Thread Name: BS: Political correctness
Subject: RE: BS: Political correctness
Most of what the press in the UK pick up on as 'political correctness', especially from the public sector, seems to me to reflect not 'progressive ideals' but the opposite - people who are not sure what might be "considered offensive, discriminatory, or judgmental" using silly vocabulary to be on the safe side. The 'we are not allowed to say that any more' crowd.
