Haha, I'm the PC police too! Maybe I should wear my police costume...

i do call people out on hate speech. always have always will. i don't consider myself easily offended, i just have little patience for idiots.

i have been known to have to explain to guests (such as friends of friends) that they can not say certain words in my house. rules.

I don't try to offend people, but I'm not going to go out of my way to be politically correct.

My personal focus is on using non-oppressive language rather than "politically correct" speech. If a word or phrase harms members of a marginalized group (such as racist or other slurs, etc.), I'll avoid using it, but I never bother ...
I agree 100% with everything you're saying, pestilence. I think the focus needs to be on non-oppressive language.

This is exactly how I feel.

I try to be polite to everyone, but I'm not overly concerned about being PC.

I just treat other's how I'd want to be treated.

I was taught everything I know about gender in a way that highly considered intersectionality and that avoided oppression as best as possible. That group was highly policing, in terms of what you were allowed to say/ do. It taught me how to be "politically correct" (for lack of a better term); it taught me to be non-oppressive

I agree with some others that have said they use non-oppressive language. Language changes over time and if we use PC terms just to be PC, eventually someone is going to use them in a derogatory way. Look at the way the word "special" has evolved with regards to mentally disabled people-- at one time it was PC but is now a derogatory term. What's more important to me is being respectful and working to change perspectives, not just changing words.

Politically correct in the sense of "freedom fries" and sticking to what the mainstream would consider acceptable politics, hell no.

Politically correct as in deliberately doing everything I can do keep from hurting people, hell ...
This is me too. I really dislike the way the term 'politically correct' is used anyways. For me it has nothing to do with politics, it has to do with treating people the way I want to be treated. Not to mention I think it's usually used in a way that is very dismissive.

Absolutely deplore the use of "politically correct" to denote what amounts to "treating other people like human being and not being an asshole."
Also kinda grossed out by people proclaiming their "political incorrectness" in this thread, like being offensive and rude is suuuuper cool.

God, I just hate this attitude that everyone who doesn't laugh at your funny sexist/racist/classist /etc joke is so touchy and needs to lighten up. Micro-aggressions exist, people who are subjected to lots of little missteps and scorn every day are completely justified in not putting up with your bullshit, no one's being touchy or oversensitive, they're trying to survive.

It's not a big deal to make minor changes to your speech and actions, honestly, and it contributes to a society where everyone is more comfortable (except I guess assholes, but they deserve discomfort tbh), instead of just the privileged few.

So yeah, I guess I'm ~politically correct~.

I'm not PC because I don't care enough to be, just like I don't care if people aren't PC to me

I am most certainly very politically incorrect. I chose that I have always been this way because I have and that it is still kind of conscious decision. I don't want to be politically correct and I know that sometimes I make others uncomfortable with my views but if it gets people talking bluntly then I'm all for it.

I'm a very strong personality and that kind of goes hand in hand with my 'incorrectness'.

I am really PC in public and not PC at much when you talk to me one-on-one and if I know you well. If I know something is offensive to you then I won't talk about it and I'm not an insensitive asshole. Things offend me too and I get mad about social justice, racial, sexuality, etc stuff. It just depends who I'm with how politically incorrect I will be while speaking.

People are way too easily offended by the silliest things.

I'm not "PC" but I certainly stay away from racist/sexist/homophob ic/transphobic terms because I try not to be a shitty person.

I'm usually correct, but sometimes it's just too much. I think people have way too many reasons to get offended these days. We're all different, so why do we keep trying to sterilize our society, while claiming to celebrate diversity?
