Lily: One problem with political correctness is that it's enforced by an elite group of people who push their own ethical worldview onto everyone. Like a girl from India who got forced into a marriage at age eighteen... gets called out for being transphobic because she's not familiar with Euro-centric progressive terminology. As if SHE has any idea what the freedom to express internal gender is like. Most people who LIVE with the systemic issues that affect minority groups haven't LEARNED PC language, and THEY end up getting TARGETED for it.
Simon: Yeah, it's not a perfect system. Political correctness is a model for showing sensitivity towards minority groups. But it only works if we continually strive for a more thorough understanding of how to respect them, rather than enforcing strict rules with an iron rod.
