    Since I can remember, racial slurs were always a social no-no. Besides Polack jokes, using any of the big racial bombs was something that you knew better to do unless you wanted trouble. But I still remember when “n;gger†wasn't bleeped on TV and even news anchors would say it if they were relaying a direct quote. Context was key back then. Then context became irrelevant.

    Then “retard†became the “R-word†and “faggot†became the other “F-word.†Now MSNBC has declared “Redskins†the other, new “R-word†and calling a transsexual a “tranny†is hate speech. Calling an undocumented immigrant an “illegal†is quickly become “hate speech†as well. What do you think is next? And I’m asking seriously.

    I get some of it. Actually, I kind of understand a lot of it. Nobody wants to be marginalized, but it seems that there’s a free-for-all brewing and now everybody wants to be included in the Officially Offended List. I listened to a few minutes of Joe Rogan’s podcast with Dan Savage earlier today. Rogan is a retard (sorry, an “r-wordâ€) and I didn't last long. But I heard Savage mention “fat shaming†and the “fat acceptance movement†like they’re real, legitimate things. “Fat shaming†is now in the lexicon and I predict that calling people fat will be the newest no-no. The other other F-word. After all, fat people aren’t fat…they’re people…who just happen to have a lot of fat hanging off their bodies.

    What will be the next forbidden word? Something that the mainstream media, bloggers and Twitterers will all get behind to show how compassionate, open-minded and tolerant they are? Again, regardless of context.

    Will "Whitey" ever be the "W" word?

    Calling a blind person, "blind."

    We'll have to say the "B" word.

    No. It's NEVER an insult to be called white.

    that already happened. i was forced to take a class at work about acceptable ways to deal with the public. blind, handicapped, crippled, etc. are no-nos now.blind is something like "sighted difficulties" now and we're not allowed to mention it. instead we have to ask the person how they would like to conduct their interaction. we have to treat them as though there is nothing different about them.

    i have no customer interaction and i still had to take the class.

    If we are told that we have to accept every behavior, eventually NAMBLA will turn pedophile in to the "P" word.

    Is "Seeing impaired" still cool or has it gone beyond that?

    A buddy of mine is paralyzed from the chest down and has been since he was 15. He jokes that his condition has went from being crippled to being handicapped to being disabled to now being "differently abled"...and yet he still can't fucking walk.

    "sweaty fat fucks" didn't make it past the brainstorming phase.

    The days of the good words are gone, boys. Grab your balls and rifles and prepare to head to the trenches. The pussies (can I say that word?) are taking over. Make way for yoga mats, vente lattes and political correctness. I love this country but the PC bullshit and everybody gets a trophy crap will be our death, just wait and see.

    I got shamed a few moths ago for saying "Eskimo". Seriously. Eskimo is now a slur.
    The correct term now apparently is "Inuit"

    I agree with you. I try to be respectful and am fairly progressive in some respects but the hypersensitivity is fucking out of hand. A lot of commentary sites I used to enjoy have become unreadable. Everything is racist or sexist or shaming or bullying. I saw an article a couple of weeks ago on Salon.com entitled "The Diversity Problem in the X-Men is Getting Worse". I shit you not! I saw the latest movie and apparently a team that has whites, asians, african americans, and fucking blue people, BLUE PEOPLE!, all led by a handicapped guy isn't diverse enough!!!

    It's all an attack on the first amendment.


    Remember the grand ole saying "Sticks and Stones May Break My Bones but Names Will Never Hurt Me."

    This was a saying of empowerment. It empowered the person being called the name to rise above the name caller.
    To state "Doesn't matter what you call me, I know who and what I am and your words do not matter. It is just your opinion and those are just words."
