I agree with you about rudeness. To many people are obnoxious with their opinions. I always try to keep an even tone with people. If they don't respect my opinions that fine. They are entitled to my opinions just as I am entitled to mine.
I am afraid, I must disagree. Being politically correct does not always mean respectful. It means going along with the prevailing norms. At one time it was politically correct to treat black people as inferior. That was the norm, but it was not right

Evidently my neighbor who's three year old little girl was playing in the middle of the street barefoot this morning (at 36 degrees) while he tokes on his medical marijuana in the house feels that I was offensive when I called the police. LOL

Group think is a good explanation. Unfortunately, the prevailing group may not be the best group for determining what is correct and what is incorrect or improper.
I agree with you on speaking the truth. Recently I was told it wasn't politically correct to call out a local politician in a public meeting. Even though what he was doing was completely illegal.
I do not disagree with you, but I just see it as an effort to keep individuals from being honest with expressing their views and opinions. I am not approving offensive language, but I do support the right to disagree--hope we can agree on that.
I agree with Larry and CollegeDad. Many people cannot agree to disagree in certain situations and when there is wrongdoing involved as CollegeDad said, many choose to ignore it hope it goes away on it's own. Sad.

Larry......Bravo! You have spoken for me. My Dad used the term, "Fence riders"......someone always ready to jump to EITHER side of an issue, depending upon WHO they're trying to please. I IGNORE those folks entirely!
