Crazy Lee Posted July 21, 2016 Share Posted July 21, 2016 I've always been a little cautious when I've heard conservatives/republicans complain about political correctness, because most of the time they are complaining about it, they're actually complaining that they can't be assholes without people calling them out for it. It goes like this: Right winger: "Gay people are all pedophiles." Intelligent person: "No they're not! You're a homophobe!" Right winger: "Oh noes, my speech is being oppressed by political correctness! I can't hate anymore! What will I do?" The typical mainstream right winger doesn't understand that people reacting negatively to their opinion is not political correctness, but a part of free speech. You can say whatever you want, even if it's stupid, sexist, hateful, homophobic, transphobic, or just you being a big dick, and people also have the free speech right to tell you off, tell you you're wrong, disagree with you, or tell you to shut up. Free speech goes both ways, and if you're offended by people disagreeing with you or calling you a biggot, you're just as big of a whiner as most tumblr users. .....but then there's this, that I saw on my FB news feed from an autism support page. Really? REALLY? Words like "Stupid" and "Dumb" and "insane" are ableist? Are you fucking kidding me?! Yea, in some ways our society IS becoming too politically cor.... just fucking stupid. You know a society has become truly first world and a little too well off if, instead of worrying about being bombed to death in some civil war, starving to death in a famine, being murdered or tortured for worshiping the wrong god, or getting some plague disease, you can sit in your parent's house on tumblr and whine about words being used too much. Yea, enjoy your "suffering". 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
