On Political Correctness

I have often heard it said by folks (usually ones that use PC as a pejorative) that politically correct speech is a club that is used to protect the delicate feelings of those that can't face the real world. I look at it differently. I think of it as simply being the recognition that my feelings might not be the only ones that matter and so I should think about what words I am using because someone else might be hurt by my words.

In other words, I think of it as not acting like a child and accepting that it isn't always about me.

Not moderated but I do delete spam and I would rather that people not act like assholes.
