Does anybody else think that political correctness these days is overboard? Where i live, you can't play "dodgeball" in gym anymore because it promotes violence. a teacher got sued for saying dodgeball. thats just stupid

Yeah my school too. It's bullshit. We used to call it something like pinball which was the same thing but that got banned too.

Only in America.

And while I hate that phrase I think it applies perfectly here.

Argh, I could go on all day about PCness.

Basically, it is really backwards, because though they are "trying" to keep anyone from descriminating or making generalizations about groups, they are doing it themselves by constantly making race/culture/etc into big issues.

Dodgeball FTW.

It's actually not PC to say "politically correct" anymore. The whole idea is causing a snowball effect.

I saw, we make flags with words like "Fuck" and "Dago", then impale all these overly sensitive idiots.

In all seriousness though, this country blows whale ass.

Yeah, that is the PC issue that really gets to me. It is totally pointless. Noone, I mean NOONE is offended when they see a Christmas tree or a sign that says "Merry Christmas". Ben Stein, a Jew, said himself that he wasn't bothered by it and actually liked it because it was a sign that we could all come together that part of the year. You know who thinks people get offended by this? Fat, white, pseudo-intellectual liberal politicians.

PC is overboard as hell, and I'm pretty liberal. I mean, the word 'dodgeball' being banned?!

Political correctness is for fags. Oops, did I say that? I meant that it's for the reproductively challenged.

I actually kinda like it where I live. I mean sure, there are always gonna be some people who are pc, but there aren't too many where I live...except for the pseudo-artsy/pseudo-intellectual, pretentious, "I'm too indy to like anything that anybody else has ever liked" crowd, but I make fun of them most of the time anyway, and nobody (well, nobody but the pseudo-intellectuals, but their opinion doesn't matter) seems to take offense or care really.
Thus sayeth the Lord.

And all these freakin immigrants who move here, and think they own the place.
Down here in Mississippi, the NCAA(college sports) wont let us host post season games or tournements(sp?) because we have the rebel flag in our state flag. One coach said that the NCAA should be called the NCAAPC instead.
O and also there supposedly supposed to change the name of Mississippis oldest university,The University of Mississippi,aka Ole Miss Rebels, because apparently "Rebel" is racist. Even tho half or more of the people who go there are black.

It's kind of funny, because ALMOST all of my political beliefs identify as VERY left-wing, just incidentally. But the whole PC thing pisses me off. A lot of typically "left-wing" (I suppose I can say "liberal" for you French-revolution-hating Americans) are mostly just dumb and annoying, and this is why. In fact, hell, a lot of my posts here are more-than-necessarily about political correctness.

You should be able to describe things as they actually are. It's dishonest if you don't. If you break your leg you really are just "disabled", you have less abilities in regard to things one normally does with their legs.

Political Correctness isn't near as bad as you panicking masses make it out to be.

For example, in Australia there may have been one private kindergarten which stopped singing "bah bah black sheep", but Today Tonight (One of Australia's most laughably shit Current Affairs shows) reports that "EVIL PC'ers have made every single school in the known universe stop singing the song, OMG multiculturalism has FAILED!!111!1!". Soon, in conversation, you hear idiots quoting it as fact.

Then, even funnier, people start blaming immigrants for the non-existent changes, despite the fact that immigrants haven't complained about the issue, and that any widespread change would be decided by panicky business managers.

If you can't say 'dodgeball', it isn't political correctness (people aren't offended by the word 'dodge' anyway) but just stupidity on behalf of your teachers.

Chewing Gum is banned in Singapore.

That isn't PC-ness you idiot, that's to keep the streets clean.

Half of you don't even know what the term means.

excuse me, but what race is a "kyke"


Offensive term for Jew.
