Subject: PC Language
After reading two student term papers on politically correct language (one
on parody PC and one on serious PC), I am having a hard time distinguishing
between parody and serious intent.
My question, however, has to do with who makes up the body of PC activists.
College professors? Feminists? Special ed teachers? Minority activists?
Males who want to work at Hooters? The super-ego?
Where does this euphemistic/revisionist energy come from?
