To start, I take issue with this statement.
This in actuality has almost nothing to do with my generation. The older folks are the ones calling all the shots, and to be honest, I don't think I
know a single person who would not think this situation is absurd.
Otherwise, HAHAHAHAHAHAHA, my god, this is hilarious. While I agree the WIAA statement is ridiculously stupid, this:
April Gehl, an honor’s student and basketball standout at Hilbert High School, suggested the WIAA should (let me put this delicately) eat
Is equally stupid. It just hurts the anti-PC crowd to be unnecessarily uncouth. Rather than portraying the fight as what it is supposed to be
(avoiding ridiculous restrictions on personal expression), it just makes it appear as assholes arguing for their right to be assholes without
suffering negative feedback. You don't convince someone that the current trend of PC is a bad thing by calling them a "sh*t-eating c*m-dumpster" or
some variant thereof.
However, this is still indeed becoming a genuine issue. One big problem is that people are finding it hard to differentiate between this kind of tosh
and general politeness (something that should
be the standard of conduct.)
Hereby, I propose this:
"Political Correctness" refers to types situations as above. Absurd "over-protectiveness", censorship-type actions. As the legal system has
"reasonable doubt", "PC-incidents" will be incidents wherein some level of muzzling is applied to expressions where it is "beyond reasonable doubt"
that anyone would actually care.
"Civility" refers to not using harsher ethnic/religious slurs and swear words, such as "n*gger, sh*thead, c*nt" so on and so forth.
Therefore, I may say that I am "for Civility" but "opposed to Political Correctness."
