Political correctness is a bit like a maiden aunt arriving at a party when everyone's having a good time. And she comes in, they all start sort of buttoning up and becoming self-conscious and behaving properly and then when she leaves, you can have fun again.

Political correctness hasn't changed how I speak, so it makes no difference to me. It can come and go, and I'm still the same.

It's kind of entertaining to watch Auntie react to unfiltered conversation.

A shame that a lot of people seem to confuse political correctness with being a decent human being

I see. Like firing a sports caster because his name is Robert Lee. He's Asian by the way, but come on - Robert Lee? Obviously a confederate sympathizer. The polite thing to do is to fire his **** butt!

So true. It's like, "How can tou spot a person about to tell an off color or sexist joke?" He is the one looking all around first.

It's not necessarily a bad thing. Went to a wedding and the groom was talking to his groomsmen about how the night before, his future wife had given him the best BJ of his life. His new wife was talking to her bridesmaids telling them she had finally given her last BJ.
