    PC through the eyes of an American

    I nicked this off a public debating page, seems that even with their constitutional bill of rights, Americans have to put up with the same shite as we do...

    "Contrite politeness is killing our country The only reason PC is a thing is to keep people dull, so that nothing will get done in this country, and the government can take all our power as a people that is supposed to be running things. We give them the power by being submissive. Do people really want to be called african american when they haven't even been to africa? Why would we not call something for what it is? THIS DOES NOT MEAN PEOPLE CAN SAY WHATEVER THEY WANT. It's not about allowing people being rude. It is about having the freedom to express what something is, without worrying about how others are offended. The people who get offended will usually find something to be offended about, so why can't the rest of us just accept the fact that they are always Debby Downers? Why is it wrong for us to have the freedom to say what is necessary? PC is what created the idea of HATE SPEECH in the first place. Do your research, and stop being ignorant."
    In accord with Nature’s Laws, nothing is more right than the preservation of one’s own race.

    The problem is not insensitive people, it is over sensitive people.

    I remember when Scope was called the Spastics Society who had their name changed because it was a slang word used by schoolchildren
    Everyone knew who they were and what they represented, I wonder how many now know what Scope represents
    BTW. Latest school children word is Gay, I can't wait for the LGBT members to kick off

    Not with the opposite sex.

    Anyway isn't "gay" the acceptable terminology used when referring to homosexuality?

    Why would they "kick off?" If they banned the word gay, what would they then call themselves?

    It's never ending!

    They would make up another PC word. See how the word niggger has been banned and then there was Negr0 and then it was black, then coloured and now BME. (Another bloody American acronym! - everything in America is an acronym these days.)

    It doesn't take much intelligence and/or perception to use acceptable words in context, or take notice of changing use. Nor does it take much intelligence and/or perception to intentionally choose words to offend. We can all make occasional mistakes as we go about our lives, but I've never found the meaning of an argument or debate hindered by the use of non-offending words...

    No I don't!

    If it is to be treated as normal, then they should just bloody well get on with it, like the rest of us.

    I do believe in equality, but once that has been achieved, that should be it.

    Otherwise it is not equality, it is a campaign to get better rights for so called "minorities" than us ordinary folk are afforded.
