That's just a nasty way to be. I'm on the left, I generally disagree with the right, and I cannot understand how anyone can watch FoxNews without feeling sick to their stomach. But calling everyone on the other side of the fence names isn't helpful to anyone, and in fact gives them more fodder. Don't do it. Be better than that.
"And politically correct is the worst term, not just because it’s dismissive, but because it narrows down the whole social justice spectrum to this idea that it’s about being polite instead of about dismantling the oppressive social structure of power.
Fun Fact: When you actively avoid being “PC,” you’re not being forward-thinking or unique. You’re buying into systems of oppression that have existed since before you were even born, and you’re keeping those systems in place."
