Hmmmmmm...thoughts?--AJP "Like any weapon that is mishandled, PC can be dangerous. Truth is PC has become a double edged sword benefiting no one. Those who were supposed to benefit from the PC movement: feminists, people of color, the GLBT community, people with disabilities, etc. were once happy to claim the PC movement and demand that prejudicial language not be used. But, once people began stifling their speech, discrimination continued. It just went to the very PC, but very silent, underground world of innuendo, institutionalized segregation, racism, and homophobia. Stealth discrimination is rampant in our country, and the PC movement is the cloak of invisibility that hides it."

"Of course, the relentless invocations of “political correctness” are, in themselves, a means of stultifying debate. The underlying premise — made rather openly in this case — is that one should be able to express bigotry while being exempt from criticism that might make the person expressing the bigotry uncomfortable. And going along with this is the even sillier assumption that people who defend existing social privileges are the real iconoclasts. Please."
