I've always wondered who (or what) decides what's the "in thing" for political correctness. It's something I don't really care about. The irony of it all is that political correctness ends up dehumanising individuals and groups far more than any potentially hurtful statement could. Whenever I think of it I tend to recall a series named "Politically Correct bedtime stories" which highlights the stupidity of the whole concept.
This would usually be the part where I start criticising Fe but I don't think its required in this case.
