    There is a fundamental difference between disliking PIV sex and calling it "rape".

            For some reason I always thought the PMRC came from the Republicans, but I only later knew that she is the wife of Al Gore.

              This is fun. I have a friend ( he is a religious "in his 70s retired old" fellow ) once asked me if I was into Iron Maiden because he said they were satanic. I said yes and that all that is bs of course. He looked me puzzled and I laughed again.

                Brazilian cosmetics brand Boticario ( with a long list of PC events ) will not use the term "Black Friday" from now on.

                https://oglobo.globo.com/economia/o-...termo-24666935

                I wonder if Soundgarden will change the name of the song Black Hole Sun, or Astrophysics will change the term black hole, or Black metal will be changed to something more PC, or Black Sabbath. Sky's is a limit for PC creativity.

                  Agree or not with Larry Correia or Brad Torgensen ( their aims have been extremely misinterpreted ) this is an excellent article written by Brad when he was called racist.

                  https://bradrtorgersen.wordpress.com...t-living-room/

                  His wife is black by the way. And no, unlike many of his detractors think, being married to a black woman does make him "a non-racist".

                      https://www.nationalreview.com/2018/...ulous-moments/

                      My favorite ones:
                      Berkeley students claimed they did not have enough “privilege” to take their exam in class.
                      Expecting people to be on time was declared “culturally insensitive.”

                        My favorites
                        The University of Connecticut offered counseling to students upset at ‘even the thought of’ a Ben Shapiro speech.
                        The phrase ‘long time no see’ was reportedly declared to be ‘derogatory’ towards Asians.
                        A bathing-suit ad was declared ‘sexist’ because it depicted a woman in a bathing suit.

                          A Brazilian black woman has not been approved for a public working contest under the racial quotas because she was beautiful and as she " does not look like a black woman", she won't have problems with racism if she attempted to try the non-quotas places.

                          https://g1.globo.com/df/distrito-fed...ca-do-df.ghtml

                          In other words, it is undoubtedly inferred from such an argument that, because she [the candidate] is a beautiful woman and does not present the anatomies 'identified with blacks' (curly hair, extremely accentuated nose and lips, evidenced black skin color) discrimination, although black / brown, and therefore should be excluded from the event by the quota system.

                            You know that some of this stuff is probably just made up?

                            Quite possibly by someone or something, with an agenda...

                                An example of PC-ism is that when right-wing cases are reported here, they are immediately liked unlike the so-called left-wings
