Response to Nye Bevan (Reply #16)

Mon Jul 29, 2013, 05:32 PM

35. You're being dishonest. You lamented that people aren't called "crippled" anymore.

upset that political correctness has taken that word (and others) from you.

while imploring DUers to be "nice", you has a sad that we don't call kids "cripples" anymore, nor do we call people "illegal", etc.

but while you are adamant that we keep calling kids "crippled", we have to watch what we say about Lady Thatcher.

1. Like "crippled" becomes "handicapped" becomes "disabled" becomes "challenged" becomes

"differently abled".

Political correctness is tiresome.
