    What has happened that everyone(America) has become so sensitive that you always have to watch what you say. You have to make sure that what ever you say, doesn't offend someone. People cant have opinions anymore it seems. From 'vertically challenged' to 'African American' to 'sanitation engineer'.

    Sanitation Engineer... that started as a joke, didn't it?

    I had another post that was real long and had lots of ranting and raving, but I erased it and changed my mind before I posted it. You guys would have thought I was nuts.

    I guess thats why people say I "can" be an a$$. Not to my face of course. I guess if you don't change with the times, the times need to change for you....er something. Anyway if you have to censor what it is you have to say/type, you need to hang out with diffrent people. I guess thats why I don't hold on to friends very long!? I'm with ya on the sensitivty issue Ken.

    Being politicly correct all started with some cry babys whining about not being treated fare. Wha-Fahken-wha My life hasn't been fair, but I didn't cry about it.

    I agree, some people just walk around mad all the time about what people say and they dont open thier minds and look into why it was said or why someone has that opinion. They would rather concentrate only on what they believe or own in thier own lives. I understand that.

    The world turns allot better on kindess to others /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Yup /forums/images/icons/smile.gif It usually gets me when I say something about x and people look at the words instead of the meaning. But, I guess I bear some responsibility to say what I mean in terms others can understand. It's frutrating though. I remember when I got my first job as a "landscape maintenance engineer", I thought it was going to be great until I found out it was pulling ivy off of trees and picking up trash.

    Although another "political correctness" that bothers me just as much is when elected officials do things for votes instead of doing what's right. I guess it's politicaly correct because it gets the votes, but it's so damn frustrating.

    Here's some food for thought:

    I'm tired of hearing how everyone's tired of political correctness. Let's just be done with it so noone complains about it anymore!

    Sure, it's been carried to far, but don't forget why it exists. Everyone gets all fired up if I call a gay guy a fag, yet everyone is tired of being politically correct. Unless of course, we're only supposed to be politically correct on what we feel like. Then that kinda defeats the purpose.

    I dunno, just felt like going against the flow today.

    I agree with Ratch. Political correctness sucks until it comes around to you.


    I hate PC and I hate it even more when people say they hate it, but scream PC all the time. /forums/images/icons/mad.gif

    I think...like a black guy getting mad about a highschool team called the 'coons' when they were named after racoons, not black people. They're more racist in my eyes.


    But lots of people don't have anything else to do but cry and moan.

    I am not crying and moaning about it. (If that was directed at me, I hope it was directed at the idiots that cry PC)

    I just cant stand that trun Indians complain abot the sports teams that are named after indians one way or another, Braves, Blackhawks, etc.

    I dont go around complaining about people that do this, but just wanted to mention this.

    I am tired of people yelling that stuff isnt PC. Maybe if more people get tired of this, it will calm down some and people will realize how utterly stupid they are being.

    No, I wasn't directing it at you. I was directing it at all the people who say pc sucks until it doesn't help them at all. Basically, the hypocrits.

    But also, people who scream and cry PC are wussies IMO for the most part (note that I put IMO so if it offended anyone, I can say, "it's just my opinion /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif")

    As a Land Surveyor, if someone was to call me some kind of Engineer, I WOULD be offended. Gotta be in the business to understand that probably. I'll just sit here and wait for some Engineers to start blasting me for that one /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    I sooo agree with you. One thing that burns me bad is that people complaining about the confederate flag and how they want it taken down. GRRR..... I could go on forever.

    I saw something funnier than hell in the paper a few weeks ago....... There is an inramural basketball team and CSU and there team is made up of Indians and their team name is the Whites. They have a picture of a 50's type average, middle of the road, typical white guy smoking a pipe ( you know the guy, he's on the poster that says BEER, HELPING WHITE GUYS DANCE or get laid or whatever it says) and the campus is in a complete uproar!! These guys are getting flack from every angle. I dunno, when I woke up this AM I was still in the United States, this is all becoming a sad state of affairs. Personally I thought it was pretty cool.

    What I don't understand is: when one black guy calls another one "******" it's okay, but if a white guy uses that word he's a racist. What's up with that ????
