PC: Political Correctness or Personal Compassion?

Friday reblog!

ShoutOut! JMU

Being labeled as “politically correct” is something that I’ve always felt uncomfortable about. When someone says something that I feel is inappropriate/marginalizing, I’ll say something, usually along the lines of “Hey, that’s not cool.” And I am consistently confronted with the response: “Oh come on, don’t be so PC.” Oftentimes, people will qualify what they say with something like “Okay, I know this is not exactly PC, but [insert microaggression here]. And these moments have consistently bothered me, but I could never put my finger on why….that is, until I came across an Everday Feminism article on political correctness and why it’s important.

About mybodymystory

Looking at things differently. I write about my personal experiences with society, especially regarding what messages I, as a woman, have received over time. I write about my body, not the body the media thinks I have or wants me to have. I write about my responses to sex, relationships, and political issues. This is my story of my body. There are a lot of things I write about that I believe overlap with other women. Come check out my story and see if you agree. Feel free to disagree, just be respectful about it.
