), to block discussion or debate of certain topics. Almost everyone has a blind spot in this respect.

    E.g. There should be no question that if a student at Liberty University made public statements in favor of SSM, they would be sanctioned, punished and possibly expelled. (I don't know if they'd be harassed by other students, but it is certainly possible.) If a student at UC Berkeley made public statements against SSM, they would be ostracized and probably harassed, but not sanctioned, punished or expelled unless they violated university rules.

    The idea that this rather basic human tendency is somehow inextricably linked to one specific political persuasion is slightly ridiculous.
