Not sure what to comment.
From what I can tell, people are so proud of being “politically IN-correct,” what Stephan describes above doesn’t ring a bell at all.
All the “political correctness” crowd was trying to do was get people to be more polite to each other.
Oh! I forgot! The rage to day is to be as outrageous as possible, to insult as many people as possible!
Somewhere along the way, we forgot the admonition of the Bible, Book of Mormon, and many other religious books: PRIDE IS ALWAYS A SIN.
