I'm rarely PC. I'm polite, but I don't gloss over things because it might offend somebody. I am only PC (or at least I choose my words carefully) when the topic of discussion is physical or mental disabilities, as I've been personally affected by those issues both directly and indirectly. For example, I will never use the words "retard" or "retarded" in a pejorative way, unlike many other people who do. It's basically a slur and is as unacceptable as the N word to me.
Other than that, I tell it like it is. I say it politely and fairly which is way more important to me than being PC about everything.1

politically correct need to die away from me.
And these kinds of people always have to make it known that they are in no way at all racist, sexist, anti-gay etc etc to everyone around them. -_- Like a defense mechanism just in case someone tries to hurt them.
Its stupid and just makes everything boring. With political correctness Good Bye South Park0
