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)

An important point...
The people who put your shopping in a bag at the supermarket checkout are called customer support officers or something similarly ridiculous.

This is something I discovered after the beautiful Indian lady loading up my bags overheard me say the following on my mobile:

"I'll be there in a minute, I'm just waiting for this packky girl to finish up..."

When making up your own job titles for people, do take care to think through all the alternative meanings.
