It is getting out of hand! It is getting to the point that any communication with co-workers is impossible due to the chance that someone will get offended. In our team meeting, it was affirmed that if someone is going through a rough time or illness, we are not allowed to say "I'll pray for you", even if that person shares your faith since someone could overhear you and be offended. Another person on my team sent someone a joking email and called them a fruitcake. This was immediately perceived as a homophobic comment and gasps were heard all around the office. Doesn't matter that fruitcake means an eccentric or crazy person. Reality has no bearing upon political correctness. It is getting to the point of absolute insanity in this country! What will it take to end the madness?? Will someone have to take a case all the way to the Supereme Court that rules that not being offended by words is not a constitutional right?? Seriously, someone has to make a stand! 99% of people I talk to agree that PC is destroying our country and makes no sense, but nobody will do anything abut it.
