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)

First post, please be gentle...
I was studying Information Sciences at was then called the University of North London. We were in the middle of a class explaining the cultural biases of the Dewey decimal system (staying awake was the requisite for passing). In a class that was approximately 80% black the lecturer told us all that black people preferred to be called 'people of colour'. You can imagine the farce that ensued when the aforementioned 80% of the class told him that actually they preferred being called black and the lecturer decided to argue his point.

EDIT: (as length seems important round here)
We didn't get to go to the student bar in time for happy hour
