Political correct started off as a good thing. I remember just after it came out. hampshire college, amherst, ma, uber liberal. 1990.
At the time, I saw it as ‘how to be respectful of other people”. Seemed like a nice idea and I didn’t mind speaking/writing the lingo.
Somewhere along the line though, culture changed (university culture as well as surrounding culture) and it became a weapon rather than a tool for civil discourse. Shame because it was a nice, if misguided notion.
Suggesting is one thing. Institutionalizing it changes it.
