Political Correctness

The issue is not my language but your ego.

Political correctness (abbreviated PC) means pseudoleftist censorship and propaganda forced into language, science, art and generally all of culture, officially justified as "protecting people from getting offended". This does an immense harm to society as it is an artificially invented "issue" that not only puts people and science under heavy control, surveillance, censorship and threat of punishment, normalizing such practice, but also destroys culture, freedom of art and research and creates a great conflict between those who conform and those who value truth, freedom of art, science and communication, not talking about burdening the whole society with yet another competitive bullshit that doesn't have to exist at all. Political correctness is mainly a political tool that allows elimination (so called cancelling) and discrediting opposition of pseudoleftist political movements and parties, as well as brainwashing and thought control (see e.g. Newspeak).

Example of politically correct ASCII art. Note the absence of any content that might offend someone. Still the art is imperfect because it has a white background which might be seen as racially offensive.

The whole idea is basically about pushing the mentality of seeing certain words, pictures and other objects as inherently "offensive" to specific selected minorities (currently mostly women, gay, negros and other non-white races, trannies and fat and disabled people), even outside any context, and about constantly fabricating new reasons to get offended so as to fuel the movement. For example the word black box is declared as "offensive" to black people because... well, like, black people were discriminated at some point in history and their skin is black... so... the word black now can't be said? :D WTF. A sane mind won't understand this because we're dealing with a literal extremist cult here. It just keeps getting more ridiculous, for example feminists want to remove all words that contain the substring "man" from the language because... it's a male oppression? lol... anyway, we can no longer use words like snowman, now we have to say snowperson or something :D Public material now does best if it doesn't walk on the thin ice of showing people with real skin color and better utilize a neutral blue people :D Fuck just kill me already lmao.

Political correctness goes strictly against free speech, it tries to force people "to behave" and be afraid of words and talking, it creates conflict, divides society and also TEACHES people to be offended by language -- i.e. even if a specific word wouldn't normally be used or seen in a hostile way (e.g. the master branch in git repositories), political correctness establishes that NOW IT IS OFFENSIVE and specific minorities SHOULD take offense, even if they normally wouldn't, supporting offended culture and fight culture. I.e. political correctness can be called a cancer of society. LRS must never adhere to political correctness!

Of course, political correctness doesn't stop at censoring simple words, don't get mistaken. Facts in textbooks and encyclopedias such as those regarding race and sex differences are censored and replaced with lies with the help of soyence. Political correctness tries to forcefully dictate standards of a culture by an extremely rapidly changing fashion, e.g. the standard of beauty, politeness and so on -- last week we celebrated the international gender fluid day but THIS WEEK we celebrate fat disabled women with acne issues, all TV ads must have at least one crippled landwhale or else you're cancelled. If you can't keep up with their latest inventions you'll be executed -- on no, you used the term "mentally ill"! HOW DARE YOU THAT'S SO OFFENSIVELY AGGRESSIVE YOU HAVE TO SAY NEURODIVERGENT, you're basically Hitler now (but wait until next week when the word neuro itself becomes offensive).

OK, let's get back to a bit more serious. Just for the autistic neuroretarded people persons that might misunderstand our stance on social equality: LRS is for complete social equality of all people and eventually all living beings, however political correctness has nothing to do with achieving this goal, in fact it mostly goes against it, it creates huge amount of collateral damage, it divides people and fuels social conflict rather than calm it. We try to not cure symptoms of a shit society by harmful means but rather address the root cause by transitioning to a good society without conflict where there is no need for censorship, fact distortion and brainwashing to prevent discrimination. In the society we envision accepting facts about physical inequality does not imply an attack or discrimination at all as humans don't compete by their abilities, in such society the idea of political correctness is as ridiculous as e.g. arguing we should be creating numerically more inclusive datasets with higher leading digits as by Benford's law smaller digits are are a statistical majority that oppresses higher digits.
