Femme thinks that ALL Western people censor themselves and don't speak their minds because of political correctness. People, why do you do that?????

I have been forever accused of being politically incorrect, but in reality, I think Femme has a valid point. People in America are way to sensitive to hurting peoples feelings, not because of a sense of propriety. Nobody really gives a crap about anyone, but we are afraid of being sued. We have been conditioned to deny our feelings and suppress our real thoughts so that we can keep our material wealth. I say to hell with it...I don't have any material wealth anyway!

I think tact is important because without that people are not going to listen to you anyway. Communication is about getting your point across and if you are too caustic in your approach people won't listen. I am very blunt and I've noticed people either appreciate it or are really weirded out by it. I have gotten more tactful over the years and have noticed people are able to hear what I am saying much better (and I have more friends). I appreciate people who let me know what they are thinking and feeling, I do respond better though if it is done with a little care and concern.

I don't think there's any such thing as political correctness, it's all political brainwashing (very much like in communism and such). When you're in Turkey, you can't criticize Turkey, but you can criticize openly everything else. When you're in Europe you can't criticize Islam... etc. etc... It's all about politics, political allies, political interests and how people are brainwashed.

As far as interpersonal communication, I agree with Badia.

Now that is an inaccurate statement. Ms. Badia is anything but boring.
