    I think being PC is another way of saying being a halfway decent human being, but people like to use the other term as an excuse to be offensive or justify something hurtful because political correctness is for the oversensitive folk. That's how i see it being used most of the time...to ridicule those who put more thought into something. It's funny because when people speak up about an injustice or wrong others assume they are offended. It's not always the case...sometimes it's just pointing out a wrong.

    I guess the other thing that confuses me is that surely 'politically correct' should refer to the dominant politics of the time? And ATM we have a conservative government, so wouldn't a conservative opinion be the PC one?

    And why does PC have to imply that people are censoring themselves?

    Why is it censorship to attempt to be respectful of others?

    Is the implication that no one actually is that way and it's fake? I don't get it.
