Political Correctness & Social Justice

Reblogged from TezMillerOz:

"And I don't remember using the phrase PC Police but yes - as a writer I feel as artists are severely inhibited by political correctness. And I have very very often felt a victim of people who want to sanitize the world."

Not my quote. I disagree with it. I don't see political correctness and social justice as being bad things. I think they're GOOD things. And thus I tend to view those AGAINST PC and SJ as...well, I kind of wonder if they would prefer to say their racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist things without consequence.


But, gosh, y'all - there are writers who feel SEVERELY INHIBITED because in public they're not allowed to share all their -ist and -phobic views. Won't somebody please think of the -ist and -phobic artists?! *headdesk*

In fact, they're totally allowed to share all their -ist and -phobic views. They just don't want to be called out on them.
