Was this PC extreme.
The way I see it, someone used a term that I would not use and in my opinion should not be used. If it could be offensive, don't use it. It's common sense.
Then someone called the person out about it. Not hardcore like, and if I remember the thread correctly, more along the lines of just pointing out that the term was derogatory.
All of a sudden, people came rising up to attack the "thin skinned" "PC" people. I DON'T BELIEVE THIS WAS ABOUT PC.
As for this brouhaha, Taurus' slip is the least cause of the commotion. It's the rest of the posters trying to minimalize the situation and playing the PC card. It does go both ways. People do need to be a little civilized/sensitive and people need to be more thick skinned. In this case I believe KAMAUSU was attacked by people who threw the PC card in his face and that is what escalated it.
So one final question, who runs around or let's their kids run around using terms like Jap, ****, ***, Guinea, ****, etc? Not me, or mine. Just typing those words is like going against the grain of my personality. So how about it, how many proud parents out there teaching thier kids to use those words. From the defense Taurus recieved it must be a lot.
