Ok, we've been over this before: no one wants to hear every thought that stomps through your head. No one needs to hear every word of every conversation you have. Every so often, you have a conversation at a volume at which a
person would have a conversation, and it's delightful. If you could just learn to a) regulate the volume of your speaking voice (which is being really, really generous, because you and I BOTH know you can, you just choose to attempt to be the center of attenion all the FRAKING time), and b) not reiterate every conversation you have to everyone within earshot, that'd be great.
No seriously, STFU.
"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."
