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)

Compensation and tribunals are not a substitute for common sense...
Why is it that we have to tiptoe around people that think that they have to be offended simply because somebody makes a reference to their colour or handicap?

Just for the record:

I don't care what fucking colour you are. Really, I don't. I hate some white people just as much as I hate some blacks.

I'm not religious. My mum is, and that's fine. I choose not to believe in a God and have therefore already accepted that I won't be going to heaven (or Hull for that matter).

Wheelchair users are a nuisance. It's not their fault, but then again nor is it mine. When I block a supermarket aisle (whilst slapping the kids legs or debating the beans vs spaghetti for tea for example) or a shop door then I expect people to get frustrated - it's normal . The UK is not very big, most of the buildings are many years old (from WAY before the invention of the wheelchair) and are therefore simply not designed for the Chorltons of the population. We're working on it, but bear with us as it's gonna take a while.

Indians.. why, oh why, is it that when I offer to work for you and offer my price for my effort, time and materials, is it that you have to alter the price for me? If I wanted to haggle, I would start at a price far higher than all of my competitors and then hope you're interested in playing a nice game of 'beat the quote' rather than going to them. I haven't the time for it, and don't want to risk losing business. Accept my quote, get a few others and then make a choice... not let me start work and then try to change the price!

Jews - I have never had a problem with Jews. You know exactly where you are with them.

Now I hate the term Nigger as much as the next man, but it has its place. I wouldn't call every black man a nigger no matter how dark he was - I feel it's all about the attitude of the individual. There is a difference between a white man and a Chav or Pikey for example. There are grades of men depending on their attitude to others, and as such I believe there should be various words to describe them. Maybe the next QOTW should be to suggest new ones if people are too scared to use t he old ones. As a point of interest, I sometimes call my (white) brother "nigger" when he borrows money and doesn't give it back.

Women - some of you are shit at driving and you are a pain in the arse for one week of every month. Now, I love my wife completely, but I have never sent her out to get tampons, chocolate and beer whilst I sit indoors choosing the nights telly viewing, you know? I know that I'm untidy and can't find the washing basket. I also know that the bath mat gives you verucas and must be avoided at all costs. The empty crisp packets are still on the sofa because I was drunk again last night and needed the food to replenish my energy after masturbating into the dishcloth whilst watching the ten minute freeview with the sound off...I could go on, but we all have things we hate about eachother - we should learn to accept them...

Children need beating. Not to within an inch of their lives, but more to break their spirit early as you would with, say, a puppy. Make them manageable and to let them know who's in charge. My children don't swear, answer back, steal from shops, have to be called to the headmasters office, throw things, insult people, abuse others, break things or anything else that Daily Mail readers are regularly up in arms about. There is a healthy respect in the family and it isn't because they got a therapy session and a cuddle when they fucked something up.

Profoundly deaf people - please, if you go to the toilet for a dump and there are hearing people nearby, bear in mind that just because you can't hear the straining noises that you are making, it does not mean you are not making them. I wouldn't wave my hands over the cubicle door at you if I went for one.

Blue badge holders - Okay, so you're disabled and need assistance - that's absolutely fine. Is it really acceptable, though, to park on the corner of junctions, in bus stops, on blind bends or on the pavement? Does common sense not prevail amongst you all? For our foreign friends (if I have any left after this) the blue badge scheme gives certain disabled people the right to park in areas otherwise deemed illegal or unsuitable. This is fine if, say, the car is parked in a no-parking area, but on a pedestrian crossing? Some people use the badges when there is no-one in the car that is disabled, simply to get a better parking space. Why? It's people like you that are giving disabled people a bad name.

Gays are ace. There isn't a single section of the community that has given birth to so many nicknames, insults or identities and that should be recognised! So, well done to all you queers, bumboys, shirt lifters, turd burglars, friends of dorothy, those good with colours, faggots, homos, dykes, carpet munchers, cock suckers, puffs, pouffs, poofs, oscar wildes, mincers, fairies and poo-pushers. We love you all.

Is anybody still reading this, or has a copy of this been sent to some Government department and I'm about to get my back doors kicked in...?

Alright I've stopped.

Rude names.
I´m a gay and i´d like to point out that you missed off "chutney ferret".
It sounds cute.
Hurrah for your opinions by the way.

Fuck Yes.

Humpty: Who's mum is a Wheelchair-Using, blue-badge holding shite driver.

However, she never parks in stupid areas.

EDIT: not sure about "breaking a kid's Spirit" though... I was given a few sound smacks as a kid, but only to highlight the fact that I'd crossed a serious line and broken a rule. NEVER to the point of physical damage... but just to the point of having an arse that smarts and the knowledge that I'd get the same if I was a little shit again.

Looking back on it, I now understand my dad's words "This hurts me too you know".

Sir, I would like to give you a pat on the back for you speak on behalf of every person who isn't involved in the PC making process.

Also, you missed out 'fudge packers'

Fuck you.
"Children need beating. Not to within an inch of their lives, but more to break their spirit early as you would with, say, a puppy. Make them manageable and to let them know who's in charge."

You complete cunt. My parents hit me and I was scared of them until I was 14. Beating someone with the intention of "breaking their spirit" is utterly reprehensible. Going by the rest of your post, you seem a fucking twat in every respect. I sincerely hope I never meet you.

This is satire right?
This is either a brilliant work of satire, or you really are a racist, misogynistic, homophobic, bigotted, child-beating arsehole.

This scares me a bit
The bit that scares me more though is the people saying "good on you" and "you speak for everyone".

I'm not a PC nut, but maybe a little respect for people? You say you don't differentiate between people, yet you say you call your brother a nigger if he takes money from you. Hypocrite slightly?

you are joking, yeah?

Agree with the massive majority of this.

I am completely against the idea of racism, it's so fucking ridiculous, it's quite funny (in theory). Think of it this way, racism at it's roots is basically "I have a different coloured skin to you, so I'm better". How fucking retarded can you get?

And as for the hitting kids, i think people misunderstand when you say about "breaking their spirit". To everyone else, he doesn't mean he wants to destroy them mentally, he sheerly means that children need discipline. It's a fact of life. I don't agree with violence against children, smacking the shit out of them, that's not right. But if i was out of line when i was younger, i was given a smack, and i wouldn't talk back to my dad afterwards, not through fear, through respect. Not like kids nowadays who will call childline because their parents won't let them go and hang round a rough council estate at 10pm. Don't blame the parents, i wasn't allowed to do that, and my kids won't allowed to be either.

Blue badge holders piss me off too, we used to have a blue badge in my Mum's last few months, we used it to get into the disabled spots. We always used to get shitloads of dirty looks because my mum wasn't (and i quote) "not that disabled". The woman couldn't walk 10 metres without a rest afterwards! For fuck sake.

But the amount of times non-blue badge holders would take up the disabled room, and you'd see a chavvy 21 year old who was using his mum's car sat in a spot, because he had his Mum's badge in there. It's fucking ridiculous.

Raaagh! Anger! I think something has been uncovered here. GAZ me if you think i should repost this in the topic, with extra ranting.

Hahahah yes, very clever.
