Get over it! Seriously, why do people get their 'feelings hurt' so easily and so often? Why things so small as 'racial' slurs or name-calling
really affect to majority of the population? Slurs and names are just words and phrases. Does it really kill you to be cussed at? Will your life end
if everyone doesn't like you? Why do people care so much about what other think about them, especially if you don't even know them, or don't care
about them otherwise?
Why do people are people always getting into others business when it comes to things like 'hate crime', the so-called 'violence', and
name-calling? What do you care what others do, say or think? :bnghd: If I were to say something you don't agree with, why would anyone really give a
second thought and be offended when they do? It's come to the point where everyone is SO hyper-sensitive about EVERYTHING imaginable that it's
near-impossible to speak your mind. You can't voice your opinions or even speak FREELY [there's a concept!
] without worrying about hurting
someone’s feelings or being reprimanded for saying something that is offensive to at least one person. People are offended about a lot of stupid
stuff. If even one person is offended, it apparently MUST be banned.
This reminds me of that one South Park Christmas special where everything deemed 'offensive' was taken down, leaving their towns Christmas barren
and lifeless. And then they had the GALL to complain about how the kids play sucked without the things that 'offended' others.
Can we not live without having the PC police following our every action? And that's another funny ideal. Politically correct. Who came up with that
genius concept? It's becoming LAW now against things that are deemed 'inappropriate' by the government. We have NEVER had free speech in this
country as long as we are not allowed to say cuss words on TV, or even on websites like this. And on another note, why are cuss words even offensive
anyways? How stupid can a person be to let made up words make you all offended? :shk: Is it so difficult to just ignore racial slurs and look the
other way, thereby letting the idiot who fights with stupid words stew in his own?
But no. Not patriotic to call French fries, French huh? Much better to call them FREEDOM FRIES so they won't be confused with their twin from Paris.
PC is a war on the individuals right to have free unbounded thought. It's hearing-impaired, not deaf. Little people, not midget or dwarf (even though
they suffer from DWARFism). Even the popular 'African-American' term instead of 'black' is idiotic. Are you so ignorant to say that every
black-skinned person is from AFRICA and is American? There are no BLACK people in Britain who came from Jamaica? Please. And why must we bubble-wrap
children up to everything they see on TV, butt then charge them with finger-pointing crimes in the interest of 'homeland security'?
