PC stuff is getting more and more ridiculous. I was talking with a friend about racial profiling recently and pointed out that if you take it all the way you get a woman reporting to the police that she was beaten and burgled by a man who broke into her apartment. She describes him as of a particular race, mid-twenties, had a limp, and wore gray overalls smelling of petrol. The police then note that:
they can’t look for a man, (sexist,)
they can’t look for a lame guy, (ableist)
they can’t look for a man of a particular race, (racist,)
they can’t look for a guy in his 20s, (age-discrimination,)
and they can’t look for a guy working in a garage, (because by now this may be class-discrimination.)
So they arrest the woman for making a discriminatory report. Stop laughing. If you take this PC nonsense to the logical end, that is about what you’ll end up with and as I’ve been noticing of late, we aren’t far off this damfool outcome already.
