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)

This really is an interesting QOTW.

We all seem to be leaning away from PCness but society as a whole DOESN'T. Why is this?

As an employee of a v. large corporation that is PC'd to the nines I've often noted that black / lesbian / disabled / whatever people can be complete cnuts as well and we're being just as patronising to them by not recognising the fact. Why can't I call a bloke in a wheelchair a wanker if a wanker is what he is?
