A lot has happened in the last decade — including a lot of things being called racist, sexist, offensive, or insensitive.
Here, in no particular order, are 24 of the most absurdly politically correct moments of the decade:
1. A college diversity-training course taught that it was culturally insensitive to expect people to be on time.
A Clemson University training course taught its attendees that it is offensive to expect people to be on time, because “time may be considered fluid” in other cultures.-
2. The phrase “trigger warning” was deemed a trigger.
According to a piece in Everyday Feminism, “trigger warning” is actually in itself a trigger — because it could “be re-traumatizing for folks who have suffered military, police, and other forms of violence.” (The piece recommended using “content warning” instead.)
