    Lightbulb Political Correctness/Feminism

    Personally speaking I'm fed up of peoples political correctness. The last few years have become absolutely ridiculous of what you can and can't say. Its on our tv, radio and other media platforms.
    Your either a racist, sexist with masculinism views or imply some kind of prejudice.

    Slightly off topic with regard to feminism, the true feminist's I'm talking about ( who want to change our laws)I'd like to believe there isn't a single female on this site who actually agrees with them as
    Anti-prostitution feminists hold that prostitution is a form of exploitation of women and male dominance over women hence the push on new law reforms in Ireland.
    Of course they target trafficking which we all agree is wrong but painting all escorts with the one brush is also the wrong approach.

    I feel its only a question of when the laws will change, not if.

    On a lighter note here's 10 examples of political correctness gone mad.

    1.*The BBC has dropped the use of the terms Before Christ (BC) and Anno Domini (AD) on one of their programmes and decided that the terms 'Before Common Era' / 'Common Era'*are more appropriate*

    2.*The European Parliament introduced*proposals to*outlaw*titles stating marital status such as 'Miss' and 'Mrs' so as not to cause*offence. It also meant that 'Madame' and 'Mademoiselle', 'Frau' and 'Fraulein'*and 'Senora' and 'Senorita' would be*banned.

    3.*Throughout several US councils and organisations, any terms using the word 'man' as a*prefix or suffix have been ruled as not being*politically correct.*'Manhole' is now*referred to as a 'utility' or 'maintenance' hole.*

    4.*Loveable*cartoon rogue*Dennis the Menace*has been given a politically correct make over. BBC chiefs decided to*take away his edge in the remake. Gone are his bombs, catapult, water pistol and pea*shooter -*and in their place is a simple*boyish grin.*

    5.*Spotted*Dick -*a classic*English dessert has been renamed to avoid embarrassment. The traditional pud*Spotted Dick has been given the titleSpotted Richard, after UK council bosses*feared*the original name*might cause offence.

    6.*A school in Seattle renamed its Easter eggs 'spring*spheres' to avoid causing offence to people who did not celebrate Easter.*

    7.*A UK council has banned the term 'brainstorming' – and replaced it with 'thought showers', as local lawmakers thought the term may offend epileptics.

    8.*A UK recruiter was stunned when her*job advert for 'reliable' and 'hard-working' applicants was*rejected by the job centre as it could be offensive to unreliable and lazy people.

    9.*Gillingham fans had begun to fondly offer celery to their goalkeeper, ‘Big Fat’ Jim Stannard. The club, however, decided that*celery could result in health and safety issues inside the ground. As a result,*fans were subjected to celery searches with the ultimate sanction for*possession of celery*allegedly being a life ban.

    And lastly but not least,

    10.*In 2007, Santa Clauses in Sydney, Australia, were banned from saying*'Ho Ho Ho'. Their employer, the recruitment firm Westaff (that supplies*hundreds of Santas across Australia), allegedly told all trainees that 'ho ho ho' could*frighten children, and be derogatory to women. Why ?* Because 'Ho Ho Ho' is too*close to the American (not Australian, mind you) slang for prostitute.*

    I'm not going to pretend that I read all of what you wrote but I would like to say that those feminists that you talk of are not 'true' feminists. They are 'radical feminists. The true feminists believe in equality and balancing things out so things work more cohesively in a world where we can all choose to be independent or be in harmony with each other. Ie, equal pay for equal output kind of thing. Radical feminists are the ones that believe that tings should not be equal, but that women are in some way superior, as men are inherently bad in some way.

    I watched a programme Yesterday on Irish telly where they were suggesting that all women are lesbian to some degree, where as men are not all homosexual in the same way. They suggested this was due to it being socially acceptable. I would tend to be believe that it has absolutely nothing to do with gender and more to do with a sliding scale that belongs to both genders that starts with zero and ends at 10. Some people will fit into 0 and have o desire at all for the same sex and then others will be somewhere between the two at varying degrees. As a woman I can categorically say that I would hit the '0' and have never wavered from that.

    Radicalists tend to have no notion of what other people believe and are not interested in other people's experiences or thoughts. They tend to have the biggest voices and talk as though they are talking on behalf of the majority despite of it normally being on behalf of the minority. Their thoughts and notions tend to have little to do with anyone else and what they think or feel. Feminism is NOT anti men, it is not accusing men of being rapists and it is not about belittling the opposite sex. Many feminists are against the Swedish law and believe that women have the right to do what they want with their bodies, including giving consent for money.

    Hey kate, hope your keeping well.

    Fair enough radical feminists is probably a better terminology than "True" as I quoted but
    To those women and in their opinion they are true feminists, which is ultimately what
    Neither us believe in so were definitely on the same page.
    Your correct they really only do speak of the minority which is why I feel its somewhat
    Related to political correctness as they shout the loudest and have the " biggest voices"
    As you say yet governments and political parties pander to these radical women because
    they don't want to cause offense to their beliefs, so go along with it instead.

    11. Fuck third wave feminists. They are destroying the work of countless women with their men hating games and they do not represent the view of real feminists in my manly view.

    It seems to me that a lot of people use a vehicle to get what they want when they know it is unreasonable. Many people in the past have used religion to push people into agreeing with them or at best being too afraid to disagree with them and some people have latched on to 'feminism' which was never meant to be a bad thing to use as a vehicle to push their agenda. It is such a shame when something that is essentially meant to be positive is used in a way that is negative.

    They are not stupid though. They know if people question them there is the potential to push back years and years of work that other feminists have done to even things out, so they use the fear of losing that to get what they want. It is the fear of the unknown that often stops people from questioning the negatives that have been achieved off the back of religion. War should never have anything to do with religion and yet most are at the core of it.

    Seriously Kate,

    I love your brain lol. I wholeheartedly agree with everything you've said. I wish there
    Were more like minded people in the world. Intelligence is just as attractive
    as looks. Wouldn't the world be a better place
