If you haven't seen the Meme, ... people sit in parks with a sign stating their opinion and invite others to join them to "Change My Mind!"

PC though demands that you change yours.

If that is what PC actually means then I am against it.
If it simply means some thoughtfulness for the sensitivities of others, then I am for it.


RE: PC Defined! - Di Wundrin - 03-08-2018 10:16 AM

The sensitivities of others are covered adequately by the simple application of good manners.

PC is it's own explanation . POLITICAL Correctness.
A mental tool to control the populace.

Propaganda is the hammer indeed. Now, just which side of politics thought up the idea of labelling progressive ideas "political correctness"? It was a brilliant piece of propaganda because it eliminates the need to actually debate issues. Just mutter PC and it is automatically demolished in the minds of the non progressive voters, the NTs.


RE: PC Defined! - Di Wundrin - 03-08-2018 05:36 PM

NTs??


RE: PC Defined! - Warri the Wombat - 03-08-2018 06:47 PM

NT is something I just invented.
It stands for Neanderthal Thinkers.
It is a response to being called PC.


RE: PC Defined! - Di Wundrin - 03-08-2018 08:55 PM

As opposed to Critical Thinkers? and ETs Emotional thinkers?

People who indulge in vilification aren't going to be affected by being told they're Politically Incorrect, all it indicates is that they had bogan parents who never taught them manners.

I can't abide a lot of people's beliefs and cultures and behaviours but it would never occur to me to attack them in public about it. That would be just rude, and stupid. I don't need political correctness to know the boundaries of plain polite discourse. ... some of the stuff I've written on forums notwithstanding. Blush

Well, we should all be very well acquainted with the one person we have to live with no matter what. It also means that I seldom surprise myself. WinkRolleyes

Fail Warri.

NT is now, and forever will be, No Thanks or Northern Territory.
