Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

I do appreciate that you refuse to acknowledge my experience in any way other than calling it dirty pool. It's not insulting at all. Since I have to take your assertions as fact to make you happy. I so badly wish you would address my point of view as even remotely valid. I don't get why you even en...

Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

Ah, I took my birthday off. Now I am 30, old and wise. :lol: Good intentions does not excuse the PC movement. It is easy to point an extreme example and say "Ah, but that is extreme, and an outlier!" and then dismiss it out of hand. But other people see the extreme examples, and they might not give ...

Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

To which I pointed out that I think you're making a few leaps in logic. Still do. Most notably, that the Democratic Party is splintering for that reason and not because the two large parties are massive umbrellas that have been destined for infighting for a long time. I've never said it is SOLELY r...

Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

You've never actually convinced me of the evils of professors. There's also no common thread to imply it's all organized, that PC Culture is some homogeneous thing that has a real agenda on which all its backers would agree. I've never tried to make this argument. You've yet to show me one instance...

Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

You have made dozens of posts trying to imply that political correctness is an imaginary menace, a non-issue, silly college kids with zero impact, or a fake issue being pumped by the alt-right to invigorate racists. (I eagerly await you telling me that I have misunderstood you, but this is a pretty ...

Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

I could ask the same of you. You've ignored everything I've said because the word "imaginary" is in the title. That's not debate. That's mocking. If you want to DISCUSS this, and CLEARLY YOU NEVER DID, then fine. But if you don't, why is it so useful to mock me while lecturing me at the same time? ...

Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

Imaginary = not real. I am of the opinion it's a real problem. Whether or not something is real is not something I tend to be flexible with. What is and is not real is not a semantic dance. Yes, you could have saved this thread a lot of pain if you had not titled it Imaginary Menace or perhaps had r...

Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

Your personal experience from this seems to be centered around people calling you racist in a political discussion, which you deemed unfair, and you thought that once they slapped that label on you it made it easy for them to dismiss what you said. That's actually never happened. In recent memory, ...

Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

You never did. You can keep saying you did, but you never did. You can go back and read our conversation. I don't really want to get into "Oh yes I DID take this seriously" vs "Nuhh uhhh you never listened to meee!" stuff. You have not taken an instant to consider this from my point of view, or a s...

You're very insulted that I engaged you in months of debate? OK.

Crocodile tears are a trope of PC culture and I don't give a shit about them.

Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

I'm not considering your point of view at all at this point. The debate is over. Fin. When you blatantly misrepresent what I have said - over MONTHS - and then don't even acknowledge it... seriously man why would I continue this? April 7th Of course, when I keep asking what the menace is, well at be...

Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

That doesn't sound like the earth-shattering problem you make it out to be. I've spent considerable time and effort explaining the various negative effects that PC culture has had, and how it has helped contribute to our current dismal political situation. You can go back and re-read my posts, I am...

Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

Here's a nice example of you not listening to me at all in this thread: April 7th Of course, when I keep asking what the menace is, well at best I get a long-winded conspiracy theory. Because the PC crowd are manipulators, out to create laws that actually destroy the first amendment. January 26th I ...

Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

Hell, I've been called some outright offensive stuff simply for being a Capitalist. Does that mean I need to just ignore all counterpoints to my worldview and write them off as much as possible? Personally, I find it much more important to try and bring the extreme person who believes extreme thing...
