    This fast reply to an anti political correct view makes me wonder about you man haha just playing

    PC was used a lot in communism and I was too little to understand it but my family being anticommunist in Cuba.....this phrase has always had a backhanded/I'm covering up what I really think kind of meaning to me. Once I hear someone say they are political correct I usually kindly just step away. Just my opinion of it

    It's meant different things. See, for example, the 1990s.

    Yeah this is what many people think it means but is not really the meaning at all.

    Speaking politically correctly is making sure that you're not promoting discrimination by your choice of language. That's all there is to it.

    e.g. there's nothing un-PC about me calling JBravo a moron. Because I'm not insulting his race or social class or sex etc. I'm not discriminating against him, I'm just saying he's stupid. I can get my meaning across perfectly easily.

    However, if I were to call him a retard, for example, that would be insulting to intellectually disabled people, who find that word dis-empowering.

    It's nothing to do with trying not to offend people or saying things without meaning, it's about not promoting discrimination or disempowerment.

    I mean, I'd be really pissed and offended if you called me a paki... but that's because I'm indian.

    I'm totally kidding. I think this was a no harm no foul thing. Lets move on. Hugs and all.

    xoxo to you @Benesyed !

    ^^ I wonder how it would look with some shoes with slightly more contrast. Cant really think of anything though, perhaps a black leather shoe with slightly more shine?

    Btw, I briefly visited Kent the other day, had dinner at the Sportsman in Seasalter. Very good.

    I think you're right about the shoes - brown or black chukkas/chelseas would have been a better choice.

    The Sportsman is about 2miles from me as the crow flies.

    It appears that the one and only source of knowledge of yours is Wikipedia. Also you are getting confused between the terms 'political correctness' and 'discrimination', you dumb ass.

    didn't "moron" used to be used in the same context we use "retard" today (to refer to people who are mentally slow)?

    It appears I have some fans

    haha not sure about that, might've been. Retard is just one of those words I'm sensitive about because I worked with intellectually disabled people through university and it was a word that held a real stigma for them.

    Also, JBravo, you already PMed me your inane thoughts. I'm not interested. Go away.
