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)

Managed something similar
My car has black leather seats. It's one of the reasons why I bought it. They're dead comfy.

My mother came to stay with me for the night, so that me and Pink Goddess could go out.

First stop - collecting Pink Goddess from work. As we walk towards the car, she says "Where's your Mom?"

With a smile of triumph, I said "In the front of the car. Is this coz she is black?" We laughed.

Next stop, collecting Demigod. His mother says "Thought your Mom was coming over. Where is she?"

Could I do twice? I surely could! "In the front of the car," I said, again. "Is this cos she is black?"

The superbly filthy look I got from little one's mother warmed my heart for *weeks* :)
