Political correctness sucks. by DaBair Political correctness sucks. by DaBair
The whole debate over political correctness was a big thing in the 90s. Now it's come back with a vengeance, assisted by that pathetic excuse of a website Tumblr with its rabid SJW contingent (who also populate crap "websites" like RationalWiki and SJWiki) and their caveats like "check your privilege", "trigger words", "microaggressions", and in extreme cases, "die cis scum".

For example, back in 2005 you could make a joke about a man wearing a dress and everyone would laugh along with it. Nowadays such a joke would be considered "transphobic". A lot of comedians such as Jerry Seinfeld are actually boycotting colleges because staff and students take offense to their jokes and then ask them not to come back. We get non-gamer women like Anita Sarkeesian ranting and raving about the portrayal of women in video games, all the while cherry-picking examples to use. These days, everything is considered racist, sexist, ableist, homophobic, transphobic, or any combination of two or more of these.

I mean, it's common decency to respect a Muslim woman's right to wear a hijab, or not to call a black person the N word, but it's completely ridiculous if we have to call kids "purple penguins" (as one school in Nebraska did), tell Santas not to say "ho ho ho" because it's "sexist", or if kids can't wear American flag T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo. (BTW, Cinco de Mayo isn't even that big in Mexico.) I hate now that the word "retarded" is being treated as the equivalent of the N word - I'm disabled and I don't find it offensive. The PC police don't ask our opinions - they just assume we all find it offensive.

Not all minority people are easily offended by everything. I'm bisexual and I don't care if some people don't support gay marriage. Not everyone is going to have enlightened views on every subject. If you don't like someone's homophobic views, just don't listen to them. Plenty of minorities admit that there's problems within their communities. It's perfectly normal to criticize one's own community.

Please, enough with this PC garbage.


Keep your comments mature or else I'll have to disable them.

I feel like political correctness makes people look way too in to the smallest things and turns it into a big deal when really its not. Anything can be offensive,racist,homophobic,sexist, you name it!

I do my best to respect, or at least tolerate, other religions or beliefs, but this is quite indeed taking things way to far

There was even some idiots that banned Christmas decorations because they feared it will offend Muslims.

I know...

I'm afraid of political correctness spreading to my area. Luckily, where I live most Muslims are well-integrated and don't give a crap about what non-Muslims are doing. Still, I know a number of people my age offline who has SJW tendencies, and I live in New York, a blue state (although I do live on Long Island, which is more conservative than the city). Not trying to bash blue states, but I feel like blue states are more susceptible to PC influence.

I agree. Political correctness is one of the nastier/dirtiest/most false things ever. ^^
That's one of the reasons why I hate politics, and I hate politically correct media/press. World is getting more crazy as time goes by, so sad...

I believe in treating people with respect, but I also think we should not sugar coat things to ridiculous PC extremes.

As a tumblr user, I don't bump to those so-called SJW clowns. I only go on Tumblr to look at Daria (hence my Tumblr username).

DaBair, I'm with you on this. Political Correctness sucks and it's depressing to think this is the world we live.

Remember if you ever need someone to talk too I'm open. You should never feel alone just because PC bullies snap at you.

SJW actually used to mean "self-righteous bastard who uses the shield of political activism to cover up their underlying, and possibly not-so-underlying, bigotry". Nowadays it just means "anybody who cares about human rights and speak on said issue."
People who say things like "political correctness gone mad" or "political correctness has gone too far" are very embarrassing. Call me when "political correctness" (whatever the fuck that even means) results in more, not less, oppression of the groups of people that society is constantly shitting on. Annoyed cisgender, heterosexual, white, or able-bodied/minded people do not count btw.
And one person belonging to a minority not caring about issues that affect the minority they belong to doesn't mean diddly shit. Yeah, cool, you're chill with people being against gays getting married, you want a medal? How about the countless other LGBT+ people who have been fighting for the right for years? It's easy to ignore homophobic views when they don't directly affect your life, which they don't seem to considering how apathetic you are to the issue. You being disabled also doesn't negate the effects of anti-disabled slurs. No, the r word isn't as bad as the n word, but it's still used to dehumanized and dump on mentally disabled people.
And if I hear one more person refer to trigger warnings as "political correctness gone mad" one more time I'm gonna piss myself in a fit of rage. If it's because they view it as a form of "censorship", I'll start pissing blood. Please don't make me piss blood.

They're promoting political correctness in the form of so-called "social justice".

when you push a good idea to its extremes, you cause another problem. 

it's not "a few dicks on social media", it's everywhere. movies are constantly being remade with women and non-white people and lgbta+ people in their casts. the movies are no good, but when people say "hey, these remakes are kinda shit", producers and marketers are joining the cult of political correctness and accusing people who have legitimate arguments against something being garbage (i.e the new Ghostbusters movie actually isn't very funny and one of the cast members was a TERF) of being misogynistic, racist, or lgbtaphobic. 

criticising a woman, a non-white person, or a lgbta+ person for saying something stupid will often earn you a lynch mob. I pointed out the hypocrisy of double standards within the lgbta+ community regarding sexuality/gender headcanons and the attitude towards asexuals/aromantics on more than one occasion, and i've been the victim of a small lynch mob for daring to point out that headcanons aren't representation, that many people who want to tear down stereotypes suddenly hold that shit up like the monkey in The Lion King if it vaguely proves a character as gay/bi/pan/trans, and that asexuals/aromantics are just as discriminated against and harmed by our current society as homosexuals/bisexuals/pansexuals, but are still shunned from lgbta+ spaces.

political correctness is no longer used to stop people from being dicks to women/non-white/lgbta+, it's used as an excuse to go on a witch hunt for single mistakes. 
if your agenda makes people afraid to speak out against shit that they know is wrong or disgusting out of fear of knowing that the person they're accusing isn't a cishet white man, then you're doing it so wrong that you make sonic boom look like a masterpiece of right ideas in comparison.
