I know! It's like how people go around saying "pediatrician" "pediatrician" "pediatrician" "pediatrician" "pediatrician" "pediatrician" when they mean "podiatrist". You disgust me.

Perhaps this trend in political correctness is an engineered effort by certain unnamed (iron-ore vessel unloading machine - cars) printer and ink manufacturers and forresters to get us to use more ink and paper using more words.

Holy Moley     Oh my gosh, political correctness could be an ecological disaster !  And it might hasten the development of carpal tunnel.

William Faulkner didn't write about "Southern Decadence", he wrote "Treatises upon the socially-downward trends within the anti-bellum confederacy and the acts engendered by feelings of loss".

In this new age of enlightenment sweeping the galaxy, one must be more sure than ever before that they are Politically Correct.  In an effort to offend no one, this is an opportunity to share one's politically correct knowledge.

We can no longer say that some one is dumber than a box of rocks.  It is inherently offensive to the rocks.  So one should say that one is just as smart as a box of rocks.  No wait, that can still be offensive to the rocks.  Geez, this sure is complicated.

Perhaps this might work.  "She is pregnant" should be expressed as "That person of childbearing gender is parasitically oppressed."

or instead of "that man is bald" one might say "that person of non childbearing gender is follically challenged"

Think of the good that be accomplished here in an effort to make us all winners, where no one is offended.

So what you got ?    Does any non specific animated entity viewing have any contributions to the topic at hand ?
