Political correctness is all around us. It has its pros and cons... but have we gone too far? What word should be off limits? What words still have merit? With campaigns to snuff out the use of "retard," "gay," among others, is this a good thing for society? The Common Room is back in this, part 1 of 2, taking a long hard look at American political correctness.
What do you think? Are there some words totally without merit? Should we work to stamp out the use of the n word, for example? Or have certain groups gone too far in policing language? What words really offend you? What words do you use, even if they make you feel guilty later on? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
