Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

And your personal experience of being called a racist because you dared to disagree with President Obama (why is it nobody ever called him that?) somehow supercedes my experience of doing so a lot and never, not one time, being called that. So your constant assertions that "disagreeing with Obama me...

Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

I guess what about it, Cid? People are stupid all the time everywhere and in every group. I like that people taking something you don't like too far is Machiavellian, but people trying to take advantage of a mentality you believe in are just stupid people. Because what I asked you was the same ques...

Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

So while we're back here yet again, I have to ask those who believe political correctness is a problem, what about those many times when people cite "political correctness" to dislike something that absolutely isn't? I'm not just talking about people freaking out about women being characters in movi...

Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

Then it seems pretty cut-and-dried that they're violating their duties as a public institution. Either way, it'd be a problem if they had gotten away with it, rather than being reported on and made correctly into a laughingstock. That's the proper reaction and the one they received.

Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

Personally I wouldn't want a government that tells private institutions what they can and can't ask people to do or not do on their property. As that would be a violation of freedom of speech, I'd rather Pierce College do what they wish and people can tell them why they're being idiotic by not givin...

Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

Well I mean there's a school of thought among sports fans that you shouldn't be doing that stuff when the Nationals are eight runs ahead in the fourth, but there's nobody stopping you.

Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

By the way, this is getting heated and I'm sorry, but being that part of what's at issue here involves people being too easily offended in the eyes of many, it would be very PC of me to hold back and we don't want that. (Joking.) We're at loggerheads and have been for a while. I'm sorry if I made yo...

Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

Yea, and thats MY fucking fault? Because I THINK MY OWN THOUGHTS? No, it's the thought of people who think of things their opponents put under the banner of political correctness. Clearly. All our problems are the fault of people whose critics dismissively define them as bullies. That I mentioned r...

Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

Seriously, more of this wishy washy thought crime bullshit? I don't care if you feel offended, your line of argument is downright idiotic. You're right. "Both the left and right agree with me" doesn't sound like something he'd ever say. And he'd never try to overstep his boundaries, he's so respect...

You're basing your argument on some alternate definition of political correctness,
I was using yours.

So you're just going to keep ignoring me then. But what a good guy for "considering my point of view" even though you never came close to doing so.

Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

Because politically correct, the phrase, is inherently critical. It's a pejorative phrase. Yeah, it is what its critics say it is. Get over it. This is critical to my point that you continue to ignore because it suits you. How am I making it possible for the Trump administration to abuse their powe...

Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

Go on and tell me how I'm enabling them. See this is my problem: I have. For weeks. I've told you in great detail. Your refusal to consider this point in any way proves that this is a lie: It just takes a willingness to consider my viewpoint as valid. I’m confident that I understand where you are c...

Re: Political Correctness and Other Imaginary Menaces

Let's go back one week.... To where I still didn't say minorities. But you came up with that. I'm pretty sure the people that support the alt-right and Trump are the people that actually support them. Crazy, I know! And I'm not against free speech, but you've had absolutely no problem--none whatsoe...
