    A mod brought up a good point that this thread is discussing different points than the other thread, so I'd like this thread to keep going.

    Anja, I'll read what you said when I wake up :p
    The probability that I was procrastinating when I was typing this post:

    P(have big assignment due) = 0.6
    P(posting on TypoC) = 0.2
    P(having big assignment due | posting on TypoC) = 0.7

    P(posting on TypoC | having big assignment due) = .......


    Eh, I'll finish it later.

    I had to deal with a certain individual who was high up in the HR department for some company, conducting training programs on topics such as racial sensitivity. She kept talking about how important the issue was, too. But from the way she was speaking about the preferences of black people as portrayed through her program, I wouldn't be surprised if she'd never met a black person in her life.

    The program in question was actively trying to avoid and preach against racism, but it'd come full-circle and basically careened right into it. They would've accomplished their goal better by just leaving the issue alone.

    Ah, customers

    When we no longer had the Soviet Union to hate, we had to find something else.

    Political correctness is saying what you should think rather than saying what you do think.

    Political correctness is part of Orwell's newspeak and is related to doublethink.

    And political correctness is magical thinking - where we believe if we change the words, we change reality.

    Magical thinking has a very long history from Transubstantiation to New Age mantras.

    But magical thinking is magical because it puts us into a trance and puts our critical faculties to sleep.

    And this is the purpose of political correctness - to put our critical minds to sleep, so we will uncritically accept whatever is told us.

    Political correctness is de rigueur for the bien-pensant.

    I've mentioned this before, long ago, but I heard someone (On TV no less, the bastian of truth) call native Africans who had never left Africa "African Americans."

    Being PC isn't really my thing. If I'm PC for too long it's usually because I'm sad.

    'Political correctness' taken to mean general politeness and general avoiding of being a complete dickhead? Yeah, sure.

    'Political correctness' which means idiots with too much time on their hands have competitions over who can be the most seriously offended and upset by almost anything? No thanks.

    Few things make me want to start punching people as much as being sanctimoniously informed that I need to be more 'sensitive'. Fuck. Off.
