Doesn't bother me. Rather be politically correct than being offensive.

My pet peeve is coming up with 'politically correct words' and thinking they are 'correct', rather than using words that are true and honest.

 Listening to political correct people who really don't know how to communicate.

For me, as a physical therapist, the worst is that it's now not acceptable to say your bad leg or good leg. Instead we have to say involved leg and uninvolved leg.

Having to use inclusive language when it simply doesn't apply such as saying the spokesperson instead of saying spokesman even though it's a man.

 The watered-down holidays.

The kids school lunch posted "Winter Break" instead of Christmas.

 Here's a funny (in a sad way) true story. I was out shopping with the kids last weekend and the clerk ringing us up had blue hair, a couple of tats, lip ring, etc....

She sneezed, so in a knee-jerk reaction, I said "God Bless You". She ignored me. So my son chimes in, "Bless You!"  At which she just glared at him.

What a creep.

How hard is it so "Thank You"? Sheesh~

 People have lost their sense of humor. That's what I find sad about PC in general.
