I've never understood censorship. People who are will self-select out of civilized society. Let them do their thing. If they're an , why would you care about their opinion of you anyway? Think I give a when some calls me a tranny? no, it's more of a reflection of how delicate they are than it is any kind of reflection about me. That type of person has no worth to me so why would I care what they think? And more importantly, why can other people not adopt this same mindset? I think we should all put forth a reasonable effort to be polite, but outside of that, I don't think anyone needs to break their back trying to bend over for "political correctness".

Snowflakes. Everyone is a snowflake nowadays

It is being pushed under discrimination
This only applies to healthcare workers dealing with senior citizens. Which is oddly specific. I still disagree with it. I figure that people who need healthcare are customers, and the facilities they receive care at are owned by people who want their customers to be comfortable, and thus the employers will just fire anyone who creates a problem in the workplace. No law needed. I think it's crazy that you could only ever refer to someone as a gigantic and it would be totally legal, but refer to them as the gender they were born rather than the gender they want to express themself as and suddenly it needs to be illegal.

Social issues sort themselves out over time. Look at the gays. Gay people face so little everyday discrimination from the general public compared to what it was like some number of years ago, but yet it's still legal to tell a gay couple that they're a couple of disgusting . Yeah, it makes you an to do it, but it's not illegal. But so few do it because now rather than gays being shamed, the are being shamed. It's a self solving problem.

It's not even half as bad as everyone thinks it is. All the tinder here are liberal retards but as far as people I've met organically go, I've yet to run into more than a couple libtards. Almost everyone is somewhere between conservative and libertarian. It is unusual to be conservative when it comes to social issues here but almost everyone I've met is fiscally conservative which is the part I care about
