This is a question Political Correctness Gone Mad

Freddy Woo writes: "I once worked on an animation to help highlight the issues homeless people face in winter. The client was happy with the work, then a note came back that the ethnic mix of the characters were wrong. These were cartoon characters. They weren't meant to be ethnically anything, but we were forced to make one of them brown, at the cost of about 10k to the charity. This is how your donations are spent. Wisely as you can see."

How has PC affected you? (Please add your own tales - not five-year-old news stories cut-and-pasted from other websites)

Is it really that difficult
to try to consider how the way you speak and act might impact others. Because that is all that political correctness is.

All this other stuff (95% of which is rubbish - you can say blackboard, and ask for white coffee and celebrate christmas all you like without getting into any trouble anywhere) is just people being idiots - and them being idiots has been turned into propaganda against what is a pretty good idea:


More on topic, I once got punched in the face for calling a friend of mine who had one leg hopalong. Yay for radical student politics!

We get the idea of being nice. We just hate it when it's being taken too far.

Too right
The simple rules should be:

1) Be nice to people
2) But don't be a wanker when it comes to interpreting Rule 1
