    Maybe mixing Miller High Life with potentially explosive conversation isn't too smart either.

    Victor, I agree with you except for the part about words not being powerful. On reflection, I'm sure you would rescind that.

    That's one of the reasons renaming things exists - because of the power of words.

    Maybe so. Maybe this is one of the many areas of typical SJ behavior that I deviate from, as well.

    Like Bella said and I relate with, is annoyance with people that vehemently will diss another. I have my issues with religion and God, I'm not religious but if someone wants to say to another that does feel convicted that God exists that "there is NO God.", that's an example of crap that bothers me. I don't know if that's really a good example of political correctness though. Probably not.

    You know, I can still handle that. But I see what you're saying, someone shouting that in someone' face for example is not so great, but even then...What I really don't like is, 'look at that fat, white trash, retard' - within hearing distance of said retard.

    I have the exact opposite problem, its kinda strange for being an ENFP. I can sympathize with others just as well as any other ENFP, and then I just throw it out the window. Ive been called insensitive at times to be mild.

    Only people who have and or deserve my respect obtain my sympathy.

    That sort of thing is silly. Why the hell someone could be offended by being called "black" is beyond me. If you called their son a 'golliwogg' or 'monkey' I would have understood but 'black'.
    Apparently I didn't see the offense either Lol.

    I feel the same way in most instances.. Though with the case mentioned, I think I'd sooner be smacked with a wet dead desert fox than hear any black person refer to me as caucasian. Not offensive, since I am white.. I don't understand how any black person gets offended being called black. Sounds like a personal problem to me..

    Same goes with those fucking Injuns. "Native Americans", "Indians", "AmeriIndians", etc. I mean just pick a damn name already, and we can go on with life calling you Indians.

    Lol!!

    The En werd is thrown around in my house by my father and his friends when referring to people that piss my parents and their friends off.. They have the "There's black people, and then there's niggers." mentality. I'm not entirely sure I agree with this mentality...

    I call the Indians Natives, btw.. It's short, not the word "Indian" so I can use it for the country, and doesn't sound so bad overall.. I suppose.

    Oyy!! I can't STAND just blatant rudeness like that! That goes beyond not being politically correct, that's just trying to be insulting and hurtful.

    Ah, Anja, you know me too well - you start with my favourite word, my name. And then you validate me by agreeing. And it is only when you hold me in the palm of your hand, you mention a slight way to improve myself. And I am eager to do anything for you - even improve myself. So of course I will rescind. For you, it is a pleasure.

    I have felt the power of your words and I am purring like a kitten.

    I eagerly await your next reply - ah, the power of words.

    They caress my skin and touch me deep inside.

    Of course I rescind.
