On "political correctness"..

“Politically correct” is just a term assholes came up with so they can dismiss people who have the nerve to want to be respected. Demanding not to be stereotyped is not political correctness, it’s a human right, and you are not some hero for refusing to respect people’s right to be treated like humans.”

— Dion Beary (via loveyourchaos)

1. It's called "correct" for a reason. It means the alternative is WRONG.

3. I used to say

That people who used the term 'PC' weren't worth having a conversation with. Then it became part of our Americana, and I 'lightened up' even used it myself on the rare occasion. But I basically agree. Scratch someone who complains about being 'political correct' and you're going to sniff an asshole of one variety or another
