What does the term "politically correct" mean to you?


I was recently told that I needed to be "politically correct" in my statements. I won't elaborate here, but I have a strong opinion about folks who abuse social entitlement programs and this rubs some the wrong way. When someone says that I'm being "politically incorrect" the old saying "the truth hurts" comes to mind! What is your opinion of the term "politically correct"

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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!
