I think people say we have become "too PC" unless it's something that relates to them. Then they are the first to get offended.

if you had to ask the question, you already knew the answer.

yes we are too sensitive and reactionary to all the wrong things
yet we are not proactive in taking care of the important things we should.
all hot air and all the big talk in the world doesnt get much done
between all the special interest groups and everyone getting their little feelers hurt or offended, boo frikkin hoo.
suck it up , get on with life, get busy doing something, anything but complaining!

"-Can a man still open a door for a woman, or is that trying to assert dominance over her and diminishing her equality? (BTW.. have had at least two times I can recall where a woman said "i can open my own door" in a very abrupt way) "

I have had the same thing happen to me and I respond each time that my mother raised me to open doors for ladies and I will continue to do so as long as I damn well choose, if you don't like it feel free to turn around and walk away, you aren't taking away my choice to be polite because it offends you. Full disclosure, I tend to hold the door open for everyone, man or woman.


This is insane. Any woman who doesn't like a guy being nice, a gentleman and opening the door for them needs to get their head outta their ass! Would they rather have a guy slam it in their face? Where I come from guys never open car doors for you...

As someone raised in the US, but living outside the US, OMG Americans are freaking sensitive about everything. It's like, you can't ask someone any personal questions whatsoever because you might remind them of unpleasant stuff. Here, a cab driver will ask you if you're married, and if you say no, they'll ask why not. People also start asking after about a year of marriage why you haven't started having kids yet.


I've noticed this about people from Europe or other parts of the world, too. They're not as ... I don't know... tip-toey.

I don't play the PC game. If people don't like what I have to say, don't listen.

I love that kids now have to say "Criss Cross apple sauce" because you can't say Indian Style anymore.

Unreal....

Okay yes, but the minute you start complaining about "society" you might as well trade in your big boy pants for some tie dye capri pants and a bong

I think you will find many many people who say YES on a fitness website. This demographic takes responsibility for their own actions so that correlates. It is those that refuse to take responsibility that are so sensitive to this PC BS.

American yes, rest of the world seems fine.

One of the sexiest things is when a man opens the door for me. Whether it's a car door, building, whatever. I don't want to lose those little things. Courtesy should still be alive & well!

Yes. Period.
December 4, 2012 8:25 AM
Yes.
And I have no filter. So I'm just a little bit concerned for what my kids are gonna repeat in school. Heh. Either they're gonna be *realllly* popular...or they're gonna get in a LOT of trouble. I'd bet on both. *shrugs*

I'm only Politically Incorrect at work. Everywhere else I'm just me. No such thing as Politcal Correctnes outside of work or politics.

Politically Correctness is a term used for whiny *kittys* that need their *poo* sugar coated!!
** = for you reporters
December 4, 2012 8:37 AM
Yes this society is much more sensitive than it ought to be.

That said, not being a d*ck never killed anybody. Generally treating people with respect takes care of most of that stuff.

-can you say a person is bald or balding? (if no, can you then say someone has nice hair, as that may offend the bald/balding person that may overhear)

Why would you say someone is bald or balding? Why couldn't you pay someone a compliment on their hair?
QUOTE:
-Is it OK that smokers treating the world as their ash tray

No. And I know smokers who would say no.
QUOTE:
-What about people playing games on a smart phone (sound effects enabled) or having very long chats about nothing while in an otherwise quiet area.

That's rude.
QUOTE:
-What about DJ Jazzy Dillon has the windows of moms car down blasting music with lyrics not suited for children

Not cool
QUOTE:
-Can a man still open a door for a woman

My guess is more women are thankful than angry about this.
QUOTE:
-BTW. this makes no sense to me.. a person did not "DO" anything to be a certain height, so why does it matter?

A person didn't "DO" anything to be ugly, but you shouldn't tell them that.
QUOTE:
-If a passenger on a flight does not follow reasonable standards of hygiene, should a fellow passenger or flight crew be allowed to say/do anything, or should the fellow passengers be expected to grin and bear it?

Sucks for you if your seat buddy has BO.
QUOTE:
-what if a person decides that a word offends them, even if it is non-offensive to everyone else? can that one person have the power to change everyone around them and force them to delete that word from use?

Personally, if you told me the word "blue" offended you for whatever reason, I wouldn't use it around you.
QUOTE:
-can you say that a person is fat (stout, overweight, heavy) or is it forbidden to describe their physical appearance.

Why criticize people at all?
QUOTE:
-can you say someone is skinny (at the risk of upsetting them if they have issues with eating disorders)

I don't think you need to use the word skinny.

All of this, to me it's just common sense. And not being a d*ck.
