    The phrase "political correctness gone mad" was coined by The Daily Mail, which tells you pretty much all you need to know about it.

    I do think most people understand why political correctness is as a concept though. It's pretty straightforward.

    No. Ask vizzini, he might have some advice about the teraflops and frustrums you need to think about.

    Less so when you Google "Lexx black burger fetish"

    It might be me but it's throwing up some rather rude sites.

    There was that trend in the last 40 years or so of increasing uniformity. To be of a different opinion than the uniform consensus is not much appreciated. There are many subjects where you will find a relative big part of society which will defend that narrative.

    Defend it not with their unique take on it or a spectrum of different concerns but a uniform point of view. To challenge that uniform point of view will always result in a very emotional response. I would expect that if a certain take on an issue is shared by a rather big group that discussions would remain more calm because the emotion of feeling backed into a corner would not occur - fear.
    But that is not the case, the pc crowd (haha)* gets very emotional.

    The term political correctness is to me a response, used by those who oppose that kind of strong group think. Some tabloids understand that development and they not only want to cater to the ones who are behaving and thinking politically correct but also speak to the ones who feel left out by the uniform group - thus they manipulate them by using phrases like political correctness gone mad.

    *Talking about the political correct crowd not the crowd who use it's political correctness gone mad crowd - that would obviously be the pcgm crowd (haha)

    @Dangerous_Dan

    The whole "PC gone mad" thing to me has always come across as pretty much the same sort of thing as people who start a sentence with "I'm not racist, but..."

    I.e, it's normally the precursor to a huge rant about ethnic/sexual/religious groups.

    If the term actually was coined by the DM, I wouldn't be in the last bit surprised.

    @darkmorgado

    I am a racist - I think that blacks are on average better runners than whites.
    I am a sexist - I believe that men are on average stronger than women.

    But I don't use "I'm not a racist, but..." or "It's political correctness gone mad..." openers for my huge rants.

    It's only racist if you invest moral meaning (i.e. blacks are better than whites because, etc) from such observations, if such observations can be made off the cuff.

    Unless you go on about it allllll the time, that means you're boring.
