Definition of “political correctness”

I got this in an email; I can’t vouch for the veracity of the anecdote – whether it happened, or whether the definition was created by someone else like a journalist or political commentator rather than some anonymous student, but regardless, it is spot-on.

There’s an annual contest at Bond University, Australia, calling for the most appropriate definition of a contemporary term.

This year’s chosen term was “political correctness”.

The winning student wrote: 

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and promoted by mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of shit by the clean end.”

Perhaps the most truthful words ever spoken.
