Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rapidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of shit by the clean end.
It is not showing political correctness to call a mentally challenged individual "retarded".

originally, pc was an ideal democratic concept which helped to rid society of the racial and bigotted language of the extremist minority but now it has been abused by gays, non-christians, commies and other deviant liberal minorities to undermine the spoken words and traditional values and culture of the majority, so the minority won't be offended or "feel" out of place.
one of the worse example of political correctness was turning "Merry Christmas" into "Happy Holiday"

an overused attempt to get people to stop using biggoted slang. The use of the term black people is pretty much accepted in most communities anyway so why say should we have to say African American instead of black(why use most of what is seen as politiically correct anyway, eg mutt replaced by Mongrol).
Not all things that are associated with political correctness are necessary.

Some Ranter has it spot on. See their definition.
It started out as a morally correct and rational thing, but has gone way too far, just like many things in our society.
Why dont we all just shove leashes up our arses and sow our lips together because Freedom of speech is a myth.

Political-correctness is a very notorious method of conversation that, when used in argument, strips away free speech. In my opinion, it is for people who cannot think, and force politeness upon others.....NOT that politeness is bad by any means, but always correcting someone's way of communication is actually quite annoying.
The reason PC'ness is for people who can't think is because they refuse to use & accept the original word for various sakes. Although PC'ness is a polite form of conversation, it shouldn't have to be forced upon others, especially considering this nation's founding principles like free speech. Unfortunately, political-correctness is a very common element used in various arguments, such as stereotyping people, referring to a person's ethnicity, etc.

Overall, political-correctness is the biggest excuse since canned cheese.
War : Campaign (at least in an American sense)
French Fries : Freedom Fries
Tall Man : Man of Height
Fat Man : Man of Mass (or something like that)
Thug : Mean Person, Socially-Challenged
Retard : Mentally-Challenged
Blind : Visually-Challenged
Chinese : Oriental
Japanese : Oriental
Korean : Oriental
Oriental : Asian
Indian : Native American
Native American : (use tribe name)
Black : African-American
African-American : (n/a but still regarded as offensive)

....anything else?

politically correctness is often used to force someone else to comply with YOUR thinking. Example: Bill Clinton imposed a SIN TAX because HE/THEY could. Being extreme liberal, this was allowed to slide. Georgia's Governor Sonny Perdue ( a republican tax and spend Liberal ) passed a sin tax of his own and banned smoking in the work place, including large manufactoring plants, and any public gathering. He also manipulated the state worker's insurance to charge them an extra 40 dollars per month as punishment.

Now, I said all this.... Still paying attention***

Now the PC target is OBESITY. They have already change the thinking as to what is obese. What used to be twice normal body weight is now just 20 lbs. over normal body weight. Just 20 pounds overweight and someone will shout at you in McDonalds for eating a big mac. (This is already happening).

Soon, those 20lbs overweight will be paying more for airline tickets, health insurance, and the list goes on.

Then what will be next??? Blondes?? Brunettes?? Redheads?? or maybe those who have body odor.

Political Correctness is what will divide the USA again. There will be another split. Conservatives vs Liberals and the hot button issue is Political Correctness. Mark my words, people are talking about it.

Being a decent human being, and considering what you say to others, not saying derogatory terms and/or phrases.
Jeb: Explain Political Correctness to me.
Me: Think of a racial slur and never say it again.
Jeb: Oh.
