  1. In Topic: What is Political Correctness

    Today, 10:33 AM

    Political correctness though is more than what you describe Ment. I has good sides to it and bad sides to it.

    A person might call it Political correctness that in America they went from calling black people N***** to African Americans. In my country being called black in and of itself is not considered a bad thing and the idea of African Americans is often made fun off as being too overly sensitive. I have to admit I find it strange but I have no problem treating people with respect and consider this to be harmless (even though I am sure in the past I have made fun of the African American thing myself). This is good political correctness.

    However political correctness can also be the negative that some topics are now almost taboo to even discuss in public because everyone will be uncomfortable. Not because they are made uncomfortable by the topic but because they are uncomfortable that someone in the group will be offended, report them to HR etc. The other day on a forum I was told not to discuss whether god (Yaweh) is male, female or non-gendered (The view point of Catholicism and Judaism so I argued it wasn't a debate, it was a fact) because the topic was too serious and they were worried about its relationship to trans-gendered people. Political correctness can be the cowardliness that to prevent offending anyone you basically say nothing and do nothing.

    Can they do that? Did they have a quorum? and if they did couldnt they have passed it regardless?

    EDIT- Okay a quorum is 61 out of 120 lawmakers. It was 55 republicans and 9 democrats. I dont know the rules but I believe the smart move would have been for 4 democrats to high tail it out of the room as fast as possible, rather than have their objections on the record. I think such a tactic has been used in my country before but as I said I dont know the specific rules.

    What does it take for republican senators to start getting alarmed. Soon the white house will be staffed by nothing but interns.
