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)

I'm suddenly Asian?...
A few years back the company i worked for were producing a catalogue for a large electrical component manufacturer. For the front cover of said catalogue they decided to use a nice big group shot of some of their staff smiling and waving.

This would all be well and good... except for the fact that we were then asked to photoshop out a number of the genuine staff and replace them with a more 'ethnically diverse' mix of people using stock photography...

All this leads to some poor guy, all excited about having been asked to be on the cover of the new company catalogue that's being sent around the world... only to receive a copy find he's now a small Asian woman wearing a white lab coat!
