Well said. I agree completely with your distaste for extreme political correctness. Like I always say, "it's not a stereotype if it's true."

I'm so sick of it being dictated to me everywhere from media to schools to work to now even a programming language list. People need thicker skins. If you are so easily offended, then block that person's email from your mailbox. It's called the 1st Amendment. I may not agree with, or even like the things you say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it -- whatever it is! I don't agree with radical Muslims wanting to kill me either, but I'll defend their right to protest and say whatever they want (as long as it's true!). Same goes for KKK or any other extremist group. > > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_Amendment_to_the_United_States_Constitution > > Ross Perot said it best, "every time you pass a new law, you give up some of your freedoms". > And this P.C. crap is just an un-official "law" that is being imposed on people. > > People aren't "visually impaired", they are "blind". They're not "dwarfs" or "little people", they're "midgets". A "retard" is "handicapped" and isn't "mentally challenged". (there, how many people did I just offend?) DEAL WITH IT. I have a "big nose" and I'm "balding" from Alopecia -- I'm not "olfactory gifted" or "follicly deficient" either.

If you don't like your stereotype, then collectively as a people, you need to change it. "we" didn’t make up your stereotype, "you" did!
