    [FONT=&quot]It’s probably just my perception, but the term “political correctness” [PC] seems to have been stepped up very recently, in regard to such issues as same-sex marriage, funding Planned Parenthood, the Boy Scouts, et al. Just what is political correctness? How do you define it or characterize it? Check all that you agree with.[/FONT]

    While I am not into or out of PC, I thinks sometimes we need to mince our words correctly.
