I recently posted a question referring to the Instagram "row" between Kylie Jenner and Amandla Stenberg over a hairstyle. I want to write a shortish MyTake on how we should get rid of Political Correctness (PC) altogether.
"PC is destroying the very fabric of society. Never before in history have people been so afraid to stand up against absurdity for fear of being labelled a racist, a homophobe, or a bigot. Get rid of PC. Let's get the people talking again."
Let that sink in.
"Politically correct - A term used for whiney, overly-sensitive pansies who need everything sugar-coated for them".
You know what this reminds me of? It reminds me, of course, of my initial question regarding the Jenner vs Stenberg feud! How Stenberg, "over-sensitively" overreacted to someone's new choice of hairstyle.
We need to step away from the "I don't want to offend anyone" and start speaking our minds.
Before you say anything, ask yourself this: Is what I'm about to say deliberately intended to offend?
If you’re intentionally trying to offend someone, then ok, keep your mouth shut because your intent is to cause harm and do no good.
However, if you have something to say because it’s what you truly believe…it’s who you are…it defines you THEN SAY IT. Don’t be a jerk about it, but stop stop walking around on egg shells being a shell of yourself. Why are you worried about offending someone who’s only concern is their own feelings because they are too immature to respect the fact that you have a right to think, feel and say what you want according to your own beliefs and values.
It’s your right to say whatever you want, whenever you want. It’s your right to speak an opposing viewpoint to me or anyone else. However, it is NOT YOUR RIGHT to silence me or anyone else just because you’re offended by what I say.
Safe to say, I totally disagree with transgenderism. I do not wish them harm, but I justt don't believe they are even traped in another body. I think Bruce Jenner is doing this transition solely for the purpose of media attention and money.
P.S This site has to be the worse site for Political Correctness. It seems every time someone says something controversial, or something someone doesn't agree with, they get insulted and ridiculed. Fact is, like I've stated above, people are allowed to speak their word/opinion so long as it doesn't insult/attack someone on personal terms.
If you disagree with someone's opinion just AGREE TO DISAGREE and move on.
