"politically correct: conforming to a belief that language and practices which could offend political sensibilities should be eliminated"

Show notes

On this episode Matthew and DJ tackle a topic that keeps popping it's head up in peoples questions: "Political Correctness". You can read the full wikipedia entry on the phrase here. It includes: "Political correctness (adjectivally: politically correct; commonly abbreviated PC) is a term used to describe language, policies, or measures that are intended to avoid offense or disadvantage to members of particular groups in society. In public discourse and the media, the term is generally used as a pejorative with an implication that these policies are excessive or unwarranted. Since the late 1980s, the term has been used to describe a preference for inclusive language and avoidance of language or behavior that can be seen as excluding, marginalizing, or insulting to groups of people disadvantaged or discriminated against, particularly groups defined by ethnicity, sex, or gender."

Matthew mentions the book "The Poisonwood Bible" by Barbara Kingsolver. DJ mentions the satarical musical "The Book Of Mormon" by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone.
