Fucking Political Correctness


So many things that make me proud to be British; Chavs, Primark, the highest teenage pregnancy rate in Europe, ridiculous benefits system and now ladies and gays the over use of political correctness.

It would be nice to call a spade a spade. In this political correctness gone mad society though one would fear upsetting the masses and prefers now to refer to such an item as an agricultural tool for digging. Now this may seem crazy, I completely agree; however it now appears that the word Gypsy is now politically incorrect. We must now refer to such people as nomadic people of Egyptian decent, as one newspaper referred them this week.

It’s the little words that I love, little words like cunt. Everyone knows if you call a man a cunt the type of man that you can expect him to be. Now ladies and gays one has to waste effort using multiple words when one would suffice.

Just recently a little scandal at a certain University made my blood boil. An openly gay student had to attend a disciplinary meeting to discuss the use of his word faghag; it apparently referred to gays in a negative way. The student was forced to apologize to all staff that had been offended by his comments. The man who made the complaint is gay. I’m baffled. Perhaps this very same man would like to stage a protest outside ‘QUEER’ bar on Canal Street for their use of what was once a derogatory term for us gays. I would like to say to the man who complained that being called a ‘fag’ would be the least of your worries if you were to meet me. I could think of a few more words that could be used to describe you, like cunt, twat, and wanker.

Just last week the government of Britain again made superior judgment in the trading standards case against Joan Higgins. I applaud them for the use of such little common sense and a superior waste of time. Joan, a 66 year old pensioner from Manchester, was arrested in a trading standards sting. The grandmother sold; wait for it, not drugs, but a goldfish to a 14 year old boy. The pet shop owner was fined £1000 and forced to wear a tag for six weeks. It really is beggar’s belief. I’d just like to say to the trading standards officer that I think you are a stain that has been caused from the orgasm of male masturbation on to nylon clothing.

Your posts are getting more and more angry and aggressive.

There is political correctness for the good of minorities and the good of all of us a society, which should be applauded. But you are right of course there is political correctness pushed too far - I'll never understand how we cant call a blackboard and black board any more because it's racist, it's now a chalk board yet we still call a whiteboard a white board?

Hello you, friendly Twitter stalker. I told you I'd stop by.

Firstly, LOVE that you love Victoria Wood. I know all of her songs by heart.

Your observations on politically correct language were valid and interesting. Language is constantly shifting, what is considered 'acceptable' or 'offensive' constantly changing and evolving. Despite the obvious silliness and contradictions I do, however, maintain groups of people's right to chose the words that define THEM. So if spastic is offensive to the people to it refers, and they wish to be referred to by a different term of phrase, then I respect that and think that is their right.

What I do have a problem with is idiots who have no concept or understanding of the groups and language they are interfering with making decisions that are based solely on some bureaucratic political bullcrap.
