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)

harry isn't alone - i get that reaction now and again. when same-sex marriages were first legalised here, a couple i know from south of the border flew up to get their rings on. other local friends threw a bash for them, and it coincided with a meetup with some straight guys who were in town, so they got invited to the party.

one of the hosts was feeling prankish so he told the gaymos that there were straight guys gathered in the parlour and one of them was a bit of a homophobe. cue the silly queens wandering in to look at the 'virgin' flesh and ask who the homophobe was. i, of course, piped up that it was me and got to put up with some silly fruit in a pirate shirt (!) trying to creep me out by sitting near me.

i think the hosts eventually told everyone i was queer.
