Abby Dees thinks we should start over on when thinking of political correctness and instead just go for a genuine good faith effort of mutual respect.
As Abby Dees points out in this short video: “The original idea of being “PC” is that on a daily basis our words and actions should support an environment of respect and equality. That sounds good. The problem is that this message got lost, and people thought they were being asked to say certain things or refrain from saying other things and their own common sense of what’s right and wrong didn’t matter any more. However well-intentioned the PC police are, there has to be a better way to communicate. So let’s just start over on this one, and let’s just forget about political correctness completely.”
