On a similar note, I was reading somewhere that the one minute's applause that replaced the oft-dissed one minute's silence has now itself been deemed as being offensive - this time to deaf people.

As a result, many eventgoers are now being asked to pay their respects by lifting their arms and starting to shake them in a movement called "Jazz hands" (careful how you type that!).

Wonder how long it will be before a blind person finds out about and is offended by what is a very visual and therefore surely highly discriminatory way of paying one's respects

I found out at work the other day that apparently using the phrase "brain storm" is offensive to people with epilepsy.

I was deemed offensive for a while and was replaced by the phrase "brain shower" :? but apparently it's okay now.

No I'm really not. Some lass had been to some work related thing or t'other and they were told this.

I don't think it was like an order or anything but a heads up you know?

It's fucked though, when this moronic bullshit happens it means a cause something more legitimate gets labelled as PC gone mad, and it just gives those alt right siding dickheads another thing to make more pointless noise about.

I remember watching a show where they had a few student union heads from UK universities. They were talking about political correctness. One example is for Halloween, most of them had banned Pocahontas outfits, sombreros and men dressing up in woman's clothes as costumes for the student union Halloween party. The reason being this is racist against, native Americans, Mexicans and offensive to transgender and any transvestite students.

Unfortunately the question of, was this researched or polled amongst the "offended" or just put in to practice was never asked.

Well, if you're okay with it I guess that's what matters most. Still, I can't imagine how you could have offended anybody, let alone to the point of them replacing you with a phrase like that.

I heard a woman on the streetcar use the term 'brain freeze' and I hoped to hell there weren't any Inuit folk within earshot.
