All sense of proportion
Via Ron Davison, who maintains a blog HERE.
I have a knee-jerk reaction against the term “political correctness.” In my life, I’ve never heard anyone denied their right to say unkind things– but I’ve heard a lot of people say unkind things followed by “I guess I’m not ‘politically correct,’ hur-hur, hur-hur,” apparently believing that the suffix converts them from bigots and bullies into Fearless Defenders of Free Speech.
I gave this a chance because I trusted Ron’s judgement, and I’m glad I did because it’s brilliant.
(He also pointed out that I’ve been mispronouncing “Cleese” for my entire life. It’s not pronounced the way you think it is.)
