While it's understandable we have a right to be offended, as long as it's reasonable, I certainly have no problems with political incorrectness since people couldn't care less if they upset the other party and have their 1st Amendment right to free speech.

 

I'm beginning to understand that this country we're living in is becoming divided because of two political parties (Republican and Democrat) seeing things in black and white, like political correctness and censorship.  I'm starting to see that some conservative and libertarian views to make sense to me as I'm reading this thread.

Political correctness is a joke. And typically a double standard by those who want a way to justify their own beliefs and lifestyle.

The 1st amendment makes it okay for us to offended with each other while at the same time it is okay for us to offend the offended without penalty or remorse in person.

But in terms of the internet, it is only okay if the website owner allows it.
