I’m on my soapbox this morning regarding political correctness. It is just so wrong in so many ways. Look, if you have something to say just say it, don’t sugar coat it because someones feelings might get a little ruffled. We need to stop pandering to those who can’t bear to hear the truth.
It’s ridiculous to think we need to protect everyone’s sensative ears from every little word that is uttered. If you’re offended by free speech then you need to grow a backbone and toughen up. I for one will say what I want to say and if you don’t like it then don’t listen. We are turning into a nation of wimps who have no character. Speak your mind and let the chips fall where they may.
A criminal is a criminal, they are not behaviorally challenged. Failure is failure, it is not deferred success. An illegal alien is an illegal alien, they are not undocumented workers. Insane people are insane, they are not selectively perceptive. A junkie is a junkie, they are not a substance abuse victim. A bum is a bum, they are not a displaced homeowner.
As for me political correctness is nothing more than a failed attempt to eliminate stigma from certain social and political scenarios. Maybe if more social stigma was applied instead of less, than people would stop behaving in anti social, immoral ways. Remember personal responsibility is personal responsibility regardless of what the politically correct crowd would have you think.
You can see 5 of my post apocalyptic fiction books, 2 of my zombie fiction books and 1 of my horror fiction books on the left side of my blog page. Go ahead; take a chance and purchase one or more over at Amazon.com. They are really quite interesting if I do say so myself 🙂
