Q: What is political correctness ?

Just interested in what you personally view as a definition?
I liked the following
Washington, D C
2120-September 1, 1945
To: D A MacArthur/C H Nimitz
From: H S Truman
Political Correctness is a doctrine, recently fostered by a delusional, illogical
minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the
proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of shit by the clean end!

This is an increasingly selfish world. China may be near the bottom, but the West is clearly catching up. Some people, including some in this forum, think they have the right to marginalize, insult, and otherwise behave pretty crappy to others. If PC has a negative conatation, its because it has been abused to the extent that it now undermines the principle it was supposed to represent. At the root of the problem is the word "correct". These days, there is no consensus on "correctness". People raised on foul language and poor manners have completely different ideas about what is correct than what has been classically considered to be "correct". Sometimes, I feel the uncouth have taken the majority position in this world. It is no wonder to me that they look down on "PC". To be "PC" is to be unselfish and empathetic: two rare qualities these days. Qualities that cant be enforced with laws.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
