Political correctness gone mad

pig with Guinness

I think Political correctness has gone absolutely amok. Seems these days everyone is offended by something.

From Hoop skirts to books about pigs. What is next??? We are becoming a society that cannot laugh at itself or express an opinion, write a book, wear a dress without offending some oversensitive twit. I am really tired of everything offending someone. Be offended by war, murder of innocents, the lack of freedom for all people not children’s books, hoop skirts and God knows what else.

    And what about the new thing at some universities where a professor is obliged to provide “trigger warnings” on the literature syllabus in case it might traumatize a student. What?? Don’t we go to college to open our minds, and even be scared at times?

    There is no end to what is now viewed as political correctness, though I have other, less complimentary terms for it. It’s out of control. As a result we seem to have lost our sense of humor, which is very sad and disturbing.

    A slow erosion of freedom. Scary.
