Sorry I have to disagree with you at some points.
> I'm not American, and no hate to the Euros but I've talked to heaps of them that will say that Muslim women shouldn't be allowed to wear the burka but they (the euros) should be allowed to say racist things
Maybe it I talked to other people in other Europe countries, but I never heard a Euro say that. No one wants to be racist. Yes many don't want women to wear Burkas. (for me I am okay with Hijab but I want to look a person in the face when I talk to them, so Burkas are weird for me. For others they think that it is oppression for the woman and for others their are thinking that they don't want to adapt in the culture of the land. Many people have different reasons)
I never heard one said that he is allowed to say racist stuff.Racist idiots are everywhere, but as far as I know everyone hates them. Well maybe I am with the 'wrong' kind of people lol
>What people are calling political correctness is just societies developing new sensibilities. Happens all the time.
Sensibilities are okay, over sensibilities are not okay. I could be angry for example that you call my friends euros. That sounds degrading. Please refer to them like, Spanish, or French people.
I know I am nitpicking, but I want that you understand my point of view. Someone will always feel offended. It is impossible to make everyone happy. The world should not take care, you should.
>All that said, So much of what's being freaked out over at the moment on the internet is just part of the performative outrage of children/teens.
The problem here is, that in the past, you had your small group of people to talk to. No one bets an eye.
Now everyone can talk really stupid stuff and there will be someone other who thinks that is super duper.
That is the problem. People don't scrutinise thinks anymore, just because someone is screaming that it has to be true.
I met so many people that did not though about the future and I don't mean in 5 years. I mean in 20 or 50 years.It is clearly not the end of the world. But it is worrying
I don't know… Maybe I am wrong. I guess It always depend on the circumstances. We so often think that stuff is black and white but mostly it is grey.
Sorry I did not want to sound rude or something. I agree with you on the point with the queer and with the internet.
Now I ranted…
