We are living in a world of political correctness run amuck. This commentary by John Cleese on Political Correctness is spot on.
My thought is that I would rather people not tone down their true thoughts or hide them behind politically correct statements. I’d rather see your true colors and beliefs so I know where the nastiness is, where the people I should steer clear of are. Forcing everyone to play nice and wrap their true selves in a polite and non-offensive cloak so that they aren’t upsetting doesn’t allow us to really see who we are dealing with. Political correctness does us, as a society, more harm than good.
