Here are some women who stand for an actual cause for actual reasons.
I’m not sure if everyone in the world (the United States especially) is legitimately retarded or not, but I’d just like to say that to be “politically correct”, which means to censor your way of thought, speech, or actions to prevent from offending anyone, is to do the opposite of the intended and indeed insult as well as offend the subject! How do you people NOT see this?
Did that fly right over your head? Yeah, it happens. Hold on, I’ll reiterate in layman’s terms: to be politically correct so as not to offend anyone (are you with me?), is actually offensive in its own. Didn’t get that? Let me put that in Internet-speak for you: Beeeeinggg PC is offenziveee -insert kitten picture-.
Don’t believe me? It’s alright. I understand because everything you’ve ever been taught up to this point declares that to be politically correct (PC) is the right way to be because not censoring yourself is just rude and makes you a mean jerk. Does that sound familiar? I bet it does. I’ll elaborate on how exactly it crumbles international relations as well as relations in our own nation.
Do you remember back when you were a little kid and you were at the store with your mom when you passed a deformed or mentally challenged person? What did your mother do when she caught you staring? She probably smacked you or pulled you along, whispering “Don’t stare!” so loudly in your ear that her words were heard by everyone within a three-aisle radius. By being so desperate not to offend the person who initially caught your attention, she accidentally brought everyone’s attention to the fact that this person was different. How much do you want to bet that person was offended, embarrassed, and hurt by this action?
That’s the perfect example of how political correctness works. You basically dehumanize someone until they feel like another species. Please, contradict me. I dare you.
I’ve been the subject of PC behavior. I may be white, but that doesn’t mean people can’t treat me “differently”. I’ve been subjected to people being “politically correct” to me just because I’m different in several ways. I’m pierced, I’m curvy, and I’m quite well-endowed in the chest area, so when people see me walking down the street, they stare, or try not to. I’m proud of who I am, but I wasn’t always. I used to shy away from their gaze and pretend I didn’t notice that they had singled me out as different and weird. I am different and weird, but I couldn’t accept that back then.
What I mean is, I disliked women hissing through their teeth for their staring children to look away while smiling at me. I felt like a freak, and not the fun kind. I hated myself for a long time because of this, and finally, I realized, there’s nothing wrong with me. Not a thing. They are the ones with the problem. They can’t handle that I’m the single most amazing person ever.
Oh yes, I am that great. Yes, it’s okay to bow in my presence.
But back to the PC thing. I find it so fucking ignorant to give someone special treatment because they’re different. It’s like coddling: in your attempt to be nice and proper, you end up damaging them with your ignorance. Kids who are coddled turn out to be total prats because they grow up expecting everyone to be like their parents and cater to their every whim. People who are subjected to your political correctness find themselves at one side of the spectrum or the other: faultless and untouchable or alien because they’re not exactly the same as you.
Political correctness doesn’t combat intolerance; it is intolerance. It is everything it claims to oppose. To be PC is to defy the definition of equality.
I bring this up because I was browsing through some news articles when I found this: http://news.yahoo.com/kansas-lawmakers-pass-effective-ban-islamic-law-221706327.html . Now if you read it, and I mean do more than skim the page for pictures of kittens or the aliens from Jersey Shore, you’ll see the page is tattooed with political correctness, from the quotes to how the author worded it. It’s full of bias just because it tries to act unbiased.
I’m so sick of people acting like they have to treat certain people like they’re a fucking ticking time bomb. It’s probably the single rudest thing someone can do to another human. In all seriousness, just fuckin’ stare at me. Get it out of the way. Hell, you can even stop me and ask me how I got my dermal anchors done and where. I’m cool with that. Just don’t treat me like a fucking leper. I’m so sick of your collective ignorance. Think for yourself or off yourself. It’s that simple.
