Why Being “PC” Matters

Jason Advice

The word “political” is often used in a negative manner, associating it with the sometimes shady nature of “politicians” and their ability to say things they think they should say rather than what they actually believe. Unfortunately, the negativity of that word has corrupted another term, political correctness (PC), which is now being used to refer to any form of tactful response that makes an effort to not offend others, even beyond politics. Being “PC” isn’t about censorship or free speech, it’s about common decency and respect.
