    Influential is too nice of a word for what it is and what it’s doing. I say PC is an infringement on our 1st amendment rights. The government has a lot of nerve telling us what we can’t say and what we can.

    It comes and goes. In the early part of the 1980s it seemed to be the fashionable thing. At least it was where I lived.

    Liberalism is the cause, and it started about 20 years ago.....very gradually so it would not cause a ruckus in the American culture. Now we are entangled, entrenched in PC.

    The good news is we have Donald Trump, our President, who doesn't give a sh it about PC. Consequently, more citizens are not as afraid as before, but it will take years to rid ourselves of this cancer. Will probably never go away.

      Vox editor Dara Lind summarized the definition as "a brand of right-wing hypersensitivity that gets just as offended by insults to American pride and patriotism (like protests against the president-elect or "The Star-Spangled Banner") as any college activist gets over insults to diversity."

    "PC" is like a cancer! A slow growing cancer. It began in the 70's and as more "pc" friendly politicians came into office the radical "pc" left took power over our lives. They became embolden. Because the politicians in office will support their "pc" ideas. Now ww have almost nazi germany. Watch what you say! Like that customer who went off on the stupid mexican girl working at the coffee shop? He got fired and literally run out of new york.

    Since people bravely started raising the topic of inequality to make life fairer . I guess it started a while ago in the U.K with Emmeline Pankhurst fighting for the women's right to vote . Was it the 1920's ?

    Well, I like to trace it back to when Slick Willie went on MTV as a candidate. He was asked the inane question, "Boxers or briefs?" And he answered, and played the saxophone. It has been CRAZY ever since.
