Is it just me or do others get the impression that the expression "politically correct" is often looked at with a certain amount of disdain and ridicule? There may be a good reason for this attitude.
The concept of being politically correct is loaded with good intentions but is an immature approach to a real social problem: the lack of common decency and civility in public affairs. It's the adult version of the childhood rule against using naughty words, and is too condescending to get much respect from most people.
"Politically correct" is the Jar Jar Binks of modern vocabulary. I vote we erase it!
