That one really took off, too, if I recall. /sarc
But as I recall, a lot of conservatives thought it was dumb because it never went much further than a few restaurants and the capital café.
A lot of progressives think that things labeled as left wing "political correctness" are dumb too, does that mean that those things are therefore not examples of PC or are there different standards?

At a recent 4H event, my son received a red ribbon (2nd place) for his bunny. All the other kids in his age group had received blue (1st place) ribbons.
After the match, I (and my son) went to the judge and I had my son shake her hand and thank her for participating and judging.
She was shocked. She honestly stated that she thought we were going to complain and attack her for awarding my son a lesser ribbon.
I stated that he was here to learn. She then took my son aside and spent nearly an hour with him, showing him what he did wrong and tutoring him on the right way to show his bunny.
He came away knowing more, and I could not be prouder of him.

I'm sorry but some people just don't like getting made fun/stereotyped for things they can't change (nationality,gender,sexuality,race) . It seems the only people scared of political correctness are the dominant social and culture group in America who feel they need to make fun of people's differences.
