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 have a habit of referring to inanimate objects as 'bastard' when they aren't co-operating. Coffee too hot? "Bastard!" Sprouts won't boil fast enough, "For fuck's sake, you little green bastards!" Computer crashes? "You electric bastard!"

Working in the back of the shop one day, I was struggling to tie up a bin-bag, and told it it was a black bastard. I immediately realised the implication of what I just said and was grateful no-one overheard who was in a position to misconstrue.
