are we so worried about not offending anyone that almost nothing can be said without first hesitating that one might offend? Wouldn't it be easier if people became strong and confident to the point that they would not become offended at what might be said? Like the chicken or the egg, what came first? Our being offended at the littlest things because we individuals are weak, or the continual move to be more PC has caused us to be easily hurt or offended?

I do not call it being PC, but rather having manners, decorum and social graces, and I fully support those behaviors. Further, I truly believe that many are more apt to say things on the Internet that they'd likely never say to someone's face IRL.
All the kids should get on a team, in a recreational league, but if you or your children have ever played in a highly competitive league, all the children do not make the team. If the unskilled kids are never allowed to play how will they ever learn or get better? Go to a highly competitive school, all the kids do not get A's for just showing up, and the class has 1 Valedictorian.
