"One step that would certainly help us get to better communication  is the permanent retirement of the phrase 'political correctness,' an expression that has long been used to ridicule verbal sensitivity as a kind of tiresome, constraining etiquette and is now invoked to justify all sorts of offensive language and thinking. Trump used the phrase like a bludgeon during the campaign.

"Insulting people isn’t 'authentic' or bravely 'politically incorrect.' It’s insulting. If we want to heal as a country, we ought to start by being honest about our language and its effects on each other. No matter what our leaders say." ~~Ben Slote in the Meadville Tribune today
