1st off... I'm registered as independent. Neither Republican nor Liberal, so it has nothing to do with that. As times are changing and are population conitnues to grow, I've noticed over the last decade that US is becoming extremely politically correct in almost every aspect (i believe it has a lot to do with technology, but thats another topic). I believe there was polls done a while back by the media that about 70% of Americans believe we are becoming too politcally correct, 20% said were weren't politically correct enough, and the 10% said were fine as is. I guess I fall under the majority of that poll and want to know what you guys think.
I'm sorry but I think people are becoming too thin skinned. People need to take accountability for their own feelings. I made the same mistake myself, I wasn't accountable for the way I react to other people's comments. This forum is a perfect example seen everyday of it. You unintentionally say one thing and is blown out of proportion by the receiver as if you intended to hurt that person's feelings. Even if someone did try to hurt your feelings, doesn't mean you have no control over it. For example; The moderators will lock topics under religious beliefs because of "being politically correct" when it should be a free topic to discuss without other people getting butt hurt because someone else doesn't agree. Or when muslim want to build a structure right next to 911 to make a statement, and we have to allow them to be politically correct.
I have to deal with it all the time at work beause I have work with the public and I think I am just venting. sorry.
