This is for those of us who don't blindly believe whatever is fashionable or acceptable. I hold controversial and politically incorrect views, and I'm proud! If you are as well, feel free to use, favorite, comment, whatever you want!
As far as political correctness goes, I understand not calling blacks the n-word or gays f*g and stuff like that. I have nothing against showing other people respect. But no one in existence can continually avoid offending people. At this point, everyone's very existence is getting some troll riled up.
The ironic thing about those who claim to have "politically incorrect" views, is the fact that what they think is controversial is actually deeply ingrained into most people's subconscious & the structure of society. Basically, they're still supporting the status quo whilst claiming not to. Edgy right?
That's why those who claim to have "politically incorrect" views make me laugh.
If that were the case in my instance, I'd have a much easier time here. I think our country would be in better shape as well, but that being said, I don't disagree. What was once the counter culture has become the norm, but those who hold what is actually a normative view still believe themselves to be the rebels, the counter culture. I don't know how edgy it is so much as it is irony.
People often accuse civil rights activists of trying to instill political correctness. It's always the same. The majority doesn't like it when minorities gain the rights they've always had & are made to see their humanity for once. They feel it's an infringement of their own rights.
lol, that's not all that being politically incorrect means.
Two good examples are that I'm against gay marriage and believe illegals should be deported. Those two alone are politically incorrect. Political correctness are relative terms according to the mainstream views of society.
Political correctness means using terms which dos not offend people. That is what the term means. In order to be un-PC you must say "i dont want faggot marriage" or "deport the spics" as that used offending terms and language XD
I'm atheist and think Christians are stupid, I mean, why is believing crazy things different when it's related to a higher power/creation of the universe? It was fine when humans didn't understand how things worked, and it was the most logical answer, but people can't get over it for some reason. Also I'm against neutering animals (except for medical/behavior reasons and female cats, don't want to explain the whole reason why I think it's okay to spay female cats, I'll tell you if you ask), believe people should vote on all the laws and not just vote for people to make laws, hate pandas (pandas would go extinct even if we didn't "take their land" or whatever, the only reason they still exist is people keep them alive, they rarely even move and need a huge supply of only bamboo to survive, they evolved when there was a lot of bamboo and not enough normal food, but they can't survive anymore), I believe the government and all large corporations and banks are just one big corporation, and I think kids should be allowed to swear and not have kid's shows be ultra-clean.
All Christians are stupid because they believe in a higher being. .-. As a 3D modeler, honor roll student, digital artist, writer, and Christian. I'd be lying if I said that I'm not offended by this. Think about it. Many, many intelligent people and scientists believed in God, Galileo for example. Plus, just because we believe in a god, does not mean we aren't scientific. I have received very high grades in life science, physical science, and Earth science, and hardly any of the facts stated in my textbooks contradict with my beliefs. Geez, that "I'm athiest and think Christians are stupid" remark. Ouch.
Please do not take this the wrong way at all, but my guess is that you're kinda young. First I want to explain why voting on all the laws directly is a bad idea. There is a name for this system known as "direct democracy." What we have now is known as a representative democracy, where people vote directly for a representative who makes decisions. The problem with a direct democracy is that it is too much of a hassle for a nation of 300 million people. It wasn't so bad in the ancient Greek city of Athens where it was created, but it's not feasible here. Secondly, a lot of people believe the myth that Christianity is illogical, but for people who actually try to understand it, nothing makes more sense. I'm going for a degree in medicine, and I can say for certain that, as a so-called "Christian fundamentalist" there is nothing illogical, unscientific, or contradictory about it. I used to believe in evolution, you see, so I feel you.
Neutering animals can make one feel squeamish. I know that feeling. However, it is important for owners to do that because there are already too many dogs (I use dogs here as an example) that just go abandoned, are in shelters, or overall aren't taken care of. It's a sad thing how we treat our animals, it really does break my heart. That's just how the world is, though, and neutering is one way to be a responsible pet owner.
I'm alone in this, but I would always distain other kids who would swear and stuff. I hated it. Of course, I was a rather unique kid in my own right, haha.
