Are we too PC?
Yet more PC twaddle!
Below an exert from an article in 'Mature Times' :
" I’ve recently been thinking about all the pressure that companies and organisations seem to be under to play the PC game, and I got to wondering if thisis sometimes really worth it?
Let me give you an example and this is in regard to something as inoffensive and innocuous as a box of tissues
The company Kimberley-Clark who produces Kleenex tissues last year announced that, following complaints, their “Man-size” tissues would be subject to a re-branding exercise and would henceforth be known as “extra-large” instead.
The complaints that they had received suggested that the use of “Man-size” supported gender inequality. I’m sorry, but you have a product that has been sold for years and years and suddenly the humble tissue becomes a target for sexual discrimination – I really don’t get what all the fuss is about.
But there are other examples, too.
How about the British Medical Association who advised its members that pregnant women, or mothers-to-be should be simply referred to as “pregnant people” to avoid offence and to celebrate diversity?
Then there’s the example of “drag queens” being banned from a Gay Pride event in Glasgow in case they cause offence to transgender people! "
Seems to me there are more nutters about than ever.
