Trolling & Political Correctness

This is a shout-out to the real life trolls. You guys are hilarious.

If I could get someone that spurred up, I would die happy. People are too damn sensitive, these days...and that's what you get for taking life too seriously.

Anyone who knows me, knows that I'm a troll. Now that I think about it... I'm pretty lucky to have my teeth intact. Facebook, forums, real-life...nothing's funnier than someone getting all riled up about something stupid and me being the cause of that. It has nothing to do with attention, and has everything to do with how funny it can get.

It's because of this, that I advocate anti-political correctness...or pro-political correctness removal (if you want to be politically correct. Wait...what?!) 

50 years down the road, when the world's a big sack of emotional instability, we can blame political correctness for making everyone too damn sensitive. 

Black vs. African-American", White vs. Caucasian, and retarded kid vs. Mentally-disabled are all ways around calling a spade, a spade. I once tried to figure out how political correctness might be good...but I realized that it'd be like trying to figure out whether or not Leona Lewis sort of looks like a man (it's a waste of time, and I already know the answer to begin with.)

People have argued that it's better to silence one person, in order to appease hundreds...but that isn't the case.

My biggest problem with political correctness i s that it starts off as a whole society being silenced in order to cater to the sensitivity of a select few. The only reason that political correctness is so prominent today is because people have gotten used to being pampered. Political correctness has given way for people to inconvenience reality, instead of changing the way that it's perceived. Instead of toughening up and shrugging off something that isn't actually offensive, we catch feelings over trivial crap.

Political correctness teaches people to focus on semantics, rather than content. A slip of a word or being specific results in the speaker being "insensitive". When you think about it....that really doesn't matter, because whether or not the speaker is insensitive has no bearing on the point that they're trying to prove.

Not only is speaking politically correct's also a waste of time. Political correctness breeds vagueness and ambiguity - polar opposites of objectivity. If political correctness has no place in an argument/discussion, then it has no place in society; especially in a democratic one, where free speech (used loosely) is rudimentary to the political system, itself.

If I'm a "horrible person" for wanting to speak accurately and concisely, then feel free to think less of me.

  1. I saw somebody 'liked' one of those groups on facebook which said the new MIA video 'Born Free' should be banned and I was wondering if you saw it? Ginger Genocide they call it.

    The video is pretty good actually, it's just weird how offended they get.

  2. I just checked it out. Cinematography's miles ahead of the average music video. I don't see anything wrong with it. Not much difference then watching people cut their limbs off on saw, or a typical war movie. Good video though...thanks for that.

    Another example is the recent south park controversy where they feature Muhammed (sic) in a bear suit. Now, I'm not a fan of South Park, but I do appreciate how they're always pushing the envelope.

    Again, people are TOO sensitive.
