P.C. This

A thought on political correctness:

People talk about being politically correct and politically incorrect. Many people, especially conservatives, feel that it is incorrect to be politically correct and correct to be politically incorrect. But this would make being politically incorrect politically correct, and being politically correct would become politically incorrect. Furthermore, what is politically correct, and thus incorrect, is often defined by those who are politically incorrect. Furthermore, those who are politically correct often strive to make politically correct look politically incorrect by calling that which is politically incorrect "politically correct" and thus incorrect. At some point, that which is correct becomes politically correct and thus politically incorrect, and eventually becomes incorrect, and thus politically incorrect, and - at last - correct again. And what's more, what is politically correct can be either correct or incorrect and what is politically incorrect can be either incorrect or correct.

So fuck it. I'm saying what I want, politically correct or not.

And that's the only way to go. If more people said what they mean, than the world would be a much easier place to get along in.

I have no clue what you're saying. But I think it may or may not be politically correct.
