While I can see good things about not labeling people.
One bad thing is that by not labeling, some don't get the help they need, or at least appropriate help.

It really effects freedom of speech and makes us look stupid to ourselves and the rest of the world.

It can be a tad extreme.....for example when you can't ask for a brown bread sandwich & black coffee without someone giving you a look of disapproval....seriously, really, if anyone is going to be racist are they going to use those things as insults?.....& saying things such as actor to cover any acting ppl.....where's the harm is saying actress it's not an insult to say someone is female when they are.....somehow the insult gets implied which is wrong & generalising pronouns doesn't solve that problem it merely avoids it
Wasn't there something yesterday....the word lunatic is to be banned?....more & more words become 'bad' words...eventually it'll be like walking on eggshells

You can call me, "Master Fisherman".

Yeah. Sometimes you gotta get really creative in some of these terms and offical descriptions. Some of them are so obtuse they actually sound more offensive than the "age old" term they are to replace.

Political Correctness
contradiction of terms
oxymoron
Anything political is contrived by people with contradictory motives in mind ::therefore:: correctness can not be stated unequivocally.

Lots of good points.
Yeah, I was thinking about how it affects racial relations and racism.
I think it might be bad for racism, could make it worse if people have to hold things in and resentment might build.

Is political correctness on the rise because the blacks don't want their feelings hurt?
Who started this mess anyway?

I don't know about the 'blacks'(lol), but I think it started with the hippies in the 60's.

Racism is sill alive, that's for sure-

They had to close the whole school down!
This is really sad, because in my humble opinion, Micronesian's, Palauans and Mashallese are, in general, some of the nicest people in the world. Their cultures have developed over centuries on tiny islands where everyone has to get along.

Let's face it. Political correctness pretty much boils down to upper class white liberals trying to do two things: keep anyone from ever being offended and make you feel like a bigot.
It was not my intension to offend you M69,
but if the shoe fits?

If I told you I were black, would that shut you up?

" I see you've noticed!" Very astute and perceptive of you M69.
Of course, it can't be explained 'on-here' but my
suspicions prevail.

A simple yea or no would suffice in place of the rhetoric.
