I absolutely agree with you Nygdan.
However, I still feel it's an insult to my status as a 'single, white male
', to be continually told what I must and what I cannot say to
people who are not white, Christian or from this country.
Never in my wildest days would I be intentionally racist.
Neither would I be a Homophobe. I have a couple of friends who are gay.
Neither am I a Xenophobe. I like people wanting to come to my country and settle here and contribute to our way of life and our economy.
What I can't and don't like, is the way certain members of the heirarchy - Government or otherwise, who tell me not to do this or not to do that!
Another things that really
me offis the fact that we have to be nice to 'ladies'. I work with 4 women who can give as good as they take and
in two cases, they dish out more. Yet if I am heard swearing in front of them, I get carpeted and receive a verbal warning.
My boss has just gone through an inquiry because his PA is trying to work her ticket and has dredged up incidents that happened over 6 years ago.
When he reprimanded her for continually being late for work and for knocking off too early, she complains that he is harrassing her.
This PC nonsense has gone on for far too long. We, the common people, must try to put a stop to it.
