Chauncey Devega cuts to the Chait about those who moan that there is too much “political correctness.”
Of course, the central problem with the white male victimologist “anti-p.c.” crowd is that they want the exclusive right to beat and stab people–especially people of color, women, gays and lesbians, and the Other, more generally–around the head and body with cold and sharp steel while the latter are either 1) disarmed or 2) only allowed to respond with “kid friendly” and safe weapons. Here, the privileged and the in-group are hypocrites; their hypocrisy is most readily apparent when a member of the powerful and the privileged group cry about how they are somehow “oppressed” or “disadvantaged.”
Do read the rest.
The dirty little secret of the “anti-PC” crowd is this:
They want to be rude and crude, by Heavens, your feelings be damned. If they hurt your feelings, it must be your own damned fault for having feelings.
