August 11th: P.C.


Is political correctness a useful concept, or does it stifle honest discussion?

While it allows people to focus on the facts, political correctness can also discourage people from thinking differently. While it’s okay to point out a person’s race and status in society, some things can be wrong to say because it can be disrespectful towards someone. In a way, political correctness can take away our freedom of speech.

I always tell people that if you don’t want anyone saying “things” about you, then don’t say judgemental things about other people. Don’t go around slandering others because you see other people doing it. Use your brain when you talk and… I’m straying away from the topic aren’t I? πŸ˜›

  1. No, I don’t think you are straying. Political correctness, I feel is imposed on us. you can’t say this or that, but usually not for the “pure” reasons that you are talking about in your second paragraph. I feel, and I could be wrong it happens daily, but if people were the way you describe in the second paragraph, we wouldn’t need/have political correctness.
