Political correctness is just what society is willing to accept. It is important for a society to have rules around what conduct is acceptable and what conduct isn't. Would you be ok with a man yelling obscenities at your children? I mean that isn't exactly a criminal offense. But as a society we would deem that behavior to be unacceptable. That is "political correctness" as some people like to call it.

You might not agree with what society deems to be right and wrong, but it is an important part of any society. Without any such rules in place society starts to break down. So I would say this could not be more wrong.

I think a society without any "political correctness" is just as bad as a society with full blown political correctness. the anti pc mindset seems to suffer from 2 fallacies. the all or nothing fallacy, and the slippery slope fallacy.

i think its great that we dont tolerate people walking around with nooses or kkk hoods. pc can certainly go too far, but its total absence is what defines savage, uncivilized societies.

and let us not forget that no form of PC is supported by government censorship, just social outcry by private citizens using their free speech. they may be wrong, but they still have the right to be wrong.

I'm by no means a fan of political correctness, but that's hyperbole if I've ever seen it

whether it was good or bad is debatable... however the claim that it "ruined society" sounds greatly exxagerated.
