Politically Correct...you could not make it up...

Now I've started the 30 day challenge, it occurred to me that I need subjects to write about.... instant quandary, I mean 30 hubs is a lot of subjects, however fortunately the world news provides stacks of subject matter, and today's winner is.....(rattle drum beat)

Political correctness in a mad world!

So, for our first wacky contestant, try this...

"A job centre has been slammed for refusing to display an advert for a 'reliable workers' - because it discriminated against unreliable applicants.

A Jobcentre Plus worker claimed that the word 'reliable' meant they could be sued for discriminating against unreliable workers."


Like the title says, you couldn't make it up, and if I had tried to suggest that as a factual story years ago any editor would have called it nonsense.

But it is fact in today's wacky world of loony lefty liberals.

This by the way from a Job Centre, where they are supposed to find jobs for the 2.8 million Brits that are unemployed, surely when that many bodies are available we should be able to stipulate who we want and how we want them to be?

I guess we can no longer advertise for honest people either, in case crooks start suing us for discrimination, or kind and considerate nannies for our children....must not risk offending the heartless bullies who might apply for a position as a child minder. It's small wonder that the UK is in the mess that it is in, they have been subjected to mind control for 12 years now and have become as fuddled as a rat in a vat of wine.

Candidate number two....

For the wacky news title, is about a nice couple of girls who became men and are now having a baby together..... using a homosexual friends sperm donation!

"A transgender couple have revealed they are expecting their first baby in a month’s time.

Scott Moore – thought to be only the second ‘pregnant man’ to go public – is due to give birth to a boy in February, with husband Thomas by his side.

The couple were both born girls and have undergone surgery to transform their sex."

Now apart from the fact that I'm not sure what they are, lesbians, homosexuals of just plain confused, it just looks so unwholesome....

The one thing they seem to have successfully removed from their original  female birth configuration is any aspect of feminine attractiveness.

Am I going crazy, or has the world gone mad?


Candidate number three....

Is the winner in my opinion, for sheer lunacy curtailed.

The peers of the House of Lords have just voted against a legal bill, a so called 'equality' bill, that would have made it illegal for the Church in the UK to refuse employment to homosexuals and transsexuals.

Now I have spend a good part of today writing (unpaid) for the Independent newspaper where the loony left have been protesting about this outbreak of sanity.

They seem to be totally infuriated that the Church should have this right, indeed they are incensed that anybody should have the right to not like anybody else, though they clearly show that they dislike people who believe in Christ.

Strange duality!

It has obvious ramifications if this lunacy is allowed to remain on the statute books, for then, in the name of equality, your local Community Relations Office in Brixton, a resoundingly black neighbourhood, could be sued by the first white racist BNP (British Nationalist Party) member to be brave enough to apply for the job of Community Relations Officer.

And they would win substantial damages....if they lived long enough.


When I grew up it was in a time when all our world maps in the classrooms were coloured mostly red, to show us proud English children the extent of 'our' empire.

Now I will admit that it was my generation that assisted Satan in pulling down the bastions of establishment and overturning social order in the 1960's, and relishing the discomfiture that it caused the rich old men in their private clubs.

Common sense ruled the day, and judges ruled upon matters in accordance with the fabled 'man on the top of a Clapham omnibus' which had been a standard of judgement for years.

If the 'normal' man would consider it permissible, and it did not challenge the social order, it was acceptable.

So we had the irony of a system where the schoolboy in his 'public school' at Eton or Rugby, could be buggered by the older boys, in almost a tradition, but homosexuality was still illegal, and therefore practised behind closed (and locked) doors. The judge that sentence the arrested homosexual, may very well have buggered him in Prep school!

Hypocrisy in extremis I agree, but now the social engineering has swung too far in the opposite direction, and what would have been considered totally unacceptable then is now almost a required fact in the current social scene.

Like I said, you could not make up today's news!

I comment with only this. The liberals don't seem to act like liberals at all. I've been tempted to call them the 'Conservative Left'. Why? If you look in the dictionary, liberalism is synonymous with tolerance, being open minded, and willing to change. Do the liberals do that? No, they're stuck on the left side, and refuse to budge!

Same thing with the conservative right.

And that second article you reported...that just befuddles me. I mean, for a woman to change into a man, but still become pregnant. I-umm...for once I'm speechless.

Still very fast!

I had to add the top photo, I'd forgotten and needed to find the most politically incorrect one I could, this one was NOT the most politically incorrect, but it was as far as I dared go!

Hey John, I don't know if you watch the show Family Guy, or not, but the section about the two wo-er-men who are married reminded me of a certain episode. The head patriarch of the family has to attend a woman's retreat, and when he comes home he's acting like a chick.

Up to the point where he tries to breast feed his own son, and freaks out over not getting his "period"

I just had to bring that up, because I find it hilarious.

Aye, 'tis odd to figure people out sometimes. I have run into many gays and several transgenders.

My dearly deceased Mom did tell me not to take it as affront when one (pretty new friend) in the process of trangendering told me about a "nose" operation and I found out *purely by accident* it was a different operation altogether!

I don't know and I won't judge. I did not know her (?) well at the time. Her co-workers were in the know and that was substantially a smaller town...

AguaSilver how about the phrase "Only thos interested need apply" Does this mean that if you are only curious, forget about it?? Your 30 day challenge is this something you set for yourself or is there some contest out there I haven't heard of??


aguasilver profile image

aguasilver 6 years ago from Malaga, Spain Author

Hi Dave,

"Only thos interested need apply" would seem to indicate don't bother unless you are, and in today's whacky world you could be infringing someone's rights by inferring that curiosity was an inappropriate attitude for the position.

No doubt you would be brought up in front of the equality commissioned in order to answer the charges levelled against you, and forced to sell your youngest daughter into slavery to pay the resultant fine and compensation to the curiously disinterested applicant!

The 30 day challenge is a regular feature, I'm trying it for the first time, which reminds me I must start today's effort!

Extremely entertaining and enlightening hub Aguasilver. It amazes me when liberalism wants all these freedoms that break every norm - including that which is natural - and yet they set about trying to legalize everything to do it. Morality just can't be legislated and neither can immorality. Sorry, I had to laugh, I was just thinking of Brendan Fraser playing Dudley DoRight, and how he had to break the rules when the evil took charge and made the rules. I think the world is coming close to that. Peace.

I have been spending mucho time on the forum of The Independent newspaper dealing with just this sort of thing, it's amazing!

It seems that those who want to force their concept of equality on me cannot see that this action forces inequality on me, for I am not equally able to resist their intentions!

John, good hub, I wish you well on the 30/30 challenge. Political correctness in the U.S. has hit a low blow for humanity's sake and your picture of the transgendered couple is just one tip of the ice burg. As for political correctness in today's standard makes me happy that I live where and how I do, like a monk?hermit and jokingly a Troll, as my bunker was made by a concrete box bridge crew using their bridge forms to pour a box in the ground and then cover it up with closed ends and a modified igloo entrance type tunnel. Off course! Everything used to describe any group is defined by them and to wander off and use any terminology is taboo, we live here like Sodom and Gomorrah and it is accepted by many as well as a mine field to do otherwise. I suppose God granted free will so I'll also respect their choice of where they end up. It's our duty to inform them and once they know the difference then it is all theirs.

Exactly Dusty, it's their problem once we have told them the truth, and I'm really glad about that, for some of them are as stubborn as a mule and as deaf as a post, blind as a bat, the metaphor's could flow long and hard to describe their poverty of belief!

Thanks for checking in, gotta try to start hub three now!

Well I try to follow the teachings of Christ- not the opinions of "spiritual leaders", not of other books so much in the Bible. I will not dwell on anyone's sexuality. However, with the insanity that is in this world today, I have to believe in birth control Two men are unsatisfied with the way they were born. They haven't faced enough grief to convince them of bringing another child into the world for their own manipulation. This is a hard confusing world enough. Yes- I have serious doubts of their ability to parent their own lives. They will create another in their image? If I were president of the world everyone would be forced to carry two means of birth control on them at all times and yes I would teach in some fashion of how children are born with the responsibilities required. Ah, but if I were president of the world....Thanks for another great hub.

You did a great job with this hub, I'm still laughing. I am always amazed at the close mindedness and lack of sensibility of both sides and would love to be a fly on the wall at their individual breakfast tables. Might be quite enlighening.

Hi Rope, Glad you found a laugh in it! - I can laugh also, but then I don't live in the UK, if I did, I'd probably cry!

Thanks for the visit.
