Free Speech and Political Correctness
I think there needs to be some sort equilibrium in regards to political correctness and free speech. In some countries, it seems that there is no equilibrium and political correctness has gone to an extreme. If the words that you're using are not designed and/or intended to be derogatory then it is nonsensical for a government to say that you mustn't say that as some people may feel offended by it. If certain people are offended by what others say, when what they're saying is not inflammatory then therapy might be a viable option; governments changing words, phrases, terms etc that have the same fundamental meaning is not a reasonable solution to people feeling better about themselves.
Having said that, there are people that will use Free Speech and the argument against being politically correct just to justify their own malice behavior.
What do you think?
