I can't even type this with a straight face, pretending I carefully considered whether I should make myself available to this stranger. 48 hours after we met we were making the beast with two backs and oh heavens was it unbelievably amazing. So it's been 12 hours and I'm picking out our children's names
For instance: my dad is guilty of being "anti-PC" for the most part. White, middle-class, middle-aged, str8 dude. In the last couple of decades, our society has deemed it inappropriate to publicly make derogatory comments about women. Oh no, now Dad needs to keep his shitty sexism jokes to himself! How terrible! He can't walk around and freely distribute the words 'bitch' or 'cow' or 'cunt' - his life is ruined!!!
That's honestly how I feel about most anti-PC arguments.
As far as I'm concerned, political correctness doesn't 'go too far' in most cases because it rarely affects me!! I still have freedom of speech. I don't own any television networks or film studios, so I have NO say over how they conduct themselves (except with my purchasing power). The only reason folks get mad about "PC Snowflakes" is bc they suddenly realize that they might offend someone & face real-world consequences.
My parents intentionally try to start Social Justice discourse with me by starting sentences with, "What do you think about [insert topical subject]?"
Lately my response has been, "I don't care. It doesn't affect you or me whatsoever."
It truly takes the wind out of their sails. They want me to agree that 'political correctness has gone too far' but forreal removing certain Christmas songs from radio playlists Does Not Matter To Me At All.
Just hangin out ; I make myself laugh
