Political Correctness by Chazlene Political Correctness by Chazlene
Part of a uni project about reduction, we had to produce a set of posters which tell people to reduce something in their lives which will benefit them, in this case it was political correctness. I'm glad with the fact that I avoided the obvious solution of pasting a smiley face onto a tyrant such as Hitler or Stalin, and instead went for the more subtle barbed wire in the shape of a smiley face.

What is 'Political Correctness'? It is a process starting in the 1970s in which some people try to re-work the way people spoke or thought in academics and general parlance to be less loaded and more inclusive. Don't refer to the "men of France" but the "people of France" and eliminate things where minorities were the butt of jokes simply for being minorities with dark skin and so forth. A few people got a bit over-zealous in this and did things like remove Huckelberry Finn from the libraries due to the presence of the N-Word, which led to some comedians making jokes about it. Then Right Wing figures used this new buzz word to contrive some convoluted totalitarian scheme and made it out to get you and impose a dictatorship somehow. The aims of which was to let them be homophobic, sexist and racist and look like the heroes.

The ONLY problem with political correctness is that it does not know where to stop.

The problem is that it shouldn't have been created.

It wasn't "created". It just sort of happened over time.

The problem with it is that it ever started.
