Just had like, an hour-long debate with a dude on IRC who is the EPITOME of a privileged white male whose arguments against “PCness” I could probably literally fill a whole bingo card with.
“words don’t harm people”
“what if <insert ludicrous BS hypothetical>”
“<slur> has evolved to mean _____ now, nobody uses it for ____ anymore”
My freaking favorite:
“you know why there are no slurs for white men? because we don’t let things like that get to us”
