Political correctness is everywhere - some say it's appropriate and some say it's run amuck. When they say it's run amuck, this is what they really mean. www.themidlifemamas.com

  1. You put into words something that I have been trying to figure out how to write about for a long time. I get so angry when I hear people say things like “with all this political correctness no one can say what they mean anymore.” No….it’s no “political correctness.” It’s just common decency! I know so many people whose life motto is basically that they can say whatever they want and if you don’t like it, too bad. I’ve never understood that because it essentially means you don’t care if you hurt other people’s feelings as long as you get YOUR say.

    I’m blathering on but all of this is really just to say “thank you” for putting this out there and helping articulate something that so many of us are feeling!

    1. Absolutely. “Politically correct” is basically just a way to make the very positive “treating people with respect” somehow sound negative. Great article, thank you for your thoughtfulness.

  2. Brilliant differentiation: “This is wrongly called political correctness gone amuck when it is the absence of human decency.” Thank you for getting to the heart of the matter, and in doing so challenging us all to do better by our fellow human beings.:-)
